Smashwords book reviews by Ajay Tulsiani

  • Love and Other Things on May 20, 2014

    Each poem has a story of its own. My favourtes were 'A woman's guide', 'The long distant love', and 'The artist.' 'The argument' was funny. I wish a few poems were more like the first one, about freedom to have fun, no restraints, celebration of life.
  • The Tree on Aug. 04, 2014

    I liked the chemistry between bobby and alex, especially when alex flaunts his own mobile and bobby says, 'who texts you anyway?' that was funny. there were some nice moments, with nancy(all trees are alive, that was funny), the glow in dark stars. though there were a few typos, pov situations and too many adverbs, it was a nice story. suggestion: cut down the use of adverbs. the part where bobby's dad suggests to get the night light, instead of saying: "No," Bobby replied quickly, you can say, "No," Bobby refused the proposition. He tip-toed to the window and slowly reached out at the curtains. It's understood he's doing the act slowly. There were a few typos, overall it was a nice read.
  • The Grubbs on Aug. 04, 2014

    I had trouble understanding the part about 'the thing.' I had to read it twice. If you could make that clearer. I liked the part where Ken's dad calls the mc pauly, the dilemma paul has in introducing himself to ken.
  • Guild of the Dashing Rogues on Aug. 10, 2014

    Liked the story. Clarion has been shown as a suave and witty sailor. The tempo could've been faster. In the beginning there could be some small paras instead of the big ones to increase the pace so the reader gets quickly involved in the story.
  • Without A sound on Aug. 15, 2014

    I liked the sexual tension. But it seems like everything’s too convenient. Maybe if the lady first seduces him then shrugs away, like she’s doubting the act, hesitating, then goes for it. I couldn’t find any conflict here. Suggestions: Midway during act, her phone rings and he sees her husband’s photo on screen, shakes her head to him and begins wearing her clothes, when he grabs her waist and tickles her belly, pinches her breast making her vulnerable and forcing her to give in, like she can’t control the urge. Some characterization, like he sees a tattoo on her thigh, or she gives him a condom packet. Maybe if he seduced her more before she agrees, or he teases her more. She removes his wedding ring from his finger and puts it in her panty. Or when they’re having sex in the dressing room, they hear a knock on the door, through keyhole he sees a man outside. He signals her to keep quiet and waits for him to leave when feels a hand on his crotch. On his way back, some neighbor winks at him.
  • Coffee Addict: Part 1 on April 06, 2015

    Nice quick read. Though it would've been much easier had there been line breaks. But overall, it was fun. I'd continue reading if there were more chapters.
