This short story really got me hooked quick. I find the concept of the interaction between an artist and the mythical character of a muse very appealing. Being an artist, I really associated with the character. He faces a dilema that many artists face: be an individual, follow your muse, and not be in the limelight or conform to the popular standard or demand, sactifice your individuality, and soar to stardom. I was hoping for the author to shed some insight into the issue, but I was extremely dissapointed. The end of the story came abruptly, felt out of place, and did not seem to have been given as much consideration as the rest of the story. It left me feeling cheated, feeling like I had wasted my time. I would have very much liked to have seen this concept further explored, but I feel like the author abandoned it. The muses are definitely not amused!

This was a stupid book. I really regret wasting my money for this. I was not able to get the point of the story & am not sure the author was able to either. Don't waste your money.
