Two thumbs up. A nice short story, fairly well written. It might have been nice to know how it all ended up, but that probably would have taken much, much longer in the telling. As it is, it's a ngood diversion for five minutes.
Excellent! The story moves quickly, not getting bogged down in useless rhetoric that would serve only to allow an author to impress himself with how verbose he could be. At the same time, he gives enough info to flesh out his character nicely.
An interesting theme, well imagined and written. Looks like this is one in a series. I'll definitely be looking for more.
What a delightful tale! Wesley Allison, author of "His Robot Girlfriend" and the sequel, "His Robot Wife," has done it again. His characters and style of writing about them in this story reminds me a bit of Mark Twain. He caught and kept my attention from beginning to end and had me chuckling constantly.
Two thumbs up for this one!
More adventures of our friend, Eaglehead Buckthorn, which is to say, our hero. :-) Almost as good as the first one, but not as well edited. Will there be any more in this series? One can hope.
One and a half thumbs up. Allison's writing in the books is good enough to justify sampling his vended wares, and I am doing so.
Not a bad premise but waayy too much medical jargon. This renders much of it uninteligible and sorely taxes the desire to finish reading.
I will check out the author's "Sacred Water" but if it doesn't gain my interest quickly it is likely that I'll dump it and move on.
Jeeze Louise! This story takes what could have been a good idea and proceeds to make it anything but. The complete lack of editing, alone, is enough to ruin it. Perhaps the author could rework it into something worthwhile.
