Dont Ever Change

Rated 4.70/5 based on 10 reviews
High school: a time of memories, good and bad. Students get together to sign each other’s yearbooks. “Don’t Ever Change” is a common phrase. What would happen if one of those students never did change? How would that student feel about it? Would it make them happy, sad or psychotic? How would you feel if you had never changed from that young teenager in high school? More

About John H. Carroll

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn’t kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.

As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel’s skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad’s fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)

As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn’t beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.

As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for sixteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they’re asleep.

Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.

The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories that can be found at most eBook sites. He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in a previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.

Disturbing on so many levels!! Disturbing, but extremely well written! I can't imagine having to go through something like that, and I don't know if I'd be able to handle it any better than Adam did! One of the best short stories I've read in recent years, maybe ever!

This one had me scared for a bit, something generally hard to do. To be doomed to repeat high school, long after your parents begin to smell and look weird, and to be brought back no matter what you do is a nightmare. And Adam's solution to the cursed state... fascinating (and disturbing). Well done sir.

What an amazing, thrilling story! And what's more, it has two of my favourite names of all time -Adam and Lori. It made me feel extremely scared, and couldn't help feeling how terrible it'd be to BE ADAM. Imagine, never changing.
Anyway, this is such an original idea! :D
Recommended for girls AND boys alike,
Remy

Review by: DreamyK on July 03, 2011 :
I love the idea behind this story that things that are written in yearbooks come true. It was interesting how Adam adapted to the mantra "don't ever change!" and how that played out in the years that followed.

Excellent story. Very creepy. Might keep me up tonight! Flow was smooth and fast paced. This is the kind of story that made Stephen King famous.

This was a very good read but ended too quickly for me. There is an interesting twist to this one!
