Smashwords book reviews by James Wilcox

  • Pilate's Cross on Aug. 16, 2011

    Although I enjoyed J. Alexander Greenwood's novel Pilate's Cross, I have to admit that I do have one complaint: it was too short. Mr. Greenwood came up with and developed a nice story line, with interesting characters, while managing to squeeze in layers of suspense, action, and even a little romance. I really enjoyed that Mr. Greenwood made the book more than just a "who done it" mystery, with his connections to civil rights, segregation, and small town politics. The problem is, I wanted more. I wanted to spend more time with Pilate, Simon, Kate, Kara, and Scovill. Pilate's Cross could have been twice as long and still remained the enjoyable, fast paced story it is. Nice job!
  • Losing Myself (Short Story) on Sep. 27, 2011

    I don't read many short stories because I like characters and stories that I can sink my teeth into. I picked up this story because I try to support local authors and Tim Morrell is a local author for me. Interesting idea, but I wanted more. More character development, a more fully developed story, etc. Not bad for a short story, but this could easily be developed into a full length novel and I think I would have appreciated it more.
  • Piercing Through the Darkness on Jan. 03, 2012

    As I became engrossed in the tale of a college professor who has recently lost his wife and daughter and suddenly find the person "responsible" for this loss in his class, I was impressed with the fast paced writing, strong character development, and the intricate story Emerald Barnes manages to weave in such a short time. My one complaint though is that the story simply isn't long enough! I wanted more. I wanted to know more about Kandi, Jimmy, and John. If Piercing Through the Darkness is any indication of things to come, I look forward to reading more of Ms. Barnes work. I would give this 4.5 stars if that were an option. Good job Ms. Barnes! Keep writing!
