Smashwords book reviews by Elizabeth Rowan Keith

  • Hidden Behind Words on June 06, 2012

    This is some of the best poetry I have ever read. Whether it is through skillfully woven metaphor or the path of an arrow reaching its' mark, these works lead to the core of a genuine individual who has intelligently and thoughtfully examined what it is to be an honest human. Done with lilt and laughter, tears and troubles, this is a book worth reading.
  • The Insignificance of Being a Spy... on Nov. 06, 2012

    An excellent read. This is a story full of twists and turns through a tightly-woven plot that unfolds in a series of captivating events. Everyone is hiding something, even if it is only to protect their own vulnerability. The characters are so deeply developed that they seem entirely real. This book held my attention from beginning to end. Highly recommended.
  • The Builders' Report on Nov. 06, 2012

    These characters are easy to know and appreciate in a comfortable story that is pleasant to read. The tale and the people in it could easily be real. A story worth reading.
  • The Boy Died In Vietnam on Nov. 07, 2012

    How well I remember this era, and the difficulties that came from it. This book is a must read for anyone touched by the Vietnam generation. It contains an honest account of the effects of that war on not only military personnel, but also on those of us who have been in relationships with them. Don Bick's descriptions of Post Traumatic Stress symptoms would be helpful to anyone who comes through intensely traumatic times. I applaud Don Bick's courage to heal. Than you, Don, for writing this book. I highly recommend it.
  • Barnaby's Shorts (Volume One) on Dec. 07, 2012

    These are not the first stories I've read by Barnaby Wilde. They will not be the last. Each one has been a pleasure. Once I began this collection I did not want to stop. Highly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
  • September Story on Dec. 10, 2012

    A story of the healing qualities of love. Told through marvelous use of dialogue, this tale is delivered at a pace that allows the reader to think, feel, and reflect. There is a great deal of comfort in this book.
  • How to Dance Naked in the Moonlight on Dec. 23, 2012

    The wonder, wisdom, and wit in the tradition of the Celtic Bard is not lost. It is here in this thoughtful invitation to share in perspectives and practices with roots beyond the borders of time.
  • Imbolc in Michigan on Jan. 31, 2013

    What a delightful first effort. I could not be more encouraging about continuing to write. Attention to small details in description order, formatting, and plot development would contribute to this story. But it is a cordial setting and creates a comfortable family group on which to build a more comprehensive work. It is a pleasant read. It is easy to see the talent behind this work. I hope the author continues.
  • Voice Like a Cello & Bear Country on Jan. 31, 2013

    Excellent! I enjoyed these stories. They are both attractively and intelligently crafted, although it took a moment for me to find the groove of the first. I was not prepared for the first to end when it did, but I am grateful for the way it did. I simply could not stop reading the second until I had reached the end. Told with a touch of humor, humility, and eloquence, this is a story of uncommon power and ageless possibility. Highly recommended!
  • For the One that I Love on Feb. 07, 2013

    Three lovely poems written by a man who dearly appreciates his wife. His love is clear. A beautiful read. Best wishes to them both.
  • The Dragon Is Awake on July 29, 2013

    Don P. Bick is a good storyteller. In this captivating tale full of action, suspense, and human tragedy he employs surprising plot twists and insight into the minds of his characters that make them real. Although this work would benefit from professional editing, which is why I give this work four stars instead of five, it is still very much worth reading. I'm glad I did.
  • Barnaby's Shorts (Volume Six) on Oct. 29, 2013

    I always enjoy the works of Barnaby Wilde, and this collection is no exception. My perspective has been shifted, my heart has been warmed, and my funny bone has been thoroughly tickled. Without reservation, I highly recommend this book.
  • The Peppermint Major on Nov. 07, 2013

    An exceptional poem. The first time through is a journey of gentle discovery, and every time after that brings a quiet smile and heartfelt warmth. The structure of the poem is impressive, comfortable, and a pleasure to read.
  • Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun on Nov. 07, 2013

    This short story seemed rushed to me. But as the book depicts, there is a desire for "Quick. Simple. No entanglements."
  • Making Rounds on Nov. 07, 2013

    An excellent way to keep a bright mind busy with productive endeavors in a job that contains much boredom. The result is worth reading.
  • Darkness on Nov. 07, 2013

    This loving tribute may not be the most finely crafted poem ever written, but it fuels the imagination to move in many directions. Clearly there is a story here waiting to be told.
  • Barnaby's Shorts (Volume 7) on Jan. 15, 2014

    There is no such thing as disappointment when reading Barnaby Wilde. All of the stories in this collection are well worth reading. As soon as I finished this collection, I began looking forward to the publication of the next volume. I'm sure I'm not alone. "Chameleons" is evidence of a genius at work. That one, alone, is worth the price of this book. And there are many more than that. Highly recommended.
  • Memory Drops on May 16, 2014

    Normally I don't make it too far into a book of poetry. But this one is different. I am intrigued by the stark clarity and the largely unexplored perspective in these pieces. I've read this book three times, and I'm sure I will do it again.
