Smashwords book reviews by Lorrie Palmer

  • The Rainbow Stick Boy on Jan. 17, 2013

    I read this as soon as I received it (as a free gift from the author). It is a good lesson to impart to young children--it's okay to be different. There is also the lesson that you should not judge others just because they may be different than everyone else around them. A good story to read aloud to young children.
  • An Honest Mistake: A Humor Tale on Jan. 17, 2013

    I didn't find the humor in the story and found the dialog to be very stilted. And thought the disgust the brother showed in eating the dog biscuits was pretty over the top. I encourage the author to keep trying and to take a writing course where fellow authors can help her hone her craft and to give her honest feedback.
  • Three Lanes Down: A Short Horror Story on Jan. 17, 2013

    I did not even read this beyond the bowling alley scene. I found it hard to read -- not every move needs to be described. Most people have bowled before so it doesn't have to be pointed out that you pick up the ball from the upper part of the return. I found the sex talk and fake boobs showing-off very off-putting as well. I guess it just wasn't my kind of story.
  • The Missing Text: A Short Humor Story on Jan. 17, 2013

    I have to agree with the other two prior reviewers. Maybe the author hears the story in her head better than she is able to write it.
