Smashwords book reviews by Greeenie

  • Punch and Parry on Nov. 18, 2016

    Lucky day for me. I'm a bit tired of the technothrillers (though I really enjoy them) you know the books by Tom Clancy and Brad Thor? The books that put you in the middle of an international incident. And there's some really smart spies, Navy Seals and politicians taking great risk to save the planet and ensure freedom. Those books? Well this isn't one of those and that's why I like it. This books has military guys out on the most lonely outpost on the planet, fighting for our freedom, etc. But this is different because it's real. We have real guys here and they are really smart spies, they are CIA operatives. The nice thing about this story is it feels way more real that those fat novels by Clancy and Thor. This story feels like it was written by someone who has actually been out there on the border of bum-fuck Waziristan. This is a fun yet serious short read.
  • Lost Sunshine on Nov. 18, 2016

    Dark . . . . very . . . . dark, and yet somehow not too dark. Just enough redemption to keep me hanging on by my fingernails.
  • The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success on Nov. 18, 2016

    I will enjoy marketing my ebooks more than I will enjoy formatting them. Marketing sounds fun and creative, according to this book it's a lot of socializing and social networking.
  • Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story on Nov. 18, 2016

    This story swings from moments of utter terror to comical confrontations between Navy officers and the crew. Well worth the read. I learned a lot of interesting things about what goes on among the guys working on the flight deck of a Navy ship.
  • The Pirate on Sep. 04, 2018

    LA skate punk joins the Coast Guard, looks good in uniform, but deep down he's still a crooked punk. Every move he thinks he's getting over but he's just getting deeper and deeper into trouble. It's actually funny to be on the outside of this story looking in, because this is so believable. Should be made into a movie or a Netflix/Hulu special.
  • Seeking My Fortune on Sep. 04, 2018

    The author has all rough draft pieces for a true adventure-thriller but the descriptions are needed to put the reader into the scene.
  • A Ditty Bag of Navy Poems on Sep. 04, 2018

    I had this on my phone for several years, read bits and pieces here and there. Many of the little stories inside these poems have stayed with me. The author has a real knack for capturing the side glances in life, especially as they pertain to a sailor in the Navy aboard ship and in ports overseas.
