| Danica Blake chapter 8 . 5/16/2006
Great story/plot and absolutely awesome characters. Luke and Victoria are really well written-funny, witty, biting and somehow charming.
| dotcult chapter 8 . 5/16/2006
a little slow and uneventful, but it held some purpose. i just hope that you have a good plan for luke. he did something that intimates he's got a surefire plan, which will surely fall in front of the "unexpected" save by his friend Brad. dont let that happen. the luke you've created thus far would see that coming. he can read brea vicky. please remember that as you write this next chapter. and oh yeah, write on!

I liked the old summary better as well.
I really enjoy your writing. Not just plot-wise, but the actual technical aspect of it. I am jealous of your sentences. Your adjectives, adverbs...they're all so fresh. I'm reading them [your sentences] over and over again. Hopefully I'll be able to use what I glean. Shamless and ashamed. A solution in some conviction. I love the rhyming scheme.
But I am getting annoyed by the constant references to Ayn Rand.
And, for the first part of chapter five (when writing about Madison) the writing gets very repetitive. You impart nothing that is concrete. All I saw for about three paragraphs was equivocation. If there is some profound meaning in the words I didn't recognize, then I suppose I'm wrong and dont' know how to analyze literature or whatnot. But unlike with your descriptions of Madison in he first chapter, or your descriptions of Luke and Vicky, the Madison description here was just confusing and abstract.
I see you are an Ayn Rand fan... I overlooked the mention of Rand in "The Parquet" ...though I personally think Rand is stupid and can't abide her shallow pop-philosophy, -'pop': ironic, isn't it?-, I will try not to let that affect my judgement of your story.
Haha, who am I kidding, I'm highly biased and I know this.
I can't (didn't even think of) ask you to leave allus\ons to Rand out, because it has presumably influenced you and elicited enough admiration so that you would include it in this story (and The Parquet).
I just brought up Rand because I think it is (now) a majot reason for my dislike of Madison. (yes, something concrete) Vicky, of course, is easy to empathize with. Madison, on the other hand, seems like a deluded psuedo-something... eh, I'm sorry if I'm being incoherent. I know I've made a lot of typos because I am literaly half asleep. Err.. Schopenhaeur has a point: reading sometimes does make people more stupid. And sorry if my thoughts seem disconnected. I am disconnected
I admire Pulitzer too, and especially Hearst. Brilliant opportunists.

This chapter was much too short!
I love how you described Victoria hating that her literature class loved Eliot as much as she did... I've had moments when I've felt the same way... before another part of me slaps me and tells me to get over myself. But I totally understand the sentiment.
The shift in point of view in the middle of the chapter caused me a brief moment of confusion, although I caught on soon enough. You might want to consider labelling it, or, if broadcasting it out isn't your thing, leaving a bit more space between the paragraphs where it switches. Just a thought.
Anyway, keep writing!
