1.0 out of 5 stars I'm hanging up now 23 Nov 2011
By S. Richards TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This a ten-minute read that, once I'd finished it, I had to ask, what did I just read? There is nothing to this story- no depth, no charm, no feeling, just really nothing to make me feel as if I'd read something enjoyable or even worth reading. The writing here is very simple and almost painful, with the characters feeling flat and hollow. This story goes beyond mild and into boring and uninteresting. Even if it were free, I can't say that it's worth your time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Telling 20 Nov 2011
By Christine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author needs to work on NOT telling every detail--I would suggest hiring a proofreader and/or asking a few friends to proofread/critique it because, as it sits, it isn't an enjoyable read. I felt nothing and the characters were flat.
I gave this short story 2 stars for 'I don't like it', although the cover is fantastic.

1.0 out of 5 stars English class is important 13 Jan 2012

It's one thing to be a writer and yet another to be an author. I sincerely wish you well in your endeavors but would hope that you might hone your craft before "Publishing" again. You have used more verb tenses in one sentence than I learned all year in French II. Suggestions: map out your plot before writing a single word. Your story must have a direction, a climax, and a resolution. Your English teacher wasn't making that up. And it will help you to tell a story rather than just sweetly reminisce. Underline each of the verbs in your story. If they're not the same tense...reconsider your phrasing. Start there and see where you go. Oh, and by the way, spellcheck is NOT your friend.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish I could choose zero stars... 17 April 2012
By Desperately seeking the next - Published on Amazon.com

I literally only got this to see how truly bad it was. After reading the reviews I was so curious. Wow. On the very first page I was ready to put it down. However, it's so short that I decided to just read the whole thing to see what a joke it is. Took me about an hour but only because I was taking care of my crawling 11 mo son while reading it. First of all everything you'll read in the other reviews is spot on. The tenses change constantly even within the same sentence. It's overly detailed and things that have been mentioned or should have been implied are repeated. Then on top of that there're details that are completely unnecessary to mention. The story has absolutely no flow, no point, no character development, no plot development, no beginning middle or end. The writing is so elementary it makes my 7 year old niece's writing look like "A Tale of Two Cities." Also, there is random cursing throughout. Very random. Here's some points no one mentioned yet. The dialogue is so fake and forced it makes you feel uncomfortable as if you were witnessing these conversations in real life even though you know you're reading a fictional story. Also, it switches points of view in the middle of thoughts. Sometimes it's from Simon's point of view, then it switches to Tania.

I decided about halfway through that the author is either a child or an ESL writer, maybe both. So I clicked on the link that she had listed at the end of this "story." I found jack until I went to her Facebook page. Apparently she speaks French and English. That's the only reasonable explanation I could come up for why this book is just a flaming pile of excrement.

She has a series called "Bitten" which is so typically about vamps. The reviews aren't much better than this. The three or so fans that are eagerly awaiting the third in the series all seem to have given up because of the absurd amount of time it's taken her to complete the third novella.

This book is a testament to the saying "You can't judge a book by it's cover." She should spend less money on the graphics for her cover and more money or some basic writing lessons or an editor.

In conclusion, like me you'll probably enjoy reading the reviews more than the actual story. It's pretty good for a laugh though.

1.0 out of 5 stars 17 pages of nothing. 2 Aug 2012

Boy meets new girl at school. Boy calls girl.... now they're both happy.
The end!

One of the few times I've wished for a zero star option.
