Robert Evans, Sr

Biography

Just some ol ramblin guy who likes good reading on a sunday afternoon. Used to live in Vancouver and Nova Scotia now living in Clearwater Idaho.
Got two dogs and one cat. My late wife Audra was the best soul mate a man could wish for spent many happy 30 years together before she went to the pearly gates. Our son Walter lives in Missouri.

What is a good book to me? A good book pulls me in and never lets me stop reading until I get to the final chapter one that I cannot put down.

Do I write books? Have I a story to tell? No Im no writer of books though yes I do have a story ain't well all got one. Id leave it rather in the capable hands of those that do and put so much of their time into books.

    The story was too short and stopped when it just began.

    Would recommend this to other readers of poetry and literature. Being in my late 60s Ive read many poems through out my entire life, the poems in this book are beautiful. Please write and publish more. Robert Evans.

    I have to completely disagree with the comment below. Indeed she did not give the book a fair chance. Having read a fair bit of this book myself even though Im one of the old male stocks but i do like a bit of romance to read. I defy anyman who doesnt. From what I have read so far is good. This is the authors first main novel and she did a great job. Would recommend this for perfect flights of fancy. Hope thers more to come Jess

    I have finished the book and here is my full review. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I felt all of the emotions that were contained in this book. There is a good amount of dialogue and story building. It is not forced. It is well written though there are a few minor spelling mistakes here or there but that does not detract from the story or the fun reading it. Each chapter contains a scene or a snapshot of what is happening. Interesting way to tell a story. I cannot for the life of me understand how some people here are seeing this book negatively. Although I don't know much about writing, I'd say it is a jolly hard task to do and I am not mincing my words when I say well done Jess. What a lovely book full of emotions. Highly recommended. Robert

    Beautiful book. Stunning pictures coupled with beautiful poetry and quotations. The note about the contents at the start was nicely different also the note at the end was a lovely conclusion. My wife would have loved a book like this. A joy to read Highly recommended.Excellent Robert

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your son. I understand poetry can be such a personal thing. Ma wife loved poetry and since her passing, I have developed a fondness for it. It keeps her around in a manner of speaking, so yes I completely understood your poetry once I had read the book. Nice poems, just a little too much space in it in the first part, other than that, a nice book with personal poems of love, family and remembrances. Wish you all the best.

    I read this book some time back forgot to review it, says something about my age! I'm a little shocked at the reviewer below me. Don't know what the hell she's on about! I am happy that Jess published these poems, there are some strong metaphors in there and I would hate to think them gathering dust on some shelf. How would it be if all poets did that?! Every poet author, writer each has there own influences. I have seen it before in other books I have read. Now as to 'The Howling Winds' I enjoyed this book. A bit dark for me really, but its flooded with emotions and sorrow. It's like as the first reviewer said it being about the side of life we don't think about or want to look at. I enjoyed your book Jess. Don't let any critical or negative reviews stop you from writing and publishing more books. You're great at writing. Keep it up. 5 stars but I wish I could give it more. Thank you and God Bless you. Robert

    Enjoyed your story. Surprised other reviewer only gave it one star. I have given it 4 stars and the reason is this, I wish it had been longer. You got a good story there which could be developed further. I like your style of writing here. Well done. Robert
