Just because the main elements are there - a good perplexing plot, well developed characters, etc., that doesn't mean you automatically get a good story. TTAT comes from tje writer's talent and skill. Thank you, M. R. Mathias. For a very good story.

An excellent read, funny without being downright crude. Its well balanced with enough detail without going too indepth. I loved it

The writer shows promise, and can easily hold your attention with this simply plotted yet engaging story. The characters are interesting enough, though some seem a bit off (maybe too one-dimensional). All in all, I'd recommend it to any fan of fantasy.

Good story

The writer is clunky and lacking in creativity; too much telling and not enough showing. The characters are stock and the description, nonexistent. To the author's credit, there are no grammar errors, but that does not atone for a dull and uninspired work.
