Reviews

The Last of the Troubadours

(5 stars)

This story was hilarious. It wasn't meant to be. The reader made it so. It is always amusing when someone tries to fake a Texas accent. Daaaaince? All of the stories are worth listening to.

In The Penal Colony- Kafka

(5 stars)

My first time reading Kafka- pleasantly suprised. The title and reader drew me in- the simplicity and horrifying elegance of the machine held me until the very end... Great Writing, Superb Reader.
