Good thing it was free...

I didn't know what was going on. the way these people talk and how the POV fluctuated i never knew anything that was going on. it was so short there is no character development or plot. The only details were the subway station and street layouts for NYC

Short story. 9 pages.

I guess this was horror but it wasn't very scary. But that might be because there's weren't enough pages to develop the story. I was going to give it 2 stars but I'll up it to 3 because I think if the author could expand the story it would be much better.

Reviewed by Amber: This story is free. That's about the only good thing I have to say about it. I think the author was trying to write something scary, but it fell flat for me big time. There isn't more to say about this one. The blurb sums it up. If you're bored and have five minutes to spare, you might like this one.

I can't decide if I'm disappointed or depressed. It's like those people weren't even people - they spoke like they were straight out of a sit-com. I could rewrite this and make is ten times better just by adding some character development and focusing on a certain POV. Regardless it was sort of sad in the end ;(

this was a real fast read, like 10 minutes or less. it is a short ghost story, plain and simple...n sex or anthing.

on that note, i did like it. this is a story you could tell at a campfire and make real spooky.

This is a satirical and campy short story which does not take itself too seriously, and is entertaining to read. It is easy to forget just how brief it is as the story itself is well-paced, and not rushed in any way.

This has so much potential but it ended abruptly. It would be nice if Mr. Broddie developed the story.

It was chaotic and the follow-through was a bit of a fail. The idea was brilliant though. Stories don't make me want to cry often (actually almost never) but this one did it.

Okayyyy, it was free on smashmouth and lets say it was an okay story nothing really to write about just a ghost in serch of his living boyfriend.
This story was okay for a free read. Only about 6 pages which is really too short to accomplish much. I didn't particularly care for the writing style and the plot is not very original.
