Smashwords book reviews by Rex Grating

  • Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story on July 30, 2015

    My husband and I had the opportunity to hear this young man read from one of his books at the public library. The story he read was quite well written, so when he told us about this story on smashwords, I decided to read it. After reading it, I am quite impressed with Mr. Torres as an author. He creates characters you can see and they are easy to care about instantly. Very quickly, Mr Torres put the story in motion with tense action and conflict. Throughout the telling of this tale I felt I was in the hands of a master story teller. Very impressed!
  • The Pirate on March 16, 2018

    I read this author's previous story and enjoyed it quite a bit. So, I decided to give this a read. I was pulled into the lives of the characters. This story is intended for someone much younger than me, though. A teen or twenty-something will truly enjoy it. It includes serious crime, drug use and an unwanted pregnancy. The treatment of everything goes between deadly serious and hilarious from one page to the next, and quite often swing between the two in the space of a paragraph. It seems the author does not blink when facing situations that would scare the whits out of most of us.
  • How I Met My Husband: The Real-Life Love Stories of 25 Romance Authors on March 16, 2018

    The best thing is that you can sample writing from many different authors because this is full of short stories written by many different authors. A wonderful sampler. I plan to followup and read several of these authors' other works.
  • Ragnarok on March 17, 2018

    Gary Mark Lee is a great poet. As the description states, these poems are like stories that take you to ancient lands where heroic warriors battle monsters and rescue fair maidens. As a fan of adventure thrillers, I really enjoyed this one.
  • Insider’s Guide to Passing a Drug Test on March 24, 2018

    The tips in this book can be very helpful. Now with weed being legal in WA, OR, CA & CO there are many people who are smoking it daily. The problem is that weed is still illegal by federal law, so employers still pop people for smoking weed and fire them. This book (though it needs to be updated to 2018 standards and methods) can help prevent people from getting fired from work.
