Editor’s First Impression

By Chris Poirier, editor

Aug 20, 2011: Excessive use of the past-perfect tense and simple, declarative sentences makes the text seem very repetitive. There’s no dialogue whatsoever—the story is told by one voice throughout. Oddly, though, it’s still a fast read, and, despite lacking any real characterization, has some life. Could be worth a look if you like old-fashioned, British-sounding narratives about not-very-nice people.
