Smashwords book reviews by Sarah Williams

  • A Thousand Lies: Lies Every Good American Must Believe on Feb. 18, 2010

    This book has sharp fingernails that peel back the wallpaper of your world view, despite your best efforts to keep the edges pasted down flat over the horror. It's disturbing, maddening, infuriating, and best avoided by those who wish to maintain the illusion.
  • The Nasty Little Writing Book: Longtime New York Publishing Insider Reveals Secrets Only Best-Selling Authors Know on Feb. 18, 2010

    This will offend everyone equally---from writers, to editors, to publishers, to agents---their oxen are all gored here. Couldn't happen to better folks.
  • Sisters Of Glass on Feb. 18, 2010

    Ever read a book that really takes you there? Not just tells you about it, but puts you right there where it's happening? This one does it. There's some techno that needs skipping and some flashbacks too, but the scenes are blood red meat. I liked it when he prayed in the middle of all those sisters. Sweet.
  • See Night Run on Feb. 18, 2010

    In the age of medical marijuana, here's a story about a drug cop who makes the ultimate mistake---he begins to question what he's doing, who he's hurting by enforcing the law. Loved seeing him squirm.
  • A Terrible Beauty: A Romance on Feb. 18, 2010

    School... everybody feels strongly about it. Teachers... we all remember good ones and awful ones. If you've ever taught you'll recognize a lot of what happens here.
  • Wolves in Sheep's Clothing: Liberalism - Formula for Failure on March 06, 2010

    Anyone who is watching knows that America is in decline. Why is she? and what can we do to stop it? This book describes the problems and offers the answers. I highly recommend it.
  • Khakhanate Book II The Crow on July 10, 2010

    What a story! What's so great about Lankenau's writing is that you feel like you saddle up with his heroes and ride with them. It's like you experience the Mongol America, you don't just read about it. If you liked book one, The Raven, you'll love The Crow.
  • Khakhanate Book I The Raven on July 10, 2010

    This is the unforgettable story of what might have been had Mongols conquered North America before it was discovered by Europeans. The narrator, The Raven, is eloquent in his descriptions of native peoples and civilizations. Read the first couple pages and you'll be drawn right into the story---and what an adventure it is.
  • Pacific Dream on July 18, 2010

    I read this account of a thru-hike from Mexico to Canada without putting it down any more than absolutely necessary. What a ride! The writer is a natural. It just flows. If you like adventure, you won't do better.
  • Understanding the Global Warming Hoax on July 18, 2010

    Global Warming: Questioning it is like questioning the papal teachings of during the Inquisition---heresy. For those still willing to examine the facts this book is useful. If you're a true believer you won't like it, so clamp your hands over your eyes and move on.
  • The Exodus According to G: A Unique View of the Biblical Story on Oct. 16, 2010

    A powerfully told retelling of the biblical tale of the Exodus through the point of view of a slave, this story really entertained me and kept me involved from the first page. A really great read.
  • Autobiography In Verse on Oct. 30, 2010

    I've never read a memoir in verse before and I didn't know what to expect, but it was very effective in conveying the attitudes, thoughts and feelings of the author. Kudos.
