Review: Just a Story
Just a Story by Teresa Vanmeter
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
OK, I usually just leave my opinion on a book, but with this one I get the feeling the author may be quite young and new to writing? So I thought I would leave a little bit more detail.
This is a short story. I was able to read the whole thing while eating my sandwich, which was good because that's exactly what I was wanting to do.
The story itself wasn't too bad, the idea was good. It had a creepy vibe. The problem was it seemed to sort of jump from here to there and had a sort of rambling tone to it.
The grammar could use a looking at (some mis-use of "your/You're" etc) and one thing that really stood out, adverbs! So many adverbs! So much so that I found myself suddenly oddly attracted towards them. Seriously though, they stood out.
Like I say, the idea was good, but could just use a little work on the writing.
Not a bad attempt.
