Smashwords book reviews by Avril Field-Taylor

  • But, Baby, It's Cold Outside on Dec. 10, 2011

    I always find with SA's work that you can never take it on face value. Here we have, superficially at least, a story about sexual equality. But is it as simple as that? Difficult to tell because the humour tends to distract the reader, in the nicest possible way. I loved the description of her slipping over on the ice. And the dotty neighbour was beautifully drawn with the least possible strokes but still comes over as a fully fledged character. So what is the theme of this story? Compromise? Lust? Or a revelation that the sexes can never be equal, but omitting to say which comes out on top - pun intended.
