It was good... what there was of it, VERY short story. The stoy was like reading only the end of a really good book or a beginning of one... took me all of 10 minutes to read. Very well writen tho and I'd truely love to read a long story writen by this author!

Well written short story with a twist at the end. To all those who complained it was too short or didn't realize this was a short story, you need to read the description! It's listed as only using 96KB of memory. Of course, it's very short. Don't give a writer a bad review because you didn't bother to read the description. Also, you got this for free so why complain? The story was well written. Descriptive and draws you in from the first sentence. As with all of Linda Boltman's stories, it leaves the reader in a state of suspense. Most of her stories are suspense-thrillers. I would recommend them if you enjoy stories with an unusual twist.

This book does not work on my nook. It was a waste of time to find and try to read it. It looked like a good book but after trying three different ways I just gave up.

I did not realize it was a little short story or I would not have gotten it. I do not really know what to say.
