4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Scary Read May 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I grabbed this one when it was offered for free so I did not know what to expect. It is a very well-written short story and I felt it told a complete story (unlike some short stories that leave you wondering where the rest of the story went!)

The story itself is quite creepy, and it draws you in so you are compelled to keep reading until the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, and Suspenseful short story April 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Watchers From Within Moments, Revealed by Mark Paul Jacobs is a fascinating, and suspenseful short story!

Mark Paul Jacobs provides readers with a wild, intelligent ride in a short amount of text. He has developed an absolutely plausible set of stunning circumstances. No doubt any reader will be left contemplating the possible reality of such an event.

In this nail biter, FastTech, an American Company, makes an alarming discovery with some state-of-the-art camera equipment. Their discovery sends the entire population into a frenzy that demands government, and political involvement. The shocking end literally took my breath away.

I enjoyed this story immensely.

Disclosure: I purchased, and read The Watchers From Within Moments, Revealed without any prior arrangement with the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stellar Novelette January 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Author Jacobs does a superlative job of establishing both the threat and the humanity and then seamlessly transitions from one to the other in a style Rod Serling would have admired. The eerie underpinnings are present in every scene and the ending is pitch perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting! November 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THE WATCHERS is an interesting story that kept me reading to the end. While science is constantly making new developments, it's not often that something totally new, unexpected, and incomprehensible is discovered. This short novel focuses on such an event. When Fast Tech advances the speed of cameras, they take pictures of something incredible, something that the naked eye has never seen. While I was reading this story, I thought about how the world changed when the microscope was invented. For the first time, men were able to see things like bacteria. I can only imagine that these men were met by the same skepticism the author discusses in this story. While discovering something is definitely exciting, the author does a brilliant job of telling us the other side, the scary side. What if this discovery is not beneficial after all?

I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anybody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good short story that makes you think October 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading The Watchers from within Moments, Revealed. It's very creepy to think that there could be unseen creatures sharing the planet with us, and the ending makes you consider how you would behave if something like that ever actually happened. Since it's a short story and there isn't much time to get to know the characters, there is just enough of a backstory given that makes you want to know more. This story is very fast-paced, and I liked the use of a timeline rather than regular chapters. It also made me want to keep reading rather than thinking, "Oh, I'm at the end of this chapter so I'll take a break." Thank you, Mr. Jacobs. I'll definitely be reading more of your work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Premise but ultimately lacking depth. July 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Watchers from within Moments Revealed is written by Mark Paul Jacobs. This book is supposed to be around 120 pages long, but seems much shorter. Just to give you the heads up, it ends on 35% on the kindle. So the book is about a company (FastTech Corporation) that develops the worlds fastest camera. Upon testing the camera they discover something terrifying has been living among us. Their discovery sends the world into an uproar. I picked this book to read because that premise sounded interesting. The idea of creatures living among us that we can't see is terrifying. The story is told well enough, but as with most short stories they do not get into too much depth. There is a creepy, tension filled feeling the entire book. Jim Vedder is a likable character, but I would have like to see a little more back story on him. The story progresses at a lightning fast rate never letting you become to cozy or too involved. For such a short story it managed to tell a full story. I was pretty disappointed with the ending, but mainly because it ended at 35% and I thought there was still so much more to tell. If your in the mood for a short story that makes you feel a little like a bystander then this is still a fairly good read, just don't expect a top rate story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watchers from within Moments Revealed May 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I watch Fringe, and have a keen interest in the Observer characters portrayed within the series. As such, the title of Mark Paul Jacobs' novelette `Watchers from within Moments Revealed' piqued my interest immediately and I was compelled to read it.
I did so in one sitting in the wee hours of the morning one sleepless night. Possibly simultaneously the best and worst time to read it. The story held a fantastic premise, that within the unseen seconds of our world, something could be watching. Jacobs' description of the Watchers was shocking and the image wormed its way into my sleep deprived mind; they truly were a frightening bunch. The story's pacing and use of timeline rocketed the narration along, and I could not stop reading even if I wanted to. The end of each chapterette (as defined by a time stamp) held an enticing cliffhanger that my reader mind just had to have resolved.
The story lagged here and there, but a moment later the plot would pick up and I was once again immersed in the events of Jim Vedder and his company, Fast Tech. without giving too much away, Fast tech creates a new wave of high speed cameras that capture the fractionally short appearances of creatures dubbed as Watchers. Jim and his team do not know what they want or why they're here, but to dismiss their existence is not an option, even if the whole world is against them.
My one irk (and unfortunately is was a major one) was that Jacobs constantly referred to Jim as "Vedder". Whilst I understand it is his last name, and in a professional setting he would be referred to as such, in this context however I felt it put up a barrier between Jim and I and it unfortunately prevented me from getting too emotionally involved with him.

Mark Paul Jacobs lives in lovely Dauphin, Pennsylvania. He enjoys fishing the Canadian north, poker, and annoying his wife. He has authored two novels: How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex, a Historical Science Fiction tale set in 1914, and the hard science fiction novel: The Yaakmen of Tyrie, a powerful and mysterious tale of bravery, loss, perseverance, betrayal, and redemption. He is also quite proud of his awe-inspiring short story: The Day God Winked and his chilling novelette with the provocative title: The Watchers from within Moments Revealed, an almost universally well reviewed work for which he has written a screenplay suitable for an 'Outer Limits' episode. These and several other works are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Sony, and Smashwords.com. How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex and The Yaakmen of Tyrie is available in paperback via Createspace.com. Mark is working on a movie screenplay tentatively called Stain which is a gritty murder conspiracy based in Central Pennsylvania similar to the movie 'Fargo' or 'Reservoir Dogs'. Please enjoy his works and don't be afraid to tell him what you think on his Facebook page, twitter account, or by email. And lastly, please take the time to leave him a review of his work; it doesn't have to be long or long-winded, but it does make him feel that his hard word has touched someone's life in some way. You can leave a review wherever his books are available.
