Wow! Was this part of the same series as Not the Norm (A Sub-Normal short story by Becca J. Campbell?

I fell into like, um, I really cared about the characters, in the first book. It was that caring that drove me to read book two. That’s a good thing! This part of the story hit the ground running. If there were mistakes in the grammar or spelling I didn’t notice for trying to keep up with the action.

In a world of super-humans, being either sub-norm or just human can be down-right dangerous. Hence the name of the name of the series (Sub-normal). Though you see this in the first book, this second book throws it in your face.

My only problem with this book was that I was left LONGING for part three. I have tried to think through, as a writer, how I would handle this. Would it be better as one larger book broken into sections? Then I had to think about the author. Would her larger book make as much as three (or more) short stories? I, for one, was looking for something fast when I picked up book one, and then book two. But the waiting for the next installment, then trying to remember where we left off… I guess this is why a lot of people wait until they’ve gathered all the parts before reading it as a whole. I am sure this is a quandary for serial writers everywhere. Point is, I can’t wait to read the next in this series!

Review: Not the Norm


Not the Norm
Not the Norm by Becca J. Campbell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story-line and characters were interesting. The world was appropriately, futuristically, scary.

This is a very quick read. I suggest everyone read it as it is fun. Scary, but fun.

My only caveat with the writing were the body parts that take on lives of their own long before the part where it was supposed to happen. This happens at the beginning of the book and I had a hard time taking the story seriously. The hardest one to deal with was the vomiting of powers.

Sorry, I wanted to like it more.

I can’t argue with the facts. BUT… That’s all there is to this book. It is just a list of writing rules. There is much more information on web:  DailyWritingTips.com or  Writing.com or  GrammarGirl.com .     Sorry, but, meh.
