Entertaining story with a healthy dose of absurdism. For me, that was the best part of the story, and I would have liked to see even more outlandishness. I also used humor in my story, "Dating Safari," and I'd love it if you'd read it and share your thoughts.

I was taken from the start. I could vividly imagine myself in the characters shoes going through what He was going through. I felt like my life as the character was unfinished. There has to be more. Needs a sequial.

I cannot express how this roller coaster ride went, other than it was not the ending I anticipated! I enjoyed the ride! Is it bad to snicker at the pain of others? I really do feel for the guy! Total enjoyment.

What an amazing imagination! I got lost somewhere between being on the beach and then the luddinites and whatever and couldn't help but laugh as I started to understand the weave of the words and the meanings. It was indeed an interesting read and I enjoyed it. Ciao, Patricia

Outstanding. Simply outstanding. It read like a behind-the-scenes interview with a background character from a James Bond film gone horribly wrong. Your prose went at just the right pace, and while several ancillary characters and organizations are introduced or referenced, nothing seemed superfluous. I hope you're able to move up in the competition.

I found this hilarious. The tone had me cracking up often. The "massage skills" were tastefully described too. It also made me feel not so bad at having had to spend so many hours working on a short video. My problems were nothing compared to the guy in this story.
