*An eBook Short Story
If you're anything like me, there are times a book sounds perfect when it's read aloud. There's something about my voice when I read a book that's near magical. Really! The only time I doesn't sound well is when I'm on video. I'm nasal. Anyway, while reading the awesome Mirror, Mirror, by Anthony M. Strong, I had to take some serious deep breaths!
The story is about Jamie, a college student who happens to go 'junking' on the wrong day. He finds a gothic mirror that he simply must take home, but this mirror has more than a reflection in store. Something's inside the rough looking piece and it wants Jamie. Can he figure out what's happening before it's too late?
So this story was AMAZING! But I have to tell you- dude was dumb! Every thing Jamie did made me think of Eddie Murphy, back during his Raw days. You know the part about poltergeists? Jamie did a bunch of stuff that I'd have never done, but that makes a story, yeah?
The one and only thing that irked me to no end were the very long sentences. It's as if Strong was in a rush to get the story all out or something. The sentences flowed well, he just didn't want them to end! I would nearly run out of breath, at least two times, on each page! It was exhausting, but the story is so good- I didnt' care one bit! Here's an example:
He took the mirror, the heaviest of the items he’d scored, and entered the building, grunting as he heaved it up the two flights of stairs to the third floor, cursing the fact that the elevator was out of order yet again.Strong, Anthony M.

That's a long sentence, you know? But, I kid you not, the story is fantastic! You have to check it out: it's FREE on Amazon.com! I'm off to the next read!
