Our Review

“Stomping on the Heels of a Fuss,” by Eric Roab has a number of interesting elements, but this doesn’t do much to make up for its flaws. The best part is the juxtaposition in the perspective of the two cultures. On one side you have the human anthropologist, on the other you have the animalistic Brutes. Switching between the two provides a healthy contrast which is what keeps the pace moving. However, the characterization and thought processes of the characters feels very two-dimensional. In general they don’t feel real, and the dialogue feels…written. In addition the ending is sudden and unexpected, which wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t also completely unnecessary. That for me was the hardest bit to swallow Overall, not the best.
