Smashwords book reviews by Raja Sharma

  • Bid for a Bride on July 30, 2011

    The flow hardly gives a reader to put the book down even for a second. Thoroughly entertaining from the first page to the last. Enjoyed reading. Admirable write! All the best. Raja Sharma
  • Smashwords Style Guide on Aug. 04, 2011

    The updated style guide is wonderful. I can assert that even a layman can format books if he is ready to read the instructions carefully and in steps, without ever trying to be over-smart,for I was in my initial adventures with the earlier guide and I had to resubmit books five or six times. But now I have been able to send more than hundred books to the premium catalog. Mr. Mark Coker and his team do care for the author, publishers, and the readers. All the best.
  • Why I Believe in God on Aug. 08, 2011

    Logic is well supported and the style of writing is admirable. I enjoyed reading he book. Good Work! Raja Sharma
  • Whispering Tides on Jan. 20, 2012

    Thanks for this beautiful gift. Though I have gone through just the opening pages, I can eloquently assert that it is going to touch you very deep. The description is marvelous . Raja Sharma
  • Whispering Tides on Jan. 21, 2012

    I would like to dwell upon one significant thing and that is the fluent and smooth style of Guido Mattioni. The lines seem to be compelling the reader to softly and silently move along because the description is simply mesmerizing. I felt as if I were gently introduced to another America, a kind of absorbing panorama. Hats off to Guido Mattioni. A gem of a literary creation. Very rare to come across in this fast paced otherwise insipid world of literature which is so much deteriorated with all that crap which is published in the name of Literature. If you are sick of reading the usual stuff, this book will touch you like lulling zephyr. Regards Raja Sharma
