Kenechi Udogu's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Kenechi Udogu

  • Three Weeks in May on March 12, 2012

    I thought this would be a straightforward love story set in a futuristic world but it turned out to be much more than that. Full of twists and turns, I was pleasantly surprised most of the way. A good read.
  • Lately, and My Dreams on March 20, 2012

    I laughed out loud at many points as I read this book. The dreams were very vivid and funny (although sometimes a bit too graphic for me) and at first I prefered them to the real life events Aundri (protagonist) was experiencing but as the story developed, this flipped and I finally began to empathise with her. It did feel a little like the story got wound up too quickly and neatly at the end especially with regards to resolving her issues with her husband. Nonetheless, a funny heartwarming story of a woman's anxieties manifesting in her dreams and how she manages to deal with them. I wish I could give this a three and a half star rating because I really liked it but not quite enough for a four star rating if I compare it to other books I've given four stars. Would certainly recommend it.
  • Cords of the Ascendant on Feb. 02, 2015

    Sci-fi stories tend to be hit or miss for me but I really enjoyed this one. Fast-paced and not the tome so many sci-fi books tend to be, Cord of the Ascendant kept me turning its pages to see if I’d figured out the plot direction (I won’t say if I did). The story is told from at least three points of view but mainly from the protagonist’s (Maxwell Charles) POV. I liked Maxwell as a character and all through the book he came across as sincerely believing in what he was trying to achieve. His reason for planting a nanochip in the president wasn’t immediately revealed so I wasn’t sure if I should be cheering him on at first. When we were told why, I kind of felt like he was overreacting but the story wouldn’t have worked without that element. There are a lot of flashbacks to help move the story along so prepare yourself for many scenery switches. For technology buffs, the inner-workings of the nanochip technology are never fully explained but that didn’t take away from the story. The reason for the psychic link also never gets bottled out (or at least I never quite understood why it was there) but, again, it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story. Since the book is the first in the “Power Business Collection”, I don’t think it’d be a spoiler to say that it ends with the allusion of a continuation, not a cliff-hanger though (thank goodness).
