Reviews for Gungravel
Stewart MacDonald chapter 6 . 2/15/2012
Awesome. I too have a guilty passion for Westerns, especially ones with decent stories, and badass characters. After reading your other narrative, I thought I'd check out your other stuff too, and I'm glad I did. This was really impressive. Flow was near perfect. A couple times I thought a bit of the word use was awkward, but maybe I just didn't have the rythm right in my head. But it barely took anything away from it. Classis story, and is definitely being fav'd. Keep up the awesome work!

Gungravel was a blast; one of the best I've ever read. The poem flowed and the story was tense and fascinating from the start. This must have taken a long time to write, especially for a human author who is so... average in every way.

I have one suggestion.

In part 2: Hester's tale I noticed this line: I didn't think as well he had a hope in hell, but the bastard was alive. I just think it would sound better without the 'as well' part. But I should mention that my education was limited to vocational training.

I normally do not like westerns at all, but this one was rather good.

I love this. I hate Westerns, I never like epics, and I hardly ever read anything that isn't a one-shot and get instantly committed, but I LOVE this. Please keep it coming. You're really talented, I think.

Oh, you move it along while keeping the ryhme steady AND squeezed in some characterization. Is the dead man a cowboy?

I'm no epic writer, but this is awesome. Nice rhymes, too.

Good luck!

I LOVE the rhyme scheme. It suits the epic so well, and makes it flow like a story, not to mention its a western so it could be told around campfires and fun stuff like that. Great intro, please post more!
