Review #1, by AlexFan Empty Chairs

8th June 2014:
This was so beautiful, a father mourning the death of his wife and child. I think that's probably the most difficult thing that a person would ever have to learn to be okay with. I'm having a hard time imagining Fred moving on from this tragedy.

You could really feel Fred's sadness in this and how incapable of coping with his life. The entire time that I kept reading I was wondering what had happened to his wife and child and then you finally told the reader in the end. It's just so sad to think that if Clara and Maya hadn't gone out that day, they would've been safe.

I can understand that his family was worried about him so they were constantly watching out for him, which I can see that Fred needed so that he wouldn't do something stupid, but at the same time, it didn't seem like Fred was going to do something reckless, I felt like he just wanted to grieve in silence.

Absolutely brilliant story!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review! This is one of the hardest things I've ever had to write, but I loved writing it. I agree that I can't really imagine Freddie completely moving on, either. And it's always sad to think about what would've happened if something had been different, but I also believe that everything happens for a reason. And Freddie isn't the type of person that would do something stupid, no matter how bad things are. And you're right that he wanted to grieve in silence.
Thanks again for the review! I'm glad that you think its brilliant. Maybe if you have the time, you could check out my other stories? Thanks again.

This is a really good story. You really showed what it's like to loose someone. You. May want to refine the spacing using the simple editor just to make it easier to read but apart from that this story really liked on my heartstrings.

Author's Response: Thanks. Sorry about weird spacing problem. I'll try to fix it ASAP. Thanks again for the review!! :)
