"It's every parent's worst nightmare but what if that nightmare came true and what if the reality was worse than you could dream?"

I almost didn't give this book any stars because the author made me want to kick myself for being made so scared. If you have a teen and even if you don't, this is the best book to read if you want to annihilate what's left of your peace of mind. As if it isn't bad enough to only communicate with your child through a dance of thumb tips on keys and choppy spelling,

I was hooked from the first text. Even though I'm fully grown, I still communicate through text with my mother. I know the fear of a mother that doesn't answer- it's not too different from the fear a parent feels when they don't hear from their child when they expect to. I have children, and I know the horror of not knowing where your child is. That was, after all, the gist of the story. The surprise twist- which I won't spoil, fear not- had my heart pounding. Then came the ending- as abrupt as ...more

Txt by M.T. Mathieson is a short story 17 pages spanning a few hours. Carol Walsh is returning home from an evening out, as she is getting off the bus her feeling of unease begins and she begins text messaging her daughter Sophie who is at a friends house. Over the course of those few hours the tensions build to an almost unbearable level.

As a person who has been known to let my imagination run wild occasionaly I tottally got this woman, when your nervous you start jumping at every little sound

Recommends it for: short story fans
There some potential here, but it's to short to be actually scary. It was all just a mom and kid texting back and forth for most the story and only got even a tiny bit creepy until the VERY end. :/ probably would've been better if longer. But a super fast read, so maybe a good pick for fans of psychological thrillers and short stories.

I usually do not read short stories, but the cover and synopsis sounded intriguing
and I needed something short and quick for a change. I found it to be a great break from the usual long and complicated novels I normal find myself reading.
If anyone needs to take a break and read something enjoyable that is quick and good... this is the story for you.

The author did a wonderful job in sucking me in with the first text in this story. It was short, 18 pages, I believe. But WOW, that was plenty to make this a scary read.

And the ending... let me say I got goosebumps in the middle of the day. So glad I wasn't reading late at night! :)

I wish I could have a copy of Txt Xtnded to give this a true review. The story stopped just when it hit a turning point. This is too short to be scary, but it has huge potential to be a creepy story.
