Anger and pain born again, even three years later
on 20 February 2013
As short fiction, the writing must be spare and to the point but still deliver a layered read and a full story in a short amount of time, and this story definitely does that. Disturbing and funny with some dark, twisted humor, it's really that fine vein of sadness under the story that bothered me most. Rachel really pulled me in; she's complicated and disturbing on many levels, and I didn't know whether to laugh, cringe, draw back in horror, or look at her with extreme pity. What a deep character to make me feel a range of emotions like that. With clever title, precise writing, flawed character, and sharp intention, the author crafted a layered and complex short story here.
