Smashwords book reviews by Rowland Somers

  • Three Very Short Stories on Jan. 01, 2014

    The first surprised me or maybe I misunderstood. Would the police be so calm in questioning an alien? The second and third I really enjoyed.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Jan. 19, 2014

    My wife and I have really enjoyed Book 1 and can't wait until our son is old enough to understand the stories. Looking forward to Book 2.
  • In Extremis on Jan. 19, 2014

    Great story and very well written. Nice and creepy. I'd like to read a longer version too.
  • That Moment... on March 02, 2014

    I'm very pleased this book has been recommended at another website or I may never have looked for it. WOW! My wife tells me about different stories when we wash the dishes together. I have read each and everyone myself but I listen as a good husband does. Very inspiring material. Makes you look at each day a little differently. Even though it has been read several times in our house I find myself frequently going back to read it again. This is a book you would never discard from your e-reader. Couldn't give anything less than 5 stars.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 2 on March 07, 2015

    The second in the series that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. The storyline and the pictures are great. Can't wait until our little boy is old enough to enjoy them too.
  • Sons of Monkeys - A New Study Of The Human Animal By A Down On His Luck Chinaman With A Zoology Degree on March 07, 2015

    I've been picking it up and putting it down for so long it's been frustrating. I finally got to finish it during my holidays. Wonderful book that's simply written so I could understand it. Funny and very clever. I could finally understand what evolution is all about and it did get me thinking. This is a book I will read again.
  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on March 07, 2015

    I have to agree with the other reviewers, it's a great story. The Inspector is an interesting guy that just wants to get the job done. I didn't find it slow at the beginning, it jumped straight into the first five murders. I like the way the Inspector handles things as the story moves along. Easy to read with no bog down which is what I like. Great story and a few surprises and shocks. Very funny in parts and serious in others. I recommend this read.
  • Grave Misgivings on May 21, 2015

    Dark tales and strange happenings. Weird neighbours and peculiar people. This anthology has everything. Each story has it's own spooky appeal. Looking forward to more from this author. (Will read Noah Quince on the weekend) looking forward to that.
  • The Weekends of Sally Virtue. May & June on May 21, 2015

    Dear Lord! this is so funny Linda. I guess you must have a terrific sense of humour to come up with this. My wife made me stop reading because she was hurting herself laughing and I admit struggling to read it to her. Good little afternoon read.
  • Noah Quince on May 25, 2015

    What a SOB. This guy doesn't know how to treat women or when he could get lucky. Ok, I admit his neighbour is a queen but he's good to Noah and just wants to help out. It's not like he's hitting on him. Noah is a creepy guy, no wonder they talk about him at the office. I agree he definitely has mental issues and he knows he's not a good looking guy but there were women that were willing to take him on! Spooky guy. I enjoyed this book and am also looking forward to reading more from this author.
