Smashwords book reviews by Ina Disguise

  • Gatecrasher on Sep. 21, 2013

    Nice atmospherics, nice macro pacing. Micro pacing could use some crafting. Overall evidence of serious future talent. Like me, this author needs a reader. Otherwise, nice job on what could have been a hackneyed story.
  • A Voyage Of Self Discovery on Sep. 21, 2013

    Charming and very readable memoir - well worth a read. Easy conversational style without too much added pzazz. A book for relaxing with.
  • Horse's Ass on Sep. 21, 2013

    Really nice characterisation, good story development - might make it easier for less able readers to split the paragraphs a little but overall well above average piece of work - right up my alley!
  • Sellebrity on Sep. 21, 2013

    Beautifully written.
  • Jogging Along on Sep. 22, 2013

    Neatly captured the mundanity of office life and difference in the attitude towards overweight men to overweight women eg. your friends tell you to take up a sport rather than telling you you should hide because you are socially unacceptable and altogether hideous. Well written and nicely paced. For me, could have done with a tiny bit more introspection at the beginning to really make me care about the person but as a stream of thought development - it worked very well.
  • The Opportunities of Youth on Sep. 22, 2013

    A very masculine read - more emotional development of the characters beyond how many children they have would make it more accessible for female readers. Apart from that, nicely drawn and being used to male interpretations of 'economotion' I would read more from this author.
  • The Hill on Sep. 22, 2013

    As a non parent - I appreciated the fact that almost everything is dictated by an attached child however, a break in the narrative for character development independent of family would have made this more readable in the early pages. Having said that - overall this conveyed implicit emotion in the course of the action and so i have to say it was well handled and described the difficulties of parenthood very well. Really enjoyed the use of technology and pants.
  • I Might As Well Because I Have No Choice on Sep. 22, 2013

    I really like your writing voice, but a less trained reader would be confused at some of the erratic punctuation and might not realise it is colloquial charm - if I was you i would do one of three things - either add more punctuation, get an editor to do it for you or make the voice/accent even stronger - dropping Gs etc eg. drippin' instead of dripping to strengthen the effect. At the moment you seem a bit shy and are half writing conventionally and half in your excellent voice - and if I was you I would emphasise the voice because it works really well.
  • In The Park on June 11, 2015

    Nice story, look forward to seeing future developments
  • No Shades of Grey on Nov. 04, 2015

    I get the impression that this author kind of disapproves of bdsm?The paperback would make a charming gift. The online reader does not work with the formatting.
  • 猫と蛙 Cat and Frog on Sep. 07, 2017

    This story was fun, but being unable to advertise because you have less than four stars is even more fun......
  • Misfortunes' Windfall on Sep. 08, 2017

    I get the impression that this author should stop trying to review people's work if he doesn't make any effort to understand it in context.
