Wow!!! Ed Chatterton certainly packs a punch in this very intense short story. I read the last sentence, turned the page expecting more and almost cried when I realised it was finished. But I guess that's the nature of short stories and this one was a ripper. It was only 3o pages but I found myself gripped by this thrilling story from the very beginning and holding my breath as it escalated to it's chilling ending.
I can't say much about this short story, as I'll reveal too much, but suffice it to say, the horror of what was happening kept me reading until the end, but the ending shocked me and consequently dropped my rating
A free short story that filled in some of my lunch hour for me. Shorter than expected and finishes abruptly with a particularly unlikeable main character that kept the pages turning to the end.
Again, declaration of bias needed because I wrote the thing! Free short story download available now from Random House.
I grabbed this short story for free at the Google Play Store and was looking forward to checking it out but in the end, didn't really enjoy it.Skennar is a truckie. He's also not a very nice person with a dodgy past. He's a druggie. And cruel. Not to mention a psycho who totally loses it and does a really bad thing over a stupid gesture. I disliked him almost instantly and kept hoping something bad would happen to him.The ending wasn't great either. :/Bottom line: I'm afraid this story didn't wo [...]
A thriller and breathtaking short story taking place in some deserted roads in Queensland, Australia. The present tense form of writing increases the sense of suspension. The description of some severe scenes was so vivid that I preferred to ignore them by closing my eyes to avoid reading those descriptive lines!
I'm glad this was an freebie. It seems like a book that the author ran out of ideas for and as a result it finishes very quickly and with no real ending. There seemed to be the premise of a much better story hiding within, but unfortunately it seems to have gotten lost.
Brilliant. Chilling and beautifully written. Full review here: thereaderinthetower.wordpress
Quite a gruesome and gory story about a cruel man. If you're not into that sort of thing, this is not for you. I got this for free from Google Play.
So realistic I cannot go into the outback ever again!
Great little short story
