Smashwords book reviews by James Wilcox
- Pilate's Cross
on Aug. 16, 2011
Although I enjoyed J. Alexander Greenwood's novel Pilate's Cross, I have to admit that I do have one complaint: it was too short. Mr. Greenwood came up with and developed a nice story line, with interesting characters, while managing to squeeze in layers of suspense, action, and even a little romance. I really enjoyed that Mr. Greenwood made the book more than just a "who done it" mystery, with his connections to civil rights, segregation, and small town politics. The problem is, I wanted more. I wanted to spend more time with Pilate, Simon, Kate, Kara, and Scovill. Pilate's Cross could have been twice as long and still remained the enjoyable, fast paced story it is. Nice job!
- Losing Myself (Short Story)
on Sep. 27, 2011
I don't read many short stories because I like characters and stories that I can sink my teeth into. I picked up this story because I try to support local authors and Tim Morrell is a local author for me. Interesting idea, but I wanted more. More character development, a more fully developed story, etc. Not bad for a short story, but this could easily be developed into a full length novel and I think I would have appreciated it more.
