Smashwords book reviews by Ecrivain Hongrois

  • After the Cure on Nov. 04, 2018

    Finally, a post apocalyptic zombie thriller which examines both sides..Pre and post infection..Complete with backstory 'and' cliffhanger, all nicely sewn together. This is an exceptional read. Well worth it !
  • The Remover on Nov. 17, 2018

    This is a high quality read. Although a 'dark' story (my favorites), it achieves brilliant colors as the author is so adept at painting the visuals with his writing. Bravo.
  • The Corpseriders: A Tale of Aegis Immemorial on Dec. 18, 2018

    It's a decent story.
  • Morning Star on Dec. 26, 2018

    As a sort of long story, it was more like several cliff-hangars. For me, while I thought I was becoming vested in one story, it cuts to backstories, side-stories, and the (expected) supernatural. It was, in my opinion, too many "cut-aways", and too little continuity. I'd be glad to review other writing of this author, with more of the latter. Respectfully, a reader
  • Zombie Off - The Beginning on Dec. 26, 2018

    This "series" would be a favorite if it weren't so riddled with bad writing, obvious exaggerations, and missing context of Characters. For example: there's a young, super athletic, scientist. And she only has a "first" name. The author makes it a point to give full names to the other scientists, so it adds to the ridiculousness. I like the concept of this story, and applaud the author's efforts, but 3 stars are the max.
  • The Curse of Doctor Finkenstone on Dec. 26, 2018

    A cute revisiting of an old story. The interaction between the Dr and villagers is well imagined, and I want to hear more about Igor ! LOL
  • Kisses, Suzi: A Short Horror Story on Dec. 26, 2018

    Well written and entertaining, but a bit too exaggerated near the end. (Spoiler alerts); As it was a dash-mount unit, couldn't either of them just thrown the thing out the window instead of shooting it? Since they both had mobile phones, they could've still had GPS capabilities. Oh well.
  • The Zombie Manifesto on Jan. 02, 2019

    The author is truly gifted in storytelling with vibrant discriptions and an I'm vocabulary. The story itself loses me with albiet smooth, but seemingly senseless transitions. This is dystopic, dark, and "weird"..for sure. 3.75 stars
  • X Sample on Jan. 02, 2019

    Ingenious and Impressive! Psychologically deep and thought provoking, well written, and dark. 4.5 stars
  • Parasite; The True Story of the Zombie Apocalypse on Jan. 02, 2019

    This couples apocalyptic with science. Haven't seen this combination very often, let alone well done ! 4.5 stars
  • Zombie Nights on Jan. 02, 2019

    As a writer and reader of zombie stories, this is told very well, and differently.
  • Gamers and Gods: AES on Jan. 02, 2019

    A Perfect blend of sci-fi, distopia, and flawless storytelling and execution !
  • Moriarty and the Massacre of Mammon on Jan. 05, 2019

    A very well done revisitation of a Sherlock Holmes story, but from the villian's perspective. Bien fait !
  • Zombie Dash on Jan. 05, 2019

    My kind of "fun run". Finally a run with a real purpose..to survive. Nicely done !
  • Squire Chloe's Demon (An Epic Fantasy Tale) on Jan. 05, 2019

    A well told epic fantasy journey !
  • Vertical City: A Zombie Thriller (Book 1 of 4) on Jan. 05, 2019

    A well threaded chronology of post apocalyptic zombie pandemic. The ending sounded like afterthought filler, but it could've been by design. Nevertheless, a good Zombie read.
  • Adrift on Jan. 05, 2019

    A good story; weird fiction; Leaving the reader hopeful for the characters,but melancholy for their future. 4.5 stars
  • Seeds on Jan. 05, 2019

    Truisms in prose. Short, simple, and nicely done.
  • Free Writer on Jan. 05, 2019

    This has a hidden message for every (would be) writer. Desperate or not, think about what are you willing to give up..If anything. Well done.
  • Stark on Jan. 05, 2019

    This is essentially an introduction to a (pseudo)science of which the author attempts to spread her message about. I tried to verify it, but as of yet am unsuccessful at finding the listed website.
  • Coffee Lovers Live Longer - a humorous take on coffee's surprising health benefits on Jan. 06, 2019

    An enthusiastic and well written admonishment of..what else? Coffee. A short and entertaining read.
  • Seditious Sun on Jan. 06, 2019

    Very interesting. Stylewise, it was almost poetic. Well written and short. This story didn't need characters, as it supported itself.
  • Undead Encounters on Jan. 06, 2019

    Two short stories in this book, 1 Zombie, and 1 Vampire story. The Zombie story was cute and funny. The Vampire story was too average and pointless. 2.75 stars
  • You Are Dying, and your World is a Lie on Jan. 06, 2019

    If you aren't ready for truth-bombs, then don't read this. 4.5 stars
  • The Universe Doesn't Give a Flying Fuck About You on Jan. 06, 2019

    This book is for anyone who needs to be reminded of what to do (or not), during their existence, as well as that what other people think of their decision should mean..nothing, and the only thing that matters is what you think of yourself. In some way, many people could use this book as a (more tangible) guide to live and living than any given religious doctrine. Oops, taking a risk at hurting some feelings, but wtf, that's life. 😀
  • Disobey on Jan. 06, 2019

    This explains a lot of things. Some people may think they're too vested in the "system" and rebel against this. But Mr. Truant makes good explanations/arguments for this view. Read this with an open mind, then make up your mind.
  • Dot Matrix on Jan. 11, 2019

    Well written. Defined plot; and I bet many working people could identify with this.
  • The Downfall: Survive Chronicles #1 on Jan. 11, 2019

    This story is as described. Good descriptions and lots of action from the start.
  • The Stricken on Jan. 19, 2019

    This is a combination zombie/supernatural thriller. For me, it would stand alone as a "very" good Zombie story. The supernatural part is just too much. It sorta confuses me a little because I'm expecting the horde(?) to behave as typical zombies, but they move, and act like normal thinking people​, ie: stalking, running, climbing, using tools, opening doors, etc. The characters and places are well defined. Unfortunately there's no backstory of the main supernatural event. Nevertheless, a good read. A solid 4 stars
  • Emergent on Jan. 19, 2019

    I couldn't stop reading ! Fast paced, exciting, and well scripted. Impressive. Of you like apocolyptic​ stories, this is a must-read ! 5 stars
  • Fevered Hills on Jan. 21, 2019

    Well written, "but".... In the story it isn't clear that Elizabeth's a Witch; nor does it seem the Philosopher's a mad psycho. The flashback's don't always go​together with the main character's predicament; nor is it clear that the "crazed" advancing army is that of Zombies..just crazy people with a crazy leader.
  • The Zombie Knight Saga - Volume One - Elegy for an Immortal on Feb. 09, 2019

    This is a story you want to read all the way through. It keeps one's interest. Well written, good continuity, and different in obvious ways. Five stars
  • Zombie Psychology on March 04, 2019

    I normally don't read YA stories, but I was curious about the title. In a world which apparently is used to zombies, a girl has to manage discouraging her chauvenistic undead ex and his bros. from visiting her. She does this successfully in a comical way. A cute short story.
  • Zombie Variations on March 05, 2019
    (no rating)
    Dark and sad. I'm sure there's a place in this world for these, yet I can't fathom what the author's motivations are.
  • Nano Zombie: Redemption on May 13, 2019

    This is the 2nd installment in this series. Overall, it maintains a continuity between characters. The environmental drastically changes between the two installments, but still easy to follow. Some of the dialogue is a bit unrealistic, otherwise, I won't pick this apart due to the good story. For both books 3.7 stars.
  • Diary of a Zombie Survivor on June 15, 2019

    It is as the title says. More of a diary, and less a story. Confusing at times where it's repetitious, or when the main character talks about a game he's playing, or a book he's reading. You must follow this closely in order to minimize your confusion, or from being lost in the chronicling.
  • The Ultimate Privilege - Book One - BUT WHY...? on Oct. 06, 2019

    This is an odyssey with more characters than you can keep track of. Jus when you think it's clearly about the afterlife, there are two characters who become connected 'telepathicaly?'. The end is a cliffhanger, which effectively becomes anticlimactic. The story has potential. Somewhere it was coming off the rails though.
  • OUTLAST: Geeks Will Gather on Nov. 08, 2019

    From the beginning of the story, it began as a geekalyptic (wet) dream: meaning, it was everything geeks prepared for, then got. But the story was sooo character-heavy that it wasn't always easy to follow. And there were way too 'few' zombies. This made the story a focus heavily on characters, situations, and was borderline braggadocio. Otherwise, well written and entertaining.
  • Dark Resurrection on Nov. 20, 2019

    Sounds like the author has historical/theological background in this subject. That being said, the references are familiar to almost anyone reading this. The only detractor was the Bella Lugosi mention. I agree that a mention of a figure such as Vlad the Impaler would've been more appropriate. Otherwise, the story is solid and the writing is well done! Only religious​ zealots/extremists will take issue with this piece of written freedom of expression and reinterpretation/reimagining. Bravo! 5 Stars !
  • The Aurora Infection on Jan. 15, 2020

    Ughhh...reading this is like listening to words..droning on and on and on and.... couldn’t finish this. Totally uninspiring, uninteresting, and as creative as watching ants. Sorry. It’s time I won’t get back. To the author: be more imaginative, creative, and surprising.
  • Damned Fiction on Feb. 02, 2020

    Anytime a book (film or music) has a disclaimer citing mind-altering characteristics, I don’t want to risk it. This was in the beginning of the book. For me, I’d call it a success (without needing to go further). 3 stars on that principle alone.
  • The Second Gate on Feb. 02, 2020

    The writing (dialogue; structure; spelling) reads like 2 teenage girls. For example, it’s painful to read a dialogue with only two characters, and they have to keep saying each other’s name! I couldn’t get past the writing to see the story.
  • It Happens When You're Alone on Feb. 02, 2020

    The first story has a good premise. The writing is palatable, but the story, which begins with a few subplots, only mildly builds and has a very anticlimactic end.
  • Zombie on April 10, 2020

    This story has no beginning, end or theme.
  • Zombie Crunch on April 10, 2020

    I wanted this story to be good, but it was abbreviated and incomplete.
  • Danny - A V Plague Short Story on April 23, 2020

    SMH (shaking my head).. This story follows a mysagonistic, racist, selfish man in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. This story isn’t helped by the way the plague affects males and females “differently”. Males are slower shambling grunts, while women become as agile as track stars. Although well written, this story doesn’t deserve a sequel.
  • Diary of A Suburban Zombie on April 23, 2020

    I couldn’t enjoy this because I don’t do drugs.
  • Blood Magik: A Cold Day In Hell on April 23, 2020

    Certainly for people into obligatory killing, blood, guts, foul language, etc. “ What is the story about again?”, oh yeah, killing, blood, guts, foul language, etc...
  • Murderer, Assassin, Killer! on May 10, 2020

    What begins as a good title, a seemingly smart premise, and a trickle of character development, ends up letting us down by not developing into a story. This quickly deflates when the author confuses the chauffer's name with the doorman, then totally unravels towards the end with what is just an end. One star for the effort.
  • Just One Last Dungeon on June 03, 2020

    Take it for the name, read & keep it for the story. Well written and entertaining. I’ve read another book by this author, so expected something good. I wasn’t disappointed.
  • A Stormy April Night on June 14, 2020

    It reads like something from “Fright Night”.
  • Before the Cure on July 22, 2020

    SUPERB ! This is the 2nd book I’ve read from Deidre Gould. The story, dialogue, and characters..everything is great! Highly recommend for any fan of this genre!
  • Tourist Season on Aug. 15, 2020

    Good writing and character development, however, the story is predictable.
  • The Ouija App on Aug. 15, 2020

    IMHO, I don’t know how such ‘smart’ people manage to do dumb things. (ie. installing untrusted apps, or not totally destroying a(n obviously) malevolent device. Sorry. Not my kind of story.
  • Therapy on Aug. 15, 2020

    wtf ?
  • The Whetstone Fist - Episode 1 on Aug. 16, 2020

    Nothing at all explains the book’s title. The synopsis is ok, but not entirely accurate. It reads like a cross between a Harry Potter story and a video game. To me, the story could’ve used more original imagination. For example, the “countless monsters” only amounted to some sentient slime, and giant spiders. 🧐 Also, the main character “Locke”, did not have all the benefits of full training for the tasks ahead. The supporting character, “Clare”, repeated this several times. And please clean up the punctuation errors, because sometimes it makes the story more difficult to follow.
  • The Merging on Aug. 22, 2020

    A very nice story actually. Although it feels like it can be in the collections of religious or Christian works. 3.5 étoils
  • Art of War Summary: Read Every Morning - Win All Life’s Competitions - Sun Tzu’s Whole Book in 15 Minutes on Aug. 22, 2020

    With an “in-your-face” style, this isn’t for sensitive people or crybabies. This book is a digest of core values about how to beat an opponent. Although it give militaristic examples, if interpreted properly can apply to nearly any scenario requiring guerilla tactics.
  • The Nasir and Maarika Chronicles Episode V on Aug. 26, 2020

    A good read. Not exactly a “stand-alone” book, so prepare by reading the other works.
  • Ninth Haronizer Episode One: Anzhul on Sep. 03, 2020

    For a 1st episode, it can be confusing. Although characters are detailed, their backgrounds (or prologues) aren’t very clear. Settings and characters are nicely done though.
  • The Heretic: ACT I on Sep. 06, 2020

    Up until the last few pages it felt like I was reading Shakespeare. The dialogue was very eloquent and convoluted for most of the story. It’s easy to get lost if you pause reading. I only got drawn into the story in the last few pages.
  • Hunter's Moon on Sep. 28, 2020

    Well written. Holds the reader’s attention and makes you want to find out more. A good story.
  • The Vampires of Cymru on Oct. 24, 2020

    The backstory was good, but as the story was brought to contemporary times, it got odd. From the apparent reincarnated vampire hunter (with some sort of 6th sense), to the author’s repetitive use of certain words (ie: “upon”), and incantations throughout. For those, it felt like we, the reader, are supposed to internalize it, and perhaps become spellbound. That’s when I quit.
  • Tribes of Decay: The Decaying World Saga Book I on Nov. 14, 2020

    Rarely do I think a book is worth 5 stars, but this story has it all ! A meeting of old world and new, and well done character development ! From beginning to end you (the reader) are drawn into and captivated by the story. A real page turner !
  • Mycophoria on Nov. 24, 2020

    I “rarely” if ever give 5 stars, but this author and his work is superb ! This is an attention holder; page turner; and well rounded and developed story and characters. 👍🏽
  • The Fence on Nov. 30, 2020

    Really good, with a twist at the end. Puts you in mind of “The Village”, by M. Night Shamylam (maybe I messed up his name, but you know who I mean).
  • Help Never Came on Nov. 30, 2020

    This is a good story. The ending could be more interesting. Otherwise.. 👍🏽 I wonder why it’s had no reviews yet.
  • Freshman 15 (When the World Ended and We Were Invaded: Season 1, Episode #1) on Dec. 06, 2020

    Very “cookie cutter” story. Basic zombies, aliens, and characters. Not bad if you like that sort of style.
  • The War On Horror: Tales From A Post-Zombie Society on Feb. 28, 2021

    It seems like almost everyone’s a “loser” in this story..even the main character, except that with an uncanny amount of (dumb) luck, he lives to see another day. The story is extremely well written; from its character developments, to its large and small plots and scenes.
  • Dream Log 2015.09.18.0900 on May 16, 2021

    This is for religious based readers.
  • The Savage God on May 16, 2021

    Well written, engaging, and a short fun read.
