I'm overwhelmed by the number of nice comments I've gotten on The Devil Wears Scrubs. But there have been a few persistent negative comments I've gotten on Amazon that I wish to address here:
1) It's too short
That's legitimate. If I had it to do over again, I would have definitely written an epilogue.
2) Alyssa, the evil resident, is too much of a stereotype
Yes, except nearly everything she did was actually done to me by a particular resident. Maybe there's a reason things are stereotypes, because they're real.
3) We never find out why Alyssa doesn't like Jane
Hmm. How many times in your life has someone been a jerk to you, and you found out it was because, like, you reminded them of their great-aunt, who never believed in them. Most of the time when someone doesn't like you, there's no real good reason and you never ever find out why it is. I refuse to come up with some contrived reason that didn't feel real to me.
