Reviews for Hands
YasuRan chapter 1 . 8/3/2010
I was so engrossed that I was disappointed when it ended. It felt like an excerpt from a novel :)

What I liked most was the sense of continuity throughout the story. The main concept, hands, was an omnipresent theme but didn't overshadow the events in Sian's life. Rather, it highlighted them through the subtlest of methods - the calluses of Callum's guitar-playing fingers showing his sensitivity, Thomas' little hands covered with cake, etc. The language may have been simple but arranged well enough to convey what you wanted.

Kudos!

I liked how you told this story, with the different hands Sian has experienced in her life. It was unique and you wrote it well.

I found this story very powerful, especially the ending. You set the tension at just the right level.
