5.0 out of 5 starsHeart pounding, Claustrophobic
Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2018
A normal day, then the unknown assaults the people, the descriptions are subtle yet bold. The author is sly metering the fear--the cadence of the narrator's voice matching his steps as he runs … as I read I suddenly noticed that my own heart was pounding. And it only gets more tense -- the narrator finds himself frightfully alone, the story becomes even more claustrophobic as the author skillfully draws in all the threads he's hidden, pulls them in around you, tighter and tighter . . .
An absolutely riveting short story of terror and the building insanity that comes with uncertainty. Read one man's account of what could be the end of the world and his struggle to keep his sanity as he recounts the unimaginable horror he just witnessed. A wonderful read by the incomperable Toneye! I am off to find the next collection of his works!

I felt bad for the dude in the glass box the whole time he was looking for safety and in the end he was doomed I actually liked the story of survival which is why I give it a strong 5 stars it left me wanting more.
This was a fun, engaging short. The premise is original and creative and it is a length you can easily enjoyed on a short break. I would have loved to read more details as it rolled toward the end which was a bit rushed, but that is really my only complaint. I picked it up on KU and will be grabbing more from this author for sure. Recommend for fans of apoc type stories.
5.0 out of 5 starsChilling & tense ... Will have your heart & pulse racing like speedway competitors

A real open-ended tense little chiller of a tale. The first person perspective and real-time telling of the story give it an utterly genuine and convincing sense of terror and of running out of time before some horrible and inevitable end. I wasn't sure and still don't know what the original source of the horror from which the character was fleeing or speaking of, but that's part of the beauty here .. the reader shares in the narrator's frustration and fear of 'not knowing, and just like for him, there's no resolution for the reader either. The ending hints at something medical, but again, it's pure speculation. The real strength of this story not only lies in the telling of it and the sense of fear and urgency but in all the question marks it leaves behind ... what was the source of the apocalypse? Did the narrator survive? Was his captivity a death sentence or a means of protecting him? Perhaps the author will answer these questions another time ...
5.0 out of 5 starsA Great Thriller/Horror Couldn't Put It Down! A Must Read!

Mr. Eyenot had me on the edge of my seat and I was at the end of this story before I knew it! I was like ... ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? THAT'S IT???? I WANT MORE! But, it was a short story as it was advertised. That is my only complaint that it was too short! Gripping and exciting it had me captive from page one. It's a must read if you like horror or thrillers.
