Reviews for The Unexpected Benefits of Bowling
CassandraStacy chapter 1 . 7/15/2010
I like this story a lot. It was really cute. Even though there wasn't much dialogue in it, you still managed to capture and keep my attention. I loved how she progressively saw more and more of him until she finally saw the whole of him! The ending was also perfect; you could have dragged it on by showing their game and having some cheesy sap in the process. But instead, you left it open to our interpretation. And bowling . . . def. seems like a great stress reliever!

That was so incredibly sweet that I can't put it into words how sweet it was. It was also really funny.

I love the main character.

She's awesome.

All in all, GREAT one-shot!

Love it!

That was cute! And I like how there wasn't really any talking until the end. I also like that she didn't get to her goal because it made it more real and somehow more fun. I really liked this, and I'm surprised that your descriptions could keep my attention. With stuff like this, I usually skip over the long, boring looking paragraphs, but this time I didn't.

Great job. This is going in my favorites. :)

"I shake my head and put in my initial. That's enough. Nobody needs to know who I am. I am the angry woman on lane one. I backspace my initial and instead put in A.W.O. Angry woman on one. That's me, officially. I am woman, hear me roar."

I absolutely love your writing style. Seriously. The narration was hilarious and you managed to keep her voice in character really well. I also love how we get to learn about the other characters through the little hints that she gives us throughout the story. Not to mention that nameless characters are a favourite of mine :P

Overall, awesome story. Three thumbs up :D

Hmm, I’ve been wondering why my classmates are so obsessed with bowling, and now I realize that when you strike all those pins down, you’re releasing all your anger. No wonder my bowling-loving classmates all seem so happy and peaceful. By the way, I love this story. Its plot is believable, plus the pin boy is so cute that I'm tempted to date him.

This was great! I just loved it. I love the fact that it's written frame by frame. I also love how the characters don't have names. I love...agh. I love everything about it! It was awesome, and it made me grin like a maniac. (: Very well done! I love your writing style.

Oh, it was totally worth posting! I really enjoyed this ONE-SHOT! It's always nice to read a well-written piece of fiction, especially if it has an intriguing plot. Well done!

Oh, I adored this. The frames provided a good structure. And I felt like I could relate to this since I bowl better when I'm angry, too! :)

Cute Story. I love how the bowling ball is personified; nice work.

I thought this was a cute little piece. Nice emotion and the frames of bowling helps move the reader through it. I love bowling and have had a few run ins with cuties there so I'm glad someone combined both into one piece. :) Terrific.
