A Closer Look

Adult
Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
I have been trying for a long time now, to get my book into the Samshwords premium distribution. I have a few erotic images that I think complement my story. The powers that be, do not like them. I have tried to cover up all the bits that I thought might be offending them. Nothing works, so I give up. I reverted to the original (in most cases.) More

About Ernest Samuel Llime

Ernest Samuel Llime was born in Bucharest, Romania where he spent his first 14 years going to school and learning how to be a young commie atheist. He comes from a Transylvanian Jewish family with roots in some parts of Russia. His first language was Hungarian and eventually he managed to learn some others. He spent 14 years in Israel where he finished high school and served in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) - an organization that turned him into a tank commander and managed to put him in one during a couple of wars.

He has been living in New York City for the past 40 or so years, where he worked as a Computer Tech Support Specialist in addition to playing in various rock bands as well as a few ethnic combos. He still takes his guitar out once in a while to open mic nights and the odd paying gig. He has been happily married to his second wife for the past 14 years - from his first wife he has four children who in turn begot nine grandchildren so far.
Ernest has been telling stories for a long time now, whether in prose, poetry and music and he is a winner of the StarkLight Short Story Contest.

Review by: Myra Levine on Sep. 13, 2016 :
O.K. so I'm not going to blame you for thinking that "the fix is in" as they might say. I have to admit that I know the author and so does that Haggard dude. I just noticed that his review says reviewed on the day of purchase (and so does my other one), which makes it sound sort of suspicious. Well, here's the scoop: Ernie gave us copies of his stuff probably not long after he published each book. Obviously, we are serious procrastinators. As his collection of poetry has just come out, he started texting phoning and otherwise harassing me about the review I had promised him.

So, now to the book - yep, it is the product of a horny, twisted but also very creative mind. I couldn't have imagined some of the sex scenarios that he has come up with. I mean, like a levitating coital session? That's just the tip of the iceberg (making a tame simile.) So, you do not have to believe my opinion - there is a 10% sample that you may read for free - go for it!

Review by: A. Haggard Reader on Sep. 13, 2016 :
Each story in A Closer Look by Ernest Samuel Llime depicts what some might call a deviant aspect of human sexuality. This book will teach you what kind of wine goes best with cunnilingus and which kitchen utensils work best for spanking. You will also learn a new kind of C.P.R. that can be performed on the clinically dead as well as how a ghost might get his/her rocks off. While some might call these stories bizarre and preposterous, we can only call them inspired, inventive and solidly assembled.

Llime has a great eye for detail and a gift for descriptive narrative. Each scene is so rich in vivid detail that we can easily visualize the writer pausing between paragraphs to treat himself to a well-deserved stroke or two. To be perfectly honest we were likewise quite tempted, but there was a deadline to be met. What happens after this review is finished, might be the subject for another story.

The goofiness of Crack’O’Dawn’ia is counter-balanced by the sadness of Mommie Dearest while the lustful youth of Panorama Mama’s counter-balances the advanced old age of 100’s protagonist. I could have never imagined that a 100 year old woman could get me so aroused. Ashera, Mark’s Cards and Amy, though truly debauched, are actually beautiful love stories while Cognac Lewinsky and Pu-Shi Bar though somewhat absurd and unbelievable, still manage to get a serious rise out of us. Llime’s craft is such that if you took away the sex scenes, the stories would still stand on their own merit and be well worth reading.

Bottom line: Llime brings the mind of a child, eye of a man and craft of a writer to the exploration of sexual encounters. Keep this book on your night table next to a large box of Kleenex tissues.
