This is one of the longer short stories by Rod Harder. The extra length of the story helped Rod to create characters but they are still a little thin. The character of Alex is horrible and if I met someone who spoke or acted this I would run. The story is not realistic at all.
On top of that the story is badly written with awful punctuation and disconnected sentences. I felt like I was reading a list of bullet points instead of a story. Not only are the sentences disconnected but the parts of the story do not flow. One second Rod’s writing about one thing and the next he’s writing about something entirely different. I would not recommend this book.
