Smashwords book reviews by Perry Burchard

  • My Pal The Bug #1: For They Know Not... on Aug. 20, 2010

    This was a fun piece. I'm all for mixing mysticism with guns! I'd have given it five stars if they could have shot up the monks.
  • Ms Fixit on Aug. 20, 2010

    Very brief, with a nice concept, though the midstream POV shift threw me off. Perhaps a section break was in order, though it might be too short of a piece for that. Watch out for passive descriptions in the opening paragraphs.
  • Rick's Hostage on Aug. 20, 2010

    I really like this story, but maybe my perspective is skewed by that affair I had a couple of years ago. I found myself wondering how the confrontation in the opening scene came about, but not so intensely that I couldn't enjoy the gritty taste of it in my mouth.
  • Bunnies on Aug. 20, 2010

    Great characters and buildup, tapping into how crappy kids are to each other and fears of critters. I wasn't too crazy about half the story centering on Katarina and half on Brendan, and there were a few typos, such as 'breath' where 'breathe' was intended. I think a leaner, 3500-word version would do the trick more effectively, but overall I enjoyed reading it--most importantly, I finished!
  • Traffic Control on Aug. 27, 2010

    I had a hard enough time putting it down that I got it read in a day... Alternatively gritty and humorous. Made construction seem more interesting than I thought it would be. I like how the bad guy is not necessarily evil, but someone who is a bit of a jerk that makes bad decisions any of us could make if they feel threatened. I don't know if I buy the whole courtroom surprise in the middle, but he's past it so fast and on to the consequences that it didn't bother me. I also would have liked for him to get more into Carl's days as a musician--he lifted the cover of the box for a peek but didn't throw it all the way open. Overall, a good, quick read as far as novels go--though I normally like a little more sex and drugs with my rock n' roll.
