Here is a review from "you'll be sorry".5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed July 9, 2013
By read-along-with-Sue
I couldn't sleep well last night due to the heat, so I picked up this short story.
The author John A Miller is a new author, very new to me. His style was superb, I loved the concept of the story and how it built very quickly, the characters in the book soon shot up to be real to me, and Herman, the dog. I could have read this book for longer as I had enjoyed it so much. The 'kick' in the book came suddenly which kept me enthralled, too short! I wanted more.

I downloaded this book when it was pointed out to be a freebie that day, so glad I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to read his other books. Can I just say to, I have "met" the author on line, he's a lovely humble chap too. Please look out for his books, you won't regret it.

Here is an excerpt from "Trail Dust".
"I think you need to go outside and get some air, my friend."
"You're that marshal everyone is talking about. You would rather talk than fight."
"I like to keep the peace, you could say."
The man turned to the other men at the table. "He is a coward with a badge." He spat, hitting the floor an inch from Joshua's right boot. The other three men at the table laughed.
"I'm going to ask you again. Go outside and cool off."
The man stood there boring holes in Joshua with his eyes. Their eyes met for another moment until the man reached for his gun. Joshua drew his Colt from his left holster and pointed it at the man's chest. He froze and his eyes widened. The man sitting in the middle of the table started to stand slowly. Joshua drew his Colt from his right holster and pointed it at him, without taking his eyes off the man standing.
"There are four of us, and you have both guns spoke for." said a third man at the table. His face slid from smug to scared when he felt Anna's Schofield push against the back of his head. The man raised his hands slowly.
In closing he would like to say.
" Be proud of where you come from, because it will reflect on what you have become today

Smashwords book reviews by John Miller

  • Malfunction on June 25, 2013

    I must admit I was very intrigued by this story. With only two main characters to follow it felt like I was standing there watching them live and going through the motions with them. The descriptive imagination this author shows in this story is brilliant. The way he describes in detail of what the characters are trying to accomplish in this book makes it an awesome read.
  • Carrie's Hired Hand on Oct. 30, 2013

    This is the first book I have read from Mary Findley and must say it was an interesting read. Her use of the southern dialogue in her story depicting times from the civil war where to me spot on. Being born and bred in the south where we pretty much destroy the English language it made me feel more at home to me. I was not offended in any way buy the grammar used for the characters in the south. The story held my interest more and more as I continued reading. I think she was trying to make a point with the main character being deaf and I liked the hand symbols between the scenes. ”Nice touch” The only thing I didn’t like about the story that it is not finished. I was just getting to the good stuff when the book ended. So maybe this is a work in progress? In any event I did like the characters and the plot line as I read. I hope she gets this story finished so I can find out what happens next. One last note, the editing and formatting for this story was also great and it was easy to read do to this. So inclosing even though the book is not finished, I would still give it 5 stars and ask Mary to finish it when she gets time to do so.
  • Being Kind In An Unkind World on Oct. 30, 2013

    I really enjoyed reading this short story. I myself have shown a few acts of kindness. I have held open the door and got something down from the tops shelf. I also have pushed a few cars and given jump starts to people with dead batteries. Does this make me a better person? In today’s society we have forgotten the little things in life and are to buys dealing with our own problems to stop and take that extra moment for others. It’s a shame that those individuals are the ones needing the help. So, are they passing on what Miss Johnson is talking about in this story? I think everyone should take the time to read this and ask themselves if they are. I think the world would be a better place if people just stopped and ask? “Maybe this could be me next time.”
  • Timeshaft on Dec. 30, 2013

    We all like to watch science fiction on the big screen. It’s interesting to see the technology that curtails from an author’s mind and how their imagination comes to life in a story. I myself like sy-fy so in reading “Time shaft” I was taken in by what Stewart Bint was saying in his novel. I really like the air cars and the soap opera that seemed to be the talk of town so to speak. But what I enjoyed about the novel was his use of words. I will say Mr Bint is a words smith in his own rights. The first few sentences are a testimony to what I’m talking about and I will give you an example. “Fog hung low over the dying lands – a fog far removed from the shimmering white mist once seen above fields and water in the moments after dawn. On this now-tainted world dawns had long since ceased to exist. So had sunsets, so had days, so had nights.” The way Mr Bint describes in detail of the surroundings and the description of the events in this story are fantastic. I won’t spoil you all with any more details. But I highly praise this book and you won’t be disenchanted after you have finished reading it.
  • Twisted on March 23, 2015

    Once again I had the pleasure of listening to another audible book by Uvi Poznansky. This time I enjoyed "Twisted" on CD. The one word to define Uvi would be "Wordsmith." The way she uses verses in her books are remarkable. The accounts to detail and the way she expresses to the reader or in this case the listener is works of art. My favorite again from "Twisted" was called "The one who wouldn't leave." I won't tell you what it's about, but trust me it was a good story and I enjoyed every minute of it. So, In closing I must say that I recommend this book if you want to sit back and enjoy some of her deep thoughts again and I did find some slight humor there also. I give it 5 stars and looking forward to more of her work in the future. One final note, the narrator on the audio book was terrific. I enjoyed Heather Jane Hogan doing the different voices to the character's and her voice was a pleasure to listen to
  • Home on March 23, 2015

    Being the average American male, I am into action adventure along with a good shoot out and car chase scene. I thought reading poetry wouldn't be my cup of tea. Wow, was I wrong. I was gifted the audio version of "Home" from a friend and I'm glad I established it. I down loaded on my computer then made a CD so I could listen to it as I drive. I own an 18 wheeler and like to listen to diverse things. I left Dallas this am and as I was driving across Texas I began to listen to "Home." At first I didn't know what to anticipate, was there going to be a car chase? No, Instead I had the pleasure of listening to the deep thoughts of Uvi Poznansky. The words she expressed got me thinking about my own life and made me feel I could get to know her as I listened. I will say there were two prose that are my favorites. "Child hood years" and "A child in a wagon." Don't ask me why because I have no idea, except I was moved by them. It could of ben the words and thought's she conveyed or it reminded me of something from my own childhood. Maybe reading "Home "would be a different experience than the audio version I had the pleasure of enjoying? If you're a reader and want to reflect back in you're on way of childhood or just read about her life and thoughts. Then I highly recommend "Home." Thank you Uvi for sharing your thoughts and emotions in this book so we all can enjoy.
