Cass Cass said: " This book is badly written, but it is like a train-wreck, I can't look away.

My response to chapter 1:
I was a gamer when I was in my mid-20s. My husband and I would spend every spare moment gaming. One day in the middle of an 8-hour raid one of the ot

Cass Cass said: " I was in the "I don't like Winnie-the-pooh" camp until I picked up an abridged version of this book, I was surprised at how different the characters and the storyline were to the Disney version.

Then I found this book in a second-hand bookstore for $4

I really liked this. I think it shows potential, and this author might be one to keep an eye on. I read this book as park of a set of 16 books (I think I paid $3.50 on Amazon for the ebook bundle). It is only marginally longer than a novella, don't b ...more

Venomous by Penelope Fletcher
"Got to about 30% then skipped to the end. Lost interest in this when I realised it was menage and there were three male interests for the silly heroine. Much has been made of this being like Last Hour Of Gann. It's not. It is best labeled as Futur..." Read more of this review »
The Complete Atopia Chronicles by Matthew Mather
"A character driven sci-fi story, with too many characters lacking any redeeming qualities. The first person narrative jumps between characters, making the story feel disjointed throughout. Too many lead characters that drives the story into too ma..." Read more of this review »

“Walking out in the middle of a funeral would be, of course, bad form. So attempting to walk out on one's own was beyond the pale.”
Steve Hockensmith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

Ben H. Winters
“Lady Middleton piqued herself upon the elegance and extravagance of her table, and all her domestic arrangements; she loved to surprise English visitors with displays of hospitality native to her homeland, such as flavouring her soups with monkey urine and not telling anyone she had done so until the bowl had been drained.”
Ben H. Winters, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

Sarah Ockler
“Would 'sorry' have made any difference? Does it ever? It's just a word. One word against a thousand actions.”
Sarah Ockler, Bittersweet

Joshua Slocum
“I had already found that it was not good to be alone, and so made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with the universe and sometimes with my own insignificant self; but my books were always my friends, let fail all else.”
Joshua Slocum, Sailing Alone around the World
