    Thought provoking

    This booked turned out much better than I had expected. The characters were well developed by the end of the story, & left me wanting a little more. Hopefully there will be a part two.

    Thought provoking

    Since I knew this book was from a dream the author had, I kind of pictured her while I read this book. I liked it a lot. I was sad it was so short in fact, more of a short story than a book. It was very thought provoking and I kind of wish the Mind Cafe was a real place, I guess it very well could be real, unfortunately I have not been there in my dreams.

    I really liked this book I only wished it were longer. I liked the character Rosie and her courage to live with her condition. I thought the concept of how she was able to retreat into her self to a place called the mind cafe was very interesting. I also liked that people came to visit her as they die. I felt it was really sad that she was stuck there and she could only watch as family and loved ones came and went.

    I admit I like free stuff. I also admit I¿m not entirely rationa

    I admit I like free stuff. I also admit I’m not entirely rational in my thought process. For example, I happily hand over my Bouchercon and Left Coast Crime Conference fees and feel like I’ve won the lottery when I receive a bag filled with books. Seriously, this ends up being one of the major highlights of these conferences. So in my continued pursuit of this high, minus the conference fees, I have decided to scour Amazon for the best free short stories and books available. With that being said, let’s get to the review.

    This short story depressed the heck out of me. I felt like I needed prescription medication, a bottle of Bud, and an inspirational sports movie. I did watch Remember The Titans yesterday, so I suppose one out of three ain’t bad.

    Spending the entire novel in a character’s head, even at only 29 pages, is a challenge, and I’m not quite sure Lizzy Ford pulls it off effectively. The plethora of exclamation points ended up being a tad much for me, and I don’t necessarily agree with the paranormal classification. I mean, I often dream of redheaded ghosts with rocking bodies who accost me, but that’s not exactly the definition of paranormal activity.

    If you’re looking for a free read, I’d be inclined to look elsewhere. MIND CAFÉ might want to work on a better latte.

    OK

    One of my least favorite by Lizzy Ford, but only because it is hard to follow. Good story line just a little confusing!

    depressing.

    it's about dying and disapointment, but the good news is it's short. otherwise I normaly enjoy lizzy fords books and you should not judge her works based on this book alone.
