There were so many things I enjoyed about the story Culloo. I was struck immediately by the authentic voice of the main character, a teenage girl on the cusp of adulthood. The story flowed beautifully with just enough description to give me a wonderful sense of the characters surroundings without getting bogged down with too much flowery language. The plot was fast paced and although it was clear that the story was intended for children, the character development and level of suspense made the story enjoyable for me as an adult. I especially loved how the author infused the native american culture and a respect for nature into this coming of age gem. Looking forward to sharing Culloo with the children in my life and to reading more stories by this author.

There’s something about British humor that always tickles me so I was hoping NGLAND XPX would not disappoint. Not only was I not disappointed, I was in fact delighted with the ten short stories within. Each story, in its own way, spoke volumes about the author’s view of our current status as a society. With his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, he delivers page after page of honest (I dare say to a fault) insights about the state of our “civilization.” However, Hutson’s truth is not told spitefully. Not at all. Because married within the lines of satire are glimpses of hope and possibility, often in the form of an animal or mechanical device. This humanity, which we humans are often lacking, can still be found in our world (and the future) if we look hard enough. This is not a book that you will be able to read while multitasking. Hutson’s writing style requires your full and undivided attention, but I promise your attention will be rewarded. Highly recommend to those looking to give their brains (as well as their hearts and their funny bones) a workout. And, as for the title, I do believe, Mr. Hutson, that you have done your duty.
