Gosh Darn, I actually got it together and wrote the review. Man, I made this guy sound like a stinkin' Sci-fi genius.
The trouble is, the guy who assigned the job is a Business man, so his communication skills are dreck. Who knows if I'll get the job, but at least I learned something...what, I'm not sure yet. Oh, maybe that worry has it uses.
Congratulations! I read your earlier thread with interest. (Didn't reply -- computer meltdown). I too have a friend who writes science fiction and fantasy. It's not a genre I normally read but I read all of hers. Luckily she's really funny and I can hear her "voice" in her fiction so I enjoy her books. I wouldn't want to try and write a review though.
Well thanks t'ai chi. The worst part about writing the review was finding the positive things to say about it. I threw in some basic important words-- "intergalactic, mission, planetary, good against evil" etc. I had a friend read it over and I asked her if she thought my use of the word 'breathless" was too feminine a word, seeing as the writer was a guy.
Her reply: "No, because when they take off their space helmets, they really are breathless." Touche.
