Smashwords book reviews by Lea Ryan

  • The Chronicles of a Lost Soul on Dec. 20, 2010

    This is a really good collection of short stories. I'm not going to go through every story individually because we'll be here all day. In various parts of the book, the writing style was reminiscent of King, Poe, or Dante. The book had everything from philosophy to suspense to creepiness to humor to goriness. One thing I really noticed was the author's ability to alter his 'voice'. The stories were each written in a distinct manner. There were only a couple parts of the book that I didn't love. One of them was a story told from a dog's perspective.
  • Allesandra's Bequest on March 31, 2012

    Allesandra is haunted by her traumatic childhood and the death of her sister. She tries to get past the pain, even finding love, but is unable to find a way out other than death. This story is told in a nonlinear format. It begins with Allesandra battling her inner demons and her suicide, then jumps back to when she met her husband and goes from there. As her struggle evolves, we see it from both her perspective and her husband’s. Allesandra’s Bequest is a tragic story without many moments of hope. It’s a very dark and emotional work that’s well written. Interspersed throughout are song lyrics, which break up the story nicely.
