    Pleased to Recommend This AnthologyI thoroughly enjoyed the dozen short stories in this collection. Each is of a length that can be digested in one sitting with the satisfaction of being fulfilled at the end, never left hanging. The author reveals each of the stories so it is unique and easily discernible from the others. I appreciated being able to read each without having the feeling of repetition. Well done Mr. Shoultz.Shoultz’s writing style draws the reader in during the first paragraph o [...]

    First, I want to specify that I usually don't give a second look at short stories because they end too fast. I had never considered buying one before this one. However, I have read a few novels from Mr. Shoultz and since I liked what I had read, I decided to give it a try. Besides, it was also for a good cause (supporting NC animal shelters). I have never reviewed a book of short stories. I don't know how to proceed. They are short so I can't mention anything for fear of spoilers so I will just [...]

    As I write this little review, I must ponder about my experience. I have read more wonderful written pieces that I am privileged to read and learn from different writing styles. This book takes a special place in my heart, mostly because it is the best written piece that I've read since joining this website.D.R. Shoultz is no doubt a very talented writer. He plays on your emotions as if you are interwoven with the story's characters, feeling the despair and anguish, and gladness and hope. Actua [...]

    An amazing collection of brilliant short stories! I have always loved short stories and as an English teacher, find their length and quick impact to be wonderful in the classroom. Some of the stories contained in this fine collection of works by D.R. Shoultz are worthy of the classroom and I plan to use the stories ‘A Christmas Found,' a delightful story of hope and fate for a middle-aged couple, ‘Another Day,' a Cohen Brothers’ type of story that makes one cherish what we have, and ‘Thr [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed this group of short stories. They encompassed a variety of themes, excellently told. I particularly enjoyed "A Christmas Found" and "Another Day". I hope this author - D.R. Scoultz gets some prime recognition for his writing -- his style and his originality.

    What a collection of stories! Some were wildly imaginative while others were heartfelt. They were all, however, very enjoyable. Shoultz writes on a variety of different topics, each equally well. I was especially enchanted with the dog based stories. They were told from their POV but remained entirely realistic. I don’t think I’ve had my emotions engaged in so many different ways in such a short period of time. I love Shoultz’s writing style. It’s so polished and straightforward. I find [...]

    D.R. Shoultz' first short story collection is right up my alley since I'm one of those readers with a short attention span. I love the instant gratification of reading a story from beginning to end in about fifteen minutes. Shoultz has a gift for tugging at your heart strings without sounding trite. In "Abandoned," he paints a vivid, heart-racing description of the many dangers threatening an abandoned dog and her puppies. I'm not a pet owner, but "Abandoned" and two other dog stories ("Through [...]

    I love short stories. I love diversity in short stories. I read lots of full length novels but love sort stories using my Kindle Fire audio for short commutes, or reading at Starbucks before work, or reading during lunch. I find them a refreshing way to get my mind off whatever is happening in the day. D.R. Shoultz has put together an extremely well-written set of short stories that keep you going from one to another. They vary from Wall Street stories to a dog story (my fav even though it's sad [...]

    From the author, D.R. Shoultz. IT GOES ON is a collection of stories written over a period of 18 months. I intended to provide something for everyone in this 12-story collection: suspense, action, romance, and even a couple stories with pets as the protagonists. Profits from the sale of IT GOES ON will go to benefit animal shelters in North Carolina. This is the first time I combined my passion for writing with my love of animals.

    Nurse911: One thing we can be certain in life, is that It Goes On. That is certainly the case for our most recent patient by DR Shoultz. Structured as a variety of short stories, it details the lives of an assortment of characters from their own perspective as they deal with situations ending in tragedy or triumph. Sorting through our patient's multiple endings as they continued to go through the school of hard knocks was truly a testament to my career as a Nursing professional. Tragedy was the [...]

    A very enjoyable read. Each story quickly drew me in and kept my interest all the way to the end.I like the fact that the stories deal with normal everyday life are not preposterous situations where we must suspend reality. In my mind, almost all the stories could have potentially have happened, and the conclusions left me with a satisfying feeling. I also liked that the author did not use excessive bad language or violence.The author has a very smooth writing style that adds a layer of eloquenc [...]

    A very colorful book with a little of everything thrown your way to whet the appetite. Short stories are my thing, especially having such a busy lifestyle. Each one was very different to the next from heart ache to endearing, and each with unpredictable endings. My favorite one was 'A Christmas Friend' which I have to admit that I read first as I love all things Christmas and it's my favorite time of year so couldn't resist. My other favorite was 'Class Reunion'.Each story had realism with shock [...]

    I received this book for free from Good Reads First Reads. Thank you! I enjoy short story collections because in a few pages a writer can give you a satisfying mystery, drama or comedy, sometimes with a twist on human nature. "It Goes On" is a quick, light read of several basic stories about average people experiencing ups and downs in their lives. Two stories are told from the point of view of a dog. My favorite is "Something for Nothing". A story of 2 people behaving badly. I was surprised at [...]

    I've read one of D.R. Shoultz's novels and thought I'd give his short stories a try. Boy, am I glad I did. I particularly liked his stories that included pets. "Abandoned" had me in tears several times, and so did "A Christmas Found." "Something for Nothing", a story about a couple stealing pension funds from their aunt, was a little twisted, but it definitely was dramatic and I didn't anticipate the shocking ending.All in all, a good collection of stories and well worth the price. There is some [...]

    There are many good things about this collection of short stories. I liked the ease with which each one was told. I was truly moved by several of them. D.R. Schoultz is clearly an animal lover with the ability to put himself in their position. His stories share life lessons without being preachy. I enjoyed learning names and descriptions, made up or real, of states and towns in parts of the country I will probably never travel. If you like short stories, I recommend It Goes On by D.L. Scoultz.


    Sara Claridge

    Each story is completely different. Sometimes there’s a twist in the end, sometimes it’s heart-warming or makes you pause for a moment and think, but you never know which way it’s going to be until that final sentence. The author might say that the end is only 20 minutes away, but the trouble is I always enjoyed the previously story so much I start to read the next one. That just while I drink a cup of tea moment turns into a much longer chunk of time. My favourite story was the one with t [...]

    surprisingly goodI have never been a fan of short stories, however after reading a review of this book by a English teacher and his reasons for liking short stories, I thought why not. I am so glad I took the time to read this collection.Every single story is about real life without any fantasy. Some have happy endings and others pain and suffering. Every one of these stories will move you emotionally. I might just b become a fan of short stories!


    Juli Savage

    Great short story book, easy to read, some brilliant little stories with twists at each ending


    Scott Spotson

    Several of these stories are like the Wheel of Fortune (the legend, not the game show). You know, one moment, you're up, and the next, you're down. Spin the wheel, and find the next victim. I very much enjoyed all the stories, each story has a twist or a moral, or both. I can tell the author really, really loves dogs, as a dog would be the main character in a heart-rendering story. The only story I struggled with was A Costly Legacy. It seemed that the main character in that story was doomed, an [...]


    Denis Hachey

    This is a truly enjoyable collection of 12 short stories, each one so different from the other, but all of them are well thought out and well written. Some of them make you think and others fill you with emotion which shows that the author has done a great job job. Being short stories, you can just pick up the book and read one whenever you have fifteen minutes to spare. I almost wished some of the stories were longer as I found I was so immersed into the characters. All in all an extremely sati [...]

    This book contains many deep meaning stories. One could make you smile of happiness. One could make your heartache. One could give you a hope to go on with life. I would recommend it to everyone.
