4.0 out of 5 stars Poignant but not particularly horrifying February 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While Amazon has classified this story as horror, I'm not sure that I would. I wasn't as much scared as I was just deeply involved in the story. The characters seemed to come to life, which is something that I find rarely happens in short stories. It was quite refreshing, though, to actually care what happened to the people the story.

The plot begins with a nameless man waiting at a street corner for a bus. When a desperate woman asks for his help in order to save her baby he agrees, hoping that she isn't a scam artist ready to steal his money. He doesn't realize that he is getting involved in a sort of club. A dangerous club that wants this woman back...at all costs.

I have to admit that there were a couple intense moments in the download, but the focus of the ebook is in storytelling rather than action. Although this took away from the scare factor, I think it also really worked well. I'm pretty sure that the way this story was told is the reason I was so involved with the characters and what was happening to them.

There are a few technical issues with the story such as incorrect subject/verb agreement, missing punctuation, etc. However, nothing was overly glaring; another edit or two should iron out the mistakes. Some people may find the ending to be incomplete, but I rather liked it.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It definitely made me reflect on life, although I'm not sure if that's what the author intended. I'd classify it more as science fiction than horror, but know that it does have a couple of mild jump scenes. I'd recommend it to people who are looking for a short story to read that's definitely unique.
