Smashwords book reviews by Lisa Dee

  • Eyes on Oct. 24, 2012

    Love it! Written in the classic style of E.F. Benson and M.R. James. This "gentleman" horror short story is suitably creepy and disturbing. Highly recommended!
  • Resurrecting Cybele on Oct. 06, 2013

    This is an engaging, funny, yet ultimately challenging novel. Jen Mohammed is a master of witty and realistic dialogue and this is why it only slowly dawns on the reader that this story forces us to question why we believe what we believe. Cybele Moondragon is a likeable and intelligent protagonist who I really think should feature in future novels. We follow her struggle to start a cult as an experiment. Along the way she discovers more than she wants to about vulnerability and loyalty. Jen is a highly skilled writer who blends comedy effortlessly with gravitas. I highly recommend this debut work!
  • Angels of the Revolution on Jan. 17, 2014

    I realize now I've been taught all my life, whenever someone mentions "socialist literature" or "socialist art" to think of tractor films or sermons on the virtues of Enver Hoxha and the working class. Then along comes Angels of the Revolution and blows all this out of the water. This is a really cool book. The characters stick with you even when you've done reading it. The prose is beautiful without that precious "lookit how beautiful this prose is" quality so many such books have. You have politics on one page and death on the next and then war, and sex, and some crazy Serbian preaching liberation theology or something. There's a kind of brooding quality to a lot of it, reminding me of The Third Man and the like. Intellectual, but accessible. I don't think I've come across a book that actually THINKS so beautifully in a very long time.
