In “Children of the Mind” and now again in “Pretty Boy” OSC has a way of turning villains into real, almost likeable people.
I have despised Bonzo Madrid since I was 12. He was mean to Ender...Ender, whom I love! What’s not to hate about the guy? It is interesting to have my mind changed all these years later.
This was such a fun listen! It was creative and fast paced. The characters where interesting and I wish I could continue to follow them. This book left me wanting more.
I had a really hard time deciding how many stars to give "Gone Girl" I was stunned into silence, not once but twice by this book.
While "Magic Study" was no where near as good as "Poison Study" I did enjoy the character development and some of the relationships of this book.
I felt like the plot circled back on itself too often. Oh, look Yelena got kidnapped...again. There she goes again, running full tilt into an impossible problem without the help or knowledge of the people who love and care about her. And WOW, Yelena found YET ANOTHER creeper that is raping her or one of her friends. sigh...By the end of this one, I was pretty tired.
I am not really a big "Yelena" fan. But my, oh my how I love Valek! I'm going to have to finish the trilogy just to get another hit.
I got this one for free on a BOGO sale and didn't really expect much from it. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the plot and liked the main character.
The most terrible, cheese, awesome story I have read in a while. It's so so so bad. I loved it!
Having only read the first installment I can't be sure, but I think Scalzi is going for an epic Space Opera. I suspect it will end up more of a Space Matinee.
I'm going to give this one 3 stars, because I don't really know how I feel about it. What I really want to say is WTF?
There is so much going on in this book...not all of it realistic.
To tell the truth, I was in love with the story until the very end. The last twist to the story left me felling sad and a little weirded out.
The narrator, Noah Galvin, was pretty great. He made the story much more enjoyable.
Deviants, who enjoy inappropriate sex scenes.
The longer I listened the more I hated this book.
Incredibly beautiful language!
When Nannie says "Put me down easy, Janie, I'm a cracked plate.”
The opening scene, when Janie walks thru town and past all the gossipers.
Beautiful language and amazing performance!
I liked the idea of having Hawk law inforcment.
There where lots of professions, races and names that where really hard to tell apart. And most of the characters had so many non verbal mood traits it was hard to tell how anyone felt.
I wish things had been more clear and that so many names hadn't sounded the same.
Flying with...gosh, what was his name? Clint???
It's too bad this book was so confusing. I would have liked to follow Kaylin thru her training. The book was just too unclear to be any fun.
