    The Godfather is an extraordinary novel which has become a modern-day classic. Puzo pulls us inside the violent society of the Mafia and its gang wars. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power.

    A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

    What would have made Dead of Night better?

    Needs to go back to the drawing board


    What could Jonathan Maberry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Just not very fresh, I guess the Origin of the sickness was cool, it never set itself above the rest

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    The book is a huge build up to a somewhat quick ending,it probably could have been a series like the dark tower

    The Call of Cthulhu", written in 1926, is probably Lovecraft's best-known work. Discovering notes left by a deceased relative, the narrator pieces together the whole truth and disturbing significance of the Cthulhu cult. This release also contains the shorter tales "The Festival" and "The Hound", in which gravediggers bring home more than they bargained for!

    Would you be willing to try another book from H. P. Lovecraft? Why or why not?

    I don't think so, he seems to be a popular horror/sify author but I found the work dry


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Slow and easy to drift away from the story, had to relisten 3 times and still didn't care for it

    Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The pace, the next book in the series was much easier to understand, with gripping characters this one didn't make a whole lot of since to me


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    I've experienced most of kings works


    Do you think The Gunslinger needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The gunslinger should have been longer and moved a little slower with time spent on each experience I found it moved to fast and was disorienting .


    Any additional comments?

    Get through this book, I've been told it doesn't make since to anyone and is disorienting even on the second time through. It builds the foundation for the series and so this book can't be skipped or ignored.the next book will make you so glad you chose the series

I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Name of the Wind to be better than the print version?

    Reader uses voices which helps me with character identification


    What other book might you compare The Name of the Wind to and why?

    Little bit of Harry Potter, little bit of interview with a vampire


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His on the spot experience with teaching the simpithy class


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the side stories and lore are a bit slow but are needed to understand the culture of the people, I think they made me put the book down the most, once you get through them it picks back up

    In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off - with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all. In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise.
