About Molly Blue

Molly Blue is what happens when you feed a girl a steady diet of 1970s DAW paperbacks, send her to a high-toned Southern women's college, and then turn her loose on the Internet. She has strange tastes in both men and women, and her sense of humor is a cross we all have to bear.


Review by: Jason Halstead on July 11, 2011 : (no rating)
I read this in a single, quick sitting, and I have to admit I did a fair amount of skimming once I got about 2/3 of the way through it. There's a lot of brilliance and humor to be found within the story, but I feel it is dire need of a serious edit to bring it out.

The story did not flow well for me. Chief among the flow-halting faults was point of view switches between the main character and her captor. Or possibly they weren't POV switches but something else - I tried figuring it out with re-reading parts but came away as confused as the first time.

I think Molly Blue has a lot of potential as a writer, and I wouldn't turn my nose down at reading something else she's written because of that. This particular story let me down though - even with the R.A. Heinlein references.

2 out of 5 stars.
