A fun little blend of Hitchcock and Twilight Zone with this short story. A man gets on a train, thinking he's bound for home, only to find himself trapped with five others aboard what at first seems like a runaway train. And then things get weird in a hurry.
There just enough suspense and characterization to keep things interesting the whole way through, and what I considered a very satisfying ending. A nice introduction to Hanover's work. Should be interesting to see where he goes from here.
The writing was good. The descriptions of the scene and the dialogue was excellent. In a short period of time the author was able to develop several characters enough to make their actions and reactions seem natural.
There was a scene when one of the characters did something and they got a very unexpected result. The characters reaction to this was excellent.
He was able to really convey the emotional state of the characters
