Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

I rather liked the excerpt - the point of view is compelling and the narrative flows in such a manner as to keep you guessing exactly what the deal is with the narrator. Tense and point of view are maintained consistently throughout the excerpt, which is easier said than done and I appreciate that. Some authors (such as Thomas Harris) tend to switch tenses and points of view all the time, sometimes within a single paragraph, and that drives me nuts. I would enjoy seeing more of this story.

Amazon.com Review

I was intrigued and wanted to keep reading based on the fact that I didn't really know who the narrator was. I kept looking for clues to learn more about this 'son'. There is also a different tone to this story that I really liked.

This excerpt is among my top picks of what I have read so far in ABNA's competition. Given the name, I assumed the POV was the family dog, but loved the way the author opened up more details through the piece. A very thoughtful piece and will appeal to those who like creative POV work.

3.0 out of 5 stars I can't find the story May 26, 2011

So sorry, I guess this is literary, but I like a good story and I am having trouble finding it in this excerpt. Maybe more later. I do have to give the piece credit for some wonderful humor. I laughed out loud with the "...favorite show is the one where the cranky old mand and the nervous redhead demonstrate how to be cheerful." Five stars on humor.
