Queertown Reviews

(Chapter 25 Review)

Thanks for a really great ride. There's so much to like in this story - lots of grist for a book club discussion if one were so inclined. Personally, I appreciated that the gender fluidity was adroitly handled. While present, it never overtook the story and the characters didn't come off as flighty or scattered. The whole arc of Queertown was the characters' growing understanding of themselves, who they are to others and their place in the world.
You have a wonderfully unique 'voice' to your prose. The rhythm reminded me of a storyteller, as if the narrator is present and telling the story, different from just reading the words a loud. I look forward to reading more from you!

(Chapter 1 Review)

Okay, so I have to second Connor… you’ve piqued my interest, which is always a good start, right? Second, I’ve suddenly the strong urge to cue up Dylan J Third, this reminds me of The Beach, that quest for Shangri-La; that’s not a bad thing, it sets a mood which only further reading will reveal whether it’s a valid flavor for This story.
I like the dialogue and the skill you employ to insert description; it comes of very natural and seems effortless, doesn’t stall the flow.
I look forward to the next chapter.

Ahh, a bit of melancholy in this chapter, but I like the way the story is playing out. I sense the story drawing to a close and I'm going to be sorry when we reach the end.

I´m already out of likes for today but I´ll be back tomorrow to like the hell out of this story ... I already took peeks whenever I saw your story updates but didn´t want to start reading another story. Now I have the time and I love chapter one, I know this is gonna be good.
Cheers, Clara

(Story Review)

Amazing story. I'm not usually a fan of stories where the narrator spends a lot of time relating the past to the reader, but this is very well handled. Love the philosphical aspect of piece. Now I'm forced to wait for the next installment.

Thanks so much for your comment. It means a lot to me to get positive feedback - yep, I'm that needy! :) I've written most of the story now and will post it over the next few weeks. It has been fun to write and I think I have come up with an ending. Though the story has tended to take on a life of its own as I've developed it. Thanks again for reading. :)

(Chapter 5 Review)

If you were shooting for erotic, you nailed it! Posted Image
I enjoy the way you use a series of verbs (nouns and adjectives as well) to describe a particular action or sentiment. Very effective - and, yes, you've been doing this all along, not just this chapter. I find the verbs in particular add to the "rush" of the scene.

Again, well done!! Posted Image

I like the Dylan element that you have woven into the story. I also enjoyed the way you described the love scene - very passionate without detailing what was actually going on - well done! Posted Image
