This was a well written short story that kept you interested in really trying to figure out what was going on. Was he really dead? How could he be dead and no one would notice? Why was it such a bad thing to say you were dead? It was weird and when it ended I just felt like saying..."huh?" but, it was well written and it kept me interested so I give it 3 stars.

In this funny story, when Sean woke up, he realized that he was dead. He tried to convince his parents that he was dead, but they didn't believe him and became very upset. They began to scream at each other and blame each other for causing Sean to have the condition that made him think he was dead. Then, later, at school, he recognized that a girl in his class was also dead. He asked her about it and she agreed, she was dead. Why weren't people noticing that they were dead? Was it some kind of conspiracy? How could Sean make his parents understand that he was not crazy? What he could he do to prove that he was dead? Read the humorous story and find out.

I really enjoyed the way this story was written. I liked the way the story begins, and how the author does a good job of pulling you into the main character's world.

The author did a very good job of keeping me interested, making this one of those stories I had to read til the end. That's where a ran into a problem...I didn't understand what thoughts the author wanted to leave the reader with or what message was meant to be conveyed.

If I understood the ending better I would have given this story five stars...but I would definitely be willing to read more by this author if other stories are available.

This is not a book or even a short story, basically. It's like an outline of a possible story but that's it. A guy wakes up, claims he is dead, his parents think he's nuts, he finds a girl who claims she's dead and he kills himself and wakes up.

All the makings for a possible very good book but, in this form, it's an outline and nothing more. Nothing makes sense, nothing is given a frame of reference, no back story, nothing.

I got this as a free download so I didn't have anything to lose by reading it. I kept finding myself wanting to like it more than I did. Honestly I think the story could have been really good as something longer but what was left just seemed to be missing something like the other work I've read from this author. Something makes me want to like it, but then it just seems to be missing something for me.

I picked up this story for two reasons: 1st, I liked the title; 2nd, most of the reviews were favorable.

Now the story's initial opening caught my interest, but it failed to hold it for long. There wasn't any tension and the character wasn't fully developed. Nothing happened. There wasn't a real plot to the tale. In the end, the story proved an easy read, but a boring read.

As a lover of short stories, I go in hoping for a gem of a twist. For me, in an oddly uncertain way, this story pretty much delivered.
Most of it is an easy read. But at the end, I could only cringe and wonder if....

It was a fun quick, well written story. Very much worth my time. This story is one I'll to ponder over in the days to come. I'm very glad I read it.
