Smashwords book reviews by John Peters

  • Fugue on May 27, 2011

    Fugue is based on an interesting concept--a woman is programmed with a new personality to become an assassin, but the original host personality battles to reemerge and fight the evildoers who have purchased her body. However, the story lacks punch, and "conversations" between the personalities are hard to follow (or are uninteresting) at times. It's about 80 pages on my e-reader, and it was very slow reading until a bit more than halfway through it, when it started to pick up a bit of pace with some nice action scenes. The quality of the writing is pretty good, though, and the price is right!
  • The Night Walk Men on May 29, 2011

    Very well-written story, although more literary than thriller/suspense. The style is almost biblical at times. I found myself skipping a lot.
  • The Jinx on June 11, 2011

    Fascinating read. Starts a little slow but picks up fast. Couldn't put it down after about 100 pages. Takes you to the brink of political reality and almost has you believing anything is possible.
