I also feel as if books are portals to different worlds. Especially if the author is a good author and you yourself are a good reader.

Very different from the others I've read for this contest, but I like it!

Great idea, just break up your paragraphs a little and you should be good!

I really liked this idea. I haven't read anything else like that. Just make sure to show the reader what is going on with details instead of just telling them. Good job and good luck!

"This man was introverted;" I might stress that and put "very introverted".

"He has been stuck in this in between state" Change to "inbetween"

"An idea popped into his head, 'What if I could find a book to set me free of this curse." You actually typo'd and didn't put a closing quotation mark at the end of the thought, but I thought it'd be better if you changed tenses, took out the quotation mark altogether, and replaced 'I' for 'he' and 'me' for 'him'. I also think the word "popped" kind of ruins the feel of the story and perhaps "came" would be a better choice.

Other than those few things I thought it was a good story concept and had a good atmosphere.

Huh...I really like this concept. One suggestion I have is to correct some of the punctuation: to leave his knowledge of life forever, was it even possible? Otherwise, the story was very original and I like it a lot. (Swap for Lost Then Found)
