The classic short story "To Build a Fire", by American author Jack London, is brought to life in ways he probably never imagined when it was first published in 1908. The subtle blending of narration and music create a vivid image of the "Man" and his "Wolf Dog" as they set out on foot along the Yukon in temperatures colder than negative 50 degrees F. With plans to meet his friends at a logging camp by 6:00pm, the Man finds himself pitted in a life-or-death struggle with nature.

A great short story, you feel like you're with the character, trying to survive. Jack London does a fantastic job I bring life to the situation.

Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

This is one of my favorite out of all of The Dark Tower series. This book starts intruding you to the rest of the characters and brings together some of the un-tied ideas of the first novel.

I was looking for a great adventure novel and deafly found what I was looking for in this book. Full of mistory, exploration and fantasy this book kept me listening for hours on end till I was done. The writing is intriguing and the narrator does a great job of expressing the emotions of the characters. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end - the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public. But there are rumors that something has survived.

It was a fun adventure, and some great visual description. Michael Chrighton isn't known for making sequels but this one keeps you entertained to the very end and is a great addition to his first.
