Smashwords book reviews by Robert Williams

  • Closing My Eyes Helps Me To See Clearly on June 16, 2010

    This is a fascinating and poetic story, short but multilayered. It can't really be described in terms of having a plot. It is more of a series of images strung together in a stream of consciousness narrative. Not perfect, but captivating, and leaves you thinking about what it means for a long time afterward. The beautiful imagery creates a powerful impact. Highly recommend for lovers of thoughtful, experimental prose.
