    1. Tiptoe – vacuous and pretentious, but the writing’s goodI’d like to thank Kit O’Conor for his hard work and commitment to this worthwhile endeavor.I’m a traditionalist. When I write, when I facilitate writing workshops, and when I critique I’m looking for the basics - goal, motivation and conflict to establish the story. I like it right near the beginning and associated with a strong, sympathetic protagonist. That let’s me know what the story is about - what the protagonist wants, [...]

    2. What I liked:Oddly fulfilled expectations: I got this book because I liked the blurb, a blurb which led me to expect a story that was both surreal and enchanting. It isn’t. I spent the first half of the book wondering if I’d been deceived but what this book does is convince you that the illusion is reality to a point where, even after you are aware of the illusion, it’s hard to believe that it isn’t the reality.Haunting: This story insists on lurking in the back of my mind. It perplexes [...]

    3. "Tiptoe" which I won through /First Reads is a strange tale with a vague storyline that revolves around distinctively complex characters. The story begins with Roan a forty year old man who lives in a dream world performing as a professional statue and dressed like a Knight. It's not clear whether his wife left him or he killed her, but he's alone, delusional and suffers nightmares. In the urban decadence of the city also lives Milo Blakely, a smug, depressed and restless young man lost in the b [...]

    4. This really surprised me. Follows a series of characters that we are uncertain from the set-up the level of interconnectivity between. Each moves through their own seemingly self-contained vignette until some themes overlap and a nice shifting in perspective occurs.There is a little bit of quirk and this is incorporated effectively. Included are some nicely poetic asides that are genuinely funny and absurd. The settings meet up with the contemporary urban feeling, from barren waste ground to run [...]

    5. The story floated in and out of reality not knowing actuality or so it seems. Tiptoe drug of choice? Can it be drug induce, mind games or just plain ludicrous. Ahh . . . The thrill of this story kept me guessing and complex as it seems I needed to know. The characters were just as off kilter as the dream induce scenes played out but I still don't know if it was a dream. I found it intriguing downright exciting to say the least. Of course the ending, well let's say 'nothing' I am stumped. You cho [...]

    6. I received a free download of this book from Story Cartel, thank you!This book was somewhat entertaining for me. The chapters were well-written, and each individual chapter maintained my interest while I was reading it. The overall book as a whole, however, was very confusing. There were some vague connections that started to explain the relationships between the characters, and there was plenty of conflict in the story, but there was no resolution to anything. The book just ends.Many people lik [...]

    7. Milo Blakely enjoys dream journaling. Not that it makes a whole lot of sense though. Best case scenario he struggles with his issues. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written very bizarre mystical book. It wasn’t very easy for me to read/follow [...]

    8. This is a strange book with a meandering plot that relates directly to the broken and lost characters it entwines. The overall topic was confusing and yet somehow engaging and addictive, much like the book’s drug of choice. The entire thing teetered on the edge of reality and allows those who want to look for it some pause for thought.

    9. I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.This book is definitely different from everything else I have read. It has, as mentioned by other reviews, broken and lost characters. It manages to keep your interest high throughout the whole book and makes you create a twisted scenario in your mind. If you are looking for a different book, you should really read it.

    10. I won this book through a giveaway. Tiptoe was well written, the characters were great and it switched nicely between the different points of view and the story kept you reading until the end. I found Tiptoe to be thought-provoking but rather strange. The story leaves everything open to interpretation with multiple endings, leaving you to puzzle over what was going on and what was real or not. If you like books with a definite story line and with endings that don't leave you with more questions [...]

    11. I got my copy from Storycartel. I dropped the book quite early. I just couldn't relate to the characters random behavior (maybe later on there would be some explanation) and because of that they didn't really convince me. Maybe later I will give it another change.
