It is amazing this writer is able to put words together that make a story. With punctuation and characters and unintelligible mumbles...

Every one is entitled to an opinion. I am not a fan of this book.
I hope if you purchase it you enjoy it more, I don’t believe anyone would possibly enjoy this DS any less

With the versatile voice talent of William Gaminara, acclaimed novelist Kim Newman explores the darkest depths of a reinvented Victorian London. It is 1888, and Queen Victoria has remarried, taking as her new consort the Wallachian Prince infamously known as Count Dracula. Peppered with familiar characters from Victorian history and fiction, the novel tells the story of vampire Geneviève Dieudonné and British spy Charles Beauregard as they strive to solve the mystery of the Ripper murders.

Still bruised and heartbroken from their last calamitous quest, Gorm Ingerson and his band of washed-up heroes try to make amends for the orcs they accidentally betrayed. But justice is put on hold when an old foe marches to the city gates. Gorm is horrified to discover a liche pitching the frightened city-dwellers on the merits of the undead lifestyle...at the head of a corpse army. To save the city from high-pressure sales tactics and an inevitable siege, the dwarf warrior and his misfit band hatch a harebrained scheme that lands them at the top of the king’s kill list.

His thorough knowledge of the game's world and his unique ability to immerse himself entirely are his only advantages.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.

Is there a shopping cart where you were about to park and so now, you have to get out of your car to move it or look for another spot? Is your neighbor driving you nuts again? Did your leisurely drive end up aggravating you because it seems no one knows how to drive? Can't get out of the elevator because everyone is rushing in? The reality is the world has changed. We are more self-absorbed than ever, and technology has caused us to pay less attention to our surroundings, if not each other.
