Smashwords book reviews by WGACA

  • Breakfast is Severed on Aug. 07, 2015

    The author clearly demonstrates the fact that it is a dog-eat-dog world, but it takes cooperation to survive and succeed. In my humble opinion this short story and its big brother, Society for Supper, have all the elements required to literally own the Thriller & Suspense category here on Smashwords.
  • Society for Supper on Aug. 07, 2015

    This is a great Thriller & Suspense story from beginning to end. The author sets up the plot with well-drawn characters and cranks up the thrills from one scene to the next. You can read the free story, Breakfast is Severed, to check out the author's style and sample this dystopian future.
  • Pirate Ghost Ships on Dec. 18, 2015

    The author has a great imagination but needs to add details to make this story whole. This reads like ideas for a story not an actual story. What's here is ok but needs more to make it work.
  • Tell the Octopus, and Other Short Stories on Dec. 18, 2015

    This book is full of colorful short stories that pop with fresh language. The original and kooky characters are involved in plots full of weird twists.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Dec. 18, 2015

    This is a well written and wonderfully illustrated story of a boy living in a magical forest. Many good life lessons about growing up with values are embedded in the story. This one includes all the titles in the series.
  • Ruck Nor on Dec. 18, 2015

    Decent start to this series now I'm off to read book 2.
  • The Ant And The Man on Dec. 18, 2015

    A positive message with a confusing twist. Interesting, I think but not quite sure.
  • Ruck Nor 2 on Dec. 18, 2015

    A quick read that was fun and interesting. Sci-fi twists around what seems to be an alien abduction.
  • The Golden Hall on Dec. 18, 2015

    This little book of poetry shows what an amazing thing Smashwords really is. I mean, to find a book of excellent poetry like this on here for free, and simply click on it and it opens and it's there to read . . . is absolutely amazing. Wow, modern technology. Seriously though, the rhyming couplets, the grand and timeless images, the beauty evoked in these poems are truly wonderful. I'm not a poetry critic for that matter, but I have read widely and love both popular fiction and the classics and all I can say is the poems in this book are wonderful. One sad thing though, some other author who is trying to climb to the top of the Smashwords "highest rated" list will probably put a 4-star rating on this book eventually just to knock it off the list because it's free. Sad, but true. The author should charge 99c for this book because it's worth it and having a price on it will prevent some idiot indie author from dropping a 'less than 5 star' review on it just to knock it back to number 5972 on the highest rated list. Peace.
  • Asgard tales from the Golden Hall. on Dec. 18, 2015

    Another great book of epic poems by Gary Mark Lee. If you like Medieval tales of knights, Norsemen, dragons, serpents, quests, battles, all told in heroic rhymes, then this is the book of poems for you.
  • Yo Mama Jokes Bible: Funny & Hilarious Yo Mama Jokes on Dec. 19, 2015

    Pretty much what you would expect. Probably 5-stars if you are into Yo mama jokes.
  • Sweet Bird on Dec. 19, 2015

    These poems range from serious political and religious themes to lighthearted observations about daily life to deep contemplation on about family, love and death. Some nice rhymes and images.
  • Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story on Dec. 19, 2015

    Read it if you want a story that is well told and suspenseful. It really took me by surprise. It has a great main character, a gripping plot and full of thrills. Well written. I don't usually read military stuff because it's usually about men shooting at each other . . . but not this one.
  • Beyond the End of the World, Lokians 1 on Jan. 24, 2017

    It read like a bunch of star trek stuff. The writing was and high tech, but it wasn't really a cohesive story, more like a few disjointed short stories stuffed into a book. It was a swing and a miss for me.
  • A life with no Light and Other Stories on Jan. 27, 2017

    Scary and kind of freaky quick reads if you like a mix of horror and scifi.
  • Ulysses' Great Adventure on Jan. 27, 2017

    A nice episode in the tales of Brave Ulysses and as it should be full of adventure and heroics.
  • Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story on Jan. 28, 2017

    This story introduced a few very interesting characters and then cranked up the action to an explosive climax. A original story that read quickly and let me wanting more.
  • Smashwords Book Marketing Guide on Jan. 28, 2017

    Very interesting approaches to marketing. Many of the tips and tricks can be used to market lots of things online, not just books. Could use an update on social media networking.
  • The Dark Soul on Jan. 28, 2017

    I agree with the other review on here. This is like the Frankenstein story with a dash of humor. Well told, my friend.
  • Searching for the Tree of Life on Jan. 28, 2017

    The author has a great imagination and uses sweeping, colorful and action packed scenes. The characters are well suited to fantasy and adventure.
