Dream Catcher, Heart Listener - Christine E. Schulze

Ever wondered what it is like to be blind? Well you can experience a sliver of what it must be like in Dream catcher, Heart Listener.

It did feel a bit like a sensory explosion, but what could have been a truly magical experience came off a little cliche.

The premise is there, but in this instance I didn't feel like Christine delivered. There were too many times where information was dumped into the short story by way of telling not showing. I also didn't feel a connection with the characters, which is a shame.

A couple of things I noticed:
19% - 'She'd been afraid then, for (it) had been one of those...'
77% - 'Still, he (the) further she ran...'
