Review of 'To Kill the Duke' by author Sam Moffie

By Allbooks Review , published on Dec 4, 2012

Take a journey back into the 1950s, alongside a cast of familiar characters, and re-visit the ‘Cold War’ in a different light…!

Author, Sam Moffie, creates a tidal wave of excellence pouring out and onto each page of his latest literary work, ‘To Kill The Duke.’

Moffie constructs a work of art in this piece of – historical facts meets fiction. As a history buff, I have always been interested in learning more about the ‘Cold War’ and the major consequence it had on our history as a whole.

Review of When Wolf Comes, written by John Pappas

By Allbooks Review , published on Nov 23, 2012

Aidan Ephraim Martin was a man whose life took turns that no one could have ever predicted. The challenges he met after that fateful day in 1801 when he sat down for a drink in a public house after a hard day of fishing would have killed a lesser man. Being knocked unconscious and waking up as a captive seaman, miles out to sea, didn’t stop Aidan from living. Becoming a refugee at an isolated Spanish mission in northern California didn’t cause Aidan to lose heart. The all too brief interlude as a free seaman led to Aidan’s greatest test. He was grievously wounded, captured, and sold as a slave... (more)

Review of 'From the Heart' written by Tony Samara

By Allbooks Review , published on Oct 4, 2012

“The topic is consciousness—an aspect that everyone here and many

people around the world are putting a lot of effort into understanding—and

I would like to highlight some of the misunderstandings around

consciousness so that perhaps those misunderstandings, and those other

ideas that the mind likes to create to confuse us as individuals and also

as a society, and as a family and as a group of people, can be looked at

with clear intention and let go of.”

Review :The Man Who Could Not Make Up His Mind by Ed Brodow

By Allbooks Review , published on Sep 27, 2012

The opening of The Man Who Could Not Make Up His Mind is absolutely captivating. The main character, Clifford Day Vanderwall, struggles to make a decision of seemingly simple proportions: buy the chocolate cake, or the chocolate cookies? That it is such a monumental task to commit to one or the other, tells one fact about Vanderwall's character, one around which the entire short story revolves. The imagery with which author Brodow describes the dilemma, as well as the character's resolution, captures the reader in the mind of a man who has a vivid and realistic problem with making decisions.
