    1. This story is a symbolic representation of young boy who is building towards being a man.It was generally thought provoking.



    2. I loved the descriptive and beautiful writing. I felt like I was able to clearly see the gorgeous setting of this story. It was all vivid in my mind - the rocky mountains, dry brush, and desert animals. I became so engrossed with the intense chase scene as Pepé ran for his life after throwing a knife at a man.And I couldn't help but admire Pepé's stern, strong, no-nonsense mama, especially when she said things like this:“A boy gets to be a man when a man is needed. Remember this thing. I hav [...]


    3. I read this short story for my english class to work on social criticism and good note taking skills. I had to read it 3 times before I got all the details and could actually appreciate the story. I thought that author hid some of the major moments, but emphasized more on details. Such as the first time I read it I got that he had to flee and his mother and siblings were helping him flee, but not until the 2nd time did I realize why he had to flee. The author spent one sentence on what he had do [...]


    4. Flight seemed like one long chase scene, without any action, or any chasers. It started of decent and then quagmired into a pointless, boring adventure quickly. It's hard to give a shit about a chase with just one character, a bratty murderer.The main character tries to save himself for the majority of the story. That doesn't seem like growth. It seems like obvious human nature.



    5. Read it in high school & several times since; it often comes to mind when i spend time on my property in those same steep cyns, & catch myself looking over my shoulder for the Dark Watchers
