“I found her life fascinating! I didn't know much about her before I read the book, so I kept my mind open with what I was about to find out about her. Her life was filled with so much drama and tragedy, but she always maintained her dignity throughout it, which is admirable. She was a child star, a” read more

catcarlo posted a review of L'Ussaro Sul Tetto

“Angelo Pardi è un miracolato. A cavallo o a piedi, alla luce del sole o sfuggendo le insidie, attraversa cinque mesi e quasi cinquecento pagine di colera accusando al più un principio di mal di pancia (sconfitto con due bottiglie di borgogna): eppure non si tira indietro, anzi si danna a soccorrer” read more

“This is one of those things best experienced twice, once as a kid and then again as an adult or teenager. There are things you wont get the first time that only a more mature person would get, and it only gets better as time progresses. Brilliant in every use of the word (except as a shiny object, t” read more

catcarlo posted a review of Tutti I Nomi

“Non è semplice entrare in sintonia con questo decimo romanzo di Saramago, uscito nella seconda metà degli anni Novanta. Prima di tutto per l’approccio ‘creativo’ alla grammatica e alla sintassi: i dialoghi sono scritti senza altra separazione fra le battute che una virgola e contribuiscono a” read more

“Vedovo e sovrappeso, Pereira conduce una vita solitaria dirigendo la pagina culturale di un piccolo giornale di Lisbona. E’ il capo di se stesso finchè nella sua vita entra Monteiro Rossi: il motivo per cui lo assume come praticante non è chiaro nemmeno a Pereira, ma il giovane – che pure non ” read more

“A very long read, but worth every second of it. This tells the story not simply from the eyes of besotted fan, but it is a pretty straight forward look at the life of Moon The Loon. It'll tear you from side to side, not knowing whether to like him or not, but it is all part of the ride. How did I” read more

“Undoubtedly a great musician, but this book is nothing more than the ramblings of a man who appears to have a total absence of moral fibre. Which ever way you look at it, if this book is really who Pete Townshend is... I'm glad I found his music instead of him.” read more

catcarlo posted a review of Il Contesto

“In quello che è il suo quarto romanzo, lo scrittore siciliano è esplicito fin dal sottotitolo: ‘una parodia’. In un Paese immaginario, qualcuno dà il via a una serie di assassinii che hanno in comune solo il mestiere delle vittime, tutte appartenenti a vario titolo alla magistratura. Il caso ” read more

Not enough 'Life'

“This is a book dedicated to the legendary Katharine Hepburn. This (very thin) book was released shortly after her death in 2003. Although I did enjoy the majority of this book, I still couldn't help but notice that it was lacking a lot of stuff that could have made this book perfection. What it lack” read more

“I started this book within a day of finishing the prequel, Cinder. Both books were absolutely fantastic. They're fresh takes on old tales, and kind of do a similar thing as the TV show Once Upon A Time, in the way that the author interconnects multiple fairytales into one story.

“Cinder is a very interesting new take on the Cinderella story. It's set hundreds of years in the future, after a couple more World Wars. By this time, humans have long since settled on the moon and become a new race called the Lunars. The first installment in this series introduces you to the main h” read more

“I enjoyed this book of not only researching family history, but living in the ancestors' home village and meeting new relatives. I liked how Jen learned not to stand outside as an observer but instead participate in daily activities, thus making new and valued friends.

“This was a very good book about people and their stories. The ones they tell, and the ones told about them. I liked Esther's interactions with the interviewer as well as her granddaughter's friend George Bostwick composing music based on DNA.

Maggie posted a review of Jurassic Park: A Novel

“Like many movies, the Jurassic Park film by Steven Spielberg has many differences from it's literary source. The book itself, as always, is far more detailed. And honestly, it's as if the film and book are two very different stories. Yes, both revolve around a dinosaur theme park, and yes, many char” read more

tersanay posted a review of Hallowed

“Sequels are hard. Usually they work one of three ways. Either they just serve to get form book one to book three, they elevate the story and amp interest even more or they fall flat. For me, Hallowed fell flat. It was okay but it wasn't anything new. Yet again Clara is torn between 2 boys and t” read more

Rikers posted a review of Longinus The Vampire

“Great book! Lots of action, horror and some weird vampire sex. Longinus makes most other vampire heros look like wimps. The massive fight scene in Central Park is very memorable. Also love it when he rescues the little girl from the vampire warehouse. And the final fight with the Vampire Lord is epi” read more
