I do not know how to grade this story. It is not the kind of story I am usually attracted to: it is not an exciting story, it is not a sexy story, it has no sports, it is not a coming of age story, there are no spaceships, or time travel, or mind reading, or kinky sex. It is not heart stopping, or sentimental.
It is a nice story, easy on the brain and really, really hard to stop reading and then it ends and I feel filled. It is about seven years old and the reason I chooses to review it is for other people to b e reminded that it is here; no sense in having a perfectly good story sitting on a hard drive twiddling it's electrons and not having anyone read it. So go read it. All tens just because there is no place to give a number for a really nice story with fine editing and proofing.
We've all heard of pulp books that are 'unputdownable', well, as far as I'm concerned Coaster2's books are 'unswitchoffable'!
The problem is, that if, like me, one is moved to write a review or two, once you've written one or two for Coaster's stories, you run out of superlatives. Coaster is a master craftsman, and proves it with every keystroke.
If this is the first of Coaster's tales you've looked at, I guarantee you will enjoy it, and I respectfully suggest you go to Coaster's page and read the rest. If you've read other stories by him, rest assured this one is to his usual high standard.
