    Creepy

    Finally, some older ghost. At least I think they're older than the one in Eleven O'clock Fright and Coryana. This story was just plain creepy. So tense I had to stop reading for the night when I was done.

    It was an OK short story of the paranormal/supernatural sort, no

    It was an OK short story of the paranormal/supernatural sort, nothing exceptional. The little twist was a nice touch.

    The eBook edition was formatted well with no errors.

    Short but worth a buck

    This reminds me of a scary story you'd hear at a slumber party, only well told. Short, but lingering, so it's worth a dollar.

    Quick but scary.

    It's like a shorter version of a Scribner book, but it's still really good.

    It was okay.

    A little scary. Started out well, but just seemed to fizzle out as it went along. The ending was weak. Not one of this author's best. But, I think the story contained a lesson to heed.

    Too simplistic...too predictible

    As a writer/reviewer and pasr English/literature/communications educator, I was very disappointed in this book. Though I have no idea of the writers age, the writing style struck me of that of a late Elementary or early Junior High student. Were I the writer, I would pull this from B&N and do a serious re-write. In my gradebook, it would be a C+ at best. Sometimes less is more but in this case, nothing would be better.

    Nine (9) Pages !?! *****

    Only NINE Pages, and three were book/publisher info!!! I was hoping for a quick, good scare. Nope! Didn't come close. I'm so disappointed. Especially considering the reviews.

    Intriguing.

    Interesting read, but a litle short on substance even for a short story. However, so well written that I actually would like to know more!

    Good

    Modern story of the old ghosts in the car on a backroad. Better ending than what I thought was going to happen. Good short story.
