The Great Bob Stansbury Reviewed

I keep a pretty simple rule on writing. I only write it if its fun to write and interesting to read

Four-Star Review from "Radio Lab Listener":
"Not The Great American novel or even a Hugo or Nebula Award-winning novel, but definitely creative and thought-provoking! It takes rather playful liberties with fantasy-fairytale plots to raise some quite interesting questions about human nature. Still, the story is still fun, suspenseful, and keeps the reader's attention. In other words, it doesn't feel like a lecture on human nature.
An average person, Bob Stansbury, undertakes heroic actions when faced with difficult situations that demand heroism. More suprisingly, an "Ogre" turns out to be at least as human (in terms of her flaws and her positive qualities) as any of the humans in the story. It is also a story about what it means to have a life full of purpose and the difficulty of knowing one's purpose in living.
This is both one of the most thought-provoking and one of the more creative and playful stories that I have read for some time. I didn't give it a five because the writing style could still use some polishing, but that didn't get in the way way of my enjoyment."
