    Not That Good a Story

    I enjoy reading alternate history stories which is what drew me to this particular one. It basically deals with a nuclear war taking place between the US and USSR in 1962 around the time of the Cuban Missile crisis. It is very short. Sadly, I felt it was not that good and was very disappointed with it overall. I felt it had potential but needs to be redone and expanded by the author before the quality improves.

    Not bad but way too short for the money

    B&N needs to fix this shill game they play. $3.00 for 12 pages! Never again will I "try" something new from them

    not much of a story

    I was disapointed with this. It really isn't a story at all. Even at .99 I feel ripped off. Don't waste your money!

    13 page short story

    Absolute rip off! The entire story was 13 pages long including quotes. Completely lacking in detail and a waste of $3.00
