    This stunning debut novel from Australian author Lucy Christopher generated considerable buzz for its nonstop suspense and breathtaking imagery. Sixteen-year-old Gemma is on a layover at Bangkok Airport, headed to Vietnam with her parents. Then the vaguely familiar Ty drugs Gemma’s drink and steals her away. Her head swirling in confusion, Gemma soon finds herself fighting to survive in the unforgiving Outback.

    A very interesting story told in a very interesting way, you won't regret buying this book...

    Narration is good but not perfect, sometimes it lacks the emotion described (like when someone is talking very angrily or excitedly it doesn't show) but at the rest of the time (95%) the story telling is excellent...

    Only wish there was some sort of chapter naming or markings to know when to stop, doesn't have to be chapter numbering (maybe something like "(1). Day 1, (2). Evening, (3) Day 2, (4) The Trip...etc") but that's no big deal...

    You might start to appreciate the book more once you read it all the way through, but the story is gripping enough so it's doubtful you'll start but not finish this great book...

    Long ago the gods chose a great hero to act as their agent in the mortal world and to stand against the demonic spawn of Chaos. The gods gifted their champion, Daemron, with three magical Talismans: a sword, a ring, and a crown. But the awesome power at his command corrupted Daemron, turning him from savior to destroyer. Filled with pride, he dared to challenge the gods themselves. Siding with the Chaos spawn, Daemron waged a titanic battle against the Immortals. In the end, Daemron was defeated, the Talismans were lost, and Chaos was sealed off behind the Legacy - a magical barrier the gods sacrificed themselves to create.

    Please bare with it, this book starts off veeeeery slow and takes a while to pick up the pace, but just give it a chance, it'll be worth it.

    I understand why people who quit in the middle of this book find it so disappointing, the entire first half of it is back-stories and details about characters that have not yet been properly introduced, I didn't pay much attention in the first part and so missed out on a lot of that information.

    The one thing that kept me going was "this is what Karpyshyn left Star Wars and Mass Effect for, it has to be worth it" I was almost 75% into the book and still forcing myself to bare with it just a bit more.

    But then at the end it finally started picking up the pace and I finally started to enjoy it and follow along with all the details, I wouldn't say it's better than Karpyshyn's other sci-fi books but it is still quite enjoyable.

    And despite Karpyshyn's attempt to move far away from his other works to create a brand new saga, this book has the Star Wars feel all over it, it even has friggen' Jedi's in it, well they're not called Jedi's but they still are Jedi's and since Jedi's are awesome, this book is awesome.

    I don't usually read book a second time but I think I will make an exception for this one, not because I liked it so much but because you'll miss out on more than half of it if you only read it once.

    And I am definitely reading the second book as soon as it comes out, I think it will have no problems with pace as all the ground work has been set up in this one and so the second should have no problem being just nonstop action...

    The year is 2033. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct and the half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind, but the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory. Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms.

    I started playing the game before reading this book, and finished them both together, there are almost no spoilers shared between the video game and the book, on the contrary, they compliment each other better than any other book+movie or book+video-game I have seen so far.

    I recommend you do them both together, don't start one after you finish the other, trust me it will make the experiences on both mediums much more amazing than any one would have been on its own..

    I myself play a lot of games but if you don't, I think you might even enjoy it more, you can find the game cheap on online digital stores.

This mystery remains for a decade until Jonah, Katherine and Chip start to question their roots. Then the letters begin: "You are one of the missing"; "Beware! They are coming back to get you."

    (Without giving away any serious spoilers)

    The book started off really great, the mystery of the opening hooks you in and makes you want to delve deeper to find out what the hell it's all about, but when you do, it turns out to be nothing but a boring cliche that you've already seen a dozen times in other books/movies & video games.

    The book ends on a cliffhanger, but the plot is so boring I don't care enough to read the second book.

    In Software Superslug, Software is no ordinary slug. He may be small and slimy but he's got the brain of a genius! He lives under the Potters' house, and is determined to tell them something important - and he finds a brilliant way of doing it! In Software Superslug and the Great Computer Stupor, when Software watches Betsy playing computer games, something peculiar happens: he makes snails move in straight lines! Has his brain been disastrously reprogrammed?

    I should have looked at the category this book was in before getting it.

    In any case though, I thought it would be a bit fun because it would have references for programmers to enjoy, it didn't, it's like the author went to a programmer friend and asked for a list of words related to computers and then just scattered them around here and there in the book.

    You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown in a blender. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? If you want to work at Google, or any of America's best companies, you need to have an answer to this and other puzzling questions. Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google? covers the importance of creative thinking, ways to get a leg up on the competition, what your Facebook page says about you, and much more.

    Ironically I was reading this book when I was already working at Google, I didn't read it to prepare for interviews or anything, I was just interested in the puzzles, and this book didn't disappoint...

    Aside from the puzzles the stories about the IT industry hiring processes were very interesting as well...

    So if you wanna read this book because you're trying to get hired somewhere, I can't say how much it will help, but if you're reading it for fun and brain teasers, I highly recommend it...

    Dunno why I bought this book, maybe to find out about the loose ends left from the first one, instead all I get is 11 hours of teenage drama, if you're into that stuff go ahead and read I'm not stopping you but if you're a sci-fi fan looking for a good sci-fi read you should probably go look elsewhere.

    I'm surprised no one reviewed this yet, I've had this book on my wishlist for a few months (dunno how it got there in the first place) and 2 weeks ago I decided why not and I'm glad I did...

    I bought this book after I just finished "Insurgent", the second book of "Divergent", and I must say I liked Fever Crumb alot more than both those books and even Hunger Games, what I like most about it is the no cheesy love scenes and emotional complications that spam half of the book, I grew very fond of Fever and can't wait to read more of her in the second book "A Web of Air" and the yet to be released third.

    If you liked young adult books like Maze Runner and Hunger Games, you'll likely enjoy this book too, Reeve has done an awesome job in both writing and narrating this book.
