    What A Fantastic Story.

    It always amazes me how an author can, with just a few words, create. Be it creating an image of a person, a sense of emotion or an entire world, the power of words never ceases to amaze me,

    My reason for this opening statement is I am astounded that in just 4 short hours Zack Brooks has created a living, breathing world, an incredibly likeable character and made me equal parts saddened by his plight and excited for his tale.

    This is a strangely emotive story that touches on such subjects as racism, loss and guilt and I grew in just a few short hours to really care Roland and I was really cheering for him through all the difficult situations he finds himself in and Sean Duregger’s excellent narration really brought the little man to life.

    I admit that when it ended I was sad to see his tale end so suddenly and I can only hope that, one day, I’ll get to experience more of Roland’s exploits in Amaford and maybe, just maybe, visit Berstead.
