Smashwords book reviews by Leslie Lee

  • Anna, Wake Up on Dec. 23, 2009

    Anna, Wake Up is a gritty view of domestic violence that rewards the reader with a glimpse of the power needed to escape and move on. There is a spiritual element that provides both mystery and interest. A very good story, well worth reading. I highly recommend it.
  • The First Tale on Nov. 02, 2010

    Buy it. The First Tale is a fun read by icy Sedgwick. The story moves fast providing quick turns and jolts. She has created a world I hope she will continue to explore and reveal to us what she has found. Her characters are enjoyable, the setting intriguing, the plot suspenseful. There are many questions left, leaving me wanting more. I am glad she did not mire the story in details, yet I hope she does flesh out her world if she chooses to revisit in subsequent books. Well worth reading.
  • The King of Cherokee Creek on April 18, 2012

    For The King of Cherokee Creek, Marian Allen has written an anthology mostly about the town of Cherokee Creek and its inhabitants. The town is a bit of our nation most people will recognize and feel comfortable with. But in this slice of Americana, stories run deep, people are not as we expect. The author opens our eyes to possibilities. In our eternal need to categorize everything, I would place this anthology on the magical realism of everyday life shelf. Or maybe in the just plain good fun reading section. Marian Allen evokes the characters in her story with an easy but incisive phrase or two. For example, “She had never seen her lift her feet except to step onto or over something but the woman shuffled faster than a pig could trot.” It’s a lovely phrase. There are more thankfully, though the author is restrained and subtle in her use, allowing the narrative and plot to take center stage. Her dialogue of this midwest town is authentic. Well, authentic enough for me to think that is how people speak there. For all I know, people in small midwest towns speak Eskimo. You’ll like the characters you meet here, care for their trials and tribulations, and be intrigued by the thin thread of magic weaving through each of the stories. And you get a bonus story at the end that’s very funny. Buy it, read it, enjoy it, and hope that Marian Allen will continue to tell us the stories of Cherokee Creek and its King. Looking forward to hearing more from Bud.
  • Those Dang Chihuahuas! on Dec. 11, 2013

    A fun fantasy by an up and coming author, the story ranges far and wide with creativity and excitement. I enjoyed the little twists and turns that this young author's fertile imagination displays. I’m going to be following her growth and enjoying her stories.
