    Too short

    The story was too short to get into either of the two characters. He is obviously a sadist and a psychopath. Of course, he does not see himself that way.

    The plot: He dismembers his girlfriend (?) slowly, a piece at a time, almost nightly. It is surprising that there is anything left of her. Then, he decides to carry her in a suitcase, even though he does not think she is as much "fun" anymore. The end.

    A true psycho sexual sadist would just have killed her and kidnapped a new girl, regardless of the time invested in this one. This is why I do not feel that the main character is realistic.

    There are a few recent cases of men who keep kidnapped girls for years. But, they kill them when they get too old or the novelty wears off. Or, the girls escape. It is rare for this kind of person to keep someone around for three years, especially if he no longer has "fun" with her.

    I believe that the author has potential. But, some additional character research would have been appropriate. Including some psychological descriptions regarding the girl's thoughts would have been good. To my knowledge, there are no cases of a psycho carrying around a mutilated living girl inside a suitcase, for his own ease of use.

    It seems that the author was attempting to shock and disturb the reader with some two dimensional gratuitous violence. It did not work for me. The situation is implausible. Had the story contained more realism, and more detailed characters, then it would have gotten more stars.

    Weird

    I'm still trying to decide if I like the story or not. It's a bit gruesome, but if you like that sort of thing, you might enjoy this story. It's very short, so it won't take long at all to read, maybe 5 minutes.

    Six pages

    Waste of time. No plot, no character developement and no ending really. Third grade writting attempt that would have been given an F.

    Okay

    Kinda sick and not really a whole story. No beginning and no end. But a really warped sense of humor might smile a little ....
