Smashwords book reviews by Plkno Plachno

  • The Legend of League Park on Dec. 20, 2012

    I am a huge fan of baseball and was excited to read this book. Unfortunately, I think I was the wrong demographic for this book. The story line had two themes I could not wrap my mind around as I was reading. I could not relate to the trials and tribulations surrounding women and baseball. I also had difficulty with the spirit world parts of the book. I could see how this book could be appreciated by those that could relate and/or are interested in these themes. I kept wanting to know/learn more about the brother and his baseball experiences, but that was not what this book was about. I would not recommend this book to a baseball fan solely on the story surrounding baseball. I do think this book is unique and will be of interest to others. Note: This book was free and given to me with the expectation that I would review. The content of my review was in no way influenced by this understanding. The book speaks for itself and my review would have been worded just this way even if I'd gone out and bought it.
  • Elements of the Undead Omnibus on Dec. 24, 2012

    The author was not afraid to kill key people. I thoroughly enjoyed that showing nobody was safe and anyone could die at any time. It definitely made for more suspense with the book knowing someone you were rooting for or against could be gone at any time. This book definitely held my attention and I kept sneaking an extra few pages whenever possible to find out what happens next. I liked the different groups surviving in separate communities with different leadership styles. I also enjoyed the pace of the book. The author did not force things along at too quick of a pace. I look forward to reading how things progress in the next book(s). This was my first zombie book so I cannot comment on how it compares to others. Warning: The book had some graphic and sexual parts in case anyone would be offended by that. Note: This book was free and given to me with the expectation that I would review. The content of my review was in no way influenced by this understanding. The book speaks for itself and my review would have been worded just this way even if I'd gone out and bought it.
  • The Patriot Paradox on Dec. 26, 2012

    I enjoyed this book. I was originally concerned the length of the book was too short to allow a detailed full story, but was wrong with that concern. There could have been more character elaboration, but the story was not lacking without it. There was some solid thought with twists and turns put into how it played out. I liked that nobody was an unrealistic hero or villain. I am a computer guy so I appreciated the techie parts of the book. I found the twist at the end interesting. Just prior to reading this book I read books 1-3 of Elements of the Undead Omnibus also by the same author William Esmont and liked it as well. I will be watching for future books from this author.
