Smashwords book reviews by aLife Beyond Books

  • How God's Light Blinded Me on July 21, 2014

    Short, quick biography on going from religious to non-religious, I thought the book was honest, sympathetic, and easy to read. Broken down into rapid-page chapters, sprinkled with an editorial error here and there, this small booklet (ebook single?) is raw, transparent, and much needed in a superstitious world looking for rational testimonies of life outside of the religious bubble.
  • The Lonely Boy on June 28, 2015

    Not a bad short story for a young person. Not deep, but entertaining and brief. Good imagery, but needs a re-edit for grammar. Would recommend.
  • Just How It Is on June 28, 2015

    Book cover is generic. While the author says he's been writing for some time, the story is confusing, though suspenseful. If there was a clue to what exactly happened at the end of the story, it needed to be more clear. Not a bad idea of a story, but needs some work. A lot of it.
  • The Road to Life on June 28, 2015

    Horrible cover art, incoherent ramblings. This book is short and crammed with religious conspiracies. The absurdity of trying to connect Karl Marx to divination and Plato to totalitarianism abounds in this book of spirituality and Christian mysticism. And it side-steps from here to talking about soldiers time-warping for some reason. Just paragraphs later, the author tries to connect all these separate topics with eugenics, early 18th Century U.S. presidents and Jesuits. A very silly book of ramblings that sane people would read only to pass time with a giggle.
