An interesting story about apocalyptic America. Worth reading. It is very descriptive and therefore, places the reader into the thick of things following character(s) as they navigate and fight their way through this new world.
Enjoyed reading this piece. The voice and tone of the writer is engaging, honest and interesting. The information will help creative writers understand the difficulty of transitioning from business, academic or formal non-fiction writing to creative writing. Oh, by the way, Baren's writing is really good!

Beneath (pg. 12)

Wonderful, beautiful poems that illustrate great dept and sensitivity. For those who love poems, who seek hope, healing, understanding of some of life's ups and downs, read this excellent work of poetry.
Enjoyed reading "Working on a Super Yacht". I learned about the hard work of securing a position, living in small quarters, washing down the deck and making mistakes along the way. There is also the thoughts and musings of wildlife in the sea: dolphins, turtles, etc. What is most notable is that the author had the courage to completely change his life, which he briefly discusses.
The writing style teaches the reader about securing a position and working on a super yacht. The writing is engaging, heart-warming and encouraging. No words wasted. A joy to read. This booklet is for anyone who wants an introduction to working on a super yacht, but it is also for those who are considering changing their life, and don't know how.
(review of free book)
The story was enjoyable and suspenseful with a satisfactory ending. The sex scenes were a bit jarring or inappropriate for what in essence is a sweet romance. After all, what woman would want to make love to another man (no matter how kind) after being severely beaten by a cruel and abusive husband. That isn't realistic. Overall, the sex scenes were distracting, because they seemed out of place in such a sweet romance. That being said, Sarah Smith is a good storyteller, which is why the 4 stars.
I learned exactly what it means to speed read and it wasn't what I thought, which was just fast reading. According to this book, I am one of those people that reads one word at a time, which is slow reading. I'm now going to practice reading in chunks instead of one word at a time. Very educational.
The book is good for beginners and intermediate writers. The writing style is conversational and easy to read. In addition, there is solid ideas on writing, editing, proofreading and publishing self-help books.Enjoyed reading it.
