Smashwords book reviews by Icy Rivers

  • Keeping On Keeping On---27---Uruguay---Punta Arenas, Chile---Antarctica I! on June 09, 2016

    very nice travel book with excellent photos of Antarctica--recommended
  • The Pea on June 09, 2016

    short novelette by secret, a gent, investigating a pea, perhaps a Liverpool football club mascot--entertaining
  • Jonah and the Whale on July 06, 2016

    the annotations of historical truth or the belief in the ultimate truth of the Jonah legend, is worth the price of this book
  • The Greatest Poem Ever Written, and Other Poems on July 17, 2016

    this outstanding book of poems, most previously published in print publications, and small literary magazines, does indeed have The Greatest Poem Ever Written in it, or, that's the name of the poem, and a rose is a rose is a rose.
  • Balboa and the Cyborg on July 19, 2016

    Kind of a graphic novel science fiction love story, with outrageous poetry by the Cyborg girl's new boyfriend, Balboa. Seriously amusing.
  • The Austen Avenger on July 19, 2016

    Tara, whoever she is, takes no prisoners. She just lets them run wild on the pages of her ebooks. I'm glad I discovered this author, and the amazing "Party Overkill" book, where the narrator searches for an alleyway to duck into, only to find the buildings stacked closer than piles of newspapers in a hoarder's house. Amazing.
  • No Time To Die on Sep. 29, 2016

    A truly dark noir detective mystery, in the style of Dashiell Hammett, Mickey Spillane, and Ross Macdonald, but not at all artificial, like Sherlock Holmes can be. Hard, almost perhaps impossible to solve.
  • The Volunteers on Sep. 29, 2016

    Very fast moving, straight talking high school angst, with bullies, first love, sports, literature, poetry, plus fun to read. Serious teen rom com, if there is such a thing. Recommended.
  • Art eBook on Sep. 29, 2016

    Not many of these here. A light, sardonic retrospective of an artist's career. Something to commiserate with, if you're an artist. The hard knocks. Nice oil paintings.
  • Basketball Gods: A Short Story on Oct. 21, 2016

    This is an outstanding novelette, even though I'm not all that sure what it's about. I'm pretty dumb that way, just stupid enough to write idiot books like, "Fast Break Basketball For Kids." So, I found this book when I was looking for a basketball story, and it fit the bill well. It had "horse," kind of like "out's" which can be played with, or without the apostrophe. This is a heavy book, by a terrific writer. Recommended.
  • Full Body Replacement on Jan. 22, 2017

    One surprise after another, this magic realism novel mixes fantasy and science fiction yet is realistic at all times, that is, if you can suspend disbelief about switching bodies. Recommended.
  • Girls On Different Planets on Jan. 22, 2017

    A classic of its kind, a space based political epic, yet deep down, just a simple love story.
  • Rip on Jan. 22, 2017

    Truly a literary fictional landmark, a reprise of Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle" story, here, the theme is updated, with Vladimir Nobokov and Lolita making an appearance.
  • Poetry Pics on Jan. 26, 2017

    Yes, finally, my troubled mind is eased up a bit. These poems and photos are very inspiring.
  • Robin d'Hood on Jan. 26, 2017

    I really like this exotic, romantic comedy, time travel ebook, set in Europe, either in the fifteen hundreds, or 2095, or both. Recommended. Features John Blandly regulars, Jill and Gigi.
  • Leap Year, or, Jack and the Fish on Feb. 10, 2017

    This is a slightly different fantasy romance. It has a slight biblical reference to Samuel, when Samuel thinks his grandfather has woken him up at night, but it turns out to be God who is speaking to him. Here, there is another kind of biblical reference as well, that of Jonah and the whale. The main thing, however, is the love story. Recommended.
  • The Pennsylvania Pickle on Feb. 10, 2017

    This was an excellent book. Very funny. The formatting can be fixed. Humor writers are rare.
  • The Fan on Feb. 21, 2017

    Stephen King may have written the definitive "fan" book, but this novelette is just as good. A light literary jaunt. Recommended.
  • Margie on Feb. 21, 2017

    Kind of a romp, but in the light memoir variety, yet we don't know how autobiographical this humorous series of stories is. Nice. Liked it. A favorite.
  • New & Easy Poems on March 13, 2017

    A whopper of a collection of interesting poems, recommended, for the serious reader who likes a laugh now and then, or a lot.
  • Campfire Story on March 17, 2017

    A light romance novelette, full of surprises, about two guys who meet a couple of girls on the Mass Pike and decide to go camping with them. Recommended.
  • How Diarmuid Got His Love-Spot on March 17, 2017

    This is a light hearted romantic fantasy, apparently based on an ancient Irish myth. Amusing. Recommended, especially today, St. Patrick's Day.
  • Pauline & Melissa on May 29, 2017

    pretty scary young adult mystery set on the coast of Maine--a runaway Hollywood actress and an albino gangster
  • Credits Universitaires on May 29, 2017

    an unusual novelette about lawyers in love, legal careers, and law firm politics--recommended
  • Balboa y el Cyborg (Espanol) on May 29, 2017

    el libro es muy bonito--me gusto el libro--muy romantico
  • Fogueira Historia (Portuguese) on May 29, 2017

    bom dia por amigos--amor, amor, amor
  • Poems and Pics on June 02, 2017

    A different sort of poetry collection--humorous poems and photos of attractive women--must be what Blandly likes--recommended.
  • dMAC Digest Vol 7 No 1A - History Behind the Lindisfarne Gospels on June 03, 2017

    an excellent book--very interesting--I have read John Blandly's books on Bede, Caesar, and his versions of King Arthur's tales, as well as modern versions of Irish myths, like "How Diamuid Got His Love Spot," and am very interested in early British and Irish history, and the Celts in general--this fascinating book uncovers many details of Northern England, at the time it was being converted to Christianity. Highly recommended.
