I happened upon this script by pure accident, and since I'm considering a story about a soldier dealing with PTSD, I was very interested to read it. The synopsis is engaging, so I started to read. First, let me say that I read it cover to cover in 2 sittings. It was engaging and had great story elements. The dialogue was good, and could stand a tiny bit of tightening. I am of the belief that dialogue should sound as if it's the most interesting way to say anything. The characters were good, but the duality of Eileen's role (her conflict being internal) could have been stronger. I think there's an underlying structural weakness in that the audience has no real hint at the grim reality of her true weakness. We assume for too long that it's just standard POW problems. If there was some stronger hint that there was something more to her story earlier, you would have me wondering and more engaged. As it is, I felt a lull about 50 pages (don't recall exact page count). The twist is good and it makes for a truly bittersweet resolution. I'm a pretty macho guy and I was nearly crying at the end. I have more to say, but am running out of room....that's a good sign.

A review of Night Owlsby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 04/23/2013The best thing about this story is the intrigue that it has. It's just two men meeting on a path in the night and having a bit of a chat, yet I had to know what the resolution of the story would be. It was simple, but the concept seemed quite unique to me. The characters were interesting and the dialogue was alright - realistic but not brilliant. Although the concluding few... read
A review of Idyll Isles - Harbingerby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 03/26/2013I found you script to be fantastic. I couldn't believe how flowing and satisfying your action scenes were. I fail at them all the time so to see yours was wonderful. All of your characters are great. But I did have some reservations with the protagonist and others. I felt that in the first 10 pages, I wasn't connecting with the character. Maybe rework the scenes so I feel... read
