I write, read and review, I blog frequently and love anything to do with books and writing, including editing. I am a Book Nerd and I wear that badge with pride. http://coffee2words.wordpress.com
This is the lowest I've rated one of Tony's pieces. I have read 16 of his novels and short stories, but this one just irritated me to no end. It wasn't even the story, that was really interesting and I think would have got 4 stars if it weren't for the repetitive narration of the child.
I just couldn't get over the repetitiveness and the random capitalisation of words like 'Get Mad' or 'For My Own Good'. I wanted to fix them, and it just threw me right out of the story.
This might be a perfect little tale for you if you're not as sensitive to editing as I am.
