    What a great, creepy little story, very atmospheric and loved the ending! A shame the author has only written one other book but I will search out a copy.

    Really enjoyed this one. Was playing out different scenarios and explanations in my head the entire time. Some of the shorter sections could've benefitted from fleshing out but overall the short story is pretty solid. Mr. Gubin's refreshingly forceful prose grabs ahold of you and compels you to keep reading, as if discovering the truth is now your only mission. I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys some mystery and mind games.

    This is an amazing short story. When I first started reading it, I imagined Harold (the main character) being a recluse writer like Hemingway, but the similarities soon vanished. Harold has a lot of demons. Something was off about him but I couldn't put my finger on it until the surprising truth was revealed at the end. Well done. Very highly recommended.

    Creepy and well writtenAs you're reading this story, it becomes evident that there's more going on that we, the reader, don't know yet. It's too bad that it's not exactly a surprise when you realize what it is. It also would have been nice to find out what he had gotten in trouble at school over and what happened to him exactly when he ran away. Although I think it's probably fairly obvious what had happened to him.

    Started out as your basic guy in the creepy woods story but soon morphed into a tale with a thread of tension running through it.There was obviously a lot more going on with Harold other than writing a novel in an isolated area ..... he had big secrets. The story could have been fleshed out a bit more, especially Harold's childhood, & the ending had holes in it & seemed a bit rushed.Nevertheless, a good short story to fill in a couple of hours.

    I enjoyed reading this short spooky story. I liked the author's descriptions of the main character, his cabin and the location in which this story takes place. I even felt a little scared at certain points, however I was not sure about the ending. I was kind of confused and I did not understand it completely even after I have re-read it a number of times.

    A short story. Well written and a tad creepy, the end kind of let it down tho.

    Very short but sweet; unfortunately like my descriptor it is a bit cliche if only for the premise of 'a novelist thinks he's going crazy in his cabin.'

    This was one of 3 that I read aloud while we were on a car trip this weekend. It was fun for all of us, and an enjoyable way to pass time while on the road.
