Editorial Reviews

From the Author

About "Curby". Unlike my other works, I had, from the start, intended for "Curby" to be a short novel that I could offer to my readers as an introduction to my other books at a very affordable cost. The responses, although overwhelmingly positive, expressed a desire for a lengthier and in depth storyline. For those readers I share in their ideas, and so, perhaps someday in the future, "Curby" can return to face his birth mother.

About the Author

Writing came late in life for me. I believe the desire had always been there, however, the everyday challenges of getting through the work week kept me too busy to find enough time for myself and the pursuit of what I really wanted to do.
   By far, the biggest rewards with finishing "Yesterday in the Cavern's Dark" is acknowledgement and sharing my most inner thoughts with you the reader. I relish feed back-- your reviews. If I could, I would join you in some quaint coffee shop nearby so I could explain how close to the heart this novel was for me to write. There you and I would sit as I listen and see in your eyes the scenes as they played out for you. And finally, to thank you for your interest. --Adrian Del Valle/ardelvalle45@yahoo.com

At times the book read kind of juvenile.. Like something I'd have written in middle school.. Story also seemed 'rushed' but I guess it was worth the hour or two to read it. Wouldn't pay any money for it though.

A short story. Never got to know the girlfriend. She wanted a child because she was dying of cancer. All of a sudden 3 years pass, her parents have arranged her funeral, and she's gone. next he gets involved with the neighbor. Characters aren't rounded out. The story was brief and flat.

This was one of the most heartwarming stories I've read in a long time. I read this book in 3 days. It's one of those books I could not put down. After reading about the author, I can understand where the emotion came from. Brought happy tears to my eyes.

I read this book in one sitting. I could not put it down. This story is captivating and warms the heart. It is definitely one of my favorite books and I could enjoy it again and again. You will become immersed in this story as if you were really there. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll love!

Although the plot was interesting, I couldn't get past the lack of editing. There were so many grammatical and punctuation errors and cliche' expressions that I only got about halfway through the book and had to give up reading it. It's a shame because I really found the story touching.

Although the story was short, I enjoyed it very much, I felt very sorry about the mom, the biological mother of the child who in her heart wanted the child just like thousands of young woman who go threw the same situation, but end up doing what the boyfriend says. This story has a good happy ending and for that I am happy that it ended in a good way, I even got emotional for a bit, so many children ripped away from loving carrying people. This was a great read for me. Thank you.
