Lickety Split Reviews
Lickety Split is a great read! Marlin Williams has created a Short Story that is a roller coaster thrill ride of human emotions and dreams. I wanted the ride to continue!
Lickety Split is a standalone, 35-page short story concerning Miss Coaly Banks, who at best can be described as "very full-figured". Marlin Williams blends a number of genres into the story - some terror, some suspense, and even some humor - but at its heart, this is a situational ethics story, examining what a person will do to gain, and keep, his/her fondest wish. Coaly is, of course, the primary character, but it's fun to meet the couple other ones as well. They're all "gray" in character, and I liked that. I thought Mr. Simon was a hoot, I wouldn't mind meeting him again in some future story by the author. Structurally, the fun starts immediately, the pace is fast, and it has a Marlin Williams trademark "double-twist" ending, with a nice moral-to-the-story thrown in as a bonus. 4½ stars, and we'll round it up to 5 stars since Lickety Split does everything a short story should, including keeping me entertained from beginning to end.
