    The first of its kind, this omnibus collection covers Nikki Giovanni's complete work of poetry from three decades, 1968-1998. The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni contains Giovanni's first seven volumes of poetry: Black Feeling Black Talk, Black Judgement, Re: Creation, My House, The Women and the Men, Cotton Candy on a Rainy Day, and Those Who Ride the Night Winds.

    "Interesting interview, not enough poetry"
    Overall

    I've been a big Nikki Giovanni fan since I was in high school. While I find her remarkably interesting, insightful, and down to earth, I was really hoping that there would be more of her poetry included in the interview. The one piece that Brian Lamb read, he butchered, and the one piece she read, she didn't read all of.

    Six children have escaped government experiments, and a frightening brush with death. Living out in the world for the first time, they yearn to be reunited with Kit and Frannie, the couple who saved their lives, and to return to the cabin known as the Lake House. But before they can get there, they will face a horrifying evil, for one man has survived the laboratory that bred the flying children, and he is obsessed with reclaiming them for a new round of experiments - with an even more deadly outcome.

    "Silly, yeah, but lots of fun"
    Overall

    The characters lack believability, the dialog can be pretty silly in spots, and the plot is far fetched. If you are willing to let all that go, though, this book is fun. The narration was good and the story had enough hooks to make me want to know what the big mystery was. In the end, I really wanted to see the bad guy die and the good guys win.

    Honestly, not a book I could look back at and say it was great, but I did enjoy it for what it was--entertaiment on an otherwise monotonous day.
