Smashwords book reviews by L. David Hesler

  • Clip on May 10, 2011

    "Clip" is an experience that will haunt your memories in all the right ways. It throws the reader into a labyrinth of modern paranoia and anxiety; the story is fueled by a perfect amount of speculation. The main character's situation is, at its core, a very real possibility, which immediately puts the reader on edge; in an age of identity theft and digital crimes, the conflict in "Clip" rings so true. Yet Kenneth Wayne takes the story in even more fascinating directions which involve conspiracy theories seemingly pulled from the message boards of internet subculture. Again, as surreal as "Clip" becomes, it still feels grounded in elements of life that are too real to discount. Wayne's writing is up front and in your face; it is somehow both guttural and playful, but never misses an opportunity to surprise.
