The Disorient Express

A fun little blend of Hitchcock and Twilight Zone with this short story. A man gets on a train, thinking he's bound for home, only to find himself trapped with five others aboard what at first seems like a runaway train. And then things get weird in a hurry.

There just enough suspense and characterization to keep things interesting the whole way through, and what I considered a very satisfying ending. A nice introduction to Hanover's work. Should be interesting to see where he goes from here.

A great, quick story

It's already been pointed out that The Last Stop feels like an old Twilight Zone story, but I will repeat that here because it's true. While I am going to avoid giving away specific details, the story does what The Twilight Zone always did so well, which is taking a group of strangers, putting them in a truly bizarre situation, and letting those characters' interactions propel the story toward it's resolution. The author never tries to push the story beyond its purpose, as many writers would be tempted to do. The result is a situation that feels more realistic and unnerving, despite being such a strange event. The resolution feels natural and manages to hold onto the intrigue of the story that led us to that point.
Full disclosure, I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review. I don't often take people up on these offers, because my honest reviews haven't always been positive, and that's not fun for anyone. In the case of The Last Stop, I'm very happy that I gave it a listen. The story did not disappoint at all.

In terms of reading, I think that Anthony Bianco did a great job of infusing each character with personality of their own, without going overboard. He made it easy to follow conversations, and never made the story feel anything less than genuine.
