    Story
    "a shortstory that later lead to a well loved book"

    this short story is different than the full length book although it has mani simularaties. it is a fine story but the full book is buch better with fuller character and backstory. i resomend both but they each stand on there own.

    "Poorly done."

    Best parts of story were cut out. Having read the book the ending was totally changed. don't waste your time.
