Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon Freebie)
When David Patzpowski takes his breakfast at a motorway diner, he discovers the clientele to be a little on the strange side.
A random freebie from Amazon! Just what I was looking for. Something short and something a touch spooky.
The story follows the man who gets everything he wishes for. I can’t say much else…but he is visited by someone who has a message to send him.
I felt bad for him in a way because I do not really believe he truly understood he had a gift. I don’t want to believe he is a baddie….but still…maybe he did know? He had to have an inkling, but then a certain event happened and I don’t think he really knew that it was a gift.
But yes, this was a short one. I would’ve liked a little more backstory and more about the power. Was it a power? Was it karma? Was it luck? I wanted more detail.
Overall, though, this was a pretty good read. Didn’t scare me too much, but it does make you think. I’ll give this 4 stars.
