Reviews for The Gallows
philosophythemes chapter 1 . 7/16/2013
There are not a whole lot of tragic westerns on this website. I really like this perspective for contemplating the reality of death. The themes of justice, the value of a human life, the love a family shares, and mob mentality are interwoven perfectly. The only flaw in this work is unvaried syntax. Almost every sentence begins with the subject, whether it be "I", "The Sheriff", "We", or something else. At the end, this pattern of syntax aids the quick transition of thoughts, but, in general, the structure of a sentence should be varied. The story is good, but I recommend keeping this in mind for future works. I hope this helps.
