This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.
An evening of reading, or a future to consider.
What if it was possible to see into the future? Lilly is hired to work for her brother and his friend. An investigation leads to the discovery of Joe, in an old shed. Joe can not remember what he used to do, but he can tell what will happen in the next few minutes.
Sarah Baethge shows a lot of promise in this short story. The plot is great, and lets the reader use their own imagination to explore the future. I was very much into the story, when the book ended. I was left with a feeling of “that’s all?”, and was not even sure I did not miss a page.
I was left wondering what happened to the characters in this story. It ended very abruptly, almost like ending a chapter of a book. The concept for this story is very intriguing, I would even like to see more books written on this subject.
I would happily grab a sequel of this book. I like the writing style, and found the concepts in the book interesting. I am a bit perturbed by the ending, and would prefer not to read another book that leaves me hanging the way this one did.

This was a very short story. Though I liked it, I still felt that it would have been better if it would have been longer.
The concept was really good but the story needed to be developed more. There are few visible gaps that sort of broke the reading pace. Long sentences and complicated explanations sometimes dragged the narration and made me go back over what was being said.
The end was unexpected and very different, but a bit of clarity on how it came about, would have been wonderful. Overall a good attempt.
