    A Complete Letdown

    After reading the reviews on this (very) short story, I was quite excited to start reading. Now, ten minutes later, I can say that you absolutely should not waste your time or your money on this garbage. The format, made up entirely of Tweets, is hard to follow, while the story itself is so under-developed and convoluted that I really regret this purchase. Do yourself a favor - don't heed the misguided tweens who drool over this piece of garbage. If you are looking for inexpensive zombie fiction look into Mark Tufo or Dana Fredsti

    Could have been better

    I LOVE Joe Hill most of the time. This stort...not his best. It was ok. N0s4A2 was fantastic. Hoping he'll be doing more of that type of work soon,

    a Joe Hill short

    Very short. 27 pages on my nook. You are buying a name. Even at a buck, I have gotten better books FREE! So you are paying to read a tweet book and you are buying because it is stephen kings son. I give this a three and that's generous. It did keep my attention, but if you type in horror, low to high, you can get a better full length NOVEL free or for a buck. Dissappointing. A buck would have served me better some place else.

    A short zombie story

    Having $1.03 left on a B&N gift card, and enjoying zombies, I took advantage of this story. Told through the tweets of a teenage girl, it is a story of her and her family's return trip from a Colorado ski vacation. Unfortunately, dad's desire to go off the beaten path has dire consequences for the family.

    While this is an interesting story, I think it could've been served better by a slightly longer length (the whole file is only 27 pages and also features a segment of another of his works).

    BOTTOM LINE: If you're a fan of this author, you will probably want this work for your collection. If not, it is a decent book to help clean out that last dollar from a gift card.

    Not Bad

    Very interesting. Perfect for the time, seeing as these are our main sources of mass communication. Simple and creepy. Enjoyable.

    A tweet story. Fits right in with the day and age and how we are

    A tweet story.
    Fits right in with the day and age and how we are absorbed in
    our electronic gadgets.
    Yes, its only 27 pages long, but come on folks...its only $1.03
    It's good. Freaked me out and made me think are we that absorbed
    that we really could miss the signs that were so obvious? GREAT!

    Definitely one of the creepiest stories I have ever read. I just got the chills thinking about what to write about and I read it a month ago. Read this story.

    Worthy read

    This short story isn't bad by any means. Definitely a good story however I found reading in the form of tweets a little odd.

    first let me say i LOVE joe hill and i will read ANYTHING he writes. i loved the idea of this book and i think so much more could have been explored with this idea. it is a good short story (very short)but it's a little flat.
