Not bad... not bad at all. Made me curious about a lot of things in the story. Has me wondering about Tom, whether one of them is a ghost since it was brought up... many things. Nice work.

This is an interesting story. Tom looks out for Maria only when it is in his best interest, when the chips are down he worries about himself first (sounds like some people I know0. If you have the time, please read my story, 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.

Art imitates life, or does life imitate art?

Bait and switch. I thought I was reading one kind of story, a real examination of character, setting and events and then, suddenly, it turned into a conventional genre story that was not an interesting or beautiful. It was as if you started to develop as a writer and artist and then got scared you would have to make too big a committment to remain true to your voice and where the vision might take you.

It was a nice read. Thank you. I just wished that there was something more for me to hold on to.

DNF. Too much talking and not getting to the story. Kind of a weak story line anyhow. Got about half way through and nothing was happening. Really, it sounds like two people walking on the railroad tracks letting their imagination get the better of them.
