Smashwords book reviews by El Chupacabra Independent Press

  • Be Sarcastic: Revised and Expanded Edition on Aug. 11, 2012
    star star star star star
    Satire, sarcasm and irony as tools for use in everyday life. Although some people may disagree with the points made, the read is smart and entertaining. A must read for bureaucrats.
  • Just Plain Weird on Sep. 10, 2012

    The story is inventive and original. Overall the book manages to draw in the reader and succeeds in captivating attention. There are a few misplaced words with some spelling errors, not much though and not enough to distract from the story.
  • Strange Future: A 23rd Century Guide for the 21st Century Cynic on Sep. 10, 2012

    Although it's interesting enough to read from beginning to end, I would not read it again. It's hard to shake the feeling that this would be better labeled as pseudo-Futurama fan fiction. There are some formatting issues, but don't let that distract you, you may enjoy it.
  • It's Not Him; It's Them on Sep. 11, 2012
    star star star star
    One of those short stories that can be read in an afternoon - front to back. The comedy turns to "drama-dy" several times throughout the story and it's difficult to laugh at such depressing issues. Other than that, there are some good laughs to be had, here and there. It's worth a look.
  • Last Days in the Desert on Sep. 24, 2012
    star star star star
    A wild house party sets the mood for a day of hungover and generally foggy minded misadventures. Follow the group of girls as they find a few leftover surprises leaving them with some unfortunate things to take care of before everyone heads home. With proper character development and attention given to eliminate patterns in sentence structure this short story would be fantastic. Absurdly funny moments and situations make up for the style, though. The story is unique and worth a read.
  • The One Who Is Two (Book 1 of White Rabbit) on Oct. 15, 2012
    star star star star star
    Dark comedy taken to the next level. Squeamish beware. Although there are plenty of scenes that would qualify as horror, The One Who is Two never fails to remind the reader of the bizarre humor that exists in such grotesque circumstances. It's a page turner and that's what counts.
