Koontz, in my opinion, isn't a terribly consistent creative writer. The culprit in many of his books usually winds up being some kind of shadow government bullshit. This is a refreshing read. This book even made me look under my bed some nights...
What if the government knew about Superman? Found Kal-el, raised him to loyal only to country and government, and later he found out that everything that he had been told was a lie? If you would like to read something along the lines of that, then pick up Supreme Power.
A friend of mine constantly recommended this book to me. Not being a fan much of romance in my novels I took a shot with this one. It has so many romantic clichés, but I can overlook that because of the easy likable protagonist.
This is a short read about the man, myth, and legend of Tupac Shakuar. It seems to jump around pretty fast while amazingly still keeping plenty of detail. Not by any means the best autobiography of Tupac, but it isn't a bad add to any book collection. The low price doesn't hurt either. (I purchased my copy for $5.)
Usually in a lot of (true crime) Mafia books the Gambino crime family gets most of the attention. Due to the ostentatious attitude and blatant disregard for secrecy of one of the last Godfathers, John Gotti. This novel focus on one of the smallest of the five families, the Lucchese. I enjoyed this read, but I have read reports that Volkman made up some of the conversations in the novel. Doesn't stop it from being a great read though.
Started out extremely slow in my opinion, but came packed with alot of information. From the coming of the immigrants, to prohibition, to the rise of power you are there for every back stab and Made Man's shady deal. Another excellent read in Mafia books this year.
One of the best mob books to come out in the last few years. One Cuban F.B.I. agent infiltrates the Gambino crime family and has very colorful side stories. A must read for any Mafia fan. Soon to be a movie, directed by Steven Solderberg.
Almost twice a year I will read this groundbreaking graphic novel. Now I am not one of those people who will purchase anything with a Watchmen logo on it, (the two down loadable games where utter shite!) but I love this story.
Forget all of the glittery beautiful vampires from the Twilight series. These vampires are deformed, hideous, and spread like a viral infection! It's a long read, but worth it. I cannot wait to read Book Two!
