    Born into an alternative frontier America where life is hard, and folk magic is real, Alvin is gifted with power, but he must learn to use his gift wisely. Dark forces are arrayed against Alvin, and only a young girl with second sight can protect him.

    "How did this spawn an entire series?"
    Overall

    I really like Orson Scott Card books. REALLY lilke them. But this one just never seemed to go anywhere. Most of the characters are not likable and you don't really care what happens to them. I will probably read the next one for the same reason I picked up this one.....to see what the hype is about. I certainly didn't find my answer in this book.

  • Super Sad True Love Story: A Novel

    Gary Shteyngart, author of The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, creates a compelling reality in this tale about an illiterate America in the not-too-distant future. Lenny Abramov may just be penning the world’s last diary. Which is good, because while falling in love with a rather unpleasant woman and witnessing the fall of a great empire, Lenny has a lot to write about.

    Ryan says: "Dystopia Now"
    "Neither Sad nor Super"

    I can't beleive I finished it. Hours of my life I will never get back.

    Trouble seems to find Stephanie Plum no matter where she goes, and once again she's struggling with her tangled love life, her chaotic family, and her God-given gift for destroying every car she drives. This time, Stephanie has decided to quit her job as a bounty hunter. She wants something safe. She wants something normal. She's tired of creeps, weirdos, and stalkers. But just when she thinks she's out, they pull her back in!

    Maxine says: "Great story! Read like you're watching a movie!"
    "Fun Fun Fun"
    Overall

    I'm a fan of the series, but not a fan of every title! This one however has the fun, humor, and sex appeal I've missed in the last 2 books. Definately worth it.

    "Excellent Trilogy"
    Overall

    I enjoyed all 3 books and this one did not disappoint me. I expect that we will hear more about this story in his next book.

    Felix says: "Great book... but only for believers.."
    "Fundamentalist Dibble!"
    Overall

    You need to beleive that God is spiteful, judgemental, resentful, and angry to buy this theory! This guy is like most fundamentalists, in touch with Jesus and everything he said and did but has no relationship with or concept of God. Why would God have a character that would in his own theory, condemn us earthlings to hell?

  • The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty: The First of the Classic Erotic Trilogy of Sleeping Beauty

    Story
    (306)

    In the traditional folktale of Sleeping Beauty, the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire.

    Denise says: "Dark Erotica"
    "Vulgar, perverse, weird"
    Overall

    If you're into that, buy it. Otherwise, don't waste your money or time. I couldn't finish it.

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    Stephanie says: "Best Book in a while"
    "Loved this book! Definately worth a listen."
    Overall

    This is not my usual type of book, and I only read it because a friend pushed me to read it. I am so grateful he did. It was wonderful. A classic in the making.

  • The Memory of Running

    Story
    (1036)

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "Likable book about a not so likable character"
    Overall

    I kept hoping the book was going somewhere, and while it was an interesting journey, it was an anti-climatic book. I couldn't even like a single character no matter how much I tried.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"

    A little Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings stirred together. Everyone of all ages will love this book!

    Henry Townsend, a black farmer, bootmaker, and former slave, has a fondness for Paradise Lost and an unusual mentor, William Robbins, perhaps the most powerful white man in antebellum Virginia's Manchester County. Under Robbins's tutelage, Henry becomes proprietor of his own plantation, as well as of his own slaves. When he dies, his widow Caldonia succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart.

    Rachel says: "wonderful and highly recommended"
    "Ugh! No point!"
    Overall

    Has some redeeming historical value, but no plot, no point. It flys back and forth through time and its difficult to follow. Main characters are killed off but you dont really care. I did finish the book but really would not recommend it to anyone. I guess I kept hoping the story would go somewhere it never went.
