B. A. Spicer - Strings

4. Strings by B. A. Spicer (2012)
Length: 18 pages
Genre: Short Story
Started/Finished: 27 January 2015
Where did it come from? From Amazon
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 24 January 2015
Why do I have it? This ebook was a free download from Amazon in January of 2015, although I certainly want to read more short stories. I have also read and enjoyed several books by this author n the past.

Astrophysicist Madeleine Happer is convinced that her nightly dreams are trying to tell her something. She isn't quite sure what is going to happen, but the frequency and vividness of each dream seems to indicate whatever happens - it will be momentous. Yet Maddy is certain - deep within herself - that in some indefinable way, the earth will be intrinsically changed.

Now, teetering on the brink of her own personal scientific discovery - one which could potentially prove monumental in the field of astrophysics - Maddy must make everyone understand that they all need to be prepared for what is coming. But is it possible that, even now, she may be too late? Only the universe can say for certain; yet it appears that the universe has suddenly become...mute.

I must that I really enjoyed reading this particular story. I found that the plot was remarkably well-developed for its length; and I appreciated that even at eighteen pages long, the story was unusual and filled with several unexpected plot twists. I give this book an A!

A! - (90-95%)

May you read well and often
