    Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of "Flock" - Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel - are just like ordinary kids - only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true - except that they're still being hunted by new threats at every turn.

    Overall

    Unlike the previous Maximum Ride books, this one has an agenda to preach to your children a religion of global warming. It implies like the future books will have the same focus. Lack of scientific principles throughtout the book with the characters guessing their way to the assumed cause of all thier problems. Not the action packed Max books we'd expected.

    Ninth in the series, Undead and Unfinished finds Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor slogging her way through the Book of the Dead. When Lucifer offers to give up all the book’s secrets, Betsy is intrigued. But there’s a catch, of course. For her part of the bargain, Betsy must take her half-sister, Laura, to Hell, so Laura can develop an appreciation for her dark heritage.

    Overall

    Hated this book. I LOVED the previous Undead books, but this one wasn't worth the time or credit I spent on it! It's as if someone drugged the author and forced her at gunpoint to write another Betsy book without any planning or plot development, with the main goal of letting down her fans. A huge waste of my time. It doesn't flow like the rest of the series, but jumps from one person's viewpoint to another's. The ending is the biggest disapointment I've ever experienced in a book. Betsy is now gross, heartless, vile, and is nothing like the Besty from previous books. Certainly isn't the love story the other books were. I wish I hadn't read it, as it's spoiled the previous Undead stories for me. YUCK.

    In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it.

    I really TRIED to like this book. Yuck. It was slow paced and it spend hours describing basically NOTHING happining!

    The author speaks down to the reader, explaining why his anti-conservative values are the way we all should think.

    It preaches left-wing socialism and anti-capitalist views. In this book, all companies are bad bad bad, and all litiginous lawyers are good good good. It also portrays Christianity as being only a crutch. Yuck. Don't bother with this one. The ending was as droll as the rest of the book.

  • Odd Thomas

    Story
    (1810)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "Well paced, attention holder!"
    Overall

    What I liked most about Odd Thomas is that the book isn't filled with profanity. The author is able to convey emotions and suspense quite well without resorting to irritating "page-filler" 4 letter words. There are twists and turns so that while you may be thinking that you have the bad guy or the ending figured out, the author had other things in mind and surprises you!
