Smashwords book reviews by Bill Otieno

  • I Love You This Much on Nov. 26, 2012

    I learned of this book from Facebook- and I loved reading it. It's short- full of emotion and you can't help but wonder what happens to the narrator at the end, and I was happy when Leila did accept Maxwell-they were good together, it left me wondering, if the narrator was Nancy or Leila, given the scent of her perfume. Quite a twist, a beautiful book!
  • Made For You on Nov. 26, 2012

    I am going to state for the record that Dora Okeyo is my favorite Kenyan Writer-she has a way with words, especially in reading Made For You-and no, this story is not confusing-it's pretty straightforward if you've ever fallen in and out of love!
  • Dear Yellow on Nov. 26, 2012

    loved it.
  • Say You Love Me on Nov. 27, 2012

    So beautiful, the title does the story justice.
  • The Absolutely Boring Life of Mya on Nov. 27, 2012

    interesting- Mya reminds me of MTV sweet sixteen!
  • December on Dec. 14, 2012

    Dora's my favorite writer so far-and reading "December" is proof. There's tension between leila and Maxwell and in reading the final story I thought she'd turn down his proposal- but I was in for something else and that's what I loved about this short take of their love.
  • December on Dec. 14, 2012

    I loved it!!!
  • Pieces on Feb. 20, 2013
    (no rating)
    I love how strong Maria is and her voice and pain is one and the same-and you cannot help but think how she could stand her husband's adultery-even when the number of women have superseded her fingers. Good story
  • Pieces on Feb. 20, 2013

    I loved Maria's strength.
  • I Wanted To Tell You on Feb. 25, 2013

    Deeply moving. I want a Son like Isaac- one who sets me free at least, if am locked up.
  • The Single Diaries on April 18, 2013

    Funny, and a great read. I laughed so much reading this.
  • Anna on May 17, 2013

    After reading "The Truth about me and Anna" an account of what went down between Anna and Richard- this story makes me less angry at Anna. She went for the man who truly showed her that he loved her.
  • 21 Days on March 02, 2014

    Great story. I love that this time- we hear both sides of the story from both Zora and Jack.
  • Love Like Bouts of Diarrhea on May 18, 2014

    Love is like diarrhea it needs neither an invitation nor privacy. I did like some aspects of this book. It's written very well, and you follow through the story and all but my beef with it is that I write in short code idk about u, bt that jst got me thinking why not? You get what I mean, right? Dora writes well, her dialogues are gr8! Keep writing Dora, and hope this book gets lots of downloads. It's a good one!
  • What Happened to Us? on May 23, 2014

    This book has quite the character! You cannot help but either hate or love Sandy, and though she is intelligent, she just doesn't grow on you, and that's what is good about it. It's quite different from what she's written before because the whole story is about Sandy and there's never been a more selfish character. I like this. If you live in Kenya, you can relate to Sandy's friend, Julia. This book is different but in a good way!
  • The Perfect Love Story on June 22, 2014

    Not one of my favorite works by Dora, but there's something about the letter (honesty) that got me reading to the end, and plus it's free.
