Smashwords book reviews by Donald H Sullivan

  • Veteran of a Thousand Battles on Sep. 07, 2012

    As a reader, I thought it was a good, well written story. I was held throughout the story, but was disappointed with the ending. But that's just me; I like stories with a good ending where everything is wrapped up. As a writer, I thought the exposition was a bit too much and and there should have been a little more show and less tell. (I know the last sentence sounds more like a writer's workshop critique than a review, and I'll not give stars based on that criteria.)
  • The Dead Celebrity Space Corps on Sep. 07, 2012

    I found this to be an enjoyable read, which gave me more than a few good chuckles. Not only entertaining, but also informative (I've always wondered what happened to those celebrities who went before their time.) Imaginative and well written.
  • Natural on Sep. 07, 2012

    A very original and imaginative story. It is well written and a very enjoyable read. Would fruit from the belly button most likely be navel oranges? A good story.
  • Welcome To New York on Sep. 07, 2012

    I'm a bit of a sucker for "abandoned Earth" stories. I found this one a good read. The plot is original, and could be the basis for a longer story, a novella or maybe even a novel. Aside from a couple of typos, it's very well written.
  • Ronnie and Me on Sep. 09, 2012

    A nice little human interest story (or should that be equine interest?) As an animal lover, I found it interesting I could identify with Al, as I see my self a little like him. Very well written, but why the sudden change in point of view, from first person to third person, in the update? In my opinion, it should have remained first person. All in all, though, a very good read.
  • Awake on Sep. 10, 2012

    The story held me until the end, but when I reached the end I was somewhat disappointed. This story very much reminded me of some of A E van Vogt's science fiction works. I kind of expected Jack to be influenced by an alien or some sort of supernatural being. But all things considered, I'd rate it as a well written and gripping story.
  • Straight on Sep. 11, 2012

    Great imagery; I could visualize all the scenes. Having written a story where a dog was the main protag, I could identify with a horse as first person (or should that be first equine?) When I reached the end, my first thought was that the story went nowhere, and the reader was left dangling. But then I saw the story. As I saw it the cowboy, after being jilted, went off the deep end, and set out to show his ex lover what a great guy she had lost. But even a deranged mind would realize that roping in the sun was a preposterous idea. Subconsciously, he was he was just determined to do himself in to "show" her. Well, anyhow that's how I saw it. It was an entertaining read.
  • For Whom the Tinker Toils on Sep. 16, 2012

    Nice short story, well told and well written. We have a backward 18th century village in a far future world, where there are wondrous inventions and machines. It would have been better, I think, if the reader was given an explanation as to why such a village existed in the far future. But the story moved at a good pace with enough action and adventure to hold the reader's interest.
