Reactions and Reviews

This is a very well done fiction--excellent plot and spot-on characterizations (from what I remember of the program!) I enjoyed the forst chapters so much I searched out all the other AS&J fics and read those too. The closeness the boys share--the worry, the care, and the love between them-- just beautiful. I am suspicious of thier latest deal--I don't trust Christine Harkness. Please hurry back with the next chapter! [2]
Extrordinary!!! You kept thier characters true to themselves the whole way! And the plot was fabulous! It made me think of such great stories as the Shawshank Redemption - Outlander(Diana Gabeldon) - and of the frightning stories of Steven King! All rolled in an ASJ story! Imagine this as a screenplay! Oh How Peter and Ben would have loved it! Keep writing! [3]
Loved this story! I hope that you write more. It was dark and parts made me uneasy, but you kept the characterizations of them both genuine. Good job! [4]
I loved this! I started last night and thankfully have the day off so I finished this morning. Wonderfully written and stayed in character - under those conditions.[5]
