I really had fun listening to this book! I was laughing over the antics of the 2 old women. I can't wait to listen to the next one! There is some swearing but it's minimal. About a PG rating if it was a movie. :-)

Vampyres don't exist. They absolutely do not exist. At least I didn't think they did 'til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead? Now I'm a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren't bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite, and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe.

I dont mind a few bad words in a good book with great characters. I dont even notice it. But when four letter words are in every sentence, I cant get through the first chapter.
I was looking for light and fun and found foul..

I liked the first book, even though the story had giant holes in it and it was light on details to make the story work. It was entertaining and I liked the characters. The story was a little silly. A highschool kid, being chased by the law is grabbed and made the leadrer of the world against evil space aliens. Yeah, that could happen. His powers were fun though.

This book continues with the evil aliens killing humans that had surrendered just because they did not like us and planning to annihilate Earth. They like to wipe out planets and kill everybody. It is part of thier culture. So with our fearless leader leading we beat the aliens with fanciful technology we got from other aliens they had killed.
Rather than destroy these evil guys we sit down to talk. Our fearless young hero's wife convinces the evil leader of the aliens that he was wrong and hated humans for no reason. He sees the error of his ways, So the wife Says" the aliens are our friends now so lets give them our technology!"

At this point I would have thrown a physical book across the room, but I really did not want to break my new Iphone.

I like Sci Fi and I have read Bad sci Fi before, but this should be in the childrens fairytale
"If we just talk to the evil people who want to kill us for fun, they will like us and we can all be friends " section. I am sorry I wasted credits on this series. Buyer beware!

But a compelling story. I cant tell you why I kept reading, it was gross and revolting but facinating. Read at your own risk! A Horror story with Giant radioactive bedbugs, Jihadists, prostitutes, and a vile hotel owner with a live website from cameras that show what goes on in the hotel.

Only one likable character. Discusting.

I loved the beginning of this book and wish it had stayed with those characters. The story is sci-fi but that is peripheral because with this story, because it wasn't nessesary for the story to be in space. Two opratives are chasing an assasin,that one of them knows but they never see and they keep missig him and I got bored and quit in the middle of the book. Maybe it gets better. It might. I had better books to read.

Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy. But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.

The narator was ok, the story was ok. I won't bother to get the rest of the series. Too many holes in the narative, and te characters don't resonate with me. I am a big fan of sci fi books with battles. just not this one.
Three stars is my code for not sorry I read it but won't read it again or look for more books by the author.

This classic haunted house book stands the test of time. the characters are engaging and the house is sinister. I have to admit I would love to visit it. The housekeeper is suitablely deadpan and strange. " there is no one to come if you call in the night after dark.''
Visit Hill House and get the shivers again. "Whatever walks there walks alone!"
