Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon Freebie)

When David Patzpowski takes his breakfast at a motorway diner, he discovers the clientele to be a little on the strange side.

A random freebie from Amazon! Just what I was looking for. Something short and something a touch spooky. 

The story follows the man who gets everything he wishes for. I can’t say much else…but he is visited by someone who has a message to send him. 

I felt bad for him in a way because I do not really believe he truly understood he had a gift. I don’t want to believe he is a baddie….but still…maybe he did know? He had to have an inkling, but then a certain event happened and I don’t think he really knew that it was a gift. 

But yes, this was a short one. I would’ve liked a little more backstory and more about the power. Was it a power? Was it karma? Was it luck? I wanted more detail. 

Overall, though, this was a pretty good read. Didn’t scare me too much, but it does make you think. I’ll give this 4 stars. 


  1. Sounds good, even if it left you wanting a little bit more.

  2. If it didn't scare you too much, I might be able to handle it.

  3. Sounds a bit mysterious with the spooky part. Glad it hit the spot, Carole!

  4. Thanks Carole! :D
    Yay random freebies

  5. Carole: You always pick the creepy books! Glad you enjoyed this freebie!
