Your short story held my attention. However, I do not remember the main character's name. Despite my lack of memory, I must admit that your idea that Science and God are one in the same was quite intriguing. This review is not a debate on whether I agree with you or not. I won't do that to you.
The reading level of your short story is college-level perhaps high school honors English. There were two people babbling in your short story, Dr. Tower and the main character.
The plot type of your short is a quest. Even though, your main character did not travel to a galaxy far, far away; his mental journey was very entertaining. His "I refuse to change my mind about religion" attitude made him believable. I really wanted to dislike him for being so stubborn. But his stubbornness was the fuel that encourage me to continue reading your short story.
The dialogue, I like the dialogue. It was easy to follow, but I'm not an expert on dialogue.
Keep up the good work. I really enjoy the short story.

Your characters had life and meaning. None of them... read
A review of The Endby dreamtowrite on 02/03/2011After I read the first three sentences, I wanted to delete this assignment. However, my feelings about the genre should not hinder me from reading further. Like fleas jumping erratically on a dog after it were sprayed with flea treatment, The End was confusing and hard to follow. I will not blame your grammatically errors for my lack of understanding, my lack of understanding... read
A review of Madonna of the Chairby dreamtowrite on 11/03/2010Interesting story. I guess your motivation for writing your story was to say to the world "Don't put pictures in your child's bedroom without explaining it to them." or "Religion can be scary." Maybe you will tell me your motivation for writing your story. What I gather from your screenplay was that the young boy confuse about why the picture of the Madonna was in his bedroom... read
