This is your brain (#*#); this is your brain on drugs (*^*&^*&%&^%&*@%&*^%@); this is this story on drugs.
I will be the first to admit that I am a very literal person. I don’t always understand allegories, similes and metaphors. This is PROBABLY the reason that I didn’t care a lot for this VERY short story.
According the the description of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE “this short story is based on the analysis and interpretation of the lyrics of a song.” The song (by the same title) was written and performed by the Beatles.
I can’t really tell you what the story is about because it truly is SO SHORT that to describe it anyway–with any number of words–would give it all away.
I know the song, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, by the Beatles. I’m not sure how this story works into the lyrics of that song. That’s about all I’m comfortable sharing.
HOWEVER, I am not an artist nor, as I said before, do I always understand art. So my review is not a condemnation of the story. It was ….interesting. Just not my cup of tea. YOU may like it.
