Random reviews from readers of Things I Remember


“Everyone should read this book. Surprising and enlightening . A truly unique collection that you will want to keep and read again and again.”

“Made me laugh, sigh, gasp, and gave me a desire for more. You peaked interest, had elements of surprise, and again, left this reader wanting more. I loved how I was ‘right on’ with you and then at other times, ‘completely lost.’ :). I chuckled at so many. Loved your humor, felt your pain, and experienced life right along with you. Well done, well done.”

“I’m glad I read this book. In fact, I am going to read it again. Am sure I’ll laugh again, agree (or disagree), and this time, figure out the ‘head-scratchers.'”

“Wonderfully vivid and imaginative. Great first collection of fiction. Memorable. Very much looking forward to further collections.”

Things I Remember is a book one wants to be able to enjoy at leisure. It is not only something to be read, it is also something to be absorbed — maybe together with a glass of good wine. These are not ordinary poems and writings. These are insights hidden in seemingly simple sentences. Only a highly intelligent person with lots of wisdom and life experience can write such poetry. Gail Winfree is such a person. One can safely say he is a philosopher — mind you, a daring philosopher, who recklessly defies convention. — Having read this book, I find myself with an extended mind. And I am sure that at some time, with a glass of good wine, to make sure that my mind stays extended, I’ll read this book all over.”

“I loved this book from start to finish. I wasn’t sure what it would be but it was funny, interesting, sometimes sad, sometimes slightly weird ( which I loved ). Just my kind of book. I can’t wait to read the next one!”
