I really enjoyed this book! I couldn't put this book down one night I even caught myself reading it at 6am with one eye open.I think the writer put an interesting story together out of lets say rumors from the past.For myself I dont care if she of mixed ethnic origins or not.I personaly think most of us are in the end.The author gave life to a great bunch of people that surrounded the queen at the time.I even found myself laughing at some of the comments made by them.Only thing I think I would c ...more

I received this book from the Early Reviewer and it was the first one so I was really nervous about reading it. Fortunately it grabbed me from the start. I realized from the first page that this was going to be something completely different than what I have ever read. The characters are completely down to earth and realistic (well except for the vampire part and the magic part). The main character brings to light just how screwed up life can be an how sometimes you just want to give up but can' ...more
I know it cannot be, but I feel like I am the only one in the world now searching out the works of H.M.Tomlinson, the British writer and journalist (1873-1958). London River is his lyrical, gritty reportage of the lost world of the docks of London in the age of sail and the early years of steamers and tramps. It is marvelous to delve into, to savour and re-read. He reminds me a lot of Joseph Mitchell and they covered a lot of the same ground, though continents apart. Just about everything he wro ...more
I can certainly see how this book was quite a (disagreeable) shock to anyone who expected to find a variation on the Lord of the Flies. Whereas that sociological exegesis required one to look outward, this purely psychological study requires an unrelenting introversion.[return][return]A fascinating investigation into the core of the individual. Take that individual, strip him of Civilization and of Culture, minimize sensory distraction and force humanity to look at its naked self; the resultant ...more

Claire manages a return to her lover Jamie (this isn't a spoiler per se; it's on the back cover of the book). Fleeing the turmoil and politics of Scotland two decades after the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie at Culloden, Claire and Jamie end up in the West Indies, where Claire faces an old frenemy. The voyage and destination give Ms. Gabaldon the excuse to insert pirates, vodoo, and a virtuous chance for Claire and Jamie to free black slaves.[return]Again, not a terrible book. Fast, bouncy, rea ...more

A very quick, but not easy, read. It's horrible and heartbreaking the things that Precious Jones goes through, but her desire to push through is inspiring. The writing style does make it a bit difficult to read at times, but I do understand why it is written in this way. I do wish the ending did a little more to wrap things up and show if Precious finally did get the better life she was working so hard toward.

This book was, by far, one of the worst trunk novels I've ever read. And that's pretty bad if you consider the fact that trunk novels are usually terrible. I was reading it, praying for a point - but at the end, I realize there was no point and I had a bad taste in my mouth. The characters, as sketchy as many of them were, had some potential...But they were just written by the wrong man.

Nice connecting short story to the series. Ash & Puck are at it again together. Even though they are enemies they are working together to get into the Summer Court - Arcadia to gather up a human child that Queen Titania had stolen from the Exile Queen Leannsidhe to return her, they are forced into this by a promise Prince as made to Leannside on behalf of the now Iron Queen Meghan.

ja he acabat de llegir les Cendres d'Àngela, un llibre biogràfic de Frank McCourt que ens descriu les penuries d'una família per sobreviure èpoques de fam però amanit amb l'humor dels personatges i la innocència de les criatures. Molt trist però al mateix temps és el reflexe actual de la vida de moltes famílies que no en tenen ni per menjar.

All of the reviews by other authors that they print on the cover are right. Mo Hayder is sooo good![return][return]I did figure out who the bad guy was, but that didn't spoil it at all. I hope Jack and Flea sort themselves out soon though.
Apr 09, 2012 Grace rated it really liked it
Katie and Owen end up with lots of obstacles in their path to romance in this outing of the book. It's a good sturdy addition to the series, but not an ending I liked. Hopefully, in the next book things will be better.

This philosophical YA science fiction novel by a New Zealand author has some interesting ideas and a killer conclusion, but I found the framing story irritating. I'm sure it would have appealed a lot to the teenage me, though.

Beautiful writing, just carried me away. All the romance of the myth of Dracula but with a nice amount of horror and suspense to keep it interesting. I could not put this book down.
Clint Flatt
This book is suggested by "The Dangerous Book for Boys". It is a good suspense, chase book. Good for boys who don't want to read or fear reading larger size books.
This book is a reasonable, if unspectacular, introduction to set theory and set operations. It is suitable for undergraduate level mathematics.
