i really appreciate the way that you write - you make the reader want to feel what you feel and understand what you understand. as with your poetry, this story makes the reader feel the emotions pouring out of the pages and the rage and turmoil you have created.

i think this short story seemed more like the ending to a long novel - although it does stand on its own. if you ever thought about extending it, i think the main... Show more

Wow, a very powerful piece.

However, I do have several critiques:

I LOVE the perspective of the person telling the story. He is sent out to capture someone who was seen as both a criminal and a hero. It just makes this more complex, but in an enjoyable way.
"Bleeding his life unto the floor" I adore that line.
just one thing...where's the title on the cover? But then again, Che's picture speaks for itself to those who understand the the significance.
