Bette Davis Eyes



Bette Davis Eyes was a lovely song I had heard, hence, the title did pique my interest. The story is short and makes for a very quick read.

Mothers always say, never trust strangers. Same is the backdrop for the plot of the story. For the answers to who, what, where, why, when and how, you need to get your own copy! Trust me, the story is worth a read.

Mickie plays with words to create an aura of horror throughout the story. And yes, hats off to her for penning a short short story. Believe me, writing short stories is not always easy. However, if only there had been a bit more elaborations at some places, the impact would have been much better. Mickie is an artist, and this is evident from her descriptions of characters and places.

The characters have a significant role to play. Yet, it is Nelly and her antagonist who steal the show. I found the transition from one scene to another at a few places to be too fast and a little disjointed. But since I believe that every author has a story to tell and that spirit is to be respected, I probably might have missed out some subtle hints as the story progressed.

To sum up, the story is fast paced and can be read in a single sitting.

P.S - If you love horror stories, this story is short in length and can be finished in a single sitting.
