Synopsis: A visually impaired woman has to decide whether to trust her date when he asks an important question.
Bookish Things: 9 pages. This story possesses a simplistic cover, I still quite like it though.
Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $0.87
Blind date is a newer short story by Tony. It’s very sensory, often painting the picture of the scene with the sense of smell or sound.
For such a short story it covers a wide range of themes. Dating can be daunting for anyone, but for a vision impaired young woman, it would take more courage than most.
To me, some of the writing, particularly early on, felt disjointed and choppy. Very unlike Tony’s usual work.
I really like the idea, but this one doesn’t feel as polished as Tony’s normal work.
