Smashwords book reviews by Linda Hamonou

  • The Whale Whisperers of Ensorclea on Aug. 04, 2014

    This book is awesome. This book is amazing in many ways. It takes you to a world where two sorts of people reside. The firsts are the local of the planet, they hold the keys to mysterious secrets. On their side are the whale whisperers. The seconds are the alien, who came from a world they already destroyed with technology and are about to do the same here. On their side is the King of the empire. This book is filled with wisdom on both sides of the story. It's not only a political story, it's also a sort of detective story about a murder case. There are so many things happening that you can never get bored with it and you have to keep on turning the pages. The characters are delightful and the scenery is vibrant. Seriously, go grab it.
  • Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer on Sep. 10, 2014

    Nathan Miller has a secret and he is not ready to let anyone know what happened, which makes him an unreliable narrator, which means, for you as a reader, that he is going to bullshit you to no end to protect his own ass. But the problem is, that, like all liars the more they talk, the more they betray themselves and slip information that they shouldn't have. Even though I liked the concept and that it was nicely pulled out, one thing that bugged me was that the information he lets slip out is by itself a bit inconsistent as is it was more lies and I'm kept on hoping that it would all make sense at the end and somehow I still have questions. Even when you know everything things still don't add up. I think part of them would be answered in book 2 of the series as Caitlin seems to be more able to relate things efficiently for the reader. Another thing that annoyed me in this book was that a lot seemed unrealistic mostly due to the underdevelopment of most of the characters. Let's face it Nathan is only preoccupied for himself and Caitlin but I still believe the story would have been a better if the other characters had some sort of reactions or feelings that were actually explored. I'm not going to make a complete, but just imagine a second, your children have been threatened by terrorists and your daughter disappear and she is sent to you bit by bit by mails. How would you react? Personally, I don't have children, but I would think I would freak out. Well Nathan's parents think that she would show up eventually because she always does. I wondered if that was Nathan bullshitting me again, but most of the secondary characters react this way. It's a bit like the entire world has stopped and only Nathan has feeling for Caitlin. Part of the action also made me cringe as not possible, but once again as it's Nathan telling you that there is no way to know what really happened. Nathan is creepy to no end and I hated his sorry, guilty ass right from the begging. I personally wouldn't like him anywhere close to me. Not I have some prejudices against nice and helpful people.
  • Murder at Malenfer on Oct. 07, 2014

    This book is everything at once: an historical novel, a romance, a ghost story, a mystery and a story of a man who overcome his past, guilt and trauma. There is a lot to learn from this book and it was a really good and pleasant read. I was really fond of the main character Dermot for being himself despite adversity. I liked Sophie for being weak, Simonne for being different, Madame for acting as expected, Emile for being the nice twin, Arthur for being alive even as a dead man. And I hated Crevel, Pierre and Gustave. All the characters have very different personalities and it's easy to relate to them or to find their characteristic in your friends. The little part that didn't work for me was the explanation of the murder case. It seemed to be a lot of details missing and I would have loved to have a more palpable "how it was done?" answer. There were also some part that seemed a bit blurry in my mind and I had trouble to see what exactly was happening. I enjoyed the setting and the fact that it was set in France and that the main character was Irish. That part talked a lot to me and it was done just right. I would recommend this book to all fans of mystery and historical fiction.
