About H. Lee Morgan, Jr

I'm Lee,
As a child I've always had a vivid imagination, but it wasn't until I was in a swimming accident and becoming paralyzed due to having my neck broken at the age of 14 that I could bring my imagination to life, through writing. My life has undoubtedly been harsher than others, being forced to live in a wheelchair and all, but my imagination, personality and drive to continue has helped me to write. It's impossible to know if I'd still write if not for being a quadriplegic, but I've come to enjoy writing and sharing my passion and stories with others.

I feel so ambivalent about this book. I am giving it 3 starts because thats the closest I can get to 2.5 stars.

On one hand, as other readers have found, the book is rife with all kinds of errors. I can't stand even a few in a book. This book is LOADED with spelling, grammatical and tense errors. What the heck is the deal with all the past/present tense issues? It drove me crazy. The book gets ZERO stars because of that. I usually won't even bother to read a book beyond a few pages if things are that bad.

On the other hand, the story was SO GOOD that I was compelled to keep reading. The author has some fascinating ideas, i.e., the "item". I lost sleep 2 or three nights in a row (my boss says thank you very much H. Lee Morgan)because I had to find out happens next in each chapter. The book gets 5 stars for that.

It averages out to 2.5, so I rounded it all off to 3 stars.

I hate the idea of spending $5.00 on a sequel, but will inevitably give in at some point cause I just have to have more of Alex, Lily and Shade.

I also really enjoyed this book despite the spelling and grammatical errors. A strong storyline, good characters and continuity. I look forward to reading the sequel shortly. An author to follow.

I also agree that this book would benefit from being edited, but that does not take away from it being an immersing story, that grabbed my attention from beginning to end. I have just bought the 2nd book and can't wait to get started.

I agree with Tam wholeheartedly. Especially the continuous use of the present tense in between took away my immersion. Its a little sad because the story is great.

I enjoyed reading this book quite a bit more then I expected to. There are continual grammar errors throughout the book along with tense (past and present) getting mixed up. I usually can't read books with a lot of errors as I get frustrated but the story for this book kept me reading. It was fascinating. With an editor's help, I believe this book could go from being a good read to a great read.
