Smashwords book reviews by Barbara Tsipouras

  • Preferred Rewards on July 04, 2015

    Don't look at the cover, just don't. You'll get the wrong impression. This isn't your typical romance novel. Gina and Troy are two totally normal college kids falling in love. They have their totally normal insecurities and they make mistakes. There's no hero and no spectacular suspense, but it's everything but boring. Michael tells this story in an entertaining humorous way with a lot of insight in Troys thoughts and feelings. Yes, there is a lot of sex going on, described in an unbelievably erotic and sensitive way, explicit and graphic but never vulgar. His dialogues are taken directly from real life. For me it's a very special Young Adult (18+) book.
  • Edge Of God on Nov. 07, 2015

    This excellent book doesn't fit in any genre. It is funny and sad, erotic and romantic, wise and thougtful, set on a far away planet it isn't really a science fiction, parallels with Earth and certain celebrities intended. A book that will make you think about yourself, your live, love and God. There are so many distinct characters, some more lovable, some less, all well developed, this different world is discribed so skillfully that after some pages you'll feel "at home". I want to thank Michael for giving me the opportunity to read it in advance and I recommend this book to everybody who wants to laugh, feel with the characters and think about themselves while reading an unusual story.
  • Zaid: An Urban Tale on Jan. 25, 2016

    This is a very sad, very good written story about life in the ghetto. The author promises to publish a full novel about Zaid in the fall of 2016, hopefully I'll remember to read it.
  • The Drama, The Street And The Seduction on Jan. 25, 2016
    (no rating)
    This is how we imagine life in the ghetto, short, cruel, passionate.
  • Untruths on Jan. 26, 2016

    This seems to be a very short raw outline for an interesting novel. Unfortuntely it doesn't work as short story.
  • Come In on July 25, 2017

    This invitation to come in, to find a place were you're welcomed and can feel at home, a shelter, is not really a short story, it's a poem with illustrations.
  • You are Hungry on July 25, 2017

    Within a few pages this story sums up a miserably failed life by our standards, but the most depressing thing is the attitude of our society.
  • Ties That Bind: Family Stories on July 25, 2017

    This very short compilation of very short short-stories is not about family problems or crisis but about the deep bonds within family. As is usually the case with such anthologies, there are better stories and others, that didn't touch me same way.
  • Forgiveness on July 25, 2017
    (no rating)
    Although this short tory made me cry I think it was a bit overloaded to be believable and convinving for those who don't yet believe.
