100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#27 – Write a critique of someone’s entry in Week#26 – 100 words – “Swim or Die” from by buddhafulkat

24 Jan

To see the original story, click on “Swim or Die”

The story was chosen at random from the entries for Week#26.

The Critique..

“Swim or Die” tells the story of a group of Aquamarines facing a dire situation. With an overloaded aircraft and few supplies, it becomes obvious for many to survive, some will be sacrificed. There is fear on the faces of the rookies as they know their inexperience makes them less valuable for the survival of others. The experienced, showing calm while fearful inside, knew what choices were ahead.

This short story, a mere 105 words, sets a tense scene. The Aquamarines live by their motto, “Swim or die trying”.

Who will survive?

We are left hanging at the end.

    Thank you for writing a review on this one. You summarized it so well. I’m pulled in more by what you said about it than I am by reading the original story! Well done =)
