Smashwords book reviews by Gavin Lipscombe

  • Peril: A Ger Mayes Thriller on Nov. 06, 2011

    A slow and slightly confusing start, but it keeps your interest, then the book explodes into one you can't put down. It twists and turns like a twisty turny thing. A fantastic read, one of those rare books that keeps you guessing.
  • The Meyersco Helix on Nov. 06, 2011

    A techno thriller, well written and worth a read. Some ideas are a bit far fetched and I found myself getting slightly annoyed with some parts of the book, and some of the jumping around in the timeline. However, overall I enjoyed the story it was well written and I kept turning pages eager to continue the story.
  • Small Magic: Collected Short Stories on Nov. 19, 2011

    This was my first attempt at reading flash fiction and I am so frustrated! Aaron has so much potential as a writer, his style and the some of the ideas in this work are really good. But, I just felt left out to dry in all of the stories. They felt like, very short, passages from a longer work leaving me wanting more but then so let down that the story just stopped, or it seemed to start mid story. If you enjoy reading small parts of stories then it's worth a try! The potential seen in the writing means I will probably try some of his other work.
  • Fresh Flesh on Nov. 21, 2011

    Although confusing at the start, time and place jumps that can be difficult to follow, the writing kept my interest enough to persevere. As the situation becomes clearer it turns into a really enjoyable read, although there are some parts that I felt could have been improved for continuity. The first meeting with Seth and his eyes is truly outstanding and shows the calibre of writing that Todd can produce. Left questioning the ending with the dirt, was it really needed? Overall a thoroughly enjoyable book that is worth a read.
  • No Time for Games & Other Humor Stories on Dec. 07, 2011

    A nice writing style but that's all. There is no content to the stories, they start and then nothing really happens. I can't see any point to this book.
  • Photographic Detonation & Other Tales on Dec. 09, 2011

    I love a good horror tale. It's a shame the writing doesn't live up to the ideas. The story ideas have potential but the writing failed to make them come alive. It seems as though the author is trying to pad out the stories with excess words, rather than quality ones, as though she is trying to reach a word count.
