Last December I was in London for holidays.
I love this city, I love walking all around its streets. I love take the tube, the bus and trying to discover unknown places. Well, I know. Foyles is not an unknown place. It’s a very very big book shop in Charing Cross Road.
I entered in this realm and I was enchanted by all that books everywhere and spread on five levels.
Here you are my quick review of the first of four parts of the Carla Rita Francesca Monticelli’s project Red Desert. A novel that will you move from Earth to Mars. A great story available in ebook on Amazon.com.
As said this is just the first part. Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli is an Italian indie writer that now arrived with her first English publication to the major ebook stores (Amazon, Kobo, Google Play, Apple iBookStore, B&N).
Usually I don’t read Sci-Fi books, but I heard good opinions about these short stories by Luca Rossi, an indie author, so I purchased Galactic Energies on Amazon. Luca Rossi’s text moves through human feelings and the events that involved and that still involve us every day, but in fantastic text form.
When I bought this book I did for the usual reasons. I liked the cover, the title was evocative, the plot looked interesting, I read the first chapters and I told myself: “I’m going to like this book”. And so it’s been. Sometimes, in the first chapters writers cheat the readers, they give their best writing and then you get lost, but it’s NOT this the case. Well, usually, English and American writers don’t do this, they are really capable. Read the rest of this entry »
I read this beautiful book. I was intrigued by the Italian Book Cover Edition, the title and synopsis. It thrilled me so much that I finished it in just 2 days.
I read the presentation on the Publisher website (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) and I thought: «Interesting». You can find also an excerpt of the book in PDF on their website. After I read it I realized that I would have liked it. I wanted to take it in e-book, but it costs just one dollar less than the hardcover book and in the Kobo Store it has the DRM, so I took it as hardback in Italian edition. It has a nice hardback cover, just like I love.
