Kirk Honeycutt’s “Nebraska” Should Be Read While Listening to Sade

In response to Kirk Honeycutt’s 1224‑word review of Nebraska on

By ,

Kirk Honeycutt’s latest work, “Nebraska,” is a quiet and composed reflection on the human condition and all that is left unsaid. Although the critic’s writing often comes across as dull, one will undoubtedly be pleased by the strong effort.

Honeycutt’s Nebraska is a success due to Honeycutt’s remarkable ability to summarize the story while always injecting the work with analysis. There is a constant flow of Honeycutt prose, and one will surely whisper out “It’s Honeycutt time.” One can feel the pain of the main character Woody as the critic recites lines of dialogue, and the effect works brilliantly. The critic seems to be saying, “Offer me your heart, and I’ll give you sweet, sweet emotion.” One may imagine the music of Sade filling their soul.

The flaws of Honeycutt’s Nebraska lie mainly within the writing. The critic always keeps the story moving along, but there are times when combinations of short sentences are used in all the wrong places. Fortunately, the work is so comprehensive that one surely won’t mind. Honeycutt has a story to tell, and he conveys life’s tales to the audience like the greatest rocking chair grandpa.

This piece is all about the mood, and Honeycutt often pauses to reflect on specific scenes to make sure the reader understands his points. It’s a gentle tactic that exudes warmth rather than forcing information on the reader. Character analysis is not mind-boggling in the work, but certainly more substantial than the average review.

Kirk Honeycutt’s Nebraska is a cool breeze that makes one feel special inside, but also reminds of the bitterness felt during colder days.
