This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The story starts out with a girl who has stolen something. She is obviously poor and so the language may portray a good description of the character. I just was not invested in the story to put up with the language.
Funny Business is based around the theme of - what else - humor, and if you’re familiar with Jon and Guys Read, you already know what you’re in store for: an hilarious story.
I had hoped for a story of young Artemis. This is a telling of where he got the idea for the character Artemis. This story is not worth paying for. Maybe fun to learn but not even a real short story.
Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.
Although many have said it was too short and needs more I feel it was a perfect length. The plot was fun as you watch the dispatcher try and explain to others his profession. Character development was done well for such a short story. I don't see this going any where as a story line but using these characters in a different story or something like it could be a fun premise. This story line tidied up nicely.
For Tess Kendrick, a junior at the elite Hardwicke School in Washington, DC, fixing runs in the family. But Tess has another legacy, too, one that involves power and the making of political dynasties. When Tess is asked to run a classmate's campaign for student council, she agrees. But when the candidates are children of politicians, even a high school election can involve life-shattering secrets. Meanwhile, Tess' guardian has also taken on an impossible case, as a terrorist attack calls into doubt who can - and cannot - be trusted on Capitol Hill.
I was excited to find a mystery story without sex or murder. This is a cute story but the characters were very one sided. Amelia is a very naive PI and Rick is a rather soft "bad boy". But I loved how clean it was. It was a fun story that I would say would be great for 13-14 year olds.

Wuthering Heights is the name of a rustic old house situated above the Yorkshire moors and dominated by its new master, Heathcliff. It is a famous story of love, passion, and the nature of man.
The narrator was ok and the story line entertaining. What I liked the best was the character traits of the main characters. They were never one sided.
