I wish they had an "average" star. This is a short story 18pgs, about a guy who plays a game with the devil. Most of it is same old until they have to pick the game. I thought it was funny how the main character ended up picking the game. The devil lost no surprise, but when the main character goes back to his job, thats when the story gets confusing. Mr. Cruz did a solid job up until then. The descripstions of the devil were great, & I liked the humor of the character being too smart to play chess with the devil & offfering other choices. Scrabble would have been great! They pick the game , golf, not original but ok, they play the good guy wins. Now when he goes back to work he is going backwards in counting? Mr. Cruz needs to better explain. I think what happens is the charater has been stacking "worlds" & now that he has won, he gets to start at the begining & the worlds are happy? G. L. to Mr Cruz
I didn't really like this one but, you might. It only takes a few minutes to read.
