Smashwords book reviews by Steve B Howard

  • The Cull on July 16, 2015

    I thought this was a very well written short story. It is a very timely topic and seemed like a realistic scenario. The dialogue is the key to the story and all of it was very natural and believable. Each character had a very clear and distinct voice. I enjoyed reading it very much.
  • Big Knuckles on Sep. 22, 2015

    Wild ride into the lives of some desperate characters. And wince inducing details at times. Maybe not for everyone, but for readers that don't mind being shocked this is a good read and I highly recommend it.
