Well, that was a complete waste of a Saturday!

I woke up a bit earlier than normal, and was looking through my emails when I saw one recommending a story site on the internet, and one particular story.  I checked it out, and started reading at about 1pm.  It didn’t look to be too long of a story, although it was listed at 33 chapters.  Now, “chapters” on online sites tend to be a few paragraphs, so I thought I could knock that out fairly quickly.  I’m a fast reader, and can burn through a story pretty quickly.

Bad idea.

I was quickly hooked by the story, and kept reading, at several points expecting it to wrap up soon.  New twists and turns kept popping up, however, and I kept reading.  As I neared the end, I was wondering why I had developed a headache and wasn’t feeling too well.  I thought the headache might be due to the site’s rather unfortunate choice of white text on black background, that scheme is a bit uncomfortable for computer screen reading.

As I neared the final few chapters, I also noticed it was dark outside my window!  I looked at the clock, and it was nearing 11pm!  No wonder I felt lousy and had a headache!  I had been reading in bed for about ten hours!  I hadn’t had any Pepsi, and the caffeine withdrawal was kicking in, and I hadn’t eaten anything!  Normally by 11pm I’ve had two meals, but not yesterday.  Wow.  I plowed on through to finish, and turned the computer off at midnight.

I’m not going to do that again.

But, it was a good story, I liked it.  It hooked me in early, and I simply could not see where it was going.  The only things I didn’t really find believable was the age of the main character and his level of experience and maturity.  I thought the writer made many of the characters too young for the situation.  Aside from that, and some annoying spelling errors from time to time, it was a good read.

It’s not for everyone, there’s a lot of gay sex between under-age characters, but aside from that it was enjoyable.
