I enjoyed "Scouting for Lucy". I thought it was a very clever and entertaining slice of life, depicting the dating process in contemporary society. The author is highly skilled at using imagery and other details to create a vivid atmosphere and enhance characterizations. I was impressed by what the author was able to do in the span of so short a piece. I look forward to reading more of A J Chamberlain's work in the future.
Very, very short novel (6 pages)
It's written as a first person account, which is always awkward to give insights into the narrator as a real person; I can't say it was really successful.
The story deals with the dating world, in a quite superficial way, mostly about how correctly reading appearances. No real interaction between the characters. We do not learn anything personal about them.
