Reviews for Dreams of Dust

Absolutely intriguing. From start to finish the ideas and the concepts that created this story pulled me in and kept me there. The writing style was excellent as well as the creative imaginings that went into such a story. Well done.

Amazing! Artful weaving of stages of grief not only for the main characters self but also for his wife, best friend, mother and Old America. The character interactions were heartfelt and endearing. The emotion, fear and uncertainty helped the reader relate to Kyle, making him more human. The priest was very well written as well, winning our loyalty then shocking us with a twist of bitterness. Great work!

I'm surprised you don't have more reviews for this! It's a very original, thoughtful story with none of those annoying cliches. I appreciated how you didn't explain anything (like Dreaming, the Infected, etc), but showed it to us through the main character's eyes. Very well done. The ending also was nicely done, and even though I much prefer more cheerful endings, you tied everything off on a beautiful note.

That said, I'm quite intrigued by this world and tale you created. If you expanded on it a bit more and ironed out the wrinkles, I believe you'd have a publish-worthy novel on your hands.

Well done, beautiful. Idea great, writing great, characters great, story great. i didn't want it to end. I think that you approch key parts in the story a little quickly. They get kind of clipped and merge into the rest of the action. Some of the relationships didn't feel fully fleshed out. and you had the classic problem of opening so many pathways in this post cataclym world that you never answered.

This was a wonderful chapter. You portray the emotions that he is feeling very vividly. I hope that Sam is alright in the end.

This is a really good piece, the style is good, everything flows, and the world is very believable.

May I suggest you get an account on . It's a writing website where you can post your work same as here, but you will get more reviews because of the way it works. A lot of the people reviewing there are very experienced / have had work published, so you will get better advice. Any questions, email me on

I think you could go really far with this story.

Good luck.

I have really enjoyed reading this story so far. The world you have created is very unique and believable. I was so sad when he found out that the other Somnam died. I hope that Sam is all right, although I suspect that he has not just forgotten to come in.

a beautiful section indeed, my fellow smither of words

dreams are limitless, boundless, a place where time rules nothing and space is irrelevant and infinite

i like this passage, and hope that the story includes many more dream sequences, especially ones that help the story to flow

but nevermind what i say, just remember to have fun and be free

thats what its all about

well almost all

p.s. are the rocks that keep making him trip there for symbolism?

if not, repetition of similar incidents might get a bit tedious or uniteresting (if you have any problem with anything i say, just remamber that its not about what i think, its about what YOU think

I'm getting hooked already.

just remember:

Fast paced beginnings-lots of new material created quickly, mysterious circumstances

ease ins and in between- name says all, just ease in your characters

perfect these types of intros and become an EXPERT

by the way, don't forget to describe the characters themselves first and foremost, as they are the highlight of your story above all!

keep up the good work
