Reviews for IRIS
CharlesTheBold chapter 2 . 3/17/2012
I know the story's over, but are you going to tell somewhere what became of Iris? At the end she has a number of misimpressions, or at least bad prophecies of the future: that Glynis is a promising girl, that Joan is crazy (though perhaps because of illness), that Adam has slept with Joan, that Friedmann is brainy but coarse. Did she learn better?

Interesting to hear from Iris's point of view, particularly because of things she doesn't say. She never articulates why she prefers her uncle as a father figure in spite of his shady past - he never hit IRIS, and she never saw him intimate with her mother, so it's easier to idealize him. She may be idealizing Adam as well, because he doesn't seem to actually talk to her during the story, and she rejects the boys she does have experience with.
