  • Pieces on Jan. 18, 2010

    In one of the best ‘vengeance’ stories I have ever read, Julia Dudek introduces us to the fascinating, yet haunting life of Angelique McCourt; a beautiful, intelligent first year med student who has spent her life dealing with issues of self-esteem due to her extensive photographic memory. After initially struggling with the rigors of a new life; a new home, a new roommate, and the overwhelming feeling of being a ‘cheater’, Angelique witnesses the brutal murder of her best friend. Now she is faced with a challenge that has never been bestowed upon her – although the only witness to the heinous crime, she loses her biggest asset … her memory, which inhibits her ability to identify the killer. Unable to help the lovesick Detective Ben Mardsen track the killer, Angelique must now face the demons of her own subconscious and start her own lethal investigation in order to bring her memory back, and bring her best friend’s killer to justice. One of the greatest strengths a writer can have is the ability to bring the book to life. It’s important to find a way to enable the reader to become part of the story and actually feel like they’re a part of it. Julia Dudek makes this happen brilliantly in her debut novel. Her attention to detail is some of the best I’ve ever read. It’s unfortunate that this story has a final page because I can’t remember the last time I read a book that I didn’t want to end ... eventually. This is the type of story that completely sucks you in to the point where you can actually feel the emotions of all the characters, both main and supporting - the love, the hate, the anger, the humor, the mental anguish, the sadness, and even the need for vengeance after a brutal attack on a loved one. Julia is a wonderful story teller and her writing is nothing short of extraordinary. If you only have a few dollars left in your pocket and you really feel the need to buy something … buy this book. You won’t regret it. 5 huge stars for Julia Dudek’s debut novel, ‘Pieces’.

  • Nightmare Beach on March 02, 2010

    I was browsing through some short stories to read on my lunch break and this was the one I chose. I'm a big fan of horror stories and even though this probably wasn't meant to be humerous, I laughed my a-- off! Talk about getting right to the point. Maybe I just don't understand the meanings behind short stories, it's not a bad thing, I guess I'm just not educated enough in that type of literature. However, I read books to be entertained, and this story definitely entertained me, even if it was for 48 seconds. Nice work, Michael! --- 5 stars from me!
  • Hell on March 05, 2010

    Talk about some bad luck ... This story was as creepy as they come. The first half was insanely suspenseful, graphic, and disturbing. While I really sat on the edge of my seat waiting for the next piece of disturbia to hit me, I ended up a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this book was very well done, the problem was the creepiness dwindled just past the halfway point. It wasn't bad, it just didn't go in the direction I was expecting. This story has a lot of potential. It's a great idea, creepy as hell, and as twisted as an Eli Roth piece. I will probably think of Earl everytime I see a hitchhiker for the rest of my life.

  • Over The Bridge on March 05, 2010

    This was a real fun story. All I could think about while reading this was when you watch a thriller or a horror movie and you're yelling at the screen calling people idiots for not doing what YOU would be doing. Over the Bridge was one of the very few stories I can remember that the main character in a horror setting wasn't a complete idiot and did everything the right way, the way I would do it, haha! I also liked the little time warp aspect too. It added a little more fun and intrigue to the plot. It was equally insignificant as it was significant ... I liked that. After reading this story, that seemingly ridiculous sentence will make more sense. Good job, Randy - 5 stars!

  • Dampier Falls on March 06, 2010

    After reading a few short stories, I have determined that I will never do certain things ever again. Camping is now on that list. From start to finish, this book was unbelieveably entertaining. It was a brilliant idea. Reading or watching horror stories with characters that have common sense make it all the more pleasing. Amanda did a fantastic job with the character developments and settings. She puts you into the twisted world of this unfortunate family, and even though the book is enjoyable, you really want it to end. I'm giving it a 4-star rating. The story was awesome, but I have to take away points for some of the structure. Normally, I don't really pay attention to things like this. I don't really give a crap about spelling or punctuation errors because it happens to all of us. What caught my attention with this story was the mixing of the dialogue. What I mean by that is there were certain instances where I was confused about who was speaking. With such an intriguing page turner as this book is, I didn't like stopping when I didn't have to. It stops the blood from pumping and takes away from the excitement. I often had to stop to make sure I knew who was speaking. It was a bit distracting and it took away the emotion from the characters in heated situations. If I was to make a recommendation, I would go back and do some structural editing of this story. I normally wouldn't say that because I don't really have the right. However, I see so much potential in this story that if it were cleaned up, I really think it could go places. Despite the distraction, I would (and will) highly recommend this book, and I will definitely read Amanda's other stories.

  • Regent on March 10, 2010

    Another thrilling tale, only this time, with supernatural elements. I found this piece highly creative and like Dampier Falls, I really enjoyed it. Very creepy, loved the gore, and a great conclusion. My (respectful) critisicm of structure is still in place with this story. The creative talent this writer has is as good as they come, but the writing itself needs some improvements. Amanda, you have endless potential. Even though you have ruined any chance of me camping again due to your other story, you have a fan in me. It would be really cool if you did a few more of these stories, cleaned them up, and put them in an actual multi-storied book. I think it would be highly successful. I've had a blast reading your stories and I hope to see more. Dan Fitzpatrick, Author Vision: Evan's Book & VisionII: The Black Skull www.dansvisionproductions.com
  • Paying for College on March 10, 2010

    Not usually my type of story, but I really enjoyed it. It really makes you wonder if this is what goes on in the mind of a thief in the early stages of the life. As a former college student myself, I can sympathize with the main character struggling to pay a bill. I'm sure the thought of something similar has crossed our minds in some form or another when dealing with annoying and outrageous tuition bills. Then we ask ourselves - Is it worth it? And, Could I live with myself? Very clever story. A fun read. Dan Fitzpatrick, Author Vision: Evan's Book & VisionII: The Black Skull www.dansvisionproductions.com
