Smashwords book reviews by tomjamin

  • The Story on Sep. 04, 2016

    A cute trick of a short story.
  • Nightshade on Sep. 04, 2016

    This story really made me wonder about the war on terror. It's high tech and impersonal, yet haunting.
  • Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story on Sep. 04, 2016

    High tech jets, explosive weapons and a splash of humor make this story a good read.
  • Time Travel Police Corruption on Oct. 12, 2016

    This writer has some skills. Nice work whipping back and forward in time. Covered a lot of ground in a short few pages.
  • Paleo diet A quick beginner guide on Oct. 19, 2016

    Sounds like a diet I can actually do.
  • The Aircraft Man on April 22, 2017

    This book is about a conspiracy. Two guys in a small southwest town are looking into mysterious happenings. Along the way we enjoy their humor and fears. Are UFOs and aliens causing things or are our main characters deranged? It's hard to tell, but fun to speculate.
  • Undead Underway (Undead in Blue #1) on April 22, 2017

    This story has the perfect set up, when a sailor aboard a nuke sub goes out on liberty in port . . . and comes back with a strange illness. Sure enough the sub dives to the depths of the ocean and things start getting weird and scary (and funny). If you enjoy vampire stories with a bite of humor, this story is for you. It's amazing that this author came up with all this because from her bio, it seems she was never in the Navy. This could be an awesome movie.
  • The Pirate on April 22, 2017

    Every character, from the young coast guard sailor, the slacker beach bum, the teen girl left behind, the Miami criminals, they are all very realistic. I could not stop reading because the plot is so gripping. The writing style is very good and quite visual. Every twist and turn in the plot is shocking to some degree.
  • Junky Requiem on April 29, 2017

    I had a hard time with this because it shows graphic drug use of the worst kind. It's real and all, and I guess some will see value in this type of writing, but I could not stomach it.
  • Faith on April 29, 2017

    This was a nice little story but it seemed to drag a bit toward the middle, like something more should have happened.
  • Scientific Poems: Vol1 Collection on April 29, 2017

    I wish there was more poems like this, where the author uses science and technology. Too many poems are about feelings and depression and love. We need more poems about machines and robots and high technology because these subjects are the new magic.
