    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Evocative Short Story with Good Narration"

    This is a superior short story by Joyce. It is evocative of the life and feelings of the young man protagonist. The characters are very pleasant. The narration was very good, but I could deal with a little more Irish accent. In the most quickly read sections the narrator falls into the rhythm of the writing, but when the reader slows down the rhythm becomes suppressed. Still a great story with very good narration, well worth the 95 cents.

    Nothing, very clear speaking voice.
