5.0 out of 5 stars Chills and Thrills!, June 28, 2016
By Theresajcbs

Paul has the gift, his writing is top notch from the prose to the tales themselves. His stories are unique and creepy and I had goosebumps! That is no easy feat - superb skills. I can't wait to get into his next book.

THE GRAMMAR TEACHER
A cult of assertiveness, that’s what I call it. Preferring a self-confident student to a talented one, hiring not the best employee but the most appealing one, considering a confident and attractive appearance more important than actual achievement. The idea that ‘success in life’ depends on assertiveness and charm rather than actual performance has become the norm. I find this modern inclination disturbing even scary. Bolstering not the substance but the exterior (or is this the substance now?) seems to me like a slippery road, neither fruitful nor just. But it looks as though it can’t be stopped.

‘The Grammar Teacher’ is a story about an old-fashioned, hardworking teacher who, with devotion and perseverance, makes her students excel in grammar. Yet in spite of that, the principal hires a new grammar teacher, assertive and attractive. Frustration that her achievements are unrecognized makes her doubt her entire set of values. The resultant breakdown in her moral and social character is literally a loss of integrity and a loss of rules of behavior – making her act in a way entirely foreign to her previous way of life.

‘The Grammar Teacher’ is the third novella in Five Selves, published by Holland House Books.

My review of "Burned" by Benedict Jack . Part of a Urban Fantasy series set in London England.

Very well done, great action scenes. I have used previous actions scenes as a model for mine. All of the characters stay the same throughout the book. There is consistency in the world and in Verus' personality and way of thinking. The descriptions of London are great. I know it a lot better now. The situations are well formed.

My one criticism is with the Main character. Not with Jacka's writing but with Verus himself. He is not always likable and is prone to panic. Over all a nice, caring guy though. But Jacka does good with how he writes Verus. Heroes need consistent flaws.

So I recommend it strongly but since this is the 7th in a series read the other first. :)

Tiffany Reisz has yet again written a story that takes your breath away. The Bourbon Thief is a fantastic story of love, betrayal, secrets, deceit, tradition, old money & vengeance.

"With his poignant ability to address certain subject matter with clarity and honesty and an authentically described coastal setting, it’s easy to imagine Stow as a kind of forebear to Tim Winton." Kernel Fiona Fyfe​ reviews the Text Publishing​ Classic THE SUBURBS OF HELL from Randolph Stow.
