I am a sci fi fan, but not really a horror fan. This one is right up my alley! Well told, unique, and fast paced. I am looking forward to more.

Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.

The writing is very good, the characters are fine but nothing happens for most of the book. It starts of very intresting, but I am about 2hrs from the end and I will finish it because I used a credit on it. The movie wasnt great but it was better than the book.

This is a horrible end to the series. I am a big fan the first book. It is in my top 5 books of all time, the second is still good, but this is not what I wanted. Even thinking it might not be as good I was still let down. Also it has a terrible ending I wish the book just ended 5 chapters earlier.

The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

This is not a story for anyone looking for romance, or deep concepts. It is a little slow to start but very fast paced once it gets going, and is full of action and just pirate stuff. Give it a shot.

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

In this genre-bending novel, among the first to have launched sci fi into literature, a group of remarkable social outcasts band together for survival and discover that their combined powers render them superhuman. Together, they may represent the next step in evolution - or the final chapter in the history of the human race. As they struggle to find whether they are meant to help humanity or destroy it, Sturgeon explores questions of power and morality, individuality and belonging.

I got this because of the good reviews but I really didn't like it. It was very strange and it tried to be deep but just got more confusing and I couldn't care about the characters less. pass this one by.
