Smashwords book reviews by Ted Scott
- Every Last Mother's Child
on Dec. 31, 2012
This book is entertaining, but uninvolving, primarily due to the total lack of reasonably correct English grammar and the garbling of many common sayings in English. I was unable to finish reading it. After about 25% I could no longer continue reading while having to insert all the pronouns and rework the tenses of virtually every sentence. The story appears sound and interesting but the misuse of the English language and the lack of any proper editing makes it impossible to recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. As a space opera it is full of cliches and fun references that for me only enhance the presentation. Classic characters and well thought out strategies make it interesting and engaging to read. For those who don't like the simplicity try another genre, this is space opera in the classic manner. Can't wait for book 2!
- Elysium Part Two. In A Landscape
on Feb. 09, 2013
Just finished this one and looking forward to the finale of the trilogy. Excellent characterizations seem to be the hallmark of this author. The story is strong if a little too mysterious for me at times. The only thing I could criticize is the unrelenting vicious sadistic streak that runs strongly through almost every character in the book. It just makes it a little unreal for me, though given the circumstances of the book I suppose it could actually be realistic.
- Midge Fly and the End of The World

Excellent work! This was all about FUN and it succeeded on a gazillion levels. Excellent editting job too, definitely a much more professional presentation than the majority of
stuff we see. Anxiously awaiting Midge's next adventure!
- Mission Beyond The Stars: Book #1 of "Saga Of The Lost Worlds" by Neely and Dobbs
on March 08, 2013
If you like space opera on a grand scale this book is for you! Interesting and compelling story - I just finished it and will be buying part 2 ASAP!
- The Price Of Ascendance
on June 08, 2013
Great story, great characters, exciting technology, and horror elements jammed into an action-packed package. On top of that, a TRUE hero with true human qualities and concern for the effect of his actions on others, even the bad guys. Refreshing and much better than the average novel/movie where the good guys can't be distinguished from the bad guys any more. Find a publisher!

Great fun! As an I.T. professional and an erstwhile musician I found the entire piece hilarious from beginning to end. Thanks and I am looking forward to more !
