One of the best novella's I have read in some time. The story doesn't give away the twist too soon and is subtle in its' approach.

This is the first book by keene I have read. I'm not sure if it is indicative of his style or not. I can say that this was a quick read and went down with the minimum of fuss. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and never regretted spending the money to buy it. That said... yeah, I figured out the twist by the beginning of the second chapter. Beyond that though, for such a short book I felt that there is a lot of unneeded fluff in it. The main character, for example, didn't need to be gay. I don't really care either way... but for a short story anything that doesn't concern the plot has to be stripped out and the main characters sexuality has no effect on the plot. I also felt the end came more in a flood of expositiin rather than organically. Good read though.

Brian Keene's first self-published novella about a man who wakes up to find his partner and adopted daughter gone, and his neighbors missing inexplicably, with his street shrouded in a gray haze is frightening and heart wrenching. Not as extreme as some of his work but still worthy and shows the breadth and richness of his talents.

Unique story by Brian Keene. Short but fast-paced.

I had it figured out in the first few pages. I would still think it was worth reading if it was free. Since it wasn't, all I can say is I wouldn't tell my friends to read it. I think it was about 50 pages with no sex, violence, profanity or plot.~~ Seahag

Excellent novella. I had no idea the twist until close to the end. Brian Keene is a great story teller. I'd definitely recommend this book.
