    Where's the story?

    The author shows he has talent, this is very well written, descriptive, and draws you in. But this was not a story, this was the prologue to a story. It's 18 pages and leaves you thinking "and then????"

    more from this reviewer

    Most of the story is well told, however the ending didn't offer

    Most of the story is well told, however the ending didn't offer the same enthusiam as the rest of the story. The ending felt rushed. My advice to the author would be to, in the future, take his time with the whole story. It's a lesson I've learned as well.

    No resolution at all.

    Campfire horror story with no ending. Very disappointing since the writing was pretty solid until the enfing.

    I think that it could have used more detail. Also that it could have explained what happed to the man. It was well, other than that. Though I hope that you are a new writer. Because if not, this was disappointing in a short story.

    I liked it

    It was meant to have an abrubt ending which many are complaining about. It leaves room for mystery. What's a horror if there is no unknown?
    I liked it and have already read other short stories this author has written. I recommend this short story.
    Of course, I always see room for improvement and rarely give five stars so four stars. I also recommend other books by this author.
