Publisher's Summary

He was a little boy when they came. He couldn't remember much before it all changed. All he knew were the concentration camps, and the loudspeakers that spoke every day, saying, "We are here because we love you. Your planet will become a paradise." 

If that was the case, then why were the weak eaten in the dark?

A Perfectly-Delivered Bite-Sized Story

There is a lot good in this story, chiefly the fact that, despite being less than fifteen minutes long, it packs a lot of goodness into such a small package. It could almost better be described as a longish prose poem, and the lyrical nature of the storytelling, the understated beauty of the characterization, and the way the deliciously subtle plot sizzle along makes it a real treat for the senses. Aside from all that, the narrator really brings it all home nicely...I really do recommend this story to all who would find any of what I have described an intriguing next story

Wonderful short story

I liked the way the story was told through the eyes of each character. About the lessons of life, younger learning from older generations. Great and easy read!!!!

No nonsense about this.

The book is only 15 or so minutes long. It reminds me of the long poem of those old poets. The author isn’t too wordy, and gets his message across in a decent way.I liked it.
