    This failed to scare me. I got the feeling of paranoid compulsive-behavior brought on by poisoned air, but the descriptions lacked detail. I never saw the setting. I never saw the beasts. I wanted to get to the end, but it was just the beginning. I'm not sure where this is going. The run-on sentences and randomly capitalized nouns were also a turn-off. You might like it more than I did.
