Smashwords book reviews by Mary Nicholson

  • A Family Affair on July 29, 2011

    The writing in this book was free from major grammatical errors. THANK YOU. So many people do not realize what a turn off it is when the grammar is terrible. However, I did notice differences between American English and Australian English, but I got a kick out of that. Before I begin I thought it would be fair to state upfront that I am strictly a Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror reader. This book was definitely out of my realm of reading choice. The first twenty pages had me hooked. I liked the shift in characters, leaving me to wonder how they all connected. That was nicely done. However, after a while I found myself getting bored and I skipped several pages at a time until I got to the end. I am not into drama and mystery, but I could tell this author put a lot of work into this book and anyone who enjoys this genre is sure to love this book.
  • The Beast of Bridgewater on Aug. 14, 2011

    I enjoyed this story. The use of language was execellent and kept me interested to the end.
  • Birthday Party (A Short Story) on Aug. 18, 2011

    I thought this was a good story. I for one am terrified of clowns. There were a few grammatical errors, but not enough to deter me from reading further. I like the expression "Tiny ice spiders ran up and down Timmy’s spine". I also like the - eat up, we need a piñata. Scary and humorous. I would like to see this develop into a full fledged psycho clown that terrorizes children.
  • The Faithful Watcher on Aug. 24, 2011

    The book was exciting from the start, which kept me interested. I liked the fact that the beginning was really not what it seemed. There were several interesting twists along the way. I would have liked to have seen Lucy use more of her 'gift'. Admittedly there were a couple times I would have liked to have seen more action. For a moment I thought Steph was going to get into a 'cat' fight with Lucy, and I was kind of hoping for it. I loved Lucy and Wills characters and was pleased with the ending. I do agree that the events in the end were resolved too quickly. As I got closer to the end I wondered how the Salesman was going to come into play. For a moment I thought it'd be left open for a sequel. Overall an excellent book!
  • Enchanted Forest of Horror (A Short Story) on Aug. 25, 2011

    What a wonderfully written short story! I loved it! It kept me biting my nails to the end.
