His Story by Zabrina Way - Review

Review of His Story Zabrina Way

This is a standalone short story that can be read in one sitting. It's for the most part strongly written, and the central idea is good - a man sitting observing the world go by, making up stories about the people he sees, all the while claiming "this story is not about me". But of course it is, really, and he reveals more about himself than he intends.

I think this must be the first work by Zabrina Way and there's a certain beginner's energy to it that obscures any small flaws. Worth reading, and an author worth keeping an eye on.

I stumbled on this from Google. Smile Thank you so much for your kind review.

I'm quite glad the "beginner's energy" shines through, and yes, this is the first fictional work I have "officially" published, though I make my living writing non-fiction. Smile

My current plan is to publish an anthology in early 2012 of about six to eight short stories.
