REVIEW - Too short for my liking!

The Alchemist - Paolo Bacigalupi
I read this short story is about an afternoon and found it to be very good.  The characters are very relatable and I found myself cheering them on.

BUT in my opinion, it's really too short. I don't like how it leaves you hanging at the end. The author should have continued the story and made this into a full novel. It left me feeling so unfulfilled....
