    When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

    paige says: "Missing part of the story. NOT unabridged"
    "ABRIDGED version of this book"
    Overall

    This is an ABRIDGED version of this book and not UNABRIDGED as advertised.

    Very disappointing.

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Any additional comments?

    Why are you asking me these stupid questions?

    Ocean is a great book. May be my favorite Gaiman book to date. His narration pulls you into the story.

    Highly recommend.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    DCinMI says: "Review of First 5 Books"
    "Not Tolkien - Anti Lord of the Rings"
    Overall

    I downloaded Game of Thrones because I had read the comparisons to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. There are some similarities -- both are set in fictional lands with a rich history, both have dragons, both have good guys and bad guys.

    There the similarities end. Game of Thrones is about the rich and powerful and politics. The bad guys cheat to win and the little guys get trampled. No hobbits saving the world, no long lost heir to the throne rising to the challenge and uniting the kingdom.

    Maybe that changes in the later books, but I don't care enough to find out.
