    In a desolate orphanage in what remains of post-Communist Romania, a desperately ill infant is given the wrong blood transfusion - and flourishes when he's supposed to die. The discovery of his unique immune system may hold the key to the long-awaited cure for cancer and AIDS - and a link to a clan of vampires.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Children of the Night?

    Half Romance, half adventure, mostly stupid.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Simmons again?

    If this is an example of Dan Simmon's work, probably not.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine.


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

    I was very disappointed by this book. Worse than a Sci-Fi channel story.

  • The Essential 55: An Award-Winning Educator's Rules for Discovering the Successful Student in Every Child

    If there were a code you could learn that would lead you to become a great teacher wouldn't you want to learn it? The Essential 55 is a collection of the amazingly effective rules that Ron Clark used to become an extraordinary teacher. Through trial and error, this teacher has distilled fifty-five ideas that have helped him take apathetic students in some of the country's most challenging areas and transform them into award-winning scholars.

    Genevieve says: "Southern charm with no substance"
    "Mr. Manners"
    Overall

    While I enjoyed listening to Ron Clark, I was disappointed that this was not a book about education but a book on manners. For instance, Mr. Clark spent several minutes discussing how to use you napkin in a restaurant and which foods are finger foods. Perhaps in his next book, Mr. Clark will discuss his ideas about education.
