Smashwords book reviews by Mike Gleeson

  • Oasis on April 04, 2015

    Oasis has a cheerful, feel-good quality, which is good for a story that's basically morbid. Quite a page-turner. The characters weren't described in sufficient detail for my liking, but describing them in more detail would have slowed down the tempo as the story is fast-moving. The characters still come alive enough in spite of that. My favourite one is Samson and it's a shame the zombies seem to have got him, but I haven't read the sequel yet--maybe there's some hope for him. Another thing I liked--there were no F-words or C-words and no explicit sex. A breath of fresh air these days. Would appreciate a return read for my first novel.
