Stellar

This author has really fine-tuned his skills as a writer. This story was a joy to read – the irony of our human nature at play, the added urgency and severity to the established scam we still fall prey under.

I also commend the author for touching on the idea of suicide from a controversial yet reasonable point of view. The over-all reasoning of the character is sober, cutting through sheep mentality with crisp clarity only to question the benefits of such a rebellion - a metaphor of life in general perhaps?

Satisfactory rebellion despite looming doom

Yet another great story by this author. While original in details, visuals and configurations, the cynic in me sees the sad metaphor of the real life humans repeat over and over: the working ants supporting the uppers with hopes under delusions as their reward. It is also another sad reminder of how ignorance is often the happier trail. That being said, the story is yet very entertaining, and while you don’t anticipate a happy ever after, there is still a lot of satisfaction felt from the character's acts of rebellion and deviations from the norm - from the expected. Nicely done!

Multidimensional and original.

This story is far the best I've read by this author. His stories are always very original and imaginative, along with depth, but his writing style has greatly improved in this story. It was well balanced - just the right amount of detail, description and explanation to support the story. I love how the author plays with contrasting ideas and mentalities. It questions how we view ourselves as evolved humans, and how we might hinder further evolution by branding ourselves as a finished product only seeking to perfect its current state. The story took off quickly, and kept my curiosity throughout. The pace was perfect. I highly recommend this story - it was joy to read!

Original and Insightful

I read this story as a sequel to “All the Little People,” and found it deep, touching, insightful and creative. Part of me wanted to object to the rejection of traditional writing templates; however, the story is told exactly as it would have been told by the main character, speaking from his heart. This includes all the technical details of the contraptions and the social ponderings. The little people in the story, the homunculus, could have asked for no better ally. This is so many stories in one, making it multidimensional. It’s about the creative story surrounding the little people, about bullying, love, coming of age, and of course, about the over-all theme of our destructive programming.

Creative and thought provocing

I love this line: “Those were the good intentions which paved the road to Hell.”
In the beginning, I thought the diction was immature for this author before I realized the story was told from the voice of a young school boy – silly me!
This story is a bit uncategorized, as it starts out representing one thing, and then takes on a whole deeper meaning. When it does this, the relationship between the main characters seems undeveloped and random. Perhaps this should be forgiven considering it’s a short story? Still, nothing hits an emotional mark – it’s all intellectual algorithms. The main character’s awareness however, when he realizes he, himself, has entered the dark side, earns some points. Overall this story is entertaining and though provoking - well worth the read!

Very Clever

I wasn't expecting rhyming, or humor, but a dark story, so I was pleasantly surprised by the lighthearted cleverness of this tale. It was entertaining to read and left a grin on my face. The scene described could actually set the stage for many dark bedtime stories to come.
