4.5 stars!

I think I love John Little! Seriously, I think I do. Plus, I love this cover. Go ahead, check it out. See that little 442 under the black and white picture? Now, I don't know about you, but when I hear 442 I think of this bad-ass Oldsmobile.

After reading this book though, I will probably think of this story whenever I hear 442 in the future.

Charlie is a photographer by trade. He is also a man with severe sleep deprivation problems. He's been to the sleep center where they cannot seem

John Little writes very powerful, short novels that are short in format but will stay in the memory for a very long time. Little writes about longing, loss, fate, sorrow, and what we sometimes must do to attempt to avoid fate and to reclaim what we have lost.

Charlie Parkinson, a talented photographer, has a gift, or perhaps a curse. The gift is that he has precognition---he is aware of horrific events before they occur. This allows him to be present with his camera to capture photos at the very

This is one of the most "mentally chilling" stories that I have read in a while. John Little has a way of writing stories that get under your skin in the most emotional way possible. Horror, yes, but not of the blood-and-guts variety. This story was horrific in that it exploits our deepest fears, and begs the question: what would you do if you had the ability that our main character, Charlie, suddenly finds himself with?

An absolutely stunning novella, that I highly recommend without hesitation!

This a story about Charlie Parkinson. He can see into the future. Charlie can see horrible events before they even happen. Charlie dreams are not accurate. The location in the dream is the right place but some other horrible event happens. Charlie bring his camera along to these location so that he may take black and white pictures of tragic events. If Charlie only knew that he was about to face some horrible tragedies of his own. The road for Charlie Parkinson is one hell of a bumpy ride. This ...more

A fantastic thoughtful, articulate and highly readable short story by an author I have only recently discovered. From the opening paragraph..."Charlie Parkinson woke sometime in the middle of the night. He knew the fancy alarm clock Selina had given him last Christmas would be shouting the time in bright red numerals, but he didn't open his eyes....He didn't have to. He knew it would be 4.42 am"...go on admit it you are hooked! Why is Charlie so fascinated with 4.42...and why is he unable to sle ...more
