The BEST I can say about gary goodman and his review is WHERE’S YOUR BOOK? But, yeah that is a question isn’t it? THAT SAID I suggest that Mr. goodman write his own book. Oh yeah, he’s still reading Leaves of Grass and Death of Virgil; PRACTICING, to make sure HIS FIRST BOOK is PERFECT. Can’t wait to read it, yawn. Now, on to the review. I’m a read-a-holic and if the book can hold me through the first chapter, I know I’m going to like it. I enjoyed reading Edwin C. Gwinn. He’s quirky, determined and hopeful. He extends himself to everyone he comes in contact with, that’s part of his charm for me. Like his Uncle Pauly, he also needs to move forward into the future and make strides toward a love life. Is it Maria? Should it be Maria? I can’t wait to find out! Better to my taste than Legend of the Stone, Mr. Long has come a long way with The Methodical Ways of Edwin C. Gwinn. “Doesn’t flow? “Jerks about?” That’s real LIFE people! No one’s life “flows” easily and we all “jerk about” trying to do our best and make it to the next level and that’s exactly what ECG shows you. I’d take real-life reading over “rolling prose” any day knowing even though it’s fiction, it’s real.

The absolute BEST I can say about the style is that it is "awkward." The whole thing smacks of being the result of trying much too hard -- the story does not FLOW -- it sort of jerks about. THAT SAID, I suggest that Mr. Long invest in four things: an advanced POETRY course, and advanced ENGLISH course, and the two books 1. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, and 2. The Death of Virgil by Herman Broch. These two writers are MY favorite examples of "rolling prose" -- Mr. Long could do no better than to immitate these two masters. A final positive word: KEEP WRITING! This craft takes MUCH practice!
