Smashwords book reviews by Christopher Thompson

  • Shades of Sin on May 25, 2011

    I just got finished reading Shades of Sin and quite enjoyed it. Chevelle was a nice break from the standard male vampire (although, technically, she was not a full vamp) and - in many spots - definitely not a damsel in distress. The characters held my interest, as did the plot. I found that the ending (no spoilers here) was done in such a way to leave me satisfied as both a 'definitive end' to the story as well as leaving things 'open' enough for a sequel, the latter of which is the path that I am hoping the Ms. Forsythe chooses. Moreover, this book brings back the vampire canon of old with some unique twists that will not likely have vampire enthusiasts disappointed. All in all, it was a very good read and I would recommend this to friends and family as a book well worth the asking price.
  • Barbary Point on June 15, 2011

    Wow. When I finished the last page of Barbary Point, I knew that I would be writing an immediate review but, for the longest time after finishing, the word 'wow' was the only thing to come to mind to describe this book. I am not a ordinarily a romance reader, my tastes lying in other genres, nor am I an avid fisherman. Before reading Barbary Point, I had never visited Wisconsin, in fact, but through Alan's wonderful prose, I feel that I have and, as I pointed out to him mid-read, about the only 'bad' thing that I could see about his book is the desire it stirred up within me to uproot my family and move up there to live out the remainder of my years in the place that he had so vividly described. And the characters...excellently drawn up and executed, including that of her late father who is only spoken of in the book by others. All of his characters are so vivid and real that to describe my favorite things about each would lead to massive spoilers about this book. I will say, though, that for a work of fiction, this book reads like a heartwarming biography. It makes me wish that I could track down the main character online to take her on as a friend, to not only hear more of her thoughts and memories about the events in the book, but to share with her the things about my own life which made me relate so closely to her. The plot was very nicely executed, the subplots intertwining so closely and neatly that I could picture Alan standing behind my chair, a rod and reel in his hands as he sank a hook into my lip and drew me in; Mitch, Kelly's father, Ol' Greenback, and more each a gentle tug as Alan reeled me in toward the last page. I highly recommend this book to not only fans of romance novels, but fans of reading as a whole. You will NOT be disappointed in Barbary Point.
  • The Poet and Other Inspired Words on Sep. 02, 2011

    Reading the poetry contained within Scott Smothers' "The Poet and Other Inspired Words" took me along with him through strolls down memory lane, walks through current pain, and a side trip into the inane. His heartfelt poetry concerning those who have passed on eulogizes those gone in a beautiful way, giving the reader a glimpse into the lives of both the passed and the survivor that they left behind and the sentiment is deep for both man and animal alike showing that the poet not only loves, but loves deeply and purely. I loved all of the poems as I read them, many for deeply personal reasons, but my favorite piece has got to be "The Burden" as it shows hope for anyone and everyone as they pass from the carefree indestructibility of youth into the almost inevitable faltering which comes with aging, his words echoing the same spirit that Dylan Thomas heralded as he urged readers to rage against the dying of the light. Overall, I would recommend this book to readers of all ages. Mr. Smothers has a unique, and beautiful voice.
