I read/listen a LOT, I will try all genre's but I don't necessarily love all genre's. I believe reading expands the mind and imagination.
Strange little story, feels like there should've been much more to it and I found the reading of it distracting, the different accents etc
Very weak and very short story. Not really worth bothering with.
Narrator did a reasonable job but she was working with poor material.
Obsessed with psychological thrillers, crime, mystery and dystopian fictions. A good drama now and again. A harsh critic at times.
I have to admit I was totally gripped throughout but it fizzled away when it just seemed like listening to a short episode of Midsummer Murder - slightly inconclusive and may have been better as an actual novel.
An easy listen and kept me hooked. Listened to it while working out at the gym and it did what I wanted it to do. The story reminded me or a true event that happened not so long ago, until it got to a certain part. Nice little short story.
i feel like the story was just getting started and then it was over?! i feel like only a quarter of a book as written...
"*Death by Bullying*"
Ryan was barely 18 yr. old. He was good looking, popular, and likeable, yet he chose to end his own life. Why? This is the story of the dark undercurrents that run deep in our society, where the domineering seek to control, and destroy others for the feelings of power it weilds. This was a good read, but left me feeling as if the book ended in the middle of a chapter.
"To die for"
Excellent book with understanding of people's nature. Enjoyed listening to this book. Will definitely follow this author
"No story line at all"
Absolutely terrible. There is no plot or conclusion at all. Not sure what the point of this book was supposed to be.
"The story is undeveloped and ending superfluous."
The whole story is uninteresting. The characters undeveloped and motives weak. It ended abruptly and with little impact.
"I didn't find it that interesting"
I actually was looking for a cool story with interesting twists, but actually I couldn't connect anything... I wouldn't recommend it
Short story. Too many F words, however realistic but sad story, timely and current, unfortunately.
"I enjoy the short stories, a great way to relax."
It is a story that peeks a look into shallow minds and actions. Good story.
"A story that does not come to a close."
I struggled to keep listening to this book, but persevered. Then it stopped without ending.
"Story has no ending, hate these"
Hate to read or listen to a book that doesn't end. This one doesn't end at all. Do not recommend.
