Delightfully eerie, with a so-so ending

I'm a sucker for stories where the characters have to cope with finding themselves in a place that ought to be full of people, but is mysteriously deserted. This one was delightfully eerie, but the twist ending was a bit of a let-down. It felt like a mash-up of ending twists from previous Twilight Zone episodes (won't say which because spoilers), and the idea that the moral of the story was "don't drive drunk" is kind of absurd. Not that I'm advocating drunk driving, but in this case, I kinda doubt sobriety would have helped much. Still a really good story overall.

Don't read the publishers summary!

As is often the case with these stories on Audible, the publishers summary gives away too much of the story.

That said, this is a terrific episode. Great story, average acting and a great ending, thankfully not spoiled by the summary.
