This was the
longest story in the novel. It was also the best. This story was for
the most part interesting, but it was pretty unbelievable sometimes.
It had a comic book plot to it. This story was science fiction.
This was a good
story. It showed some different types of writing that were very
unique. This story was pretty long, and it could probably have been
passed for a short novel in itself. I enjoyed reading it, because it
didn t follow the normal rules of stories and dared to be different.
It did have a pretty bad ending though. It just sort of stopped. I
wanted to find out what happened, but I was left hanging!
