Gerald Rice's story is well structured. Rice focuses on creating vivid characters and realistic dialogue. A few oddly constructed sentences make the reader pause and it somewhat disrupts the flow of the story.
Overall, however, The Beggar's bowl is an interesting story with a twist at the end.
The infatuation the protagonist had with the "villain' is laid out in a way that makes you wonder if the "villain" is everything he makes himself to be. Is he, or isn't he?
I have often said that I have a love-hate relationship with short stories because a good short story has to balance carefully between resolving the plot and leaving the reader satisfied but wanting more.
This short story did all that. Some of the dialogue was a bit off, but the twist at the end more than made up for any moments where I had to pause and read again.
I look forward to reading more from this author.
Rice really knows how to craft characters and their dialogue. He strikes a perfect balance of adding enough details and action that makes this a great read.

... and what is a lie ... and does it matter? In the end ... probably not. I enjoy Rice's style. You'll get a range of emotions from this short and find it relatable and engaging.Published 2 months ago by Tamara Turner
A okay short story. I guess what goes around comes around. That lady was crazy she got her revenge. DeGere must have did a good job making love to her because she wanted him dead. Read morePublished on May 30, 2013 by chase
