Best and Worst Kindle Books on Amazon
Page 1 2
From: guest (Roger) , 87 months, post #1
There are now a lot of tg subject books on Amazon. Many seem to be retreads of stuff free elsewhere on the net.

Let's start a thread of (short) reviews ... or maybe just a 1 to 5 (bad to excellent) star ranking system? Amazon has its own star system, so our stars should be specifically along a metamorphose interest scale.

I'll start with...

Tiffany Twisted: ****

Would you mind to write a rewiev and the reasons you give it five, four, trhee, two or one star, it will made the top rank more interisting for us. Thanks!

I only read a few kindle tg books, oddly enough the best and worst are both by the same author Gregor Daniels

The best, Envy this. was a fun romp through experiments with gender mixing as a girl tries out different gender combos on her boyfriend. I'd give it three stars but despite an average rating it was enjoyable. If the girl changed two it's get four. if they both changed and tried non equivalent swaps and experimented with sexuality it'd be five. But as it is I have it as three as only the guy changed. But still it was fun.

The worst, Stuck with My Sisters Body did things like mainly being sex, adding neat perceptual tricks that were NOT explored or played with much, and making the girl with the guys body suddenly like men. I put it at one and a half stars due to not exploring the perceptual tricks and making the girl instantly like women as soon as she gets a male body.

A Woman's Passion -- 5 stars. I love this book.

Many positive and negative reviews on Metamorphose ... but unlike cj, I'm not sure how to find and do links to them.

From: guest (Mr Nobody) , 87 months, post #6
Little Brown Girl was fantastic, both in length and quality. As a married guy with two kids, I don't really like broadcasting my fetishes any further than I have to, or I would have given it a five-star review.

Legend of Ka-Ron is also quite good.

Anyone read this? The reviews make it sound good, and I read a free excerpt that looked competently written:

Weird Wednesday is pretty good.

From: guest (Caitlinb) , 87 months, post #10
The "Turning" is competently written, is truly a full length novel.

It's greatest strength and weakness if its focus on a group of young Australian men.

It's slightly to the serious-examination side of stories(in contrast to "nominal excuse" for sex scenes end of the spectrum).

All in all it is definitely worth getting, but short of a 5 star entry.


From: guest (JK) , 86 months, post #11
Just finished "The Turning" and on a 1-10, give it a 5.

From: guest (JK) , 86 months, post #12
"The Turning" (kindle) is $2.99 U.S.
570 KB
Print Length: 282 pages

A fair price

It just gets me how people want $2.99 for something 177 KB and Print Length: 25 pages.

The whole Kindle TG book thing is a bit of a minefield.

It's all too easy to self-publish on Kindle, meaning that many amateur authors who would normally post their stories for free on fictionmania, are now selling them instead.

I would never dream of charging for my stories. I like to think I write well, but I know that what I produce is far from professional.

I'm not saying there's not some good stories out there, worthy of your change (as have been mentioned above). It's just there's so many others where you could find much better written stories for free on fictionmania if you know where to look.

From: guest (JK) , 86 months, post #14
Have posted a couple of times on Fictionmania, how much I appreciate all authors, for sharing their stories for free!



From: guest (The searcher) , 86 months, post #15
the description on this book seemed intriguing...

From: guest (thesaint) , 86 months, post #16
Could be a winner. I like the writing style and I found an interesting newsblurb about the publisher (probable author).

After reading the preview I had to buy it. So far it's shaping up to be the new A WOMAN'S PASSION.

From: guest (Roger) , 83 months, post #19
Hey, Saint, any further comments on JUST LIKE A WOMAN?
(Always seem to agree with your taste.)

And like Jessica, I'm starting to get really skeptical of those $2.99 self-published kindle books. Have wasted my money too many times.

From: guest (thesaint) , 83 months, post #20
Hey Roger,

Wow. I really jumped the gun on JUST LIKE A WOMAN. It started off interesting but then it become really repetitive and I gave up on it half way through. I don't have a lot of money to spare and I kind of regret it, but if you got $3 the first third held my interest. I think part of the reason I quit was the protagonist acclimated to being a woman too quickly. I also really got frustrated with a lack of detail and character development.

I've heard A WOMAN'S PASSION is a cross-dressing fantasy. I never understood that. I love AWP because more than most it gives a detailed experience of (presumably) what it's like to be a woman. I'm curious about physical as well as the social and psychological experiences and most fiction just doesn't do that. One of my favorite scenes in AWP was when the new woman gets harassed on a jog. That's as interesting to me as all the romance. It shows a different side of life I'll never experience.

The last story that I really really liked was Opening Doors by Dawna Tompson.
The physical transformation takes place over the entire story but the sociological begins immediately. The main character is immediately treated, for good and bad, like "one of the girls" when he gets a new office job. He starts to slowly transform from a middle-aged, balding, divorcee into a pretty and self-assured young woman.

It was a hell of a page turner and a really pleasant surprise. I suppose you could argue it has "identity death" but really it felt like gradual identity augmentation. I saw it as the character slowly embracing his true identity.

In other recommendations I caved in and bought The Turning. I enjoyed it quite a bit because of the slowly changing relationship between two friends. It was also quite funny, but the biggest downside was´┐Żagain´┐Żnot enough detail. Still, it was one of the best stories that focused on sociological changes and interpersonal relationships.
