3.0 out of 5 stars Well written May 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The author did a good job of showing the reader through words the fear of the main characters. Not to my taste but not a bad book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible writing October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise of the story is interesting, but the writing is terrible. For starters, it is written in the present tense, which is distracting. Also, the author overuses adverbs and adjectives. Finally, there are a lot of grammatical errors that should have been fixed during proofreading. Thankfully, it was a short story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would be a great date movie July 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
With Enter Sandman, Michael Edward gets you right into the action, delivering a hard-hitting, if not sometimes brutal tale about a group teenagers who dare test a superstition by signing their names to a wall out in the middle of the woods. All you-know-what breaks loose when they do, unleashing a powerful creature who immediately begins to hunt them like cattle. Once the screaming starts it doesn't stop, and Enter Sandman quickly becomes a teenaged horror movie lover's dream. If there was a book that could be described as a great "date movie", then Enter Sandman is it. Thankfully, judging by the rather unique approach put forth in the book's final pages, there is more to come. I'm definitely curious to see they have planned!

3.0 out of 5 stars A very good start May 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be exciting and scary - sort of like a Twilight Zone episode. The characters were teens and the dialogue was fairly accurate. There was some gratuitous bad language and choppy dialogue between the kids and the adults and this is what made the book seem a little amature. It felt like it was written by a teenager because the interactions between the adults and teens were all over the place - the parents seemed bi-polar; they would be consoling and comforting their child in one breath then screaming at them in the next, then preaching at them in the was weird. There were several grammatical errors which again, marked the book as more amature.

Now for the good stuff: The book has a really great premise and storyline. It sounds like one of those stories that kids tell each other to scare themselves. If you grew up in the U.S., you'll most likely understand what I mean. Where I grew up, it was crybaby bridge (apparently an infant was killed in a car accident at some point in time and if you came to the bridge at night, you could hear it crying). It's fast moving with a lot of fight scenes, but nothing gory or horribly violent. I think the target audience for this is middle school to early high school aged kids.

If I were a teacher and an 8th grade student handed this in for a creative writing assignment, I'd give them an A+. If they were a 12th grader, a B-. It's a short book with a lot of potential - a good editor and you might have a hit!

2.0 out of 5 stars Short story June 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Enter Sandman" is a short story that is part one in a series titled The Wall. Bored one night five friends decide to visit the "wall" and sign their names knowing there is a hunting story behind the signing. The legend of the signing is that if you sign your name to the wall then the Sandman will come after you and demand you give him a loved one or he will take you and the loved one.
The story is pretty basic and really does not have any surprises to it. I wish I could say that there is something unique or great about this book but I can't.

More About the Author

I am Michael Edward, a husband, a father of six, a friend, and a self-proclaimed storyteller. I say storyteller because to use the word writer would be a misrepresentation, it might imply that I can write. I have always felt that my imagination was my strength and I always see everything as a movie. A lot of times when I write, its like I am sitting in a movie theater watching it on screen and I just write down what I see with the words that I know.

I love to write screenplays and that bleeds into my writing style. Also, I have epilepsy, and my seizures have increased, so if they bleed into the writing I apologize. I just want to tell entertaining stories that give people a chance to escape reality for a bit. I mean no disrespect to writers.

I am currently working on The Beginning On The End: Book Five and Book Six, Enter Sandman 3, Fearlings Four and will make them available as soon as they are completed.

I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read the sample chapters, to buy the stories, or to leave reviews. Like I said, being a husband and a father of six, I understand how valuable time is, and again, thank you.
