    The descriptions in this are so clear that I can already see how clean and beautiful this could be shot! Only thing I would question is that he stabs her in her side... it's not the quickest way to kill someone, and I think he would want it quick, so maybe he cuts her throat or maybe we don't even have to see him do it, just stay on her reaction?

    Hi Tiffany, I loved your opening description: "Worthy of a spread in Architectural Digest, this home exudes money". Great description.

    Clearly laid out. Really harrowing. I wondered at first, given the intense nature of this whether less time could be spent with the beautiful physical objects and more with the people but perhaps given the end that reflection on all they had together was perhaps the space it needed to be so torturous.

    That was clear, and neatly done. The pacing in the beginning was good, I imagined it in slow motion. It allowed enough room to wonder where it was heading.

    Your descriptions are so vivid, love how with few words you convey not only an image but a feeling. Absolutely loved the dark twist as it starts like a romantic drama but ends up very "The Mist" Stephen King!! One thing is maybe I would find a way to kill the family that's a bit less painful if I was the dad? Like poison or gas, something to kill them in thier sleep if that makes sense? Hope it helps!

    I thought it was a great concept and it was very dark. I’m not sure I bought stabbing family to death was the quickest and best way out, it seemed quite brutal and horrifying.
    I’d want to know what was in store for humanity before he took that option.

    A very easy read but I felt like I needed to know the family better or understand the father's motivation as it made me wonder whether he was a psycho.
