I loved this short story and feels that anyone who comes along this little book will enjoy the few minutes of entertainment.

This is the second story I've read by Vincent Hobbes. I appreciate that this story is free and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The author creates a great character in Mr. Strauss, the owner of a strange bookstore, where books are censored, but for good reason. Great plot, great characters, great ending!

This short story was very interesting and kept my attention through to the end. I look forward to reading more from this author.

What a good short story (46pgs.). A good twist on the small book store. What if?

Was a little slow getting going but the ending was clever. Worth the 20 minutes to read it.

This is a great short story. The book store is a little shop of horrors. Vincent Hobbes tells a malicious story with a twist that is sure to please any fan of horror.

Not what I expected..all in all it was a very good read. Short, but good. I would recommend this to those who are into Stephen King, Dean Koontz and any other authors who write about the strange and macabre.

This was an imteresting concept. To read a book that comes to life. Most of us read to destress our mind. This a a good quick read with a surprise ending.

What a great short story! The story captures you from the start. The story is quite unique, too. The ending was kind of odd and I found myself re-reading the ending several times. Each time I re-read the ending, I formed different theories as to the intent of the ending.
