Smashwords book reviews by Robinson Mason

  • Two Old Boots and a Backpack on Sep. 23, 2012

    Reading this book was a real treat since I tend to get quite sick on first time trips to distant lands. In Two Old Boots and a Backpack I was able to join the author of this book on a wild ride under thundering falls on a dangerous rubber dingy, taste exotic foods that tempt and nauseate, and feel the strain of tired legs hiking up a cold mountain -- all without leaving the comfort of my Texas home. And those are only a tiny fraction of the experiences detailed in this book that reads a bit like a novel in spots. You'll also read tales of intriguing historical spots and figures like Evita and Butch Cassidy, along with some less famous but unexpectedly charming characters like a Welsh grandmother, a man with the unlikely name of Lancelot, and a butter snatching parrot. Wendy has a gift for bringing her travels to life, and I look forward to reading where those "old boots" might travel next.
  • Save Me, Rip Orion on Oct. 22, 2012

    Colorful characters, unexpected twists and turns, and vivid descriptions fill a book in which things are not always what they might seem at first. Join the motley cast of Save Me, Rip Orion and you are sure to be entertained. The author has a knack for descriptions that alone would have been good enough to keep me turning the pages. I could feel the rubber grip on a golf club or a cold beer resting on a belly. Looking forward to seeing more from Mr. Bower in the future.
  • Always on Nov. 04, 2012

    Always is an enjoyable journey, one that takes some surprising twists and turns. Just when I had settled into the colorful and playful lives of Simon and April I was thrown back to a darker and deadlier past with seemingly unrelated characters. "Seemingly," because the stories are actually nicely interwoven as you jump from one environment to the next. This is a rare book that makes me want to go back and read it again to find all of the connections I likely missed the first time around. Since it is hard not to like the characters in Always, I'm sure it won't be long until I do just that. I hope to see more like this from DM Yates in the future.
