Awesome story! Had me instantly, and held me to the end! Telephoneman spins a fantastic story that seems so real it leaves you wistful and wanting more!
Technically well done, an easy and enjoyable read. I hope there is more to come from this author!
Well, I must say that this story was certainly not what I had expected. While it was a good story in itself, if it had been properly coded there would have been less chance to be unprepared for the direction the story veered off in. I am unwilling to give away plot twists in a review, but while on the balance the story is in fact a romance there are scenes of violence as well. Nothing else rises to the level of including codes for, as they occur off-screen even though central to the story.
Those cautions aside, the story itself was mostly a character driven piece, with a reasonable cast of interesting if not always likeable characters. While some of these characters never did progress beyond simple cut-outs, that is merely because they lacked time in the spotlight; the author did a fine job of radically changing characters who were focussed on.
Technically, the story was pretty good. A number of errors slipped though, and of course the incorrect coding, are the reason for the merely average score. As to the appeal, I liked it as a story but was disappointed that I was not prepared for the type of story that it was.
Those looking for stroke, and those looking for lighthearted romance, are again best suited looking elsewhere. Those looking for a heavier, darker story with a side of romance will, however, find this to be most likely what they wanted.
