Smashwords book reviews by glenn robinson

  • Star Wars: A Certain Point of View on March 19, 2013

    Pretty good for Fan Fic. If you can't get enough Star Wars, go ahead and consume. The high point was a shaggy dog setup - the kid asking Khian "Did you score?" Of course, one could see it coming, but I still smiled. This was my second dip into Smashwords, and I selected a random free read. On this basis, I won't bother to read other novels by Gremillion. Three fair character studies, Khian being the best, but this piece doesn't really make you CARE about the characters studied (except the kid).
  • The Farm on March 19, 2013

    Modest, enjoyable, unexceptional.
  • Is This Heaven? on March 19, 2013

    A fun read! Would make a great first chapter of a longer work. I'm looking forward to reading more of McGuire's work
  • They Came, They Saw, They Took the Tinfoil on March 19, 2013

    M. T., your ending is too abrupt. You need to leave 'em pondering and smiling, not dazed! Enjoyable and possibly the start of a larger work. Great imagination and descriptions. Consider all the comments and rewrite as an exercise. I'd enjoy reading the result.
  • Motorbike Men on March 27, 2013

    Attractive, believable characters. Hard to put the book down. Easy, fast-paced read. You wish it could be true. I enjoyed it and recommend it.
  • Their Own Game on March 27, 2013

    Fast-paced novel, attractive characters, easy read, hard to put down. Clever story. I recommend it. I read this one first, and didn't realize it was part of a trilogy. At least the first two can be read in either order. I'm looking forward to reading the third.
  • An Expert's Quick Guide to Planetary Travel on Oct. 26, 2014

    Imaginative, clever, well-balanced, carefully edited and enjoyable. Proper length for the topic.
  • Here to Help on Oct. 26, 2014

    Essentially an expanded one-liner. Good writing style, and holds the reader's interest until it fizzles at the end.
  • Son of a Dark Wizard on Jan. 03, 2015

    More than I expected; well written and engrossing. Not your usual coming of age story. The protagonists are children, but not simpletons. It's all about maturity and the right use of power. There is some nice description in the hunt for the rire (yes, that's its name). Looking forward to the sequel.
  • The Entangled Monkey Papers on July 15, 2015

    Wow! I'm going to have to re-read the first few chapters before I say much more than Wow! Merrill wrestles manfully (OK, boy-fully) with the fundamentals of existence to synthesize and communicate a comprehensive world view. Not for the faint of heart, but not hard to read. More later. If I figure it all out, I will award a 5th star for communication. Meanwhile, I recommend it to anyone wishing a good mind stretch.
  • The Entangled Monkey Papers on July 15, 2015

    I re-read this book and also an article about the Moreva experiment in 2013. There is still a gap in my understanding between subjective or local emergent time and common or global emergent time. I am awarding a fifth star for bringing this development, which has both physical and philosophical implications, to a wider audience. Well worth reading and re-reading by those interested in science and philosophy.
  • The Bonfire Heart of DB Winters on Aug. 18, 2015

    Remarkable! Hardly more than a vignette, but maybe all that needs to be said about human love. Well written, error-free, easy reading. Read it!
