A short story about desert journeys and commands.
I found this short story really difficult to concentrate on. I’m not sure if it was my mood, or the story just really didn’t grab my attention. I have a sinking feeling it may just be the fact that this just wasn’t my “type” of story…
Having said that. I did like the style of the writing. The skills and talent were pretty good. Just not quite what I wanted in a short story. It just didn’t quite sweep me away…
When all was said and done though. I did read this short story, and enjoyed the vivid descriptions throughout this. Maybe it’s a short story that I need to read in the future…
