“The human body is highly resilient, but what happens when a man’s own body decides to betray him? Ted, after struggling with weight issues his entire life, is about to find out.
This psychological horror short story contains language and situations which may not be appropriate for some readers.” (description from Goodreads)
I really enjoyed this short story from Michael K. Rose. This one was a bit different from the other stories I’ve read of his, being that it’s not a science fiction short.
I found the character well developed, as well as the “other” character involved in the situation. The way Rose created the conflict and let the story unfold was enjoyable to read and thought-provoking to those who are interested in just how much the human body is capable of.
I was surprised to find such a well written story, of this type, in the short length that is it. There was no words wasted to get the story out, and that’s a good sign of quality writing.
I might have to take a look at Rose’s other non-science fiction writing now.
