Why do I love this story? Quite simply, it makes me laugh out loud! Ethan is hilarious and outrageous. Actually, so is Mutt, but in a different and more non-verbal kind of way. I also find his ongoing problem with the Voice entity and the implications of their relationship to be quite thought-provoking.
Ethan's character is vivid and clearly defined. The guy just jumps off the page. Imagine Dee if he was down and out and had no Ryo, no cop-authority, and limited social skills.
Naomi posts once a week, usually on Mondays. She's currently up to chapter 4. I tell you, I start looking forward to this story on Sundays. Whenever I start thinking "Aw rats, tomorrow is Monday and I have to go back to work", the feeling is mitigated by remembering that I have another chapter of Undertow to look forward to! Go check it out. I guarantee that Ethan and Mutt will make you laugh.
