Smashwords book reviews by melissa lujan

  • This Time on April 14, 2011

    A very Ricardian look at Richard III as a person and not just as a historical figure and how he might react to suddenly being thrust into 21st century American life. It was a fairly quick read as it was only a couple hundred pages (in eBook form). There was just something about the book that I couldn't quite get into, and I think it was the CONSTANT eating and talking about food, there was at least one reference every couple pages if not more. I found the initial plot to be intriguing, and the time travel aspect did not bother me as much as I thought it might (time travel is one of my least favorite plot devices). I am awaiting the sequel and I am hopeful it will pick up where This Time left off. I would give the book 3.5 stars as 3 seems too few yet 4 seems to many, unfortunately I don't have that option and thusly I will be giving it 3. * I have a slight amendment to m review: I bought and read this book because I spoke with the author and she was going to send me a review copy of the book that is the sequel, however after reading my review of the first book, she send me an email stating she didn't agree with my review and therefore would not be sending me the copy. I am not going to change the content of my review or my rating because that isn't fair to the book, but I just thought others should know if they ever deal with this author.
