Reviews for Voices in the Dark
Nemonus chapter 1 . 5/18/2006
Cool! Though possibly this was part of the creative writing assigment, I thought there was too much labeling of the dialogue in the beginning, where every sentance had a 'tag' of who was speaking. I'd also like sound-description of the voices, though I don't fully know how to do that yet. At the revelation; "The first speaker finished the sentence. "The universal translator has been on this whole time"" I had to laugh. That's cool. Obviously what's going on-I think-is that the captors are future humans. Nice. ~Cy

Not bad. It was intriguing, though short. I liked its many twists and turns, especially the end. What I didn't like, though, was the fact that almost every single line of dialogue was accompanied by an explanatory phrase (ie- his partner inquired, the second speaker suggested.) While some were necessary, I suppose, it got repetitive since this story is comprised mainly of dialogue. Besides this detail, I found this a very creative and interesting piece.

Very interesting. I, unfortunately, do not have your talent for interpretation. It seems to be some kind of abduction and you mentioned that the subject was "phazed" and the only time I've ever heard that was on Star Trek (something about setting them on stun). However, I don't know much about sci fi, so it's a little difficult...It would be really funny if the subject for study was actually an alien and the speakers were human, wouldn't it? Funny in a twlight-zone kind of to you soon ;)-Searchlight

Very interesting... sounds like an alien abduction of someone with a universal translator...

This reminds me of Commander Riker on Star Trek when he was abducted by who knows who from another dimension. That was a strange episode.

Very creative! Please explain more... thanks.
