Smashwords book reviews by BSmitty222

  • SNAFU: Everyone Has Their Demons on Dec. 08, 2015

    This author has a great creative imagination and a solid writing style. I was wondering if he was a WWII veteran because he really puts you in the middle of the aircraft carrier war in the Pacific. Then he introduces a top secret element that introduces a cool other dimension. Would love to see this expanded into a novel. Thanks for
  • Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story on Dec. 08, 2015

    This is the best story I've read here on Smashwords. The author really knows how to write. Every scene has strong visuals, smells and feelings. There is a gripping plot full of action and suspense, and there are several characters who I really connected with. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.
  • Vodka Vickie on May 03, 2016

    A decent private eye story with some paranormal elements. The title "Vodka Vickie" had me thinking the main character would be a hard boozer, but that was not the case. Starts with a witty sarcastic bit of narration but this voice drops off after awhile and the story is a straight detective procedural.

    Bleak and beautiful.
  • The Pirate on Aug. 03, 2017

    At first I thought this was going to be another tired old story about pirates aboard wooden ships, a wooden leg and rough talk ... but that is not it at all. This is a salty sea story and it takes place today. It's about a likeable young sailor aboard a big Coast Guard Cutter who gets himself into some very serious trouble. The plot is not too simple and not too complicated (learned some cool things about being on a Coast Guard ship at sea and how major drug busts go down). The action kept me engaged on every page. The author tells the story with great detail but never gets bogged down. There are some guns and some shooting but it's not overdone, not a 'shoot-em-up' story at all. There's rapid action, occasional comedy, a broken romance and a series of horrible crimes committed on both sides of the law. There was something really good and a bit different about this story and I can't quite put my finger on it. The locations are fresh (Key West, aboard a ship at sea, a rough Miami barrio), the main characters are new (a Coast Guard sailor, street criminals, a kingpin, a ship's captain, a DEA agent), and the plot is original (crime on both sides of the law), and the way the author writes is very readable. Everything is well described, quite vivid actually, but the action is all new and different compared to most everything I've read in a long time. There is something very fresh and exciting about this story, I guess that's it.
  • Asgard Tales from the Golden Hall. on Aug. 03, 2017

    Glad I stumbled across this book of poems. I agree with the other reviewers, the author has taken the time to craft these poems and they are well worth a read. Very much enjoyed.
