Smashwords book reviews by Bradley Cobb

  • A Treasure Deep on March 08, 2018

    I purchased this book over a decade ago, and from the very first paragraph, I was entranced. The realities of what Perry and his crew discovered (no spoilers here), and the possibilities for what that discovery could mean for mankind, are jaw-dropping. But there's a not-so nice guy after it as well, determined to do anything to extend his life. Even after 14 years, I can still vividly remember the opening and final scenes of this excellent book. That's how good it is. If you like Clive Cussler, you will love Alton Gansky and his Perry Sachs mysteries.
  • Beneath the Ice on March 08, 2018

    I was privileged to read this book several years ago when it was first released, and well-remember the inventive and fascinating plotlines, the characters, and the finale--taking place under a canopy of ice at one of the biggest landmarks in history--that no one living has ever seen. No spoilers here. Alton Gansky is a top-notch storyteller, and this book did not disappoint at all!
  • The Homeless Hero on March 16, 2018

    The writing leaves a lot to be desired. It is written in first person, with the narrator being a woman reporter (note: the author of the book is a man). The sentences are often incomplete and unexplained as (without any rhyme, reason, or warning) the narrator skips from one topic to another. Seriously, one paragraph about lusting after Pinnacle, followed immediately by a one-sentence paragraph about not getting along with her mom. That's the end of the chapter. The idea behind the book sounded great. But instead, it is a story about a woman reporter wanting to sleep with the hero. At least, that's what the first several pages reveal. I quit reading after that point.
  • The Silver Seals - Skylar on March 20, 2018

    This book, written from a first-person point of view, follows a smart-aleck set of triplets who go from one event to another, with no character development at all. Many things just happen, and no explanation is given, no reflection, nothing. For example, the triplets get into a fight with three other students, and the teacher doesn't ask for details, but just lets them go--and the brothers give no thought to it at all. Not a single word is utilized to describe what should have been a surprise to them. And early in the novel, the author decided it would be beneficial to throw in the f-word. That's a surefire way to ruin what little story there was (and there wasn't much). The writing is in desperate need of an editor.
  • The Golden Age: We Used to Fly (Prologue to the Golden Age series) on March 22, 2018

    This short story (prologue) leaves you anxiously awaiting the book itself. It is well-written, and creates an immediate connection with the dad who is telling the story of the downfall of the superheroes to his son. I had a good idea of the twist that was coming, but the author did a good job of showing it in a way I wasn't expecting. Best free book I've gotten from Smashwords!
  • Trainee Superhero (Book One) on March 24, 2018

    I like the concept, and there are some really cool scenes and takes on superhero training that aren't common. However, there are some typos scattered throughout that would have been caught by using an editor.
  • The Purple Skull Number 1 on March 28, 2018

    Disappointed that the author, who has some good story ideas, decided it would be helpful to litter his writings with f-bombs.
