Smashwords book reviews by Mike Diehm

  • The Poison Fits your Skin on Oct. 06, 2012

    A chilling read. Some of these poems really hit home with me. Thanks for the honor.
  • In My Songs on Oct. 10, 2012

    Compelling songs and well-thought-out arrangements. Got a lot going on here.
  • The Glass Key: A Modern Folktale on Dec. 09, 2012

    The Glass Key had me from the start. It is a well written "Modern Folktale". Did I say well written? Yes, Benjamin Parsons is an excellent writer. And what a tale! Very refreshing.
  • The Monument: a ghost story on Dec. 13, 2012

    Benjamin Parsons' "The Monument A Modern Folktale" is well worth the read! I'm an avid reader of classics and literature. I enjoy books that contain sentences or phrases which need to be dwelled upon because they either have an excellent rhythym or are simply beautifully written. This book falls into that catagory for me. Kudos, and thanks for making this book free.
  • The Drowned Sailor on Dec. 13, 2012

    An epic tale. Benjamin Parsons' books will certainly stand the test of time.
  • The Castaway: a modern folktale on Dec. 13, 2012

    Very refreshing. A well-told story. I tend to get "stuck" on an author. When I do I read everything by him/her. I'm stuck on Benjamin Parsons. Thank you sir, for sharing your top-notch writings!
