Death Ride Review

I had no idea what to think as I started this one. My mind was reeling with possibilities of what was going on.


Rating: 5/5

You wake up lying on the floor of a moving train. Your biggest problem is not finding out where you're going, but not remembering ever getting on board.


No one can answer your questions, no one can help you. You have to decide what you are going to do before the train reaches its destination.


Every fibre in your body urges you to get off this train.


But what if it's worse outside?


When you are on your own, you have no choice but to reach deep inside your soul and trust your instincts.


And hope they won't let you down.

This was my last short story from my little short story marathon. I also got this short story free a while back. I had forgotten what this one was about by the time I got around to it but luckily Goodreads did have a synopsis to refresh my memory.


We follow an unnamed character who wakes up and find themselves on board a train. They have no memory of how they got there and no one is able or willing to tell them where it’s going.


This was such an interesting and unique story. I had no idea what to think as I started this one. My mind was reeling with possibilities of what was going on. And with the story set in first person, it was easy for me to feel like I was right there with them experiencing it. I was completely entranced by this story. It flowed so well, I didn’t want to stop until I finished reading.


I will admit as I neared the ending, I was finally able to figure out what was going on. And even though I was proven right by the time we got to the ending, I was glad to see I was right. It wasn’t too obvious, it had crossed my mind at the beginning but I didn’t have enough details to be certain. In a way, it felt like a puzzle trying to guess what was going on.


I truly enjoyed reading this one! I’m glad to have ended my marathon on a high note!


I highly recommend this one to anyone who enjoys short story horror suspense reads!
