Smashwords book reviews by Patrick Worden

  • Modern Knighthood: Unleashing Your Inner Power to Master Yourself and the World. 2nd Edition on March 24, 2011
    star star star star star
    Mr. Cuhulain has shown once again a mastery of the intricacies of his subject, and of the ability to impart it in an entertaining, informative way. Without reservation I'd recommend this work, and indeed all of Kerr's titles.
  • Memoirs From The 82nd Floor and Descending on April 28, 2011
    star star star star
    Mr. Galt is an excellent writer. That is clear in this piece, where the narrator's fate is clear from the beginning. Despite that well-planned spoiler, the reader is still engaged, all the way to the wryly funny end. Keep your eye on this author. I suspect he'll continue to amaze.
  • The Last Real New Yorker in the World on April 28, 2011

    Very entertaining and well-written. A real treat for any lovers of the Big Apple.
  • Remember The Time on Feb. 06, 2013

    **I wrote the below before I finished Mark Hawk Smith's book, Remember the Time. I stand by everything I said, but wish I could have spent less time commenting on the mechanics of Smith's writing, and more time praising the story. Now that I've read it, I can't praise it enough. Suspenseful, intriguing, plausible- watch out James Renner, here comes another NEO writer tackling time travel, and tackling it perfectly. by the way, when's the next Remember the Time novel coming out? ** This is, to the best of my knowledge, Mark Smith's first novel. I also understand it's the first of a trilogy. I heartily recommend this book and I join the rest of Mr. Smith's fans in looking forward to volumes 2 and 3. One of the first things that struck me about this book is its excellent presentation. E-book consumers are all too aware that the "major" releases from established publishers are often shoddily formatted, usually while costing 3 or 4 times the price of Remember The Time. It's hard to understand how indie author-publishers like Mr. Smith provide spot-on formatted ebooks for the freshman efforts. Probably the only thing that kept Remember The Time from the full five stars, for me at any rate, was something on page 3. No way the author could know this, but it's a violation of one of my writing pet peeves: the protagonist, in a bit of inner-dialogue, "thought to himself." Well who the heck else would he be thinking to? **updated: I've decide to increase my rating to five stars. The author deserves it because it's a great read** That, obviously, is a quibble. Easy to overlook when an author presents an intriguing, well-wrought story, told engagingly and with verve. That's what you get with Mark Smith's Remember The Time, and you'll no doubt get it with the remainder of Mr. Smith's trilogy. Final note: 60k words! A nice long novel @ 3.99 = excellent value.
