Reviews for Styx
Hope chapter 1 . 10/27/2009
I liked the spare description and the subtle way you fulfilled the rhyme: I had to read it twice to figure out exactly what was old, what was new, etc. Was the gun standing in as both borrowed and old?

Anyway, I liked the fixed, mechanical style of the narration. The repetition of simple commands in short sentences gives the piece of feeling almost of resignation, as though she has run out of emotion. Well done.
