Rated 4.63/5 based on 19 reviews
I’m dying, well that’s what I’ve been told. How has my life come to this: death, betrayal, friendship, love? Yes, love. I know it’s there somewhere, but I’m struggling to make sense of things. How can I, Oliver Beaton-Court, be here in this cabin, looking at my dead wife and holding an axe… Maybe Tom can give me the answers I need, or maybe there are no answers…

About David Sartof

I was born in a small caravan in a field in the north of Scotland. After such an inauspicious yet somehow romantic introduction to life, I have gone on to do many things. I have served in the merchant marine, been a professional engineer, a military officer and an entrepreneur. I also have a PhD in management philosophy and can research the backside off most things! I now live, in North Yorkshire, England, with my wife and young son. Throughout my eclectic career, I have always written, believing fervently in the power of the written word, and I have previously published a non-fiction work with Palgrave Macmillan. I now bring together a set of rich experiences, a creative research-based outlook to plot construction, and a dash of essential seasoning, to bring you fiction such as River of Judgement, Gloria and now, Sarah! The latter two short stories being inspired by the writings of Anton Chekhov.

Too much description not enough story.
May have been visualised very well in the authors mind but didn't come off to the reader.

The best short story I've read in a long time. Was also quite impressed with good grammar and language, something sorely lacking in many authors today.

Good character development and plot.

Early on I was fairly certain I understood Tom and his role in the story, and I wasn't disappointed. But I was still surprised at the ending and loved it!

Review by: Larry Berkman on April 26, 2012 :
This was a great short story, with clever verse and tons of suspense. I loved the character of Oliver and the dilemma he found himself in. My only comment/constructive critique is that I feel the author spent so much time setting up the twist that, when it finally came, it was somewhat of a let-down. I guess I just expected a bigger bang. And I'm still not sure I quite understand the character of Tom. Regardless, this was a well-written story, worthy of reading, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

I think we all have times when we wonder where are we and what are we doing ..... well I do anyway. Really connected with poor Oliver. A great read with a brilliant twist!!
