My best friend gave me this book, but sadly I didn't particularly like it. It wasn't necessarily bad, but it wasn't for me. Who knows, maybe if I re-read it, I'll like it.

EDIT: I won't change my rating, because I don't do stuff like that unless I have a legitimate reason to hate the book, but I will say that the author said something racist to me, so... yea.

I bought this cute indie book through my Kindle. The writing was structured in a way that made it hard to read; it didn't flow. At some points the writing is pretty sloppy. I did like the overall theme and ideas, but the way they were presented was less than santisfactory. The tone of the book came off as preachy, which really turned me off. I did finish the book. Overall I wouldn't be able recommend this book to anyone. :(

Not. Again.

What can I possibly say about this book? It was awesome. Normally I don't say that about a hippie book, but I have to admit it exceeding my expectations... Though I still wish there was some zombie violence or a murderer on the lose... And the covers a little cheery... But, all of that put aside it was great.

Carz, you did a good job with this book. :] (Next time put a murderer on the lose!!!)

I loved the story. The ONLY issue I had with this book was the grammatical errors...commas, semi-colons, etcetera, where they shouldn't be. It threw me off enough to almost want to stop. I had to keep telling myself to ignore it so I could read into the story itself.

I did fall in love with the characters. They kept me involved. :)

The character creeps me out in the sample. Therefore, I am not buying it. The syntax is also weird.

Take a chance on life.

Children of the Flower Power in an amazingly written book that you would want to curl up with if you're seeking for a funny, adventurous, unique night. Maybe I'm understating things, Children of the Flower Power had definitely changed my perceptions in so many things! It's just that, I never had so much fun reading than I did with this. This book covers from love to friendship, to life and family, and maybe a bit of stubborness.

Quoting Ian, "Far out!!"

Children Of The Flower Power is a very unique story. It had all the elements of an allround novel: Romance, Drama, Humour, Suspense, Sorrow and lots of Naughtiness. It also involved people of all age groups.
A very straightforward storyline with one sad, surprising twist. Each prominent character had a small, independent story for themselves, too, which progressed along the main plot.
I got more and more emotionally attached to the characters as I read on.

This was a great read. You become the characters and feel their laughter and loving. It is beautifully written and captures you, the moment you start to read it. It is a book that can not be put down becuase you too are or the journey that the Children of the Flower Power take. A story of love and finding yourself and making dreams come true.

This book is not the my usual type of reading, but i loved it. There were sad moments and there were happy moments. Basicly the Children of The Flower Power was... wait for it.. "Far out!"

By the way Carroll, the 6+ months spent on writing this was definitely worth it!

I think I'm bias in a way because the only reason I read this book was because it had a lot 1960s referces and I love the 60's or the late 1960s
