really liked it
Read from July 06 to August 01, 2012

It starts with the cover of the book. I couldn't stop touching it. It was soft and smooth and almost supple. I realized soon after I began reading that I was feeling Trevor's leather shoes. At least, I like to think so.
I was offered this book as a free copy from the author himself. I had read his previous work, Clouded Rainbow, and found myself almost mesmerized by the world he brought to life. A Smudge of Gray didn't disappoint.
He writes in such a way that inanimate objects, like buildings and streets seem to take on a life of their own. This life always reflects the mind and mood of the character traveling through this world. The story is short but has impact. I'm only sorry it took me so long to get to it in my reading pile. And again, the ending didn't disappoint. I love that Sturak doesn't leave his stories with conventional or expected endings. I love that there are always questions left unanswered, and potential for more story.
