Smashwords book reviews by Lora Covrett

  • Simba on Nov. 28, 2012

    Sweet but sad story. :)
  • The Globe (A Christmas Story) on Dec. 05, 2012

    A PERFECT story for this time of year. :) Loved it. My only non-positive thing to say -- and I have been guilty of this in my writing many, many times -- is that the ending was a bit abrupt.
  • Cape Cod Blues on Dec. 10, 2012

    I thought this was very well-written and I enjoyed the story. I was confused by the "adult-content" rating though because there are no curse words nor is there any sexual content.
  • The Journal on Dec. 14, 2012

    Excellent teaser - leaves you wanting more. The story was a bit expository in parts but it's a journal so it works for this format. Think I'm going to have to read more for sure.
  • Alas, Too Soon The Bloom Is Off The Flowers! on Jan. 12, 2014

    This was a well-written, brief piece of prose. As soon as I submit this, I am going to see what else this author has to offer.
  • Why Am I Here? on Jan. 12, 2014

    Not a "religious" story - it's just a well-written, nice, sweet tale for children and adults alike.
  • The Candidate on Jan. 12, 2014

    Any kind of humor is subjective and while this might appeal to some and be very funny, I am clearly not the target audience. This piece seems a little angry even though it's satire, there are typos and the words don't flow as smoothly as in this author's other work. I'm still a fan of this author, just not this story. :(
  • Empathism: A Short Psychological Analysis of Social Media on Jan. 12, 2014

    Interesting. I have often thought that humans are caught in sort of an endless loop - we are distanced by technology because we 'talk' online more than we talk in person, thus technology is what brings us together - sort of a double-edged sword. This piece focused on 'why' people post what they post on Facebook. Have you given any thought to the broader topic of humanity and technology?
  • I Want to Believe on July 28, 2014

    This was genuine. I have a feeling the author could write endlessly on this topic. A complex topic for sure, with many views. What if it is all just a dog and pony show?
  • Foreign Relations on Aug. 10, 2014

    This story has a poignant message. I liked it. Just one thing that bothered me a bit - I've never seen "World War Two" spelled out like that. I think it should be "World War II." Sorry to be so picky but in such a short piece, a typo can really affect the readability.
