The Library

By: Bel Iver

Status: In Progress


In one room sits rows of books. In another, waiting children. Behind the desk sits the Librarian. Each child must pick a book, make their choice; the system is perfect, a well-oiled machine... until one child catches the Librarian's attention. Then everything changes. (Short story that's a bit open-ended) {COMPLETE, despite the labeling.}

    I hope you realize just how shockingly competant a writer you are. This pulled me in from the very second I found it. You described the scenes well, the character descriptions, the emotions of uncertainty, curiosity and wonder. I can't fathom what kind of world this is, and what people do with their lives before their 'choosing', but that's part of the appeal. The very last sentence was unexpected and entirely surprising, but it formed a suitable ending, and I loved that. It's such a shame that this will not be continued, but it leaves the reader to wonder, long after they finished reading the final letter. You're able to make people engage and ponder with such a small story, and that's incredibly rare. I could learn a lot from your work, and I hope others come across this, too!
