The Second Science Fiction Megapack: 25 Modern and Classic Tales by Masters
The Second Science Fiction Megapack: 25 Modern and Classic Tales by Masters
Price: 0.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Quaint, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a collection of science fiction short stories, mainly from the early days of the genre. I never looked up the provenance of any of them, but a couple seem to be more recent. So the impression you get from reading them is 'quaint' as sci-fi writing has become far more sophisticated, demonstrating much more imagination, as the years have passed, So the best I can say is that we have here the literary equivalent of 'easy listening'. Ok for a bit of a diversion, if you don't want to be excited, thrilled or challenged!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Present, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My mother-in-law, who is a lady of advancing years, wanted an easy-to-read watch that she could wear as a pendant, rather than having the irritation that had started to be caused by watch straps. It's ok, but the construction felt a little clunky (although it's still going strong). My main objection is that, upon receipt, we find that the watch face is mounted the right way up. Seems a strange complaint, but for a pendant watch it needs to be upside-down, so that when it is lifted up to look at, it will be the right way up. Schoolboy error in design.

This was given as a present, so I can only go on the response. Since they were specifically requested by the recipient they clearly had a reputation, and seem to do what is required. I can't comment on longevity as they are not that old yet, but no reason to suspect poor workmanship.

What can I say? This is a long tale over many books, and this one is as good as any other. Brilliant story-telling.

Given as a present, but I understand that it nicely does the job, and the recipient is happy enough, it seems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Supernatural Tale, 22 Jan 2014

Not supernatural in a ghost or vampire sort of way, but in the 'powers' possessed by the various characters. Well worth a look, and I shall be reading the sequel.

Does exactly what it's required to do - kneads dough, and makes a good job of it. Can't comment on longevity 'cos not had it long, but so far just fine.

What can I say? Does the job. Not had it long enough to know if it will last, but it certainly seems well-made.

Well written, well thought out, moves along nicely and has enough depth to its characters to be interesting. I'll be reading more of these.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story Spoiled, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, it is a good story, with enough action to keep you interested. Three stars only because the characters are not very well defined or developed, the attempts to impart some pathos to the relationship with Sofia in the early stages are clumsy and inconsistent, to say the least and, worst of all, the book has not been proof-read and edited. This results in a writing style that is 'write as you speak' with clumsy figures of speech and many grammatical and spelling errors. There is even incorrect us of words, and incomplete sentences, as if the author doesn't properly know his English. Indeed, this might well be the case, so all the more need for someone to go over the text and correct it. Most important rule? If you're going to self-publish, make sure someone with good English skills corrects all of your errors before you press 'print'.
