I have read most of James Rollins books, and so I decided to give this older book a try … and I wasn’t disappointed. This was a gripping story which makes us wonder about the things that man has yet to explore and how it would affect each of us. James Rollins’ imagination is limitless no matter his subject. Not his best book, but by far an entertaining and thought-provoking read.
I really didn’t enjoy this book. I tried to get into it, and I normally enjoy this genre, but this book fell short in every area. The plot was weak, the story just didn’t seem to be well written and the characters fell flat in my estimation. I know a lot of others liked the book, but it just wasn’t for me.
I didn’t feel like Mirage was one of Clive Cussler’s best books. I thought it fell short of his normal outstanding quality; however, it was still an ok read. It had a good plot, but almost everything in the book happened to Juan Cabrillo. Don’t get me wrong, Juan is great, but this was just a little too much going here and there throughout the read. Sure hope his books get better instead of like this one since I normally enjoy them so much.
One of the best books I have ever read and that’s saying a lot! I loved the story of Louie Zamperini and the many things he faced in his life. He was a MAN who was able to face life’s adversities and managed to come out on top. The reader feels Louie Zamperini’s lows such as when he is held prisoner during the war and causes us to cheer his highs, his Olympic days. This is one of those books where you will laugh, cry and when the book is over hate that it’s come to an end. Laura Hillenbrand is a top author who knows how to catch the attention of a variety of readers … from young to old … and enable each of us to love and want more of her books!
Cute Story. I thought this book was a good, quick read. It had a good, but predictable plot, but was one of those reads that left the reader smiling … most of the time. I didn’t care for the ending which was a little dark for me, but overall I enjoyed the book.
Unlike many readers, I liked this last book in the series. I liked the role that Eve played in this book a little more than in Book 2. I thought that Eve did what needed to be done. In addition, it was nice to see that Charles was one of the good. The ending was a bit abrupt, but the best thing, the expected thing, did happen. Good series.
Written as the second book in the Eve trilogy, the book was entertaining and a good read. However, in this book, the main character, Eve, acts like a princess yet still is in a state of rebellion. After all she had been through; Eve should have been tougher and more solid. Although I thought this book was a little weaker than the first book, but it is still entertaining enough that I will read the third book.
This was one of those books that I just wasn’t sure was going to be that good, but I changed my mind once I began reading the book. The author does an excellent job of pulling the reader into the story and making us want to read more and more and more until the book is done. It is a unique twist to the dystopian future of the world and what those left have to live through. The character was very weak in the beginning and I didn’t want to like her. But the way Anna Carey develops her character, you find yourself beginning to understand and pull for her. This may have been a book for the younger audience, but as an older reader I definitely found it an excellent read and have even recommended it to others. I enjoyed it so much that I have purchased the second and third book in the trilogy. That is always the mark of a good read!
After reading many of the reviews, I couldn’t wait to start the book. And the first few hundred pages of this book were absolutely fantastic, a delight to read. However, the last several hundred were pain and agony to get through. The part of the book that talked about the museum explosion and the subsequent time period when Theo lived with the Barbours was really interesting and well written. However, the story lost its luster about the time that Theo went to Las Vegas. I did not enjoy the alcohol and drug induced stupor that he and Boris participated in from then until the end of the book. There were some parts during the last portion of the book that were interesting, but overall I felt that the author really let us down. Because of this, I don’t feel like I can even give 3 stars.
Interesting read. Although this book is for the YA audience, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my first time to read this author, Tracy Deebs, and the book made me want to read more. Is this fantasy, absolutely; but could it happen … possibly … and that’s what is intriguing about the book. To think about one day all of a sudden not having anything electronic and the power grid and every other kind of grid going down boggles the mind. What would the world be? I would hate to see that. Yet this author entertains us with this story-line. Entertaining? Yes. Quick Read? Yes. For all audiences? Definitely.
This book was one of the best books I have read this year. It is one of those rare books that you don’t want to end, and when it did I was let down … it needed to continue and continue and continue. The book takes two characters and weaves their lives together. Molly is young girl from a foster home who is having trouble adjusting to her life. She ends up doing some work for Vivian, who was an orphan in the early 1900’s. In working for Vivian, Molly and Vivian become friends and Vivian tells Molly the story of her life. Both characters weave themselves around your heart for different reasons and the reader finds themselves pulling for both characters and wanting life to turn out right for them. Of all the books this year, this is one that I would say is a MUST READ! Outstanding work.
