I enjoyed it. It was short, theatrical, and fun to read. I'll give it a five just to keep the author writing. Good work. You might want to read my own free book. Well, it's free right now.

Review by: Graham Murray on July 30, 2011 :
Just too far fetched and historically inaccurate to be of any literary value. Guy Fawkes would certainly NOT have had a cigarette lighter.

Research is key when attempting to write about such topics, especially when there are gobs of material available on this particular topic, which is extremely well-documented.

As for the 'style' - not my cup of tea at all and made for tedious reading.

This very short story is well written and well researched for its topic. You feel as if you are there listening to Guy speak his final words. I recommend this as a first read of Michael's work. You can probably read this it just a short time, have some entertainment and get to know a new author in the process. That is a win/win all around. So go ahead and grab this is free!

The Spoken Confession, by Michael Wilson is a very unique piece of literature -flash fiction at its best. The scene enters straight into the action as it should. Yet this tale is told with a unique style - reminds me of a screenplay, but not. Still, The Spoken Confession is well written, with an intriguing mini-plot. Enjoy. I did.

I am giving Michael 5 stars because, as a flash fiction, he deserves it. Although I don't think I'd read this style as a novel length book.

Review by: Garry Charles on Feb. 03, 2011 :
The Spoken confession is written much like a monologue with the narrators actions added as an aside. This is an usual style that surprisingly works very well.

Michael has done well to use this style as a debut piece and I take my hat off to him for a job well done.

I would like to see this style used again, maybe in a fictional piece that runs for a longer word count.
