“She Lived in a Story” can be compared to a labyrinth, thank goodness it was less that 10 pages long. Though it could confuse some it is the confusion that is intriguing and makes the story interesting and unique. “She Lived in a Story” implies that it is about a woman who lives within something told by another but it is actually a bit more than that. There are two people living within one story and all along, not until the very end do the readers realize the author of “she”, Ofelia, is actually living there with her.
This story was a bit challenging but it was not written with complicated sentences and words that made a dictionary necessary. The story flowed. Metaphors such as one that compared a fluid story to a properly built home were aspects of the fluidity of the story itself.
