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 hadn't actually read many zombie stories before this. It was free to borrow on my Kindle, part of the lending library for having a premium Amazon membership. I'm very glad that I chose to read it. It's a great story, translated from it's original Spanish version very well.

The story fol” 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.

Scarlet in” read more

“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.

krin5292 posted a review of Triangle: A Novel

“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.

“I liked this mystery set in Africa during the colonial period. I especially liked Vachell and Olivia working together to figure out who killed the Governor and why. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Murder on Safari.

“I liked this book about a small town in Maine and the people who live there. At first, I considered Olive to be aloof, but as the book progressed, I discovered she was more than I thought.

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

“To this day, the Bartimaeus Trilogy has continued to be one of my favorite series that I've ever read. It's extremely underrated, and even as an adult I still enjoy reading these books, even though they were probably meant for the 'young adult' group.

The first book in the series lays dow” read more

catcarlo posted a review of La coscienza di Zeno

“Per lunghe pagine, Zeno Cosini è di un’indisponenza irritante. Ipocondriaco e indulgente al vittimismo, ha però la fortuna di essere benestante di famiglia e di avere un amministratore oculato che gli permette di passare il tempo senza lavorare ascoltando i propri mali (immaginari, tanto da farg” read more

The series finally moves again!

“It's about time!

The frick-frackin' ZOTT went on for volumes and volumes, dragging everything to a screamingly frustrating halt, but author Yukito Kishiro must have finally had enough of it, because with this volume, the damned ZOTT concludes at long last!

This volume could, ar” read more

“La parte più bella e interessante di questo smilzo librino – che il suo autore definisce correttamente racconto e non romanzo – è il controcanto. Alternato alla narrazione dell’indagine di un capitano dei Carabinieri, il parmigiano Bellodi, riguardo due omicidi siciliani, vengono messe in sc” read more

“I know it's good. I wrote it and will be adding 11 more books to this series of children's books. The Mourning Tree is about a father and son that learn to cope with the loss of a loved one through nature. Subtle and unique this and other children's books in this series are to help children and e” read more

“I've put off reviewing this one because I'm not quite sure what to say. If you read the first one and liked it then you should like this one too. It's more of the same but without the mob element which is nice. It's still quick paced and exciting and the romance element is more in the forefront but ” read more

“Considering this book was written by a man from a woman's point of view, and even in spite of it, this book was excellent. Beautifully scripted, powerful and unrelenting in its portrayal of a truly twisted psychopath and the games played with the main character and her department. The ending was a s” read more

“The main character was soooo annoying. Whiny, bratty, spoiled and stupid. She was a mean girl.

The author was too out of touch to write YA. Teens don't care about Coach purses anymore. Also, don't put your characters in situations where they would cuss and then have them say stupid things ” read more

“Quite an inspiring book, I would say. Pain in inevitable but suffering is optional. When you run for a long distance, it's inevitable that you would feel pain but it's totally on you if you want to carry it any longer and suffer more or not. So, once again, I would say, "Pain is "inevitable but suff” read more

Dom posted a review of Fifty Shades of Grey

“This book is total garbage. People are only reading it because it's sexual content is very explicit. If people are actually impressed by this trash then you have not taste in literature whatsoever, and I suggest you get help. This book should be avoided at all costs. It's a disgrace to literature as” read more

“When We Wake is a book about the future. But I pray that it's not like any future I ever have to witness. I'm giving it 3.25 stars. I liked it, but the little things drag the rating down.

The characters were good. I didn't feel like anyone was too cliche and I was inves” read more

Why is the 3rd one so far away?

“`Bond saw luck as a woman, to be softly wooed or brutally ravaged, never pandered to or pursued. But he was honest enough to admit that he had never yet been made to suffer by cards or by women. One day, and he accepted the fact, he would be brought to his knees by love or by luck. When that happene” read more

“Dorling Kindersley's rather lavish book is perhaps more of a dinner table book than a coffee table book for one simple reason: it's huge. While you'll certainly need a lot of extra space just to turn the pages (male readers risk a hernia if the try reading it in their laps), it's a terrific overview” read more

“Not something you're likely to listen to more than once.
