The first reviewer said it best, this is a thought-provoking story. It has at least a few moments that make you pause and ponder. It works on so many levels and provides perspective.

Thanks for the read, author.

Nice fast-paced read with an interesting plot twist. Thought provoking. Some repetition in wording (scratchy hospital gown).
