The pen name I use is a translation from French. I'm a native New Yorker, but now call the world my home, and am accustomed to frequent travelling.
Although I'm a published Author of a Zombie story, I've not yet published here at Smashwords, but I intend to.
I write honest reviews of what I read here as much as possible, and hope when I begin publishing my other works here, others will reciprocate.

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.
  • Today is Not on Dec. 27, 2018

    I have no words..But, WTF did I just read? This sounds like it's from a dark, twisted place. Barely makes any sense. Sorry.
  • 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 !
  • The Symbiot: Not All Truths Will Set You Free on Jan. 02, 2019

    An incredible journey through the metaphysical veil ! Outstanding !
  • 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 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. ūüėÄ
  • 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.
  • Darkest Matter on Jan. 07, 2019

    This reads like it was made for a peotry "slam", or a "speak easy", and is being delivered by a depressed person, mental patient, or goth girl. It's good if you like that sort of thing. Writing, grammar, and composition..5 stars Content..3 stars Undeniably well done, just not for me.
  • Spiral Circles on Jan. 11, 2019

    Full of bad cliches, characters, and storyline. No plot either. I thought it would be entertaining and fun(ny). Nuff said.
  • 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 Chant on Jan. 11, 2019

    Makes college sound like a cult. Undeniably well written. Too bad it had no other sense of closure. It insisted on itself. Nevertheless, good. 4.75 stars
  • 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‚Äč, 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‚Äč 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‚Äčtogether 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.
  • EVAC : Zombie Apocalypse on Jan. 22, 2019

    Not how one pictures a zombie apocalypse. The storytelling style is like many short sentences. This gives the impression of incomplete thoughts, or bad writing. I wanted to get into it, but only became more detached. Couldn't finish reading it. 1.5 star
  • Terror of the Long-Distance Runner on Feb. 06, 2019

    A good read. Most of the 'terror' described was more akin to losing a race. Luckily this had the added thrill of a zombie chasing the runner (for a good cause). For the fun, I read the included preview of a second work by the author. Not worth it. It always amazes me that characters who are suddenly experiencing a bizzare event would behave almost casually..even if a familiar member is obviously dead with knives sticking out her back. It's not, dark humor, or weird fiction..just ridiculous. Rating for the first story 'only'...3.75 stars
  • The Moctezuman on Feb. 09, 2019

    Very entertaining and well written. It reads as described. An obvious accomplished author. Solid 5 stars
  • 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.
