I liked the story. Yes, there were some errors, but they did not detract from the plot. Bullying is such a big issue. I was on the wrong side of it in 6th grade, and know how demeaning it can be. Unfortunately, most of us don't get a chance to kick-ass back at them. Thank you, Allen.

PS. I also didn't see any numbers. I have no idea what David Keith was talking about. I agree with Kevin Fontain.

I don't agree with David H. Keith. I think the 'H' stands for hateful. I didn't find any numbers when I read it so what's he talking about? I think it was just self promotion which shouldn't be allowed.
All the author has to do is change the 'inserts' to paragraph numbers, no big deal, didn't take away from the story.
I enjoyed it very much and will be reading more from this author as I have just discovered him. :)

Review by: David H. Keith on Dec. 07, 2013 :
Lose the line numbers. They are distracting, unnecessary, and amateur. This is a short fiction story - not a legal paper.

Frankly, I didn't finish this book - I simply got tired of trying to overcome those line numbers. That's too bad, too, because I found the story's premise intriguing, if a wee bit Walter Mittyish - hey, everyone would like to go back and teach the school bully a lesson, right?

There were some technical errors, as well, but they were relatively minor and nothing a competent editor can't root out and correct.

I hope Gerzoff gets rid of those line numbers - they were the fingernails on the blackboard to me.

Still, it's a cool idea, the premise of it. For that reason, I give this three stars.
