Smashwords book reviews by Richard C. Parr

  • The Hole Between Mine and Yours: Liquid Logic from a Dirty Tumbler on Oct. 07, 2011

    From 'Wet' with its beautiful contradictions and past tenses and clever usage of changing vowels to 'nights' become 'notes' and 'ride' become 'rode', to the poem 'education' with its hexameter rhythm and its harrowing tale of emotional self-infliction, guilt and withholding senses (for example 'and there we sit on horse, astride / oblivious of how to ride' describes for me attempting to do something blind or how we have the tools of life but lack the ability to use them) Christina brilliantly portrays the human condition. With the usage of pleasantly flowing rhyming techniques and life's multiple themes, she takes the reader into her world of observation. Though I would have enjoyed more variation of poetry, for example villanelles, sonnets or even shape poems, Christina has perfected the art of flowing stanzas. It's a great read and I'd definitely recommend Christina's work. Well done.
  • John and the People of the Earth on Feb. 05, 2015

    An excellent surreal, chaotic and humorous story with shades of graphic imagery and a fast-paced flow. From the very beginning Christopher expertly plunges the reader into Marion's suddenly permanently altered world.
