Smashwords book reviews by Donald White

  • Opposites on Oct. 14, 2012

    Wow, yeah this one surprised me. At first, it focuses on mirrors, which I love. Even the character's perspective of the mirror makes sense. And then, you find out the truth, and it is even more frightening than the build-up. This story is well-paced, succinct and the plot turns on a dime...
  • Turning Point on Oct. 14, 2012

    Such a short, little snapshot into the mind of someone contemplating the unthinkable. The strength is in the perspective of the character. She thinks about the victim and how others will be affected by his demise. Things that should be a concern to someone with her intentions
