Smashwords book reviews by Sandra Rector

  • Living for Damn Near Ever with the #%@&*! Dog on Feb. 27, 2012

    I laughed out loud reading this story. I understand perfectly. Thanks for the smiles and good luck.
  • Finnegan's Quest on Sep. 27, 2012

    So much to enjoy about this book. First there is a lot to learn about life as the main character goes on a quest to find a guru. What he learns along the way is extremely valuable. Second, this book has a beautiful, original, poetic quality in the descriptions of the natural world and third, it was just plain fun to read as the author did a great job of describing each animal's unique personality. A great book to read out loud to a young person and if you're an older person, a good book to read to yourself.
