OUCH! Wow, what a difference here...I like how you did the layout for this-it is creative and especially the character of the son. He comes through, the bitterness the confusion and the general sort of sadness. You did very well showing this all through dialouge-I'm impressed! ^_^

This is a sad story. Divorce is so prevalent today and the children are always the victims that suffer--often silently. I liked the straight forward approach of the short dialogs, which gave the reader insight who the dad was and how the son felt. Creative & interesting!
This was written in a very creative way, and caught my attention the whole way through. Well done!

This is extremely well done. There was a time not so long ago when a divorce almost always meant a disappearing father - it was supposed to be better for the children. This captures the essence of feelings on many sides.

Wow! How unusual and creative! I was caught up in the story as well as the format! Very good job! Painful, though.

Very innovative. One felt for the son, even when he said "I never knew him". What he did know really hurt him.
