Enjoyed immensely but last 3 minutes is missing !
Yes. The reader adds greatly to the enjoyment of the story; a very gifted voice actor.
It's a short story, set over three or four scenes so none really memorable than others.
As my comment above, but enjoyed all of it from beginning to end. The reader sets the scene and creates atmosphere.
Too short to be a film, methinks, but probably something along the lines of Be careful what you wish for.
Sadly, the last three minutes was missing, but hopefully I didn't miss too much at the end as the main point of the story had been made.
