People that like irrational love stories and very slow almost non exeistant plots.
At least half them, there was so must stuff in here that seemed completely random and pointless.
First off I am going to say that I am not a Christian, but I found this book to be very good. The characters where written in a very provoking and interesting way, while I didn't agree with everything they believed, it only served to make these characters more realistic to me.
I must say I found the last story to be sad but it made me want to ensure our government and all other governments stop their crazy production of nuclear weapons. They can blow the planet up several times over, yet our government still produces them.
This book was OK. It was far from the worst book I've ever read, but it felt like an introduction to the authors world with a pointless plot thrown in, just so we would have a reason to explore it. And the world was actually pretty cool. It's just the story that was not that interesting.
How this book makes it on the list of Best Military Sci-Fi books is beyond me. Either military Sci-Fi is really bad or the people that are picking books for that are....
Unfortunately, I know that there are really good books in this genre, so that means that later must be true.
The only book this list belongs on is the most forgettable, idiotically unrealistic Sci-Fi books ever written.
A beautifully tragic story ruined by massive page count bloat. I listened to the audio version of this, which weighted in at a staggering 26 hours.
Now this is actually a good story, and the author can write some good prose, but the story just keeps going on and on, in a very whiny manner.
At first you really care about the main character, then you start to get annoyed at her whining, then you want to slap her and tell her to move on with her life, then you cease to care at all. Now if this book where about 10 hours long, it would have been about the perfect length and a truly good book.
This is one of the better D&D based books I've read. It's pretty much a classic Vampire story, with it's Gothic tragic style. It barrows heavily from the vampire movies that came out in the 1990's. So for me it had a lot of nostalgia value as well.
I don't know if the modern kids would like it though, since the Vampires don't sparkle.
A very interesting classes Sci-Fi/Fantasy short story collection all set in an alternate history. I'm not going to go into the plot as others have already done this.
The stories are all loosely connected in one way or another. And I found some to be a lot better than the others, I personally thought the last story was the best of the lot. They are all well written, it's just that one tends to enjoy some stories over others.
A recommended read for all fans of Sci-Fi.
This was a fairly entertaining mystery book that focuses on some rough stuff at times, like the torture of prisoners to get confessions, even though the Hangman knows the person to be innocent.
It was a fun read but nowhere near a s good as the first. And anyone that plans on reading this novel needs to read the first book as this story takes up where the last left off. This book ends in a cliff hanger, so I hope the next one is as good as the first.
This was a great start to this series, and the second book is great too. But the 3rd was very disappointing, and I'm planning on reading the 4th soon, which I hear is better.
Recommended if you enjoy space opera. It's not Dune or Hyperion, but still a fun read.
This book sounds like it will be great, and builds up quite some anticipation just because of the subject matter. However it left me very disappointed and completely unfulfilled.
