Response – Darkness

Reading: “Darkness” by Nathan Moon

Impressions: The language use in this story was clever and sophisticated. I was impressed by the vocabulary choices! I was hoping that the story would focus more on a human character than it did. It was a little tough for me to relate to the story until the ending was revealed.

I like how certain lines in the story illustrated how meaningless gossip spreads through a small town. Effective use of repetition.

I think that the author could have taken a further step and personified the light, making it “The Light.” It, in a sense, becomes the central character of the story and the mystery that hooks the reader in.
