When Micajah Fenton discovers a crater in his front yard with a broken time glider in the bottom and a naked, virtual woman on his lawn, he delays his plans to kill himself. While helping repair the marooned time traveler's glider, Cager realizes it can return him to his past to correct a mistake that had haunted him his entire life. As payment for his help, the virtual creature living in the circuitry of the marooned glider, sends Cager back in time as his 10-year-old self.

Reviewed: 06-05-18

Pro:
Interesting
Well built and researched
Leaves you pondering many physical and philosophical concepts

Cons:
Slow at times
First half is mainly a tragedy mixed with science fiction
Lacks action or exiting moments

Comments
The performer makes many voices, thatvis good, but some voices are difficult to understand
They talk more about what love is than actually expressing it
Predictable at times

Final opinion
Interesting, definitely not my favorite book, i specially don't like when books try to teach you their values or how they see them, as I have my own, and in a good story with values it is not completely necessary to teach them to you, maybe just apply them in the story.
All in all is a nice book with a good ending

I began to suspect something was wrong with the gothic building when its family fled in the middle of the night, the children screaming, the mother crying. They never came back to pack up their furniture. A new occupant, Anna, has just moved in. I paid her a visit to warn her about the building. I didn't expect us to become friends, but we did. And now that Marwick House is waking up, she's asked me to stay with her. I never intended to become involved with the building or its vengeful, dead inhabitant. But now I have to save Anna.

Reviewed: 05-18-18

When I started this book, I was hoping for a "woman in black" kind of story, scary , deaths, lots of back story, a restless ghost, a speechless ending and frightening feeling at the end. It's far from that.

This book is a little scary, fast phased, entertaining, with some little love, but it is too short lacks back story and it could be a little more scary.

About the performance, she is a little robitic and emotionless at times.

This kind of books are written in order to be long, but they actually lack content.
They repeat the index twice every chapter, along with other tricks to make this book longer.
And the worst was that most of the information is not specifically for the Gmat, but for "any kind of exam with that kind of exercises", its like they put together different pre-made chapters of the exercises for every book they make.
I bought it in order to listen to it on my way to work, I ended up very disappointed.

Don't waste your money, don't buy it.

My name is Theo, and I'm a resident of Oasis, the last habitable area on Earth. It's meant to be a paradise, a place where we are all content. Vulgarity, violence, insanity, and other ills are but a distant memory, and even death no longer plagues us.

this book id definitely entertaining I'll give it that, and it will keep you interested and reading due to its intensive action. but it lacks complexity, depth, it falls on being predictable and redundant at the final parts.

let me explain you why is this book in my opinion "awesome"

-it exploits time travel in a brilliant, intelligent and interesting way.
-it explains everything (theories, bases, places, situations, feelings) in a perfectly understandable way, as well as subtle.
-it makes a mix of adventure / science fiction / love / scary / fast phased story
-it makes it impossible to stop reading / listening to the story
-it makes every situation and every achievement real or possible to happen
-it hides a few in between the lines jokes that will definitely make you laugh
-it creates realistic and complex places, well detailed and easily imaginable
-characters are well built
-even dough this is the second book, its perfectly understandable and enjoyable without reading the first book
-most of the futuristic inventions that appear in this book are actually projects being developed nowadays
-the principal characters are mostly in their twentysomthigs but this definitely doesn't mean it can be enjoyed by a younger older audience.
-it will leave you wanting for more
-it concludes the story completely, but beautifully connects with the next book


3rd book is coming out in a few months or it has already out, depending on when you read this, so you won't have to wait long to know what happens next

hope this helps, and hope you buy this book, we need more authors as great as Nathan Van Coops

In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world - before the wrong person finds the answer first. Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. And Sophie has a secret - she’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone.

I know there are several more books but I felt like this was missing a greater adventure, conflict or battle at the end of the book, all in all I really liked the book, and its pretty similar to Harry Potter, even in the stubborn and nonbelievers of the leaders,but I believe this story has been better planned ahead than Harry Potter was.

Frankenstein is infused with some elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement and is also considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction. Includes introduction and commentary by Mary Shelley. Required reading for any fan of science fiction and horror genres. A classic.

it is amazing how many stories and versions, different writers have created from this one. it was a great experience to finally know the original story.

the reader is an old man, who speaks so quietly at times that without earphones and a good volume, it becomes imposible to understand him.

Prince of Thorns is the first volume in a powerful new epic fantasy trilogy, original, absorbing and challenging. Before the thorns taught me their sharp lessons and bled weakness from me I had but one brother, and I loved him well. But those days are gone and what is left of them lies in my mother's tomb. Now I have many brothers, quick with knife and sword, and as evil as you please. We ride this broken empire and loot its corpse.

the beginning was amazing, well written, detailed, emotional, etc... after the first chapters I ended up unable to stop reading but it becomes slow and repetitive along the way, it puts too much value to the relationship between the protagonist and his dad, it also presents the protagonist as a continously crying, selfpitying person who can't get a grip on things, at the same time the book forgets to solve essential problems the protagonist faces. Before the end, you doubt the intentions of everyone, but after you finish the book, with a strong plot twister as more truths are reveled, you end up feeling sorry and understanding for everyone, loosing with this any real villans or enemies.
