Smashwords book reviews by SharonJM

  • Huckleberry Finn on Jan. 28, 2015

    I enjoyed the book as a child, and understood it well then. But maybe this version will help slower readers. I can hardly tell the difference between this version (with its lower vocabulary) and the original. A nice read, and it's good that others in this generation may be discovering it too.
  • The Liberator - part 1 on Jan. 28, 2015

    What a great idea! Why didn't someone think of doing this ages ago?
  • The Liberator - part 2 on Jan. 28, 2015

    All that could be said in favour of part 1 would relate here too. Excellent!
  • A Tale of Two Cities on Jan. 28, 2015

    I read this one as a child too, and had a terrible job trying to follow the plot. Maybe it's because I'm older, but this translation also seems to simplify Dickens' rather lengthy sentences. Well done.

    I don't necessarily agree with all that is said in this book, but it puts forward some pretty amazing hypotheses. Fiction, yeah, but very plausible too.
