    The exhilerating tale of Takeo continues in book II of the internationally best-selling Tales of the Otori trilogy, a sweeping saga set in a mythical, medieval Japan.

    RacerX says: "Good book. First one was better"
    "Spending more time w/ Takeo and Kaede..."
    Overall

    A wonderful, complex tale continues. Beware if you are driving! very distracting trying to keep all the characters straight. @ 65mph... Knowledge of Japanese helpful. However the narrator Aiko Naksone should be teaching gradeschool - she is sooo slow and overpronounces (is that a word?) everything. She drove me nuts but the story is a good one.

    The Bigtree alligator-wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, their island home and gator-wrestling theme park, formerly number-one in the region, is swiftly being encroached upon by a fearsome and sophisticated competitor called the World of Darkness. Ava’s mother, the park’s indomitable headliner, has just died; her sister, Ossie, has fallen in love with a spooky character known as the Dredgeman, who may or may not be an actual ghost.

    Suzn F says: "Sometimes Brilliant, Sometimes Disappointing"
    "Don't go to Swamplandia"
    Overall

    This could have been fun but got bogged down in the swamp. Wish'd the gators had eaten a few of the characters it would've been shorter...

    The Waverleys have always been a curious family, endowed with peculiar gifts that make them outsiders even in their hometown of Bascom, North Carolina. Even their garden has a reputation, famous for its feisty apple tree that bears prophetic fruit, and its edible flowers, imbued with special powers.

    Generations of Waverleys tended this garden. Their history was in the soil. But so were their futures.

    Together again in the house they grew up in, the Waverley sisters realize they must deal with their common legacy - if they are ever to feel at home in Bascom - or with each other.

    Joihelene says: "I so want to give it 5 stars...!!!!"
    "Got spelled in the garden.."
    Overall

    Fluffy, dopey, predicatable and thoroughly enjoyable. Good choice if you just read/listened to something heavy!
