Smashwords book reviews by BALLARD MATTINGLY

  • The Perfect Lover on Nov. 17, 2010
    (no rating)
    This book was well written and easy to follow. It addressed many issues with style and a bit of imagination. My only problem with the book is I cannot relate. I am a 30 year old man with a 13 year marriage and two young children, because of this I don't believe the book was written with me in mind. I believe this book is better suited for women who may hate the central character but will be able to relate.
  • Dirty Little Angels on Dec. 01, 2010

    Dirty Little Angels is a moving story following a teenage girl in Louisiana. From the start of the book until the end the author brings you through the story with the teenagers point of view and even her accent coming through the writing. Some parts of the story where treated a little to litely such as her loss of virginity and the betrayel of her best friend. Overall the story was good and caused me to continue reading. I believe the ending could have been postponed until a better conclusion was reached but I do give this book 4 stars.
  • Ella and the Panther's Quest on Dec. 26, 2010

    Ella and the Panthers quest is a touching story of a lonely women who falls into a mirror and decides to have an improbable adventure. As Ella slowly comes to know the talking panther she is helping, she learns of a compassionate and strong leader who only wants to help his people live right. This story is surprisingly engaging and entertaining, I recommend to anybody that would like a quick fantasy story.

    This is a cute story that delves into the beginning of Halloween. The story puts a nice new spin onto an old holiday without trampling any of the modern legends but still adds a nice love story gone bad. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to more writings of this author.
