Difficult to believe that this was a NYT bestseller. The story is weak and not saved by the "surprise" ending. Lots of gratuitous descriptions of violence. (Spoiler: does a good writer really have to split a guy in half with an elevator and describe the wreckage???) Silly, predictable story begging for a movie and a sequel, neither of which I'll be looking for any time soon. Fortunately there are well written sci-fi thrillers out there.
Barbara Kingsolver's book about her family's year of eating locally is fun, inspiring and written in a manner that informs without feeling preachy. While many of us may not be in a position to raise our own poultry or grow the majority of our own vegetables, this book is full of ideas that allow us to shop and eat more attentively. Thank you, Ms. Kingsolver!
This is the first time I've found myself wishing for negative numbers on the rating chart.
Nothing more than a bodice-ripper with demons and vampires. I haven't decided if I even want to waste the time required to finish this book; I can promise there will be no sequel for me. Where is Sookie Stackhouse when you need her?
