Angie Righetti is the daughter of a sprawling but close-knit Italian American family. She's out and they're proud. Jillian Clark's family is the white bread to Angie's olive oil. Stoic and emotionally buttoned up, they don't want to think about Jillian's sexuality. It's 1988 when they move in together, on the brink of starting their careers. Like every couple at the start of their life together, they expect to live happily ever after. And for 23 years life happens.

The story extends for more than 20 years. And so we see the ups and downs of this couple. I felt very anguished for a very significant part of this story, that’s not to say that there wasn’t good moments between then. But we could see the bad choices accumulating. Both made mistakes. But in all a very satisfying book with a fenomenal ending.

An unabridged reading of the new novel by James Goss featuring the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi in the hit BBCTV series Doctor Who. An asteroid in the furthest reaches of space - the most secure prison for the most dangerous of criminals. The governor is responsible for the cruellest murderers, so he’s not impressed by the arrival of the man they’re calling the most dangerous criminal in the quadrant. Or, as he prefers to be known, the Doctor.

It could have been so much better if only the writer had chose other point of view to write from. But in the way it is, some parts got me confused and others are just boring.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town's ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove - or prove - the woman's story.

I like it. But having Kristen Bell narating would make a huge diference. Other than that I am a little disapointed with the developmend on Veronica and Leo relationship. I thought it was past time to move on from LoVe relationship problems, but from the looks of it it is not.

"The Playground" was part of the first hardcover edition of Ray Bradbury's legendary work Fahrenheit 451, published in 1953. In the story, Charles Underhill is a widower who will do anything to protect his young son Jim from the horrors of the playground - a playground which he and the boy pass by daily and the tumult of which, the activity, brings back to Charles the anguish of his own childhood.
