I am a Nana raising a handicapped grandson. Typically I try to read non-fiction, but enjoy a good thriller as well.
Ryan was barely 18 yr. old. He was good looking, popular, and likeable, yet he chose to end his own life. Why? This is the story of the dark undercurrents that run deep in our society, where the domineering seek to control, and destroy others for the feelings of power it weilds. This was a good read, but left me feeling as if the book ended in the middle of a chapter.
The book was an ok read..or listen.. Would have liked to know more and figure out why ..
this book had 11 chapters to allow us to get to know the characters and understand the story. After all of that I know the story, some of it predictable, but I don't truely feel that i know any of the characters. After 11 chapters I should know at least one of them.
Yes, Good Short Story
Liked all of the characters
The narrator's performance was a perfect match for the story and characters. A free short story of crime and consequences, well written.
This book was free via Audible so I gave it a go
"Brilliant new author!"
Can't wait to find a full length novel by this new author. Great writing and tantalising story line. Very well read too.
"great short story "
listened to this via audible. great short story well read. good plot would like to see more from this author
"Odd little book"
Strange little story, feels like there should've been much more to it and I found the reading of it distracting, the different accents etc
"Good job it was free."
Very weak and very short story. Not really worth bothering with.
Narrator did a reasonable job but she was working with poor material.
"Good short story but slightly pointless?"
I have to admit I was totally gripped throughout but it fizzled away when it just seemed like listening to a short episode of Midsummer Murder - slightly inconclusive and may have been better as an actual novel.
Great story and characters. Well written. Gripping till the end. Can't wait for more from this author.
I can't really say much more than its OK. it's fine for a freebie, give it a go for a quick story
"Good story shame about the bad language."
Good story but a shame about the swearing. A tale about brothers, envy, girls and police work.
"Good Little Short Story"
An easy listen and kept me hooked. Listened to it while working out at the gym and it did what I wanted it to do. The story reminded me or a true event that happened not so long ago, until it got to a certain part. Nice little short story.
currently a freebie on audible. a one hour or so listen. Strangely addictive passable short story.
