Dick Thornton’s book reviews

This is a good story, but with a somewhat weak plot, I thought. With the science of the 1930's it takes a particularly good writer to excite an audience of the 2010's.

I guess I'm in my second childhood, as I found this to be a very excellent book. As a 70-year-old man, I almost deleted it when I realized it was a juvenile girl's mystery. Still, I decided to give it a try, and what do you know! I enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend it to all ages and genders.

I found this book to be overly wordy, and full of words that were in fashion a long time ago. It was of some interest if one is willing to wade through so much courtly verbiage. It may appeal to those who enjoy Shakespeare, though it is not quite that convoluted.

This is a fine book of humorous short stories. At the end of each story, I had a smile, a chuckle, or a good laugh. I highly recommend it as a good read.

Unfortunately, this book did not hold my attention. After one long chapter, I found it dull and uninteresting, and gave it up.

Not for me. I found it dull and tedious with a lot of multi-page dialog that said essentially nothing. Only made it about 20% through.

However, she chose to go into Agricultural Business and Event Planning, NOT writing. Flash forward several years, and she finds herself finally penning out the worst rough draft of what was to become The Earthspark in the dead of night. All because of a dream she'd just had.… Read more
