There is an interesting story buried in here.
The story begins with sections of narration and dialog created to provide the reader with a lot of back-story information. The story takes on life once the terrorists douse David in water. From this point onward I found the images clear and the dialog more natural and convincing. A lot of the back-story information isn’t necessary for the reader to understand the story. The information that is important can be included during David’s conversations with the terrorists.
With some polishing this could be a nice story. Thanks for the opportunity to read it.

Making a stronger connection between the character’s memories and the robbery would give the story the added cohesion it needs. The part I liked... read
A review of Just a Manby Justwriting on 03/31/2011I think there are two stories here. Either idea by itself has the making of an interesting romantic story, however, together I think they end up confusing the reader. The first possible story is about the woman’s attraction to the warrior, and the second of the warrior running away from the battle and instead finding a renewed reason to go back. I personally would have preferred... read
