"Sam, Roscoe, and Her" was a fantastic concept and story. It was well-written and had great character development. The best thing about it was that when I finished, I didn't realize how much I had read so quickly and the ending made me want more! Now that's the sign of a good writer/story-teller.
The story started off with an interesting (and unique) background into Sam's personality/upbringing, and continued with a great sense of character development throughout. The author made me really love this character and want to follow him through his day, as humdrum as it might appear to an outsider.
The descriptions throughout were well-planned and very captivating, beginning with Sam making coffee in the morning. We learned an immense amount about Sam just in his brewing of coffee one morning.
Lastly, I loved the tenseness throughout the story. There was always a sense of foreboding that kept pulling me quickly through it.
A fantastic piece of work! I'd love to see a much longer work of fiction incorporating the characters and this story!

I'm not sure what to make of the story except that it did leave me wanting more. I see this being a small part of a much larger story/novel. I'd love to see more of the marriage that's become merely comfortable... read
A review of Hot Pink (Revised)by eaklee on 09/11/2007"Hot Pink" is the story of a druggee and a prostitute. I liked the overall concept, but I think the story needs some work. I liked that the author uses conversational, fragmented sentences, as if the narrator is walking down the street with you, telling you this story. The descriptions are very good, too -- very visual. My suggestions would be: 1) This should be the... read
A review of The Ringby eaklee on 08/31/2007I loved this story. The descriptions were fantastic. I felt like I was actually in the room as an observer, along with the main character. Having very little dialogue truly worked for "The Ring." And what dialogue there was didn't detract from the story; it helped it along. My only recommendations would be to clean up the grammar and change the title since it "rings"... read
