Smashwords book reviews by Rob Loughran

  • Calling All Men - How to Slay Your Inner Princess, Nineteen Ways to Man Up on Oct. 26, 2011

    This is a funny and insightful book. Kent's ultimate message, delivered with laughter and well-intentioned vulgarity, is that--AS MEN--we are responsible for our own balls. It's not the economy or your mommy or your ex-wife who keep you fat and unhappy, it's you--so deal with it. If you're a man, be a man. Buy this book. Read/study/enjoy it. I have a feeling that gals will love this book because it affords you a peek into the locker room/sweat lodge. Buy this book. Highly recommended. Rob Loughran
  • Over Easy on Sep. 26, 2012

    "Over Easy" is a pleasing smorgasbord of characters. The novella rolls quickly through a series of slice-of-life vignettes in entertaining 1940s dialect. There is information and man-in-the-street analysis of WW II battles but "Over Easy" works so well as fiction because the reader sees how the war’s events affect the hearts and minds of those fighting the war on the homefront. The novella is, especially for its compactness, an effective and moving character study. All the diverse characters—from a Communist prep chef, to a Japanese infantryman, to a GI writing letters home to his sister from Italy are rounded-out and presented with all their warts showing. This is not a simple-minded “Those Were the Good Ole Days” rehash of World War Two. And you can even pick up some cooking tips utilizing war time rations! Highly recommended, I’m looking forward to Peter Stewart’s next installment in the series.
