this is a 64-page short story or novella!

This is getting bad reviews because folks have downloaded it, expecting a full price book at the sale price of 99 cents -- but it's only 64 pages! So be warned.

    Great author

    I enjoyed this short story but sure wish it was a book. It ended way too quickly. But it was a reminder of how much I have enjoyed the other books written by Weiner and I will read more of her.

    28 pages long

    Seriously. Its 28 pages long (not the 64 someone else says). It's good... but it's very very very short. The 'book' has 160 pages but thats just excerpts of her other books.

    Consultant Piper's husband tells her he's leaving her as she leaves for a business trip. But then a volcanic eruption stops her trip. In about 10 pages she deals with it. Not much else you can say about a 28 page story.

    Wanted it to be a whole novel

    This story is so engrossing that if it was turned into a whole novel, I would read it in one setting!
