Comments on Windfall by Anthony R Mackie
- Very carefully worked out. It rises gradually and effortlessly to an almost preconceived climax and then falls the way the ocean tide does. What it might lack is a twist at the end so Del Boy doesn't get away scot free... we do sort of lose respect for him, don't we?
- Take it or leave it, but for what it's worth it's my opinion that all stories need to start at the action, the background story can be slipped in as you go along. I was looking forward to reading this, imagining something like some of the great films that have been made about poker, as it was though I only got to the third paragraph before giving up.
