Negative Reaction; A Short Story

Rated 3.50 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)

Every night, as Marshall was growing up, he noticed how his father was becoming an alcoholic. He’d sit on the couch, holding a Budweiser and staring at something that looked like a necklace. Because Freddy had also become somewhat violent, Marshall never dared to ask about the necklace.

Some people take pictures because they want to make memories. They want to come back and be able to remember a time and special occasion for them. Others, however, take pictures because they want to destroy a memory, corrupt it, and make someone feel so bad she/he thinks life isn’t worth living anymore. This is what happened in Negative Reaction, Gabriel Lucatero’s short story. Go ahead, open up the book, read a few pages, and take your side. What is your main reason when you take a photograph?

    I liked this story. I’m giving him three stars for effort. I know this is one of the author’s first stories. I am currently reading Underneath and the difference is very obvious. It’s no doubt the author has been honing his style through the years.

  2. 4 out of 5

    I agree with Brian. The story is good but it could use more description. I am giving 4 stars because I like the way Gabriel Lucatero wrote the story. It has a very Twilight-Zone- kinda feel to it. I wonder if he got inspiration from that show.
