Something quite odd is happening in Second World - the planet's foremost MMORPG. Something that's causing alliances to be broken, and friendships, forgotten. A worthless low-level mine becomes the stage of vicious battles, its burned ruins suddenly contested by the game's toughest clans. Every border is controlled, and every road in the province blocked off. The weak players and NPCs alike are subjected to non-stop violent raids courtesy of Eastern invaders. And the strong are scouring the virtual world for the culprit - the weirdest noob the game has ever seen.

I can't handle it. Noob is not that entertaining of a word. To hear it a dozen times from the moment he entered the game was enough to make me question why I like this genre.

From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

Nothing too advanced for anyone that is interested in nutrition, I just wish there was more on the benefits of fats instead of insisting on fat reduction.

Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter, and we tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. While excess consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, fancier technology, and cluttered homes, it never brings happiness. Rather, it results in a desire for more. It redirects our greatest passions to things that can never fulfill, and it distracts us from the very lives we wish we were living. But it doesn't have to be this way.

The strategy makes sense. Mr. Ramsey is very motivating and makes you feel dumb for not starting earlier. My only issue is there isn't enough help with the little things. Knuckle down, tighten your belt isn't enough for me to know where to start. Mentioning selling big items I can't afford isn't enough for me. I need more detail in where to cut back and where I am screwing up. I highly recommend this book, I just need to find another with more down to earth strategies for what to do to have the funds to pay for my mistakes.

Daniel Mahan, the legendary Shaman of the Barliona game world, has served his sentence in virtual reality. Eleven months of adventures and battles in exchange for eight years in prison isn't a bad trade-off. And yet Barliona refuses to relinquish its grip on the Shaman so easily, erasing the boundary between his two realities. It turns out that it's not so simple to leave the capsule - the Way must be completed....

Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

There was a strong opening, but became very slow to start. After all the small pieces started to fit together and the story started to pick up speed, I didn't want the story to end even with how long it is, I'm glad that part 2 is ready for me.
