Smashwords book reviews by Nanette Littlestone

  • The Butler's Duties on Aug. 19, 2010
    (no rating)
    Quirky! The storyline held my interest but I kept wanting to know how the butler felt. Did he enjoy his tasks? Was he merely seeing to his duties? What made him stay with such an employer?
  • Santa's Claws & Steven, Space Stowaway on Aug. 22, 2010
    (no rating)
    It was difficult to navigate through the plethora of typos and bad punctuation, but the charm of the story won out. I thoroughly enjoyed the delightful tale of the scheming stowaway. Well done!
  • A Soft Place to Fall on Aug. 22, 2010

    Love,compassion, and understanding flows through this thoughtful piece. All children should know such caring. All parents should share such love with their children.
  • Canary (a short story) on Aug. 22, 2010

    Yes you CAN learn all you need to know about life in kindergarten, or elementary school, as is the case in this story. In many stories the reader is simply an observer, but Michael Crane draws us into Willie's world. I felt his love of books, the chill of the street, the sweet taste of beer (and I hate the taste of beer). A nice take on ethics and feelings. Well done! I look forward to reading more works.
  • Let's Go Fishing: TIps on Hooking A Literary Agent (includes excerpt of "Sellout") on Aug. 22, 2010
    (no rating)
    While the first seven pages were directed at tips for writing a good query letter, I was disappointed that the remainder of the ebook was a fiction excerpt.
  • Long Way Down on Aug. 22, 2010

    Definite twists make for a surprising read. Though I wanted to know more about the character at the end.
