Reviews for The Man Without a Face
phantom-jedi chapter 1 . 9/20/2006
Neat idea! It has lots of room for development into a longer novel.

One thing, though. Wouldn't most people panic at the sight of someone transforming so obviously? I understand the necessity, but maybe some "crowd reactions" would be good.

The little flashback was good: it tells you why on earth Nolan has the powers he has. But more would be good, albeit hard to fit into a short story.

Keep up the good work!phantom_jedi
The Gobbler chapter 1 . 7/25/2006
This is awesome. I was intrigued by both the title and the summary-how could a man with no face have more than two faces? Anyway, it's great; the idea behind it and the writing. I got a clear picture of everything in my head, but it wasn't overdone; sometimes I find that people will over-describe when trying to improve their writing, but, really, I think it distracts from the plot. I found a few mistakes, stuff like, "iris's" where it should have been "irises", but other than that, well done.
Loriency chapter 1 . 3/19/2006
a couple typos, but otherwise it's well done. I enjoyed reading it. i'd like to definitely hear more from it. Why is it only a one-shot? Would you care to write more of it later? In any case, the characters were interesting, though in a short story you can at least tell what a person is like, you know, their actual character development, and I felt like that was lacking. I Nolan sarcastic? Devious? Sincere? Blunt? Quiet and pensive? You didn't do much to expand on his character, though you had ample opportunities to. I would have liked to read more of what he and...Rajita, i believe, were like. However, the story line was cool. You gave the appropriate details and information, and now all that the reader is left with is a desire to find out more about the characters and see what's going to happen next. Care to tell us, oh author...ess... XD Cya!
Barbados chapter 1 . 3/19/2006
Interesting, and enjoyable. You also seemed to cover all the bases: how he got his 'powers,' who the enemy is, why he cares, hinting that there may be more to his abilities that even he doesn't yet understand. All in all, I think it's a pretty decent short. I would definitely like to see a continuation, but yes, please finish Co8Y first. Bye!
