In this short story of only about 2,000 words, the author was able to set up a character, then slam the reader with a great, unexpected reveal to what’s really going on. It’d be hard to get into much detail about this story without spoiling it for readers, but I liked the way I was able to see the world through the main character’s eyes/mind. It wasn’t only what Mark was experiencing, but also the way his world works. It’s a future setting, so it’s not easy to establish its differences from our present world in such a short story. It was done effectively, in my opinion. I think there was just enough story, a great twist, and no need for more writing, though normally I’m left wanting at the end of a couple thousand words. Not the case with My Name is Mark Nine.
