    don't download it

    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.

    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.
