I love the book 1 comma as a teacher I always listen to books prior to introducing them in the classroom unfortunately after listening to go to with the profanity it is unable to be used with middle schoolers. the book is pretty good with the exception of the profanity which is so unnecessary

This could have been a fantastic story unfortunately the author decided to throw in homosexuality into the book, not everybody wants to read that type of garbage I have enjoyed this author in the past. If she continues to throw this junk into her writing she will be taking off my reading list. I understand there are some people in this world that that does not offend however there are also some of us in this world that don't want to read or hear that type of garbage. Please keep this out of your books or advertise that this will be in the books so that we don't have to return.

At the tender age of 13, Holly fell in love with Lorrie Beaumont, who inherited the Revolutionary-period estate when his heiress mother died during childbirth. Though more than a decade has passed since Holly last locked eyes with her childhood love, the passion she felt in her young heart has never come close to extinguishing - that is, until charming, ruggedly handsome Nick Taggert unexpectedly waltzes into her life and treats her to an unforgettable weekend of laughter and intense passion.

Would you consider the audio edition of Holly to be better than the print version?

I don't know

What could Jude Deveraux have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I do not like homosexuals in my reading. If writers are going to add this to their books, it should be stated on the jacket. I would not recommend this book. I use to read Ms. Deveraux's books years ago, and if this any indication of her new books, she will be removed from my reading list.

Any additional comments?

I am not pleased with the story. I will be returning this book.

This modern morality tale by gifted writer and speaker Andy Andrews teaches seven fundamental strategies for creating a successful life. Much like the best-selling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Storyteller Andy Andrews gives a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime. David Ponder has lost his job and the will to live.

The Emerald flew across the seas, carrying the pirate Pagan - despised by the ton, whose riches he plundered, and beloved by the poor, whose plight was eased by his gifts. The Marquess of Cainewood vows to hunt down the pirate wretch in revenge for his brother's death. But when Jade, an enchanting vision of rippling red hair and eyes of jewel-green, appears at his door to beg desperately for his protection, the Marquess agrees to keep her safe from the villains who want her dead. Jade is infuriating, exasperating, and gorgeous; Caine is noble, strong-willed, and powerful. No woman has ever befuddled him so, nor so deeply aroused his desire.

The evening begins like many others. Lionel falls asleep while listening to his uncle tell stories. Ryan stays up reading and listening to music. Vicki goes out smoking pot with her friends. And Judd, tired of being told what to do, takes his father’s credit card and heads to the airport in search of freedom. But in one shocking moment, everything changes. All over the world, millions of people suddenly vanish. Driverless cars crash on the highways, and planes fall through the sky without pilots.

Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy - after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans.

Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood - the blood of Olympus - in order to wake.

What disappointed you about The Blood of Olympus?

This is a book for kids and the author wanted to add homosexuality into the book! A series I will now not teach. I realize that some people want to make this acceptable, but it is NOT and that they had to slip it into the book made me angry!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was good

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment.
