Some Amazon Reviews
“I Died Once” (Novella)
5.0 out of 5 stars This novella grabs you and doesn’t let you go, September 20, 2012
This review is from: I Died Once (Paperback)
Once I started reading this novella, I couldn’t stop. It hooked me from the very first line: “Mady was a Dark Child…” I wanted to know who Mady was and what made her a “Dark Child.”
The book immediately combines a masterful use of dialogue and first-person narrative from Mady’s perspective to establish all the elements of a great story: a compelling plot, three-dimensional characters, and dialogue and descriptive passages that bring you into Mady’s world.
James turns Mady from a girl I found immediately annoying into one who I wanted to hug and nurture. He quickly creates some thrilling action, and gives just enough detail to keep the story moving ahead with a strong plot and even stronger characters, each with their unique voice. I am so impressed at the depth and richness of the story he told in such a short space. That kind of tight writing takes enormous talent.
But if I said more, I would have to start telling you about the parts that I thought were stunningly executed, like his engaging details of Africa or his astute definition between a hunter and a killer. But, like I said, I don’t want to spoil the story for all of you who are now going to have to read this gem of a book because of what I didn’t reveal in this review.
This is an intriguing, well-told story that can be read in one sitting. If you are disappointed, it will be because is ends so quickly.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written, May 14, 2012This review is from: Winter, Lust, And Wonder (Winter 2011) (Kindle Edition)It’s not only well written but in a beautiful way. The kind that inspires you, at first I was regretting the lack of images or drawings but my imagination took quickly care of that. The style and the words invite to see trough the writer’s eyes. Sometimes it’s magical, sometimes down to earth, and if you read in the “space” between the words, you get the depth of the message. I enjoyed especially A Grip on the Darkness, I Walk Through Thee, Utopia, Moon, and felt very touched by “~Japan – Compassion~”…
I expected a number of poems almost identical but their words, instead the style changes, the tone, the ideas, … A very surprising and beautiful discovery. I’m sure the author would do great in a novel or a fiction book, looking forward to more!
