Smashwords book reviews by Daniel H. Wieczorek

  • The Ghost Wars: Book 1 on July 17, 2012

    Oh God! The formatting (Mobi version) is so poor that I could not continue reading. I was pretty proud of myself though, I managed to get to 16%! I then downloaded the RTF version to see what the problem was and if I could fix it, create my own Mobi version and continue reading. The RTF format was so messed up with inconsistent font sizes and text styles that I did not want to take the time to try. I might have worked on the RTF version to improve the formatting, but the writing style left much to be desired, in my opinion and I didn't care to work on it.
  • Marking Time on Dec. 15, 2012

    A darn fine read. I really enjoyed this book and found ti to contain very few errors in either spelling, word use or punctuation. I only with it had been longer!
  • Nor Iron Bars a Cage on Dec. 16, 2013

    WOW! This book was a great read! I read a lot of genres of books and being a gay man this was not my first book of the gay genre. It was, however, the first one (I believe) which was actually graphic enough to give me an erection! It was not just sex though - it was a real adventure story with a very rich description of the countryside in which they were traveling in/passing through. You will not be disappointed.
