Smashwords book reviews by Lynette Ferreira

  • 2012 on March 11, 2011

    Interesting end. I see your implied suggestion at how fickle humans are and that in 5,000 years people will be making movies and predictions of the next great disaster. Since I can remember the end has been nigh!
  • Song For A Friend on March 11, 2011

    Excellent. Says everything in such a few words.
  • Her on March 11, 2011

    I love your cover. Your story was poignant and full of emotion and feeling, although I do not know why it must always be a happy ending. I felt it would have done the story more justice if she did not come back. I enjoyed it though.
  • Voiceless on June 10, 2011

    This story needed to be told, and aptly named Voiceless. I like the fact that the author is donating portions of the sales to the Children Without A Voice Foundation. Once I started reading, I could not stop.
  • Unforgiven Pleasure on June 14, 2011

    Sorting through my Kindle, I came upon this story again. Reading it a second time, I enjoyed it more. It is perfect, and once again the end was sweet. There is no doubt that I would have continued reading if it was longer. I loved the chemistry between them.
  • The games we play on June 14, 2011

    Excellent!!
  • Big Black Shiny Boots on June 14, 2011

    Read it again, enjoyed it again. Made me smile. Very well written!!
  • Heart Spell on June 14, 2011

    I found it very original and thoroughly enjoyable!!
  • Two Years, Nine Tears on Aug. 13, 2011

    I am not a big poem reader, but I really enjoyed your poems, especially Snowflakes in July.
  • Grey on Aug. 26, 2011

    A young woman and boy meet. He falls in love and she leaves. Years later they meet again - both old. Was an interesting read and well described.
  • Made For You on Feb. 27, 2012

    I enjoyed reading your story. Maybe because I am also from Africa I did not get confused and I understood your symbolism. In particular I loved the following line: 'The kind of pain that makes the heart writhe, the soul hopeless and devours beauty'
  • I Find Trouble on May 28, 2012

    I could so easily relate to everything he said and felt. Often I also have so many things to say and do when I see other people go against the grain of society, but sadly fear also holds me back.
  • Another Bookstore on Sep. 10, 2014

    I liked it! I enjoyed reading this well written short story and found it to be an interesting concept - to be truthful, the idea of a book with his life story already printed and published gave me goose bumps. Sadly though when the person in the book realized that each person is doing the same thing, he did not try to better himself, but remained resigned to his fate. The end left me feeling a little bit sad.
  • Shorts on Sep. 10, 2014

    I enjoyed all three 'stories'. You have a way with words that is not complicated and makes it easy to read.
