Zero History (2010)
3.9 of 5 Votes: 1
Really satisfied with this book - a very thorough conclusion to the trilogy.Again it was a fast paced and enjoyable story telling. It neatly tied off the story of key players of the first books, including a sympathetic conclusion for Cayce Pollard.However Gibson's weak points as a writer were exp...
Darth Vader and Son (2012)
4.11 of 5 Votes: 4
I'm pleasantly surprised, even with my own war against Star Wars and in finding my own Jedi-esque spiritual path, at how much I love this book. It's a kids book in graphic novel form that delves into what might've been if Darth Vader, Luke's father and evil master of the universe, became someone ...

1984 o 2010?Un mondo dove si �� costantemente ascoltati e spiati. Dove la violenza �� la normalit��.Dove la lingua si impoverisce cos�� che le differenze possano essere indefinite. Dove la gente comune ha come unico interesse la lotteria. Dove il passato non esiste. Dove la libert�� �� schiavit��...

sorry this wont be much of a review for nonreaders and more of a critique if you will.anyway the second installment was a very enjoyable read. I greatly enjoyed the backstories reveals and the emence crusing. I mist admit I giggled at all the f^bombs. My only qualm though was there wasn't nearly...
The Compound (2008)
4.03 of 5 Votes: 6
This book by S.A Bodeen was an overall good book. Some components that would appeal to most readers, would be all the suspense and excitement. But the slow start, and obnoxious protagonist keep this book from receiving all five stars. This book focuses on a wealthy family that was sent into a com...
Diferente (2012)

The genre of my book is fantasy because I'm that this isn't real. ********Spoiler Alert***** in the end the boy Benson escapes with his kind of girlfriend named Becky and it ends when he turns and sees the girl that supposedly died. I liked the book a lot because of all the things Benson has to g...
Kalibanov rat (2012)

And we're back! Strap yourself down and get prepared to weigh something heavy because this book takes you in exciting high-g burn. Though with not as many explosions as Leviathan Wakes, Caliban's War is exciting and your favorite protomolecule is once again the center of attention. Instead of two...
Batman, Vol. 1: The Court of Owls (2012)
4.28 of 5 Votes: 1
3.5/4Man, am I sick of owls...I kind of expected more from this. I mean, you only hear wonders from everyone, you expect something great. It was just ok. Batman is not really my cup of tea, he is always so dark and intense and everything is so dramatic that I think he could do with a bit of humor...
The Dog Stars (2012)
3.88 of 5 Votes: 4
This book started out choppy and I thought his terse style would bother me:--> I've started reading. The Dog Stars. Stylistic. Right?However, it evened out after several pages, and there was a reason for the unique narrative - the main character Hig was living in a dystopian future, having surviv...
Wool Omnibus (2012)
4.26 of 5 Votes: 5
Hesitated between 4 and 3, ended up with 4 mostly because I believe that the new author with obvious talent needs to be encouraged. Negatives first: the most stupidest name ever, flood of unnecessary details, some dragged out sequences, why no elevators?, some events entirely predictable. Positiv...
The Death Cure (2011)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 4
I don't know where to begin so I guess I will start at the ending: everybody dies! This book, and every book in the series finished with varying degrees of irresolution. The plot is fast paced and kept pulling me on to the next chapter and the next book, however, I was constantly frustrated with ...
The Maze Runner (2009)
4.22 of 5 Votes: 5
This book is the perfect example of why I usually don't read YA fiction. Not only is it written for teenagers, it feels like it was written by a teenager. So many of the author's choices don't make sense. For instance, he wastes whole chapters on Thomas' disbelief that the walls of the maze mo...
