I am not sure what to think about this very short story, except that it was short and left too many questions unanswered to be a satisfying read. The storyline is overly simple, but could have been lengthened to develop the main character and the plot further. I would consider reading an extended and more detailed novella. Essentially, these people live under the ground in a colony. There is one discontented person named Jacen. He insists upon digging through the dirt in order to "find the stars". (Hence the title.) Jason continues digging, even though it goes against the advice of other residents. I was left with many questions after finishing this story. For example, I never understood why Jacen felt the need to dig? Was he crazy? Why did these people live underground? How long had the colonists been there? Did anyone remember seeing the stars in the past? Did any of it really happen the way it was perceived by Jacen, or was it all in his head? None of my questions were answered in the course of the story. I found that very frustrating. "Finding the Stars" was a very short story at only four Nook pages. It could have been a good title with an interesting premise. But, the writer decided to leave so many questions unanswered that I was confused and annoyed. The plot was scattered and repetitive. There are only so many ways to describe a man digging in the dirt regardless of his purpose in an interesting way. Not to mention the grammar/spelling errors. It was an unsatisfying read, but the author has potential. -AvidReader

Though not terribly descriptive, Finding the Star is less than 600 words but embodies an interesting story.

Interesting concept. But the story barely has a beginning (really needs more foundation) and it has an ending. The middle is missing. Really needs expansion to fill in some blanks.
