Mike, this first chapter already has me wondering what's ahead with the children. Again, I'm waiting for the next chapter! I hope you post the chapters quickly.

This is the first thing I've ever read by you, and I found this chapter extremely intriguing. The scene you painted gave just the right mix of eerie and mysterious. I look forward to reading more.

Ok, I'm hooked. I have to know what the shots are and how did Sissy decide not to scream. What is the prize for suffering and what does his grandmother have to do with the story line.

Excellent characterization and detailing. I'm hooked already. I like how he seems to still take pleasure in the little things like the hot meals and his chamber pot being changed. I like the optimism of his youth and also the strength and determination he has to be able to deal with these hardships.

I'm intrigued and intend to follow this book. Well done but then that's why you have these ratings. I'm learning a great deal from the really good writers and just found out through you that you can continue to edit even as you post. Thank you for that. Good reading.

    Thank you for the terrific review. Editing my first novel is a chore and will take longer than I thought, so to keep the creative juices flowing, I'm writing the first draft of my second novel.
    It helps keep me motivated.

Intriguing. I am interested in seeing why Johnny is where he is, and why Sissy and he are the only one's showing promise...For what? The story flows well and leaves many unanswered questions.

Intriguing chapter-seems like it will be a good compelling read. Suspenseful and frightening, just the way I like them. Will be looking for more.

This work has reached the exceptional level

Hello!
I have no idea where this is going, but I am excited to read your next installment.Your writing engages the reader from the onset. Your characterization is compelling; the dialogue is genuine. Cliff-hanger at the end! A great recipe for a novel!

    This story has a lot of twists and turns, so it should be fun to write.
