Confusing Short Story

Any additional comments?

I think in order to really understand what happened in this tale, I'd have to give it another listen (which I'm not inclined to do). This is a short mystery/thriller story about a stalker and his "victim." It has a nice twist ending but we don't really get to enjoy the details of what happened - there is no satisfying conclusion to this one for me. I probably wouldn't recommend this book; a story this short should be understood on the first listen and the narration was only okay. The narrator didn't do a good job of differentiating the voices of the characters.

holds your atttention but a little confusing

Any additional comments?

This is short sweet with no fillers, some parts are left out but it is enough there for you to work it out for the most part. I guess this is one way for a victim to get justices. It is a mixture of the after effects and revisiting things as they happen.

Paul is so sure Terri is his girlfriend that he stalks her at work, home and everywhere in between. There are parts that are a little confusing which I can’t talk about but they work their selves out at the end. There are places you will think what, are you crazy and why are you doing that. Again this will work it’s self out. I had most of this worked out but the ending still took me by surprise.

Mr. Gregory I thought did a good job of narration. The parts where he read out of character he sounded a little robotic. When he gets into the characters he does put lot of emotion into the character. There is a little change in character voices but a lot of them are close to others. I had no trouble but for a few times working out who was talking. There are neither volume changes nor any background noises. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. I have not listen to anything by this narrator and with a little work I think he could be a wonderful one. I do have to say he has a pleasant voice one that did pull me in and had me hook as to who what and why. He made it interesting when things didn’t make sense and I did enjoy it very much.

The plot is good, a little confusing but good. You should be able to work it out but you may want to pay attention or you will be lost. I think a little more information should have been given. I would have liked to have known if the police worked it all out and just what triggered Paul’s ending, we do know what happen to him but I am unsure as to they why. I did enjoy it very much, for a debut story it isn’t bad at all. If it was a little longer with more information as to why his ex left him along with the above questions this could be a wonderful heart stopping read. I enjoyed it, feel it is worth a 3.5 star rounding it up to 4 stars. The title I feel fits the story to a T, when things get bad it is time to get out (not sure how they got bad), I am pretty sure Paul was a nut case from the start. I am unsure what attracted her to him but my heart went out to both his ex and Terri. A good read that for the most part keeps you guessing.

Don't Call Me Victim? I'm Not Sure What This Is...


The book didn't make sense to me...perhaps something was lost in editing. Or maybe it's too deep for me.

A bright point is the discovery of Rick Gregory's narration. His performance was solid and I look forward to future work.

Had my attention the entire time!

The police have arrested Paul on suspicion of kidnapping and harming Terri. However, they can’t find Terri. Interrogating Paul only brings up more questions. He’s convinced that Terri is really his ex-girlfriend Missy, who he is still obsessed with. Who did what to whom? The police may never get the full story.

This was a clever little bit of fiction in which the reader is never quite sure who is telling the truth and who isn’t. Also in regards to Paul, his version of the facts may be a bit skewed. At first, I was totally on Terri’s side, believing Paul to be a bit unhinged. However, later my sympathies shifted a bit. I still thought Paul was a bit unhinged but Terri obviously wasn’t being totally forthcoming.

If you need just a short break from your humdrum life, this is a great short piece of psychological thriller. There’s a few bloody scenes but it’s not a gorefest at all. I decided in the end that while I didn’t want to be best buds with any of the characters, I did find them quite interesting. There’s definitely something more going on than what first meets the eye.

The Narration: Rick Gregory did a really great job playing an unhinged Paul. He portrayed the various emotions quite well and sounded engaged in the story all the way through. His female character voices could use a touch more femininity.

Good but expected more

If you could sum up Don't Call Me Victim in three words, what would they be?

Unpredictable, cloudy, interesting.

What does Rick Gregory bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good narration, but hard to follow at times.

Excellent for a short mystery!

This very short book was really enjoyable with the unexpected twists. Both the author and narrator were new to me. The narrator did not use different voices for the various characters. I was surprised by the ending. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.
