While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

Thank you for posting this well-written review. You give just enough information on the book without spoiling the book. I will consider reading the book after reading the review :D

Nice review! I like that Zenal ei7 gave such a clear picture about the book - "The Sword Swallower and a Chico Kid" by Gary Robinson and it's characters. Alcoholism, and its variations like drug addiction, smoking addiction,etc are big realities in life which a lot of people must come to face. The sword swallower and Chico kid are victimes who met each other and interacted to overcome this alcohol addiction. This will be read by me soon. :tiphat: :techie-studyingbrown:

This seems interesting. The fact that the characters are humorous and light-hearted draws me the most, even though I’m one of those who like action-packed thriller.

I also read the book and I am curious to see which of the adventures in their lives was your favorite?
Mine is the spider monkey situation.

Yes I enjoyed this book because the both characters helped each other, and they both like theirselves. I also recommend this for anyone thanks.

The book Sword Swallower and Chico kid, by Gary Robison, the book is okay but l think the writter needs to correct a few errors and introduce a new page or next chapter with a topic so that points do not get missed up, and confusing reader, then the whole book will be okay

This book didn’t appeal to me until I read your review. Thanks for making it come alive.
