Rated 3 stars, which means I liked it well enough to write a review and hope it gets good 'sales'.

You're in Tokyo, and you don't know why you're there. People crowd in front of you, but behind you, they vanish into shops. Someone is tailing you. Why?

A short mystery with an amusing reveal. Some stories gain more stars towards the end; this is one.

I read the MOBI version and found the paging format at the end of the book, added to the quality of the experience.

The work develops nicely, I can connect with the Mark Nine, I understand what is happening to him, but I don't anticipate the ending. Very well done.

Review by: Robert Zimmermann on July 24, 2013 :
In this short story of only about 2,000 words, the author was able to set up a character, then slam the reader with a great, unexpected reveal to what’s really going on.

It’d be hard to get into much detail about this story without spoiling it for readers, but I liked the way I was able to see the world through the main character’s eyes/mind. It wasn’t only what Mark was experiencing, but also the way his world works. It’s a future setting, so it’s not easy to establish its differences from our present world in such a short story. It was done effectively, in my opinion.

I think there was just enough story, a great twist, and no need for more writing, though normally I’m left wanting at the end of a couple thousand words. Not the case with My Name is Mark Nine.
