Non Review of Trash

Book not finished.

I read a book last week which was probably the 162 book I have read for review.

I will not name the author of or the title of the novel. If I did name names and review this manuscript, it would be all negative.

Either the author did not get the proper training or was put on the wrong track by uninformed advisers.

I completed the story of a woman who slept with the milkman for dairy products she could not afford. She slept with a teenage gardener, because she loved his body and didn’t have the money to pay him. And she had sex with the Fedex man to get her free deliveries.

Then she fell in love with a police officer because he was attentive but continued he sex ventures with her debtors. Obviously this woman character and the female author are disturbed. The character, according to the author, had a tough life which led to her whore-ship.

You’ll never know the author or the title unless you have access to my Amazon purchases.

Sorry, there is no review this week, because what I read was trash.

Review of Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge, A Love Story

Starring D.B. Sweeney and Mora Kelly

I have watched this movie a number of times and still enjoyed the ending. The story up to it is conflict between the two partnered figure skaters who are put together because of their situations.

Mora plays a spoiled prime Doña of the figure skating world and Sweeney’s character is an unwanted hockey player. Their personalities conflict at the beginning into a rivalry to show which is best.

When the respect of each other’s abilities leads to love, they have a major conflict. They each realize their need for one another which leads to a climatic end result.

On the ice, they find each other with a joining result after each finds the best in each other.

Review of Confessions of a Caffeine Addict

Confessions of a Caffeine Addict

40 Stories edited by Marina Kushner

Reviewed by Roy Murry, author.

By the time I finished this book, I had at least a hundred caffeine drinks: coffee and Pepsi. I am overstating my consumption. My caffeine intake is much less.

The stories in these ‘I did it,’ the people are candid about their addictions. And it seems that one must first accept the addiction to come it.

Each addict had their starting and ending points, if they were as candid as it seems. Some had returned to their consuming ways and rehabbed out to normality. But that lurking need remained until they found an inner epiphany.

Overcoming a need that is a habit, for these tales of insecurity prevailed throughout. It was the realization that the body functions better without a ridiculous amount of caffeine. This turned things around for many.

All in all, the stories were insightful, but not compelling enough to dilute one’s addiction. I feel that a life’s story a la biography would be more compelling.

Each story is an interesting read and done in such a way that you can read a few stories with your morning coffee, or not. The book costs as much as a Starbucks Latte. You decide which you need most.

Review of Blogger's Guide

Blogger’s Guide to Absolutely Nothing

Blogged by Seumas Gallacher

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

I had absolutely nothing to do this afternoon, so I looked into my Kindle’s library for something to read. I have read and reviewed two of Seumas’ books (Vengeance Wears Black and Savage Payback) on this very blog.

I noticed The Blogger’s Guide…and thought what the hell. I got Absolutely Nothing to Do. I clicked onto the opening page and didn’t put the Kindle down until the end of this fun filled comic relief from my daily chores as a writer, blogger, and now Social Media Director of American Indian Veterans Memorial, Inc.

I was entertained from beginning to the end. The books of his I reviewed are thrillers that kept my attention. In these blog posts, his humor kept me laughing click after click of the forward arrow.

His knowledge of blogging and Indie authorship shed some new light on my knowledge of self-publishing, which I may try with my third novel Homeless in Homestead. I haven’t enjoyed my experiences with two Independent Publishers.

For those newbie writers out there, Seumas’ fun words of blogging wisdom maybe what you are looking for in helping you career. At least you’ll be laughing your afternoon away as I did today.

Review of McClintock's War

Johnny McClintock’s War

Written by Gerry McCullough

Reviewed by Roy Murry

The concerns of man with the respect towards others are based on many factors, none of which binds us together as living beings closer than the belief in a God. We gather in groups: countries, religious, military or political that do not give us true fulfillment, but are the corner stone of our existence from the time of birth.

In John Henry McClintock’s War, Ms. McCullough uses the life of an Irishman, brought up in the turmoil of World War I and the internal strife of his beloved country, bringing to light the sometimes ignorance that us humans live by. Wars have been fought by man since the Stone Age, but it is the internal war within us that Ms. McCullough shares in the life adventure of her main character.

It is that war that John Henry must come to terms with. He sees death all around him because of illogical reasons. He muddles through because of his love for Rose and the God they believe in, not the religious groups that separate them.

John Henry’s journey is a difficult one, knowing the historical facts which we get a touch of in this fast pace novel. Ms. McCullough prose is somewhat poetic at times, but her writing gets to the root of evil vs good in the human mind. This is where her John Henry excels: he sees the good and over comes the evil.

I recommend this short adventure into the turmoil of war. Many of us have been there and are still trying to overcome what John Henry overcame. We have to be reminded of it from time to time, as Gerry McCullough has done so elegantly.

Review of GOTU


Written by Mike McNeff

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Crossing our borders, have been a controversial political problem from the union of these United States of America. What crosses those legal divisions are the contention of debate?

G O T U is a thrilling story of men who protect our rights to be a sovereign free nation, free from illegal drugs or human trade. Arizona is one of our states, where the border has been violated numerous times.

Commanded by Police Sergeant Robin Mariette, a special operations unit is set up to protect the Arizona border from Mexican trafficking. They make a major bust on the USA side which upsets a Mexican kingpin who looks for revenge close to the unit’s home.

Legal actions are put in place just as the kingpin is about to get his payback. This puts Sergeant Mariette’s team into action that will have international complications. The results are overwhelming.

McNeff’s story is fast pace and can be read in one sitting. The characters are believable and well thought out. Although this is fiction, I felt like I was reading a true account of men who bravely protect our borders.

I feel we will be reading more of Mariette’s unit in the future. The ending left the door open for more action packed adventures like this one.
