Smashwords book reviews by Jeff McDargh

  • Lady in the Room on Sep. 26, 2013

    Great work, keep em coming. Could have expanded a little at the end but still great job
  • Identikit on Sep. 26, 2013

    Colin Reed defiantly knows how to set a mood
  • Trick or treat on Sep. 26, 2013

    great story,fun read. reminded me of being a kid. thank you.
  • Isaac's Bible (a flash fiction story) on Oct. 16, 2013

    Great story, love the atmosphere and feel. The face you went with a male perspective I found interesting. Looking forward to more. P.S. thanks for the review honest and constructive without being nasty And I found a great author
  • A Week And A Day In The Lives Of Two Angry Young Men on Oct. 26, 2013

    Ok loved the story. Laughed my ass off towards the end. Thanks for the review. One star ok, a half hour to read and you didn’t finish?
  • Cons on Nov. 23, 2013

    A little like the twilight zone episode, written in hell. Works for me.
  • The Ancient eBook Reader on Jan. 04, 2014

    Fun story and I liked the self-reference
  • Bacon Double Cheesemurder on Jan. 16, 2014

    Great story. I did see the outcome, but I think I knew that going in and I still enjoyed the ride. Odd, is the story setting in America or the UK? Other than the use of the words gormless, tyres it could be set in America. Thanks for the read and love the cover.
  • First Mistakes - A Guide For Smashwords Fiction Writers on Jan. 16, 2014

    I agree with Walter. Spot-on and you don’t feel like your reading a text book. Also like the part about Criticism.
  • Number Withheld on Jan. 18, 2014

    Nice job of setting the mood and showing his descent. It reminds me of the old spy movies. Nicely done.
  • Crimson Veil on Jan. 18, 2014

    Great story. I agree the dialogue was realistic and a good twist at the end. Fun read, thanks.
  • Deleted Memories on Jan. 23, 2014

    I enjoyed your store, thank you. Do not listen to people like Patrick Jane. A one word review isn't constructive and as a fellow author he should be ashamed. If you haven't, check out First Mistakes by David Blake, especially the first part. It can be found here at Smashwords. Keep writing.
  • In His Own Bed on Jan. 23, 2014

    A good story and well written. Romance, yes. Horror not so sure, but enjoyed it just the same. Thanks and hope to read more from you
  • The Man in Black on Jan. 28, 2014

    Mr. Jane I'm impressed with your re-review of Alexandra Mosko work. I enjoyed your story, great ending. Not sure if the word “the” was left out several times to show a way of speech or just a typo, but nicely done. Thank you for sharing your work and my best to you.
  • 26 Minds on Standby on Jan. 30, 2014

    Fantastic! I read it the first time start to finish and then again out of order and the execution works as good as the concept. I had this mental image of a camera moving me from one person and story to another with a narrator. Loved it, but dogs can look up I don’t care what Big Al says.
  • Oblivious on Jan. 31, 2014

    Stars off a little like Robert Frost with a great description of the woods. Great job with the ending things build up from bad to worse.
  • Smashwords Writing Duel on Feb. 05, 2014

    “Won of the best storys on Smasshwords ive ever red.” Starts off fun with the back and forth and ends with a bit deeper back story of Linda. Nicely done. I didn’t see Linda’s character as weak, but more…. lived. God, I'm glad “Clever Trevor” hasn’t found me yet and I'm starting to agree with some of the reviews of this and your other stories. Dammit, I wish id thought of that story first! Great job, thanks
  • Here in Sullen on April 27, 2014

    I enjoyed your short story very much, like a twilight zone with a point. Just one thing I feels a bit rushed,something I'm guilty of my self. A little more time with it I think you could have taken it from good to great. Thank you for sharing your work.
  • Two Birds (A Short Mystery) on July 28, 2014

    I loved the story,nicely done the pace and layout of the story is spot on. Can't say much more without giving something away.
  • Together Forever on July 28, 2014

    Fun story. Like the other review stated can't say much more but read, enjoy and hope for round two.
  • 20 Minutes of Terror - A True Story on Aug. 02, 2014

    Fun story very descriptive. Thank you look forward to reading more of your work. Just read it I don't want to give anything away. You mite figure it out before you get to the end but great story.
  • Monkey Business on Sep. 05, 2014

    Nice story I would've liked a little more. The transition from the house to the car didn't flow for me. That being said I still enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of your work. Thank you.
  • Ghost Train on Sep. 28, 2014

    Nice story and well written but I agree with Mr Lee I think I just wanted a little more. Great job, keep writing and thank you.
  • Endless on Oct. 22, 2014

    Fun and nicely written short and perfect for the season. Nice cover. Thank you.
  • Faceless on Oct. 25, 2014

    Great job. I'm like Cyril I would have liked a little more. Thank you. And as the father of two girls more power to you, I'm behind you.
  • Clock Work on Dec. 10, 2014

    Ok not normally my type of read but I'm glad I did very well written. If you like Cassandra Clare and those types of urban fantasy you'll enjoy this. Thank you for a fun read.
  • Twas A Good Day To Die on Dec. 22, 2014

    It's a little different than Jonathan Strickland other works but definitely worth the read. I like the blinding in of where we are in the story with the back story of how our it got to this point. Nice job and thank you.
  • The Special Christmas Ornaments of Mr. Everett on Dec. 25, 2014

    Ok so I decided to read it after reading Bob's review and he was spot on kinda it was a nice tale with a disturbing ending. Thank you
