This is perhaps the first book I’ve read by CT Mitchell, and it was a delightful experience. The author has a way with words and the suspense in this story will force you to go on reading and unveiling the plot.
This is also my first murder-mystery book, and I enjoyed the many twists and turns throughout the story. Character development is spot on, and I love the duo formed by Jack and Jo and how they manage to solve the case.
I did find a few minor typos and grammatical errors, and the author could have used more pronouns instead of using the names of the detectives so many times. But besides these minor issues, this is a great novel and I highly recommend it to those who love reading mysteries.
Cool story yo
I like the tone and general direction of this novel. I managed to read just the first 3 chapters, but it’s quite an engaging story and I will most likely see it through to the end.
What I really liked about this story is that you’ve breathed life into all the characters. I mean I can actually feel Delphine’s pain at being the cause for her boyfriend’s death. You have a very unique writing style, and I really enjoyed reading your work.
On a more critical note, you may want to consider proofreading the novel a couple of times before submitting it. The sentences are fine, and subject-verb agreement is on point. But there are a few misspelled words and typos that make the story look a little shabby. I think once you remove these typos from your story, you’ll be one step closer to getting it published. Good luck!
A thrilling tale
I love the concept that you’re working with in this novel. It’s brilliant! The Earth is devastated and there’s one guy who’s woken up after 2200 years? It can’t get better than that!
You’ve got some serious writing skills. You’ve managed to capture how someone would feel if they were ever in this situation, and I must applaud you for that. Great job!
I also like how time has changed the way humans think, speak, and behave; it makes the story all the more realistic. I read only the first 5 chapters, but I’ve enjoyed every bit I’ve read so far.
Most of all, I love how this entire new world has been warped so much. It gives me some idea of how human civilisation will begin to look in the next few millennia, if we’re still around.
Great job! I hope your book gets published soon!
A great read
I’d say this is a very interesting story, full of little twists and turns. I’m not such a big fan of adventure-type stories, but you got me hooked onto this one! You’ve got a unique style of writing, and I like how you’ve managed to bring the characters to life. Both Jamie and Freya are really cool characters, and I enjoyed following their exploits throughout the novel.
This story makes for a great read as there is a lot of suspense, and I’m constantly trying to uncover more of the story so I can figure out what’s happening.
I also like how you’ve spaced out the paragraphs and included just the right amount of information in each section. It made the story a lot easier to read.
Keep doing what you’re doing, and good luck with your next novel!
Needs a little work
I really like the prologue of this story, where you’ve described the Samurai and their bushido, or way of life. But the problem is, it says nothing about the story you’re writing, and the first two chapters confused me a little.
On the writing bit, I think you should edit and proofread your story a couple of times before uploading it. There are many typos and spelling mistakes, and these minor issues make the novel look shabby. I also see a lot of unnecessary exclamation marks and spaces between the end of a sentence and the full stop. Weed out these silly mistakes, and you’ll make the story more enjoyable for the reader.
Besides these issues, the story itself is fine. You could improve on the quality of your writing. That way you can heighten the drama by bringing your characters to life.
A powerful story
A really touching story about how all of us struggle to fulfill our dreams and how a single event can shatter everything you’ve worked for. Being an Indian, I think it was a lot easier for me to relate to this story. I’ve been through the pressure of having your parents tell you that what you’re trying to achieve is pointless, and you have to get a ‘real’ job like everyone else.
I like how Rachana is in a constant struggle with her emotions and how she manages to come out on top eventually. I haven’t read the whole story yet, but it looks great the way it’s going.
The skater, Jenny Nguyen is also an important part of the story and I like how you’ve managed to convey how important she is in Rachana’s life.
All in all, a great story, and I wish you luck with this novel!
Children will lke it
I know I’m not a kid, but I still had fun reading your children’s horror story. It was quite enjoyable!
The best part about this story is that it makes absolutely no sense at first. I mean I couldn’t seem to follow what was going on till I was at least 5 chapters in. But as you continue to read, more and more of the story starts to reveal itself, and you begin to understand what’s going on.
I’d like to congratulate you on the idea of the story. It’s difficult to write for kids, and you seem to have done a splendid job of it. I’m sure if this book gets published that it will be read by hundreds of kids the world over.
On a more critical note, I think you need to pay more attention to the punctuation and grammar as there are minor typos throughout the story. Clean these up, and you’re good to go!
