The rhythm of this short tale is that of a poem. The beats are hit and repeated, making the flow familiar and common place. So when on his birthday Reginald snatches a body the reader's mind hits the beat no problem, but then says "Wait, what?" with a bit of a stop and a pause. It is a clever little tale that is a quick fun read for a bit of a wet afternoon and a spot of tea.

The poetic stream of words keeps the story connected as the plot oscilates between past and present. Definitely a great read! The concept is portrayed in an intriguing manner, and the story captures your attention right from the title.
Well done J.M. Frey :)
