Richelle Mead is very unpredictable writer in a way that I can't tell if her next book is going to be good or bad. Her stories are always interesting and keep me coming back, but the way she writes sometimes makes me want to scream so loud,it reaches her all the way to Seattle. I started this series with big expectations and got a bit disappointed. I admit, I got so frustrated when I finished previous book that The Indigo Spell was going to decide if I will ever buy her books again. I will. This book was well written , interesting and thankfully angst free. I'm looking forward to the next one.
It's been a while since I've listened to a book as well written and entertaining as this one. I was not even a teen in '80s, but I got most of the references. The book is interesting, smart and it points to the few things that we should pay attention more: overpopulation, pollution and energy crisis. It's all done in a way that it doesn't look like preaching, but an inevitability. Scary, but true. Will Wheaton's narration is perfect, as always. I highly recommend this awesome novel.
I don't know why this happens, but lately every trilogy I read, the last book has been terrible disappointment. This one less than some and still it left me wondering wtf?!
Characters were inconsistent, story wobbly and the ending blah. Oh well, Ill just stay away from trilogies from now on, but if you enjoyed the the first two books and must find out what the hell was the book of life, prepare for a mild, if not stronger disappointment.
Okay, I am a bit subjective when it comes to Ilona Andrews but her books are awesome and this one is the best so far. This was supposed to be the last one in the series, but the authors got contract for few more and voila, we are to expect more goodies from them. However, this didn't derailed them from the story, it just made this book that much better. It's one of the most satisfying ending I read in a while. I honestly can't wait to see what is going to happen next.
This is one example that some writers(most of them really) get better with time. Ms.Duvall is writing clearer, better and her books are coming out of mary-sue-ish kind prose that used to drive me crazy. I kept up with this series not because of the quality of books, but because the story was interesting. Now, I'm glad I did since she is obviously changing her stile slowly but steadily.
Of all of her books I read until now, this one was by far the best. Everything in this book worked for me, especially the war against the evil Archangel. I can't wait for the next one.
I'm writing this review well aware that I'm going to be bombarded with unhelpful votes. However, books, like everything else in life are a subject to personal like or dislike and it would be against my principals to lie and say I liked this book. On the contrary, I was extremely disappointed, since this was the last one in the series. I'm hoping Ms. Frost's new series are going to be worth my credits, otherwise I'm done with her.
This book reminded me a bit of John Scalzi's way of writing; funny, interesting and with great characters. It's a story about a human abducted by aliens who is trying to figure out why was he abducted, together with many other different aliens. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
I don’t like to read self-help books unless they are of educational kind(science, art,etc..) Since this one was free (thank you Audible.com), I thought why not. It was less than two hours in length, after all; I could take it.
It’s a short, interesting read, and in places very funny, about how we shouldn’t let our fears of failure stop us from trying to succeed. It’s a lecture about moral integrity and taking responsibility for our actions that would make us more confident and successful. The point of the book was that we all want something we don’t have, so let’s just be grateful with what we have and learn to enjoy it. Not bad for a self-help book.
A well written military sci-fi.
It’s a story about first human exploration spaceship (kind of like Enterprise from Star Trek) that rescues the only living Alien from a ship full of dead somethings. Alien turns out to be-guess what- a human, and the mystery ensue. I couldn’t put it down. I kept listening when I got home. Highly recommended for fans of military sci-fi.
I really don’t know to which genre I should shelve this one. Maybe post apocalyptic, suspense thriller. Maybe just the-end-of-the-world survival guide. This is one book that put me on the path of becoming one of the crazy doom-preppers. Very interesting read, although I’m not sure I would buy the next in the series. Made me just a tiny bit more paranoid than I would like to feel after a good read. No aliens or zombies, just the regular, human catastrophe.
