Re: The Tenth Generation by iebanehita(m): 10:23am On Jan 22, 2013
@Frank.. I jt finishd Part 1: The Covenant. I loved evry bit of it. But jt 2point out sum errors in it.

1. Check out for typos error. There's a lot of em,

2. The Idiom; 'You cannot eat ur cake n have it is wrong',,, The correct one is 'You cannot have ur cake and eat it.'

3At a point in the story, ur made mentioned of the great chief priest exclaimed: ''Oh God''.. For sum1 who is a loyal worshipper of alaogbaga mentioning God wit a capital 'G??', Gues that was an error.

4. You changed d name of Chika to Chike in d story, wen d chiefpriest was telling d messenger of d covenant shared by d bloods of both brothers and d alaogbaga.

5.When describing d death of Mazi Madu n Mazi Nduka, you could have used expressions made by d villagers like:

''Eeeeewwwwwoooo!!'',,,,considering its an ibo setting.

Thumbs up for d story.

Re: The Tenth Generation by Amynamerica: 1:13pm On Jan 23, 2013
I had a wonderful time reading this novel. Nice work. Had to stay up part of the night reading. Just work on your use of homophones (i.e same pronunciation but different spellings) e.g' rip' should be used instead of 'reap' ('rip apart' not 'reap apart') etc.

Have to read Cyber Lover. I think it'll be good.

Re: The Tenth Generation by niyimat(m): 8:17pm On Jan 25, 2013
@iebanehita, nice points. I just checked wikipeadia now, I too never knew that the formal rendering of this proverb/idiom is not correct but 'You can't have your cake and eat it'. You can't both possess your cake and eat it. i.e you can't do two incompatible things at the same time.

@ Frank, this is fascinating, I was captivated by your novel since saturday, I finished today.

The first part was very sharp and straight to the point and that was what made a first time reader to get glued to it. By the time I got to part two, you slowed down a little bit and that was perfect, you brought out all the details. When I got to the third part, you released all the adrenalin in me. Meeeeen! Frank, you no go kill persson so.

The only part am not too sure of is when you said clara put on the CD at the second part (1980). I doubt if there was CD in nigeria as at then.

Please get us informed when you publish this, my unborn child must read through this simple method of writing English.

Thanks

Thank u very very much for ur comment. I am definitely going to take note of the CD in 1980 era and make necessary adjustment.

You guys are the bomb and I believe with ur comments and error indications, we all will work together in making this story get published as perfect as possible.

Ur comments have made me more motivated to ensure this get publishd as soon as possible. Thanks and pls keep d comments coming.
Re: The Tenth Generation by jaspyroman: 10:18am On Jan 26, 2013
Hey frank, nice reviews coming from amateur critics; really gives an inkling of what to expect when the book(s) go to print. I believe 10th gen has great potential, u just need a v.good editor. Literary acclaim is surely on the horizon and maybe even $$$$...
Re: The Tenth Generation by jslimz: 12:22am On Jan 30, 2013
Frank you got me spell bound. I felt all your characters. You did great with Rogers, and i was on edge all through.

This story is just so good.
Thanks so much for keeping me thrilled from start to finish. But the story needs proof reading, then please get it published.

Your good Frank, i'm expecting another if your up to it.
