Smashwords book reviews by Karen Freeman-Smith

  • The Year of the Rooster on July 26, 2012

    I enjoyed reading about Ms. Hahn and I hope we get to learn more about her in future stories. I loved the story and the happy ending - but can't help feeling like it's not really the end at all. Looking forward to your next book!
  • At The Turning Point (Choices: Story One) on July 26, 2012

    I loved the way that just when it seems like things will work out, one more plot twist comes along to keep me reading. I loved the characters and am glad that Donna had her ah-ha moment in the end.
  • Healthy or Else on Aug. 18, 2012

    Talk about "food police"! Interesting future dystopia where health rules, and you can be arrested or fined for being anything less than perfectly healthy. Good mystery too. I had to keep reading to find out what happened to Zoe.
  • Reprieve - a short story on Aug. 19, 2012

    The writing style reminds me a little of the Foundation series by Asimov. I had a hard time getting into it, but suspect those who are more hard-core sci-fi fans would love it.
  • Le Morte d'Arthur on Sep. 06, 2012

    It was over too soon! I was thinking that the short story was introducing the book, but the preview is a different story.
  • Insider’s Guide to Passing a Drug Test on June 10, 2013

    This was very helpful. I am subject to random drug tests by DOT and always worry about those stories from friends about getting a positive result from being at a party or eating poppy seeds. You have finally set my mind to ease with all the background information on how the drug test work, especially the screens vs. the tests. Thanks! (The bold font was a little hard to read... but other than that the book was easy well-written and well organized.)
