Smashwords book reviews by Amy VanHym

  • Girl on a Train, No. 1 in the 'Tempted by Her Student' series (lesbian erotica) on Jan. 22, 2013

    I hate to say it but, like its title, this story is somewhat lackluster. It has an awkward narrative style. Tension in the narrative is often swiftly undermined by the phrasing, which tends to overstate the obvious. And what's with all the parentheses? They're used far too often for a piece of fiction, and are frequently used improperly. The lead, Bella, sees no problem at all in cheating on her husband. She doesn't even give the ethics of her choice any thought. Such a dilemma could have been a great avenue for developing tension and exploring Bella's character, but it went unused. Over all, I found it very difficult to get a sense of the characters' personalities. They failed to talk about, or even think about, anything interesting. By the time the sex came around, I found it difficult to care what happened. I apologize for the negativity in my review, but I do think it's more important to be honest.

    I must confess, I judged this book by its cover, and for whatever reason I got the impression that it would be poorly written or that it would try too hard. Lesson learned -- I was completely wrong. This was adorable, fun, lighthearted, clever and welcoming to read. The abrupt ending disappointed me, but this story succeeds in showcasing the quality and style of Aussiescribbler's writing. I look forward to reading more from this author.
