Review by: Lesley Fletcher on Aug. 13, 2013 :
Karen Robiscoe is a brilliant, fast-paced writer who leaves the reader not only wanting more but wondering at the same time if they are the only ones who 'get it'. Her tongue in cheek references to computer parts are hilarious as are her take on blogging personalities.
You have to be quick on your feet to keep up with the humour, technical references and fantasy regarding how it relates to real life - real time.
" No doubt to mitigate the sting of her analyses, since Cheeky's reviews were full of piss and vinegar.
"Thanks, but—"
"Exactly. 'Love the Daisy Dukes. " *

This short story has the makings of a full feature animated story. The tremendous detailing takes the reader right into the monitor as the title suggests. I can only hope that the author finds an animator or that one finds her so that many more people can experience the exceptional mind of Karen Robiscoe.
Well done! Well written. A pleasure to read.
