the velvet sofa Reviews
Wish it were longer! Was not expecting the twist at the end. I'd like a bit more length, but at the same time it's a great short story. Short enough for a good lunch break read!
What a tangled web we weave ...I'll let you finish the quote.Like others I read this in one setting, the strength of the story lies in the twists and turns along the way. The status relationship between Carl and Maria shifts throughout maintaining the interest and suspense.The description in the other part of the shop evokes that old, dusty atmosphere much like the sofa itselfSean develops and portrays the characters extremely well, I immediately thought of Orson Welles as the old man in the shop albeit without the English accent.An easy read and a great example of an entertaining short story.Paul A.
A bit of a red herring are we. If you just want humor, then yes, very funny. If you want a mystery or plot that makes sense....uh, not so much. So if all you want is couch humor, then go ahead and buy.
Good little mysteryThe Velvet Sofa is a quick and entertaining read. A nice little mystery wrapped up for the taking. Well written and the mystery isn't revealed too quickly.
