Smashwords book reviews by Donna Karr

  • Times of Trouble: A Christian End Times Thriller (Book 2) on April 21, 2012
    (no rating)
    I enjoyed this book. However, I had a hard time with the dates in the book for believability. This book was written in 2012. The author has placed the dates that the health care bill became effective in the mid 2010's & the second great depression from 2008 to 2016. I had a hard time believing all the restrictions placed by the government on the citizens. This is due to the fact the that I have "lived" thru the period of time (2008 to 2012) referred to in the book. Would have been more believable if author had used dates set farther in the future. Overall, it was a very intriguing story of the end to times and I will most likely read it again. Thank you for this book.

    I agree with the review done by Dorthy Darrow. The beautiful cover is what drew me to the book. The story itself was " flat" & lacked dimension for me as well. Perhaps this was written for a younger reader in mind ( 10 to 11 year old).

    I enjoy a good book, unfortunately, I can only say I enjoyed the last story in this book. I realize that this is a collection of 5 short stories, however, the other 4 stories did not hold my attention. I feel they were not as well written as the last story. The first 4 stories made me feel as if a high schooler or college student ( bringing writer) had written them. The last story made me feel as thou I was actually a part of the story. This is what a well written author has the ability to do.

    I was REALLY looking forward to reading this book after reading the description of the book & other book reviews. I found that I was NOT able to read this book due to the excessive vulgar language. I found it revolting that this author had the nerve to quote scripture from the Bible ( Exodus 11:1) to open the book and then proceed to use God's, Jesus' & Christ's name repeatedly as curse words. I was SO MAD because I had actually gotten into the story good & then all this UN-NESSACARY vulgar language beings. I tried several times to go back to read this book, but I just can't. This author needs to understand that he is actually taking away from the story by using this type of language. You don't need a "shock factor" like this. If I had the "paper" version of the book, I would have taken a white out pen to all this language & then I could have read the book. Perhaps this author should think about publishing this novel without this vulgar language so "us people" who enjoy a good book for the quality of the story could enjoy it.
