A short story describing a hex put upon 3 passengers on the Titanic by a black man that caused it it sink. Ridiculous!

Terrible!! Really just don't bother! The story is bad, the writing is worse! Waste of time!

This could have been such a great story, but the writing style felt quite immature. It felt very much as though the writer was given a word or time limit as this was to be a free ebook.
I only gave this two stars (which feels very mean!) because it was free and this may have been the writer's first attempt at a short story, and it's good to support new writers :)

I would have given this a higher rating but I did not care for the content of the story. The writing it's self was very good. I did like the ending and feel for action there is a reaction and Ruth, Jack and Bill did recieve theirs. I did think that the flow of the story was well written and the story line fell in line with plenty of details. I know that the time frame is right for that type of action, but I have never heard that line of thought. It flows well and reads fast, it does reach out an ...more
I certainly wish it was possible to give it negative stars. As it is I decided to give it no stars - one would have been way too much. Without a doubt the most obnoxious, racist piece of drivel I've ever read. I only got it because of my interest in Titanic. This book has NO redeeming quality in any way. Just totally disgusting. Avoid this one like the plague!!!

A tale rooted in the factual sinking of the great liner and provides an interesting sub plot to the tragedy.The author is a master short story teller that keeps the reader hooked without deviating from his primary purpose.An interesting muse and engaging without being pretentious in its narrative.

This book is bad. Really bad. It is grammatically incorrect and, utterly ridiculous. It has no real beginning, no body, & a poor ending. I wouldn't even give it one star, but I couldn't give it none.

This was very short, had more sensual content than I am comfortable with, and has a very racial storyline put forth a possible reason for the sinking of the Titanic. Most of the writing itself wasn't bad, but the whole story just left me with a sad, uncomfortable feeling, thus my low rating.

Wow! What the hell did I just read? To be honest, I thought this was pure crap. I am so glad that I did not pay for this as the author took a sad tradegy and ruined it with some pathetic so-called curse.

Please don't waste your time.

A free ebook and i am glad for that. All in all it was a quick easy read and a quick completely different take on what could have happened.
However like a previous review I also found it a racist piece of text so if you are disturbed with that then please avoid it.

This was a 16 page short story about why the titanic sank. This was terrible. There were loads of spelling and grammar issues. The writing was something of a young child. I don't even know what this is that I read. I'm glad that it was free. No one should be spending money on this.

Apparently Vincent McKalin doesn't know the difference between a conspiracy and a curse. This story was so stupid, I can't even believe I read it. I'm so glad it was only a few pages long. He obviously has some racial hangups that I never needed to know about.

Positives: The story is short so it didn't take long to read and the spelling appears correct.

Negatives: The story.

Racist, absurd, and poorly-told.

Is this a joke? Even for a short story this has got to be the worst thing I have ever wasted my time reading.

Huge disappointment. Hoping my next read will be much better. Not based on facts at all.

The writing was terrible, as was the plot. Don't bother.

It's a quick piece of free fiction. Little more can be said. However, it could be expanded and be so much more especially in the wake left by The Help. Author take note

Ooooooo...I read this thinking it was going to give me more about what really happened on the titanic. Instead it was a story about a person getting revenge????
