The Burning (a Short Story) by Jonas Saul is a short story that I wanted to be shorter. It jumped from time to time in a way that left me confused, to say the least. I gave this book three stars. I was surprised because I usually enjoy Jonas Saul's writing.
"He stepped toward the door & left the rest of the sole of his right boot on the wooden floor behind him. When the thick winter sock on the underside of his foot touched down, Jared yelled out. The cloth couldn't hold back the searing heat from the floor."
I received a complimentary kindle copy. I'd like to thank Amazon & the publisher, Imagine Press, Inc. This did not influence my opinion for this review.
