Recommends it for: everyone
that is a short story about a man who was unfortunate from the very beginning of his life and he never gave up. I really like the books by Ruth Sims and hope t5o find more
Excellent !
Elisa Rolle
With this story Ruth Sims achieved something almost unheard of; she wrote an entire novel in only 15 pages. The story of Mr. Newby who is seeking vengeance for a life of abuses lasts more or less 40 years, from his childhood spent in an orphanage, to his carefully planned life to achieve only one goal, to teach a lesson to a particular boy, now man, who Mr. Newby identifies with all the men and women who did him wrong.

This story has an ancient feeling, it reminds me the classics, like Dickens o
Ebook Addict Reviews
Wonderful book. Such unique twist and turns, you will not be disappointed in this short story. Ms. Sims is an exceptional author and delivers a story that will have you thinking twice about the person next to you on the street or the next stranger you are having a conversation with, and if these people you run into daily are sane or insane.

Aaargh! I got this as an eBook from my library, and it didn't say anything about it being a short story! I had to download a new reader, and when it showed 25 pages, I thought it was referring to the first CHAPTER. I was enjoying it, then revenge was taken, I was wondering what would happen in the rest of the book, and whoops! There WAS no 'rest of the book!'
Ruth Sims
An abandoned baby grows up to be a bullied boy and finally becomes a brilliantly devious man who gets even with the one who tormented him most. And he uses colored contacts and wet paper towels and kitty litter to do it.
