Synaesthesia Magazine Americana - Page 58

Adam Marek:

In 'Watching', we meet a mysterious first person narrator and immediately wonder who it is and what they want with the young boy who is the object of their fascination. I was kept guessing throughout the story, the writer wrong-footing me several times before the end. When you keep a reader dangling like that, you've got to make sure the reveal at the end is unexpected and satisfying, and in this story, it most definitely was.
