Smashwords book reviews by Pamela Cornes

  • Dirty Little Angels on Nov. 18, 2010

    "Dirty Little Angels" by Chris Tusa was okay. The story is centered around Hailey, a sixteen-year old who is desperately trying to save her family from seperaration and divorce...she tries to keep them together the best that she can, no thanks to the activities of her mom and dad. However, as the story develops, this act proves more difficult especially considering Hailey and her brother, Cyrus, and their connection with Moses, a self-proclaimed preacher of a drive-thru church who believes that some people have to go through hell before they can be saved. The ending is unexpected, though, not surprising considering the events leading towards the end. All in all, I really liked this book. I enjoyed the way Tusa developed this characters, right down to their mannerisms, and how he made them work together to help the story come alive. I just wish the plot would have been more developed towards the end. I give it 4 stars.
  • A Camp Edson Christmas on Dec. 03, 2011

    "A Camp Edson Christmas" by Cynthia Davis was a running start on reading for this holiday season. Ms. Davis really captured the true spirit of Christmas that we should all have in the so-called janitor, "Engal." Working at a camp on Christmas Eve wasn't exactly what Christina had in mind for the holidays, but she did it...hoping to bring some holiday cheer to the campers they were hosting and also knowing that she had a home and family to go home to with which to spend her holday. The last thing she expected to happen was to have them make the holiday for her, like in the camper, Faith, who just enjoys being at the camp while she's there, not worrying about the presents she'll get for Christmas. And, Mr. Engal, the so-called janitor that Christina ridicules and ignores who ultimately ends up making Christmas for them all. I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was a great read for the holiday season and helped you see the real meaning of Christmas. I give it 4 stars.
  • The Dirt Eaters on Dec. 14, 2011

    "The Dirt Eaters" by H.D. Timmons was an interesting short story. While reading this, I became immersed in the culture of Betty and Rosalyn and wanted to know more about dirt-eaters. Even when Rosalyn and her husband moved away, Rosalyn's need for the chalk, the so-called "dirt," was still strong, and, because of this, she even went against her husband's wishes to consume dirt. I also really enjoyed the way the author weaved a sense of community into her story when Gladys stopped by and boldly let Rosalyn know that she, too, was a "dirt-eater," and she should not feel alone. Actually, that part of the story really appealed to me because I love getting together with a group of my friends and sharing a common interest so I really appreciated the author incorporating that aspect into her story. However, when Rosalyn's husband, Earl, gets killed in a race riot, and Rosalyn has to move back home, I wasn't quite sure how that part connected with the rest of the story. It was almost like the flow had stopped at that point and then the story ended. I give it 3 stars.
  • What We Say on May 06, 2013

    I like it because you're right. It is about what we say. Our words can make or break a person.
  • Service Provider on Oct. 25, 2013

    Much different from my usual reads and took a minute for me to get into the flow, but it was good.
  • The Last Day With My Friends (In The Marble Orchard) on Oct. 25, 2013

    I did like this story...that that author waited until the end to say it was a graveyard, to build up the suspense. I also liked how he give close throughout the short story on why he was visiting his friends, how he lost them and how he ultimately wanted to stay.
