I hadn't realised that this was a short - very short - story. The plot is very original and very gripping. It is such a disappointment when it pulls up short all of a sudden - and that is really what it does because that is what the story does. It has no end or conclusion and simply leaves you very curious and frustrated. Very clever stuff of course, because if the author decided to continue the story, I would definitely be prepared to shell out more money to read the rest of it. However, ending the book in the way that he has, the author has really taken the easy way out.
Does he know the end of the story and this is really a marketing strategy? Or is this really the end?
