Smashwords book reviews by Lelanthran Krishna Manickum

  • Paradox (A Short Story) on Nov. 16, 2011

    While the setup was excellent, I felt it was a bit of a Deus Ex Machina ending. 3/5 stars for keeping me engaged, it would have been 4/5 if there was no Deus Ex Machina and 5/5 if not so many hints were given in the middle. If you aren't especially OCD about details all fitting in, you'll probably enjoy this much more than I did, so try it.
  • The Nine Mistakes Gamblers Make on Nov. 24, 2011

    A collection of anecdotes about gamblers. Vaguely entertaining if the reader regards it all as fiction. The author claims to have a system to win at the casino, but I'm afraid that the chapter that I read (that I'm now reviewing) contained nothing of value. I'm a statistician, and a poker player too, and did not find anything in this book that could possibly be of value to other gamblers.
