hmmmm...

interesting premise. I would have liked to have a little more explanation or detail as the story was winding down. also, if she believes she's a sociopath then she would have no guilt.

Get to the point

This took too long to get around to it. 1/2 of it is describing a box in the woods. Geez.

Nice performance, story original but left wanting

The story was definitely an original interesting tale of a psychopath and I was riveted for most of it but the ending was a bit flat. I liked it and I recommend it but it’s not my kind of short story. I thought the end was about to explode, instead it left me wanting something more clever. Narration very good.

Disappointed

A short start and I was glad when it was over. Creepy and very weird.

Wordy and Dull

I didn’t care for this one. Wordy and somewhat dull. A woman who is a sociopath runs in the woods and finds a booth and is driven to confess. Can’t get back the time wasted on this.

A woman wanting her husband dead....

I have chosen 2 Audible originals in a row of a woman wanting her husband dead. Don't read...this is a spoiler alert. If you are interested in a short dark story go ahead and listen in. She confesses her guilt to this booth and feels better. I looked at it as the booth was supposed to have a religious content of a confession booth yet she was confessing this to Satan...and when she did she felt better. The end left you wondering...did her husband survive????
