Smashwords book reviews by Matt Crawford

  • Kronosaur on March 18, 2010

    Kronosaur is a very short funny story about "persistence and plesiosaurs". It's an awful cliché, but I didn't want to stop reading it once I'd started (thankfully, it's only about 17 pages, so that wasn't a problem). The story moves at a fair pace, and it never gets boring. It even reminds me a little of a Kurt Vonnegut story at times.
  • But As A Soldier, For His Country on May 17, 2010

    "But As A Soldier, For His Country" is a little overwrought for my tastes (but only just a little), it's still an interesting short story about war and the effect is has on the men who fight in it. It's probably not to everyone's tastes, but if the preview is even a little interesting to you, you'll probably like the whole story a lot.
  • Gamearth on May 26, 2011

    I really like this book. I don't read much fantasy (I have a lot of it, but it's hard for me to get into it), but Gamearth sucked me in. It took a few chapters, but once I was into the story I couldn't put it down. The characters are well-defined and are believable, the situations create a sense of genuine dread, and the story pulls you along with it. I can't wait to start the second book.
  • The Killing of the Saints on Sep. 12, 2011

    I really do like this book quite a lot. It seems (and I want to stress seems, because I have no idea how the legal system works in the real world) like a more realistic depiction of a high-profile trial. The trial itself plays itself out slowly, and most of the time that Charlie isn't in court he spends surrounded by cultists. It has some flaws, but it really is an exciting, fast-paced crime novel.
