Review: Fourth and Long

Fourth and Long - Chris Scully

This was a short story about Eric, who has always regretting what happened during his senior prom in high school.

 

When he is at a high school reunion he gets hit on the head, only to wake up 20 years earlier, just in time for Prom Night..

 

I really liked the premise of this story. I LOVE time travel stories. Especially when one can make amends. But I was a bit disappointed in the execution of this one.

 

Yes, Eric goes back and does things differently, but there were so many unanswered questions about what happened before and even about what happened this time. I also was disappointed Eric

woke up in his own time again. Yes, things had changed, but he had no recollection of the past 20 years as they now happened with all the changes he made in the past. And he only now met Jake again. I don’t like separations, and this one was 20 freaking years!

(show spoiler)

 

 

Overall, it was a nice story, but a bit underdeveloped.

 

Oh, and for those of you who want to know. No sexy times. At all. There is one kiss and that's it. It did fit the story.
