"I'm a bit confused as to the tension between carrie and smith. It wasn't dealt with as to why they dislike one another or why she's such a problem in the station. I liked the interaction between the police officer but there seemed not to be really any conflict to speak out outside of the change in the station houses. The election of 1996 took the center stage but I wasn't sure as to why. A story needs conflict and this one seemed lacking of any with substance. It was difficult to keep reading because nothing sparked my interests. I didn't identiy with any of your characters." -- e. rocco caldwell.
"I though that was explained in the first two book, I guess it wasn't clear enough. Carrie is a natural born trouble-causer, and nobody likes her at work. That is the breaking point in this, they become friends. The electon is centered on because the story HAPPENED to be set in 1996 by the timeline set with the first two (you have to read carefully to find it), so I though I could express how dangerous politics can be towards friendships, even old ones. I also wanted to write about respecting opinions." -- collins, IN, IN, US.
"It might have been explained in the first books but I didn't read them. If you are going to write separate books you must still establish conflict and background on each character. Never assume people read your first book!" -- e. rocco caldwell.
"Hello again, Collins! I must say that this was a nice addition to the series, but I do agree with rocco in there being no conflict in the story. You do, however, show much potential, and I think--after you've matured--you should edit these stories, lump all of them together and label it "The Adventures of Smith and Ronalds". Ok, my criticisms are below. I found very few things wrong this go-around. Here we go: "Just go back to you’re daily work and if the reports are true than I will inform you." 'You're' should be your. “Are you exited about the election?” That should read 'excited'. "AS THEY MUST CONTINUE THERE LIVE AS IF ALL WAS NORMAL." That should be 'Lives'. "Feuds were breaking out as well as employees argued" That should be 'arguing'. “I some times wish..." That should be 'sometimes'. "They taped their glasses." That should be 'tapped'. "I WILL OPEN IT TOMORROW OR LATTER." That should be 'later'. "Joe Webb: Station 3’" How is it that David and Trevor don't know Joe Webb when he works at Station 3? "and David two favorites" That should read, "David's two favorites'. "It covered every thing from the deaths of three of their friend" That should be 'friends'. I must say too, that you have a wonderful flair for dialogue, which is always a good asset that any writer would want to possess. Until tomorrow then, take care. " -- Michael Harris, Detroit.
"Well, as for the Joe Webb thing, the stations are all different buldings. I mean, I doubt that cops know everyone that they work for. Also, Joe was a new version addition. It is the name of my best friends grandpa, who dies recently. It and the whole part where they mention the officers at the meeting was done so I had an excuse to mention the character 'Ella Begri', who is an important character as time goes by. You really have no idea how much I appriciate you reviewing my WHOLE series! It is very cool of you. Thanks. I am reading the Deluded Youth now, and the review will be up shortly." -- collins.
