Unfortunately I thought it was a bit of a let down, it began really strong and I was interested in everything that was going on. I just felt it took a wrong turn, the 'woman' we don't know and have no idea what her intentions are or why. The ending was a massive disappointment, it was if you were just 'cut off' as the book suggests.
I know this is only a short story, however I have read many short stories, which have had the characters develop well and the plot has been good. Unfortunately it was almost like Billingham thought, oh I need to end this now and just stopped writing to wrap things up.
This was the first time I have read a book by this author and unfortunately I would not pick up another on the strength of this.
It was O.K and passed an hour or so but not brilliant.
The plot concept of this novella works for a short and punchy style, but the delivery is simply awful. Wooden, shallow characters that are neither believable, nor likeable. I thought the inclusion of a gay couple as protagonists was a good one, and yet they came off as stereotypical fairies, which entirely took me out of the action.
And finally, the ending felt rushed. All the build up leads to a climax that fizzles out like a match in a puddle. It builds up to be like Stephen King’s “Misery”, but then just stops before anything actually happens.
Utter let down.
