It's Halloween season and I was in the mood for something scary....been really enjoying them! Speaking of which...
ok my review:
4stars for grammar- minor,mostly spelling and a little punctuation(butI'm no pro)
4 stars for storyline/concept- I liked the idea of the story...really cool. I know it is meant to be a short....so I'm keeping this in mind. The flow was great, I could easily read it and understand. I did somehow at the beggining assume it was an earlier time period by the unusual activity of sewing the mouth closed. Was suprised by the mention of video games that it was not. The story may come across better with the ambiance of the dated period with the small town having a lack of easy communication to the outside and limited technology/ ways to destroy these creatures... but overall an enjoyable story:0)
3 stars for character relation/connection- I could relate to the characters and their fears, being a parent myself. But nothing to deep, hence the short story:0)
overall an enjoyable read and thankyou for sharing! Good luck!
Scary!!! You can sew my mouth up!
