Ava’s sleep deprivation is getting worse.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.
A very awesome book cover, & great font/writing style. A very well written book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of.
Creepy; a very easy rating of 5 stars.

"...the multitude of paraphernalia next to her side of the bed attest to her struggles last night. The bag of earplugs, an empty water glass, an open packet of throat lozenges, her homoepathic sleeping pills. These were her weapons in her fight for sleep and sanity. A fight that I was entirely absent for. Hours in which she was alone in this world, while I lay right next to her."
They start to feel like strangers to each other, somehow broken.
Link to purchase: Sleep: A Short Story
I believe this was the reaction the author hoped to evoke. It truly rattled me. Now, I freely admit I was unsettled after the first reading. I waited a few days and read it once more. Yes, the reaction was the same. Anyone who is able to write a story which gets me to feel this strongly has done a fine job in telling a short story and possesses some serious skills. I will be watching for another opportunity to read more from Neve.
I recommend this for lovers of short stories, those who do not mind a bit of creepiness, and anyone else who may have high curiosity. Great piece of work!
Ava cannot sleep. She cannot turn her brain off. She's looking haggard with black smudges under her eyes. Her partner has no problem sleeping. He feels for Ava, especially as her previous boyfriend had tried to kill her. No wonder she can't sleep!
But then he discovers something she hasn't told him .... and now he's afraid to sleep.
Cleverly written psychological short story. I didn't particularly connect with either of the characters .. other than I have suffered insomnia for years. Being such a short story, there is little time for complete character building. But the author did a super job writing a complete story in very few pages.
I am not a fan of short stories, unless they are exceptional, and unfortunately this one definitely isn't as far as I am concerned, however the writing style is quite good which is why it rates 3 stars for me.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and voluntarily wrote this honest review.
JK Neve certainly knows her stuff and sets up the compelling rhythm of a seemingly simply story of Ava's insomnia.
Her partner (who's the unknown narrator), sympathises at first, but sympathy turns to fear after Ava's betrayal with another man is revealed.
Can he escape his paranoia as he seeks solace in the arms of another?
Or will the maniac's spirit pass from one tormented, sleepless soul to another with fatal consequences in a never-ending cycle?
This (free download) will keep you guessing right to the very end!
