    I liked it

    I know i only gave this three stars but i will explain. This is a really fascinating story. The ideas in it are actually really thought provoking and it sort deserves four stars. But i deducted one star for the translation that leaves some sentences difficult to follow. I would have preferred a slightly different ending - perhaps another page to wrap things up slighlty better but that is just me. Its worth giving a try.

    An interesting set of short stories.

    Takes about 20-30 minutes to read and about a day to figure out what you just read. Translated to english, the first story is about a guy who has a short conversation with an alien about humanity in his sisters apartment. The other story is about a town that loses its mind over two people in a balloon.

    Huh?

    I think it's supposd to be thought provoking and insightful but the only thing it provoked in me was confusion and a slight daze of the mind.

    Makes one think

    After reading my mind kept going back to the thought of free will. And I thought; how would we have free thought if we choose to do as the alien suggests? Or not do? If one does as the alien says they may be saving their own life but it seems to me that yes or, the persons fate is already chosen. Fate cannnot be a two way road. One - live and one - die. A persons destiny is make up of a spider web of choices and decisions and free will makes it so.
