He panted. Every sip of air seemed to burn his lungs. The air was thick and sticky; it smelled like rotten fish mixed with ammonia. He could feel the rough concrete against his back; he shifted his position and stole a glance at the east ramp. Nothing. Only darkness and stillness. It just made him more alert; the quietness was somehow out of place.

Smashwords book reviews by Helmy Kusuma

  • Sammi Ever After on Nov. 03, 2010

    Easily addictive, one-in-a-breath reading, couldn't stop until you eat it raw! But it also offers some clever ending and afterthought! Recommended for anyone currently in a relationship, or thinking of having one!
  • Atlantis: A Karmic Memory of the Rise & Fall on Feb. 27, 2011

    Lacks the storytelling aspect. Requires highly curious mind to finish. Overall containing detail accounts on the life on Atlantis.
  • Confessions of a Bookworm on March 17, 2011

    Loving it!!! You are the god of bookworm incarnated!
  • A Story Almost Told on March 30, 2011

    It didn't do to me. I got bored reading several chapters and couldn't force myself to read all the chapters. Maybe it's the plot or maybe it's the tone.
  • Upgrade on April 02, 2011

    Easily flowing, seductive and superb ending!
  • Josie's Thorn on April 10, 2011

    Years of repressed passion which yields in outbursts of lust! For enhanced experiences, read by your spouse's side.
  • The Final Victory on April 29, 2011

    I guess I failed to notice the category when I was buying this book...I am not fond of religion story. This book is based heavily on religious themes: a fight between God and Satan from the Christianity's point of view. From reading several chapters, I surmised that this work could benefit from a little more editing. It's a promising work though, with the suspense and fast-paced story-telling.
  • The Tooth, The Whole Tooth and Nothing But The Tooth on May 03, 2011

    I could not help myself but crack up. This is so funny! And witty. I gulp it all in one sitting. I don't mind reading a longer one. Definitely follow his other works!
  • Playing The Game on June 03, 2011

    Superb! Simon masterfully builds tension after tension making me unable to stop wondering what the next page would bring. The complex web of deceit is spun seamlessly to the tempo and is only revealed until the last moment. Ending is great giving the impression of non-fictitiousness. One suggestion, though, Simon could build even more anticipation if he uses exact timing such as two days ago instead of last week.
  • Cooking Class on June 03, 2011

    Read this with your spouse. Guaranteed satisfaction! This book is very true to its genre!
  • Game 7: Dead Ball on July 04, 2011

    Allen patiently brings me step after step following the intricate details of intermixed motives and plots. He has a methodical and logical approach in bringing the story to the reader, and he makes sure that the reader does not feel overwhelm while at the same time feels entertained. I do not know anything about baseball-craze in US but I still thoroughly enjoy this book. Give it a go.
  • The Sable City on July 25, 2011

    Reading Sable City is like eating roasted sunflower seed ; you get impatient at first and want to gobble them all at once, but you know you can not so you try patiently to crack each and every bit of it. When you get to bag no five you are already fluent in opening the shell and licking the seed; you start to speed up: bag six, seven...until you realize there are no more bags. You go to the store and find out that there are no more bags left. You go to the farmer and he say that you have to wait another year until the production starts again. I am patiently breathing on Ed's neck so he can finish the sequel. BTW, It's awesome! LOTR has to inch aside to give room for Sable City.
  • Facebook A Passion gone too far on Aug. 03, 2011

    This a gloom version of life where vices and evils lurk in every corner. Unexpected could only be bad. I am hoping for a whiter version, but still Kristina has done a good job on making it seem believable.
  • Death of a Kingdom on Aug. 03, 2011

    After finished reading The Sable City I gobbled this sequel in no time leaving my others-to-be-read screaming in protests. Ed has written a great epic story with a touch of good humor. Why so serious like Zeb would say...I mean Joker. Since The Wind of Miilark has not been released I have ample time to read other books ;)
  • Watering the Tree, Thoughts on Liberty and Tyranny on Aug. 04, 2011

    I got a glimpse of how some Americans thinks about the American way. Fascinating!! And an opinionated one at that...
  • Kiwi in Cat City on Aug. 23, 2011

    This is not only a purrfect bedtime story for your children, but also a welcoming refreshment for hissing adults to tame their stiffness. Funny, mysterious and full of paws! Don't forget to wash your whiskers!
  • The Fishers on Oct. 02, 2011

    If you don't want your view of lazy fishing day be tainted, don't read this book. Once you lay your eyes on page one, you wouldn't be able to stop until the last word. So, grit your teeth and be ready to be scared... Please tell me Erik, that surely there is a continuation for this gem??
  • The Time Travel Journals: Shipbuilder on Oct. 02, 2011

    Marlene has done a wonderful job on weaving the tale of Titanic with that of science-fiction gizmos. She patiently built the story event by event, not rushing, but not losing the tempo. I've been taken on a tour of 20th Century Irish: its landscape, its social structure and its problems I am reminded of Pearl S. Buck. Great book!! Will definitely read Bridgebuilder!
  • Kiwi and the Missing Magic on Oct. 17, 2011

    Kiwi is fun to read as ever! If you are following Kiwi Series closely, you can certainly find the same funny and witty story here, with a bonus, of course. Vickie has included other animals here and they accounts for the clever plot of this sequel. It's not complicated though, but sure you are going to be served with a few surprises. Eeek Fu! My mouth is sealed.
  • Catch on Feb. 15, 2012

    A fast page turner with a solid story and characters development! If you like science fiction, you can even praise more! Recommended reading!
  • The Untime: A Novel of 19th-Century Paris on April 29, 2018

    Adorable interactions between characters, eloquent sentences, and time travel. What else do you need?
  • Red Wheels Turning on Feb. 12, 2019

    A journey worth having!
