    more from this reviewer

    Interesting Idea but

    the book is only five pages. This work does convey a certain base level of horror and I think it's probably appropriate as a short horror story, but if you're looking for depth or for a little more from a work, this one isn't for you. I don't know I feel like if there were even five to seven more pages fleshing this out it could go from meh to excellent. Just a thought though.

    Very worth reading!

    These ten pages were worth my time, i love Atkinson's type of writing, and that it makes you think.

    I wish it was longer

    This "book" had an interesting concept, yet it was only 10 pages long. It was well written and could have been great if the author had only taken the time to expand his ideas.

    Not worth your time.

    This ten page "novel" was the biggest waste of my time, ever. You might not believe me, becuse I myself didn't believe the reviews myself. I am doing this for your own safety- trust me, it's that bad. It doesn't even deserve a star, but my nook won't let me rate it as a zero- the true rating. I even wrote a poem about it. It goes like this.
    There's a reason some books are free,
    Some are too bad, some are too sad-
    The whole point is, don't read them kids.

    This is the real truth.

    2.5 stars for brevity!

    I thought this was a full novel, but it's only one, very brief, story. The writing was excellent and the story left a creepy feeling within me, a sign that it was good indeed. the only reason I'm not giving it a higher rating is because this was a mere 9 pages and really should of been a full length novel!

    Disappointing

    Thought this was at least a short story - hardly even qualifies as one. Too short, a teaser.

    This was an ok book

    This book was ok because i thought that if this book had more of a begining and more of an end and did have more pages than i would have been better! I think that it wa a wast of time but if you want to see what this book is like trust me you will have time to read it because it is only 10 pages.

    Ultra-short and confusing

    To short to make sense (only 5 pages). Not nearly enough detail. After reading you are only left with questions. But it would easy enough to decide for yourself, you can read the book in less than five minutes and it's free.

    Creepy, Odd, Spooky and stupid

    Thank God it was free? It does bring to mind the plight of the homeless. I'm guessing that's what this author wanted to do. Or they sipped too much wine from their paper bag. Not worth buying.
