Smashwords book reviews by Ali Anthony Bell

  • The Skin of Lions: Rwandan Folk Tales and Fables on Jan. 19, 2022

    Nice, but too short. Folktales and stories told by children of an orphanage in Rwanda. It just gives us a taste and left me unsatisfied.
  • Lore of Rainbow on Jan. 19, 2022

    Nazarian opens a story with an ending, the story is still yet to come and the short tale is in itself a gem.
  • Tales of Light and Dark on Jan. 19, 2022

    Amusing 21st century twists to traditional fairy tales. Enjoyable read.
  • Mingling in the CIA: Bloud on Jan. 19, 2022

    Interesting, but ends when it's just getting started.
  • Mingling in the CIA: Annie on Jan. 19, 2022

    Enjoyable read, better than it's precedent "Annie" (Mingling in the CIA#2)
  • Single in the CIA on Jan. 19, 2022

    Having written most of my own works as either autobiographical adult fiction or memoir, I can relate to how difficult it is to open up and tell the whole world secrets about my personal life. One book review from another author stated that I write "...telling things ... that almost nobody I know would actually publish." This is in the same category. Shelly states that writing this was a release for her, and I can definitely understand this.
  • Short Stories Of Ancient Ireland on Jan. 19, 2022

    The lore in itself is interesting, however the storytelling is not done in an engaging way.
