The Best of Robert Silverberg (1976)
4.02 of 5 Votes: 3
"What a cruel and dark place the world is, for all its beauty, all its wonder! We have miracles around us on every side-a spider web is a miracle! But we also have violence, insanity, terrible disease, sudden death. The same Nature that brings us the mountains and the rivers and the green glisten...

Jean Plaidy’s historical novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Eleanor the Queen, includes important events in the lives of the title character, Henry II, and King Louis VII of France.

My Dear Duchess (Regency Royal, #6) (1987)
3.57 of 5 Votes: 1
So many misunderstandings and the hero seemed determined to believe the worst of the heroine if he could. When he claimed to be in love at the end it was far too little too late. Contrasted with the hero in Miss Fiona's Fancy--excellent book, the hero in this book just came across as a jerk. Admi...

Love & Sleep (1994)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 2
Inevitably a disappointment, coming after The Solitudes, which gives the quartet such a strong start. But I suspect Love and Sleep is more satisfying the second time around, when the reader has a better idea of its strengths as well as its (many) weaknesses. The main problem is the way its parts ...

Lucia Jerez (2005)

Bir şair roman yazınca, herhalde o romanın şiirsel olması kaçınılmazdır. (Kaldı ki, şiirsellik sadece şairlerin mülkü de değildir.) Talihsiz Dostluk'u bu gerçeğin ışığında, büyük beklentilerle değil ama yoğun metaforik üslubundan haz duymaya çalışarak okumak gerekiyor. Benzetmeler metne bir nakış...
Love & Death: The Murder of Kurt Cobain (2005)
4.05 of 5 Votes: 4
I loved Kurt Cobain. I can remember exactly where I was the moment I heard he had died. God, it made me so sad. And to think that someone who appeared to have it all would kill himself. Well, guess what??? He didn't!! That's right, looks like someone else (can we say bitch of a whore/wife ab...
The Throwback (1997)
3.88 of 5 Votes: 1
Cathartic is what I'd call this book. Who of us has not raged at inordinate amounts of tax ripped from our hands, or how it is legal for some to evade it but how most of must obey, or the blinding, soul-crushing meaningless of it all??? In The Throwback, we have a modern day hero in Lockhart Flaw...

A movie production company heads off to Bear Island, a remote island in the Arctic off the north coast of Norway. Mystery, suspense, murder and mayhem ensue, almost as soon as the boat has left Britain. No one on board the ship to Bear Island is quite what he or she seems to be...and things only ...
