Started off ok then gets crazy. It seems like you start over and over.i haven't give up on it and I don't know if I'll try the second book. I find myself just wanting to start the next chapter and see if it will get better. I know if G.R.R.M is involved it will get better.
I first watched this series on HBO then i read the book. This is one time the book is completely different but in a good way. Kevin isn't the mayor in the series and there is no talk of his dad or his mysterious dog killing friend. Holy Wayne in the series is a prophet or angel type leader. Jon who is Kevins son is following Wayne and taking care of his girlfriend. She is carrying the baby of Holy Wayne which Nore Durst finds in the end. Who is this baby? His wife and daughter has a lot of problems. One lives with the cult group The Guilty Remnant and the other could join!! Overall a good story about where a fourth of the world just disappeared. Is it the rapture or aliens ? I guess book two will explain a lot more because there is a whole lot more to tell about this crazy town called Mapleton. Maybe book two can tell us more? The HBO series is better than the book and you don't hear me ever say that much because the book usually is always better!!!
I wished it wouldn't have ended-I could read Follett all day. Follett does a great job putting fictional characters in true events. Book three is awesome! Follett puts all the old characters from the last book with their new families in book three. Out of all three books most of us can relate to the timeline in this book. Living in Alabama and listing to all the bad things that happened in this part of the country really puts chills all over my body. All five families lived through the hard times of a tough century where the growing and breaking up of these countries was tough on all five. These five families crossed each others paths on the way to help build these new countries. Love and war is a big part in all three books just as it is in our lives today. When you read a Ken Follett book he makes you feel like you are a part of the true events he writes about. If you haven't read this series, start today you will love it! MUST READ!!
The first three book were awesome and that's hard to beat. But Robin Hobb has done it again with a great story line to bring Fitz aka "Tom Badgerlock" back to the Six Duchies.
After years of living his life with Molly and their kids, Fitz has forgotten his assassin ways until his life is turned upside down. Fitz trying to raise a new little girl on his own after Molly has passed and the Fool coming back into his life after all these years is a recipe for disaster. Fitz has two new young would be assassins in his life to teach or not to teach-(that is the question). Will his young daughter find out about Fitz Chivalry's assassin life and will she still love him? Two books to go.....
ALL I CAN SAY IS THIS BOOK WAS GREAT!!! TERRY GOODKIND PUT RICHARD THROUGH THE RINGER!!! IT ONLY TOOK 14 BOOKS FOR ONE OF THE BIG THREE TO GET KNOCKED OFF THEN THE BIGGEST GETS TAKEN OUT!!! THATS HUGE IN THIS SERIES BUT FOR SOME REASON I SEE SOMETHING UP TERRY'S SLEEVE. I THINK RICHARD IS DOWN BUT NOT OUT. THE AFTER WORLD IS TOO SMALL TO HOLD HIM BACK. BOOK 15 WILL BE AWESOME. HURRY UP TERRY WE NEED THE BRINGER OF DEATH.....
Everyone knows this series I'm sure. I remember watching it as a 10 yr old and i was hooked. This book takes me back and i love reading about Gus and whats next.Two TX Rangers and friends for life and now old and living out their last years as cattle herders. Gus and Call want to be the first to settle in Montana with the largest cow and horse herds. This is a book that will make you laugh and cry!!! Go along a ride with Augustus 'Gus' McCrae and Woodrow F. Call-two cowboys that only know one way!!! THE TEXAS RANGER WAY...
LT Jason Redman was a Navy Seal who had many great moments and a lot of bad moments.These moments changed his life as a leader,father,husband and person. Bad decision after bad decision Jason was at the point that he was going to drop out of the Navy all the way. The decisions he made after that point got him ready for his life long fight with the injuries he received after one long night in a "dog fight" in the middle east. Later on Jason becomes the founder of Wounded Wear and an author with a lot of life to live. A great book about leadership.
Agent Clarice Starling is on the ropes in this book. She has punches coming from all angles. The one person she can count on is Dr Lector but this time Hannibal is on the run from a long time patient from his past. The book is good but the movie was better this time!!!
This is coming from a guy who was in the Army and my father retired from the Army. Major Gant was a soldiers soldier, the type of gung ho officer everyone wanted. After reading this book I'm ashamed that the top brass let this happen!! Did Major Gant break some Army regs.? YES!! Has most every solider in the Army done the same? YES!!! Jim Gant is a true Spartan. He got the job done and never lost a man down range and that is the stuff the Army can't take away. Major Gant's legend will grow and it should. I think Jim did turn tribal but that is what he was asked to do.Taking Ann Scott in was over the top but the heart wants what the heart wants. Drinking beer on christmas and you loose your rank? I was in Kuwait and alcohol and more was available while I was deployed. Everyone who has served in the military world knows Major Jim Gant was shafted. Its sad but Jim Gant can watch my six anytime!!!! One article 15 can't take away what you did for this country. Thanks for all you have done and your service!!!! Major Jim Gant makes me proud to say I was in the Army!!!! Hooah!!!
Frank Muller does a great job in this book and his voice for Buffalo Bill is creepy!!! If you have seen the movie you will love the book- it's one and the same!! Dr. Lecter and Starling are a duo meant to be together. Hannibal gives the soon to be FBI agent all the clues and it's up to Clarice to stop Buffalo Bill. This is the second book in the series and so far both are great.
I loved the movie!!! and the book was spot on.Will Graham is the Sherlock Holmes of the FBI..I see Anthony Hopkins every time Alan Sklar talks about DR. HANNIBAL LECTER!!! The Tooth Fairy aka "The Red Dragon" has a lot of problems and the book goes into every part of his life from his mom to his beast of a grandma.. Dollarhad wants to do the right thing but the Dragon will not let him go. The one common denominator is Special Agent Graham the one advantage he has on Lecter and Dollarhad is they're both insane!!!!!
