Reviews for The Scar on my Back Tells All
Selective scifi junkie chapter 1 . 11/29/2014
This is good. There is a lot of clever word play in here, using Misery as a proper noun to refer to Zaroc (can't remember how to spell that off the top of my head, it's been a while), and Thorn as a proper noun to refer to the dragon... The stanza about Murtagh hating that he looks like Morzan works very well. I've explored that in some unpublished stuff, but not this well.
I just started scrolling down your page, there's a lot of your stuff which will be over my head, I don't know Inkheart that well and the Simarillion is on my to-read list.

Another well-written poem. I didn't catch any errors, so you did well there.

I had a feeling, as a read through your poem, that Murtagh was speaking to Eragon. It seems I was right, even after I finished it. I can tell Murtagh's emotions in this poem, and how he felt being the lesser of the two.

This was well done. I enjoyed reading this poem.

Of course I like your poetry! Murtagh is awsome! Maybe you should write something about phantom of the opera?

It's been so long since I've cracked open one of the Inheritance novels but I have to say that you've brought the magic flooding back.

I love the imagery and texture that you've woven into this. I was rather surprised at how much I enjoyed it because I'm normally not much of a poetry person. I think that my favourite part was when he was remembering his parents and how that transitioned into feelings toward his brother.

This was a really lovely read. Thanks so much for sharing and well done!

Wow! This is really good! It flows very well, and it rhymes! I really don't like blank verse very much. nice job.

Wow...this was definitly Murtagh. You captured his personality, pain, and conflict perfectly. This is going in my favorites.

Wow, this poem really shows what Murtagh's mind must be like-he always did seem a bit good poem, I liked it a lot!

(And I can't wait 'til YOU Return to the Inkworld! I still like your stories there the best!)
InkWeaverabc chapter 1 . 9/11/2011
Wow, that was really good! i love the confusion of anger and grief you have here: it captures Murtagh really well, as I think that he is a very confused person inside.

I wish I had more to say, but I'm gonna end with: Great work! XD
