Bruce's Reads


Yoikes - James  Field The short story, Yoikes, by James Field struck me as something like a mix of "Dumb and Dumber" meets "The Days of Camelot." Here you have 2 beefy bros who are dimmer than a 10 watt light bulb, along with their Alsatians (German Shepherd types--I had to look that one up), who get sucked back in time because of their goofy inclinations. What follows is a fast-reading, humorous romp of a tale, that hopefully means they don't mess up their own futures (or anyone else they know), if and when they come back.

I liked the story a lot, but felt no sense of place or time at the very beginning. That made it harder to immerse myself into, but once I figured it out, everything locked into place (I saw the cover and supposed it began way back when, but it didn't.) Some minimal descriptions would definitely help enhance this funny tale.

I received a copy of this story in exchange for my honest review and I rate it as four stars.
