Smashwords book reviews by Edna Curry

  • The Ascent on July 22, 2011

    I received a free review copy of this book. I was intrigued by the premise and enjoyed the story whether or not it's supposed to be true. However, it badly needed editing. The writing would have been so much more interesting and readable, had it not been written in the active vs passive tense.
