I probably could have read just the first and just the last book in this series and been as happy. I liked the ending. We had the good vs evil struggle. We had closure on the stories and many of the characters like Caine. Why finally understood how t...more

I want to give the “OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide” book 5 stars and the CD with the practice exam 2 stars. I'll compromise and give the whole entity 4 stars. What's wrong with the CD you ask? It requires Windows. When I installed it o...more

I like this way better than the previous book in the series. It's still violent, but less gory. At least I'm reading and not skipping anymore.

I like Toto with his lie detector skills. I really like switching between the Outside, Little Petey as a me...more

Ewww! I skimmed a lot. This book was way more graphic than the others. There's nothing wrong with it per se. I gave it two stars based on personal preference, not because the book is bad.

I liked that we got to see two parts of the FAYZ. (military bas...more

“Java 8 New Features: A Practical Heads-Up Guide” is the first book I had read by the publisher P8 Tech. All their e-books are $9.99 (which should make Amazon happy; That's rare for a tech book). The difference is that the paper book is $19.99 (or 13...more

I like how the series introduces new characters and locations as the series goes on. I wasn't expecting new locations given they are in a contained area, but we got an island owned by movie starts and 5 kids. There was some "yeah, right" as they flew...more

Clear rating
“Murach's Java Servlets and JSPs” third edition looks and reads like a Murach book. This is good. It's always nice when a book delivers what you are expecting. If you haven't read a Murach book before, it is a book meant for beginners. On each set of...more

I found out about this book from "The Atlantic" article. I enjoyed reading it. There were a lot of personal anecdotes in it which helped make it easy to read. It was also nice seeing the different domains - military, kids, school, etc.

I felt the book...more

Even thought it was violent and gory, it didn't feel that way. Probably because it is tame as a young adult book rather than an adult horror story. The author puts a lot of thought into how the powers work and their implication. The gaiaphage idea is...more

A friend who knew I liked the "Old Man's War" series got me an advance reading copy at a book conference. And an autographed copy too which is cool. Unsurprisingly, I enjoyed the book. I read it in three days.

The premise is that millions of people ex...more
