Review by: Mars B on March 27, 2014 :
Wow. I didn't think I could enjoy or understand a story told entirely from an outside perspective! I have to say, I was at gnawing my lips while looking at how few pages I had left to go because I knew I would want so much more! I really fell in love with Edward. I have met people like him and always been inclined to secretly stalk and watch, so I was incredibly lucky to have read about him first upon opening an account here.
Really, the only tragedy is that it's a short story. The start was set at a nice slow pace, I got a great feel for where and when everything was taking place, but the ending came a bit abruptly. It left me wanting more details, the state of the rugs, smells, sounds. Just more. Loved the ending, but it did leave me wanting more details.
Anyway, I loved all the characters, especially Edward!

Very enjoyable story. The author really takes one into the historical period with references and language. Good use of the narrative with a very surprising ending.

I liked very much how the historical period is set with a few little touches: a seance, a boy growing out of dresses, and the end is very surprising; I think that it was meant to be an exercise in 1800s gothic lit., and it's a good story, if not completely convincing.

I went to line spacing, but it didn’t seem to work. Not I got what you meant about “TAKES”. Good story I especially liked the ending it gives you that now what going to happen feeling? The gossiping of the townspeople kept the story going everything based off their judgment, but I would like to know what was going on in Edgar head just once.
