It was just...wow.
| spazzle dazzle chapter 17 . 2/13/2006
As much as it shames me to say this, Fictionpress is a big part of my life. During classes, at home, at other people's houses...wherever I go, I have to check up on my stories, see if they've been updated, and look for new ones. Just recently, I was upset because a lot of my favorite stories are coming to an end, and I could not find anything to read. Reading is my life, my passion, I live for stories. Just today, while browsing through one of my author's favorite author's favorite author's story, I came across yours. There is only one thing I have to say...
Seriously, wow. I cannot believe how well written this story is. I feel like I am Eve. I can feel all her emotions, especially her emotions around Matt. I feel the love between them, and I feel like they are real people. Not very many authors have the talent to make a reader feel as if they are in the story, as if they are the story.
I am only half way through the story so far, so expect another review from me when I finish. So far, you have without a doubt surpassed any other story I have read on this site. And trust me, I've read a lot...
The only thing I found faulty with your story is your summary. It doesn't do your story justice at all. I looked at the summary and almost passed right by the story because it didn't look very interesting. Boy, am I glad I changed my mind. I think you should change your summary, make it more interesting, spice it up a little!
I still can't get over how great this story is. I'm going to go back to reading the rest now...
You are a great writer with a lot of talent. I hope your prosper in whatever you do in life!

Amazing story. I am so sad that I do not have a spot for it on my favorite's list. I might clear a spot out, just for you, because this was one of the best stories I have read.
to answer your questions...
Who was your favorite character and more importantly, WHY?
I loved Matt. How he was shy, and how strong and caring he was.
-What was your favorite scene in the story?
Way to many to pick out a favorite...
-What could have been improved?
Nothing. It was an amazing story all by itself.
-What part did you least expect in the story?
The Ali part was a 80% shocker. I did not expect it, but I did pick up on it the tiniest bit...I guess that it was because of me reading to many novels. The Killing of the sister was a 100% shocker, as was the dressmaker being Malone.
-If you were to sum up this story in a few lines, what would you say about it?
Amazing. It has great characters and a great, well thought through and well developed plot. I loved it.
Congrats on finishing!
(*hopes for a sequal with Eve and Matt*)

I loved this story. There was just so much emotion beneath the characters. Gah, I can't even explain to you how awesome this story was. And you made my day by putting my favorite song quote at the end [Cat Stevens original but Sheryl Crow did an awesome job covering it]. Anyway, once again I'd like to say I loved this story.

I'm writing in the 500th review! hooray for me! i love this story. its so beautiful. one of my favorite chapters was when Eve and Matt almost made love but then he pulled back. i just thought it was so absolutley sweet. not the fact that he pulled back cuz thats kinda mean but the thought behind it. i was totally in love with that chapter. And Ricky. i thought he was such a great character just cuz u could really tell who he was and u could understand the reason behind everything he does. i really loved this story and i cant wait to read some more...hopefulyl a sequel! ;)

Fast, but appropriate. I like it.
| Water Block chapter 5 . 7/16/2005
I was sondering when the mafia stuff would become more blatant.
| Water Block chapter 4 . 7/16/2005
I liked how Will bailed Eve out, but I feel a little guilty for her-what with lying to her best friend, and, yeah, that's it.
| Water Block chapter 3 . 7/16/2005
Besides the blind support for the war, this is a good story.
I like the characters, and the plot is interesting. Also, the grammer is well done, and flows well.
| Water Block chapter 2 . 7/15/2005
Ah. I'm confused on how her parents were killed, but her dad is still alive-was she raised by fake parents, or did her parents fake their death to escape...I think I believe the second one more.
