Cover of The Innocence Device


Here is a nice review of THE INNOCENCE DEVICE from an English teacher in Ontario. What I especially like about this review is that he seems to understand why Rapid Reads books are written–they’re for an audience of new adult readers, who for any of a variety of reasons have started reading late in life. Not every reviewer or commenter seems to get that. The language is deliberately simple, which is actually much harder to pull off than my natural writing voice. Remember the old Mark Twain joke–something like “Please excuse the fact that this letter is so long, but I lacked the time to make it shorter”? One of the greatest compliments an author can receive is to be told that they make writing look easy.
