The story is building, his characters have depth, and his use of creative fonts and capitalization is interesting. For instance, when someone is shouting, he uses all caps–like they do in email and blogs. There are multiple POV–but he seems to pull it off. More to come.
Verbs are GOOD things. The stronger, the better. It’s adverbs you want to avoid.
But I wouldn’t want to read a book where the character shouts in caps, either. If you need caps to show a character is shouting, you have a problem.
