Smashwords book reviews by Stormyjmarie

  • Three for Avadar on Nov. 14, 2011

    I wrote a Review in book started from the first page and kept on going to the very end with action. Chapter One begins with introducing you to the three main characters who attrack danger. The three main characters each have their own reasons for wanting to get to Avadar. The chapters had their own suspense and dramas going on in them and sometimes they did overlap. However this kept you reading so you could find out what happened next. I enjoyed this book and would take a chance and read another novel by Steven Drennor. I wanted to read and finish this book to see how it ended even though I am not an avid book reader.
  • American Nightmare on Nov. 14, 2011

    Sorry, this was not my type of book. It rambled on, too many words to say the same thing. A man loses his job and goes on a killing spree. It woud have been more interesting if maybe someone got loose or the police got wise or something. He more less gets away with murder.
  • The Old One on Nov. 14, 2011

    I enjoyed the book. It kept moving along. You read about a small town and their well kept secret. Does the secret remain a secret? Once the secret is revealed, if it is, does it become public or just to the few that happened upon it? The ending was a surprise to me. I did not see it coming. Good job!
  • The Paperboys Club on Nov. 15, 2011

    I wrote a review in This is an author to keep your eyes on. The Paperboys club by Mobashar Qureshi was a detective story. You have a single mother who is a detective and is up for a promotion. However, it is a game of chance. There are two detectives up for the same promotion and to get the promotion each is given a cold case to solve. Samtha's (Sam) case is five years old and has some interesting twist to it. There also is Sam's daughter MaryAnn, who has a few issues of her own which leads her to join the Paperboys Club. We can not leave out Clarence who is in the mental institution. I enjoyed reading this book and kept reading it to see how the author was going to join the three different events into a main theme. I do not normally read detective books; however, this one I would highly recommend.
  • Most Likely on Nov. 15, 2011

    I wrote my review in I enjoyed reading this book because it starts right off with the story and not a lot of description and keeps on going. It shows how a girl had everyday situations that sometimes weren't all smooth going. Girls tend to be more of an emotional creature and this book helps to show how the storms of life comes about and how this teen handled them. The book covers teen pressures, dealing with friendship issues, abuse of friends, keeping secrets, rumors and family problems. In life everything comes down to making a CHOICE. It also helps those who are always helping others to realize it is okay to take a few moments out to recoop. I especially liked the fact that this tennager was a Christian and the author was able to bring in her concerns about does she follow her beliefs or go with the crowd. After reading this book, I am going to check out to see what else this author has written. Keep them coming. Good Job!
  • The City on Dec. 21, 2011

    I got this from the Members Giveaway. I enjoyed reading this detective novel. He starts right in with the plot and keeps you guessing until the end. In fact, the ending was a surprise. I did not see that coming. I read the authors other novel "The Paperboy Club" and enjoyed that as well. This is an author that I would look for.
  • Hammerhead on July 30, 2012

    I received this book from LibraryThing. It started right from page one with the action. It kept your interest. It was not just killing for the killing, he had a purpose to why he killed the victims. Go out and read it.
