Book Review-Less Than Three- Le-an Lai Lacaba

Wednesday, February 19, 2014



I have been reading Le-an's writing for a while. She is one of the bloggers who I have gotten to know through a facebook group. I kept telling her to get published-well she did and asked if I would read it and review it. Of course I said yes. Le-an attempted to send me a pdf copy but my computer would not read it-so I went in and bought the book! I recognized a couple of the short stories from the blog-others were brand new to me. I enjoyed reading them all. English is not Le-an's native tongue and there are quite a few grammatical errors but I was able to overlook them. These short stories tell of every kind of love and/or relationships that happen in life. I enjoyed reading these one at a time--I took my time on this book and let the stories sink into my soul! I love her disclaimer page!

"Everything in this book has been written entirely by the author, edited and reviewed by a lot of other people. All characters, places and time have been taken out of reality, though the stories are mostly fiction.   It should not be taken, quoted or extracted without the consent of the writer, as the law and karma would come back and haunt you and your great grandchildren.

You’ve been warned.   Some of these stories have been published to the author’s blog, dimperfectprincess.blogspot.com, but have been edited and rewritten plenty of times for this book.

For any violent reactions and negative actions you may want to do to this book, please do so as long as you bought it.   You can contact the writer through her email, lean.lacaba@ gmail.com. Or you could just throw your curses and rotten tomatoes to the wind where you won’t hurt anyone."

Sounds like a great book. I have been wanting to start my own writing but it seems I am a total mess of ideas that I can't put into one single story. lol. I am glad she has published her book I will definitely check it out.

She is an amazing author and I'll have to pick up her book on Amazon for my kindle. I can't wait to read it myself. A few of those stories I've probably read as well but I long for a full length novel too. :)
