Cute story line, but I get the feeling that she wants to have some quirky/different characters but she doesn't pull it off,
It was an okay story, but I wouldn't buy it again if I were given the choice.
My headline pretty much says it. Liam is a old timey type of reporter with many colorful characters in his life. The story is fun because of the people in it. The plot is not totally inspired, but again, the characters make it great .
This book was very much a page turner at times, but overall fell a little flat. I would still try another Lovecraft, as a matter of fact I have. This just wasn't my favorite.
To put it simply, I'm not really crazy about the main character. She comes off very naïve, a little bit simple and blames herself for things clearly not her fault. If it was done once or twice, okay but it was through out the book
The storyline describes the making of a super hero. While this much is true, the way the father goes about it is nothing less than abusive and creepy. I do not like any of the characters. Everyone one of them come off as stupid.
I do not like the way they talk about women being a mindless object owned by man only good for giving birth.
Some reviews claim that this book is funny. Wow, a bunch of abusive idiots are funny? Not in my world.
Al, the 100 year old man switches between telling his life's story and in the present day a whole new adventure is being played out. He and all of his friends along the way develop into such an interesting down to earth people. It was so funny through out that I didn't want it to end. Worth every penny,
Loved the concept, liked the story. The story draws you in and you really can't quit till the end. My Only complaint is that it was a little to long and there was way to much of the same
situation happening over and over. Got on my nerves a couple of times.
That being said, I did like the story
Wow what a new take on Cinderella. If you love science fiction with a true evil Queen this is for you. The Cindrella in this book is totally the most creative take on Cinderella you'll ever come across. Great concept, great story.
My only problem with this book is the ending. There isn't one. I know it's part of a series, but I like at least a clean ending point. The ending literally left you in the middle of the action.
I still would reccomend this as a great read.
There not one story in this collection I could acctually sit back and say wow that was good.
There was not one story in this collection I could even say pretty good. Not one.
I don't know excactly how to describe it. Some where just stupid. Some were boring. Some were both. Do yourself a favor and svae your credits.
I've listened to all of the Dresden files series. There is not one that I wouldn't read again and again. The characters are engaging. Dresden is witty and fun, even when he is getting the beaten to a pulp.The relationships are precious and consantly evolving. The story's are action packed, fun and very creative. Read them all!!! you won't be disappointed.
