I really liked this short story, and my only complaint is that it wasn't longer. The story is one with a message, which is one that is definitely needed in this age. I am really hoping that a sequel or longer version is in the works so I can see what decision Dex makes. :)

The intriguing premise and a whole lot of 5-star reviews made me want to check out this short story. To my regret, it didn't match my expectations.
This short story is a facetious take on the ideas of Heaven and Hell, angels and God. If you feel like having fun reading about Purgatory and Limbo, then this story may be right up your alley. If you are more serious about the above-mentioned things, you might not be a fan of A Place To Go.

UPS:
From the beginning the author managed to make me sympathize with the main character, Dex. I really liked that he kept worrying about his "friends", although they didn't deserve it. I also like the fact that no one knows where Dex belongs. And I enjoyed the ending.

DOWNS:
The main drawback here is lack of imagery. There is too much telling at the beginning. As a result, I couldn't get a picture of where the character was, where he went. The author uses the phrase "reached his/their destination" and I don't get where Dex has come as there are no descriptions of where he is. I also struggled with visualizing "creature-like figures" below in the ravines.

The Devil's wife was such a useless character. First, why -- if Naspinski is the Devil's wife -- did Dex call her "Miss" Naspinski if the Devil told him to call her "Mrs. Naspinski"? Even if I can put up with a pussy cat devil, I can't get his wife. She failed as a character because she hasn't shown how evil she is. They just walked somewhere with Dex, and next moment the voice announces that Dex should go to some other place.

To me, Miss Mason is a much more important character, but we don't get any kind of explanation of who she is. I'd rather find out more about her and about how she ended up in Limbo.

3.5 stars and thanks to the author for a good read.

I really enjoyed reading Dex's story. After a night of bad choices with his friends he is give tours of what is to come should be continue down this road. It gives a very real look at the consequences of our actions. We were left in a bit of "Limbo" but that is a great thing since that means we get more of this story in the future. I will be passing this story on to my daughter who is 12, this is a great story and lesson for her......enjoy!

What an interesting story! I also like the fact that there is a clear message behind it. Your actions have consequences. You always have choices in life. If you walk the line, the outcome will be positive. Way to go, Ireland Taylor aka CL Pardington, on your debut as an author! I am in awe of you and here's wishing you continued success as well as many more stories to come!

A great debut story, and very well written. One that every young adult should read, although any age can appreciate the message the author was trying to get across to the reader, and this was done with ease. This certainly makes you think.
I have given 4 stars because it left me hanging...I want to know what the Big Guy has in store for Tuesday. Hope there's a book 2, I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

A place to Go is a short vision on after life and life as we think about it. It is a very interesting rendering of what seems to be a dream. A good entrance for Ireland and I hope she will expand on this theme.
