Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"The Libertines Motorcycle Club: An Outlaw Is Born" is my first offering into the world of fiction. When I began writing, I wanted to tell a brief story. Then, as the story developed, I realized that I had too much to say with only one book.
 
While the majority of this book is fiction, there is quite a bit of actual events that took place in this book. Of course, names are changed, characters are meshed together and also created out of thin air. For those readers who don't know me personally, I challenge you to decide what is real and what is fiction. If I provided you a set of cheat notes to explain, I think you would be quite surprised to know where the differences are.
 
The next installment is now available entitled "Deception and Betrayal"

Sons of Anarchy, this ain't.

Max Billington needs to read at least a dozen books on how to write and then hire a ruthless editor to whip him into shape. He writes in a strange combination of short, choppy sentences that read like "See Jane run" mixed with annoying run-ons where he can't even keep the point of view straight. Toss in all the typos, incorrect grammar and punctuation, plus a ton of horrible cliches, and you've got a recipe for literary disaster.

Oh, and by the way, it's obvious the author and his friends are deliberately planting fake glowing reviews, then unfairly attacking any critical reviews in the comments section and by marking them "unhelpful."

Self-published or not, it's not easy writing a book. I get that. But that doesn't mean what you wrote is any good. There's an old saying authors have, "Your first million words are crap" (paraphrased to avoid censorship filters). In Max Billington's case, if he doesn't humbly and sincerely take the criticisms he's getting from myself and others to heart and use them to grow as a person and an author, then he might need an extra few million words to get his *beep* together--like maybe a hundred million.

Neat storyline but the writing needs work, mispellings and such made for the lower rating. I felt I was reading something written for middle school the way it started out...needs a good editor to round it out into a great story.

I thought this book was well written with a good enough story line. it seemed to move a little to quickly and by doing that left out some details to how it. arrived so quickly

Great story but not very well written. The book was difficult to read because of the errors within, but I enjoyed the story and the flow.

Very simply written and a simple, rather uncreative, plot. The book is poorly edited and very amateurish. The story and writing style are void of any depth. Predictable. Unrealistic at times. Laughably bad in places. Poor character development.

It's readable, but I'd say the writing style is more aimed at a pre-teen than a mature reader. Nice effort to write this book, but it's not up to any kind of commercial caliber.

All the stereotypical outlaw motorcycle gang stuff is in there. But nothing original. Actual - rather than a plot, the story is really just a ramble of stereotypical biker lifestyle. A yuppie accountant becomes a murdering biker thug - just because he was bored and his wife was ignoring him. Is that the plot? I guess so. Unrealistic.

This is supposed to be the first of a three book series. But this first book doesn't finish; it just sets up the second book. Seems to stop in the middle. I think what we have here is really one story - one book - that the author decided he needed to sell in three small parts.

I won't be buying the next books. At least give me the whole story for the price I paid for this book.

I wanted to like this book; I even bought the sequel and read it before writing this review because supposedly it was greatly improved...but it wasn't. The second one is every bit as bad as the first one. And that's REALLY bad. I almost refused to even start reading the first book because the name of the club is so lame. By definition it seems perfect, but it's an archaic word that few people are familiar with. And it sounds so limp-wristed. Just how does it strike fear into someone to learn that they have just disrespected a Libertine? Hell, Liberace sounds more fearsome. Individual gang members also have stupid road names. The worst is the ladies' man "Pepper", a name usually reserved for gay characters in fiction.

In addition to poorly developed characters, the writing throughout BOTH books one and two of the Libertine trilogy is just abysmal (I won't waste another 99 cents for the third installment of this trash). There are so many examples of poor grammar that it's easier and accurate just to state that EVERY sentence contains serious mistakes of some kind...and not just minor typos, which are bad enough in a book people pay money for (yes, I just ended a sentence with a preposition, but this review is free). Billington writes in an extremely irritating style wherein he repeats proper names over and over instead of using pronouns. One horrid example: "Terry's logic was typical of Terry, but Terry knew Connor could afford it." Yes, that is an actual sentence from the first book! And there are hundreds more like that. Punctuation is almost non-existent, and when a comma is used it's almost always where it doesn't belong. This "writer" doesn't have a clue what a semi-colon is for, and should refrain from using them altogether.

Great series man. Yea their were some typos and grammar problems, but who gives a damn about that, I didn't buy the books to proofread, bought me for a good biker story. I don't want a book written by a college professor on a subject they have no real knowledge of. You had a story to tell with some real world experience behind it and made a hell of a series in my opinion. I wish more people would, maybe I could read more then. I'd like to have seen it continue to a few more books but I'm happy with three, and I rooted for old Conner to come out on top. Would have like to see it play out further. He'll if you get bored you can always go back and continue an alternate ending book or two or three. Well played max, I tip my hat to guys like you and roadblock and Troy giving us good stories from people who have been around. Let me know if you write any more biker stories or any more to the libertines story, I'll be a buyer for sure.
