    5-0 out of 5 stars Great ending!!!!!!!!!
    This book was absouluely wonderful and a great ending!!!!!!!! What else can I say??? I loved it! READ IT

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Fitting End!
    As I read this, I could tell this was an entirely different chapter in the Baudelaire's lives than we'd previously been exposed to. Lemony Snicket made it rather clear that the questions we wanted answered wouldn't be answered and it would do no good to answer them. Though slightly disappointing, I think we're better off for it. This book drives the message of the entire series home, and is in so many ways an allegory to what we experience every day. I thought this book was more emotional and better written than all of the other books combined, and was pleased with the couple of things we DID find out, even though there are a million other questions left unanswered. To answer these questions would be to ruin this series and the entire point of these books, and though we thirst for answers, the truth is that answers to these questions would be disappointing and more mysterious than what we're left with.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect ending to this series

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Review of Artemis Fowl The Lost Colony
    I think Artemis Fowl The Lost Colony is a great book.As with all Artemis Fowl book's it was suspenseful, "filled to brim with action", and always kept reader guessing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best One Yet
    This is the best one in the seris yet! Mr. Colfer has struck again with another enhancing novel under the Artemis Fowl seris.

    4-0 out of 5 stars ...
    I steamrolled through the first four books in the Artemis Fowl series this past spring and found them genuinely delightful. Unlike some other reviewers I think that this book is best when read in the context of the series, and not as a standalone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A young lad on a fearless journey in search of his mother
    Maurice Sendak's "Mommy?" is an interesting pop-up book which deals with a young lad dressed in blue and red attire who encounters some strange creatures in search of his mother. Among the creatures that this lad encounters as he enters a haunted house, we have a wolf-man, a Frankenstein's monster, a Bride of Frankenstein, a mummy, and a goblin. Each of these individuals are addressed the following question, "Mommy?" Some of the monsters try to scare and impale the lad, but not only is the lad not scared, he pulls some rather amusing jokes, mostly consisting of the disfiguring of their protective coverings.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
    I've been a Sendak junkie since I was a kid. His books have always been among my vary favorites, and I'm happy to say they're among my kids' favorites as well. I also love pop-ups, so I was really escited to learn about this book. And I must say, my expectations have been surpassed.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!Amazingly intricate Pop-up Book.
    My kids and I love pop-up books, and I love paper engineering and building castles and palaces out of paper.When I read this book, I was amazed at how intricate the pop-ups were.Whereas most pop-up books may have 5 or so different pieces of paper on each page, this book has what looks to be 3 to 5 times that number of different small pieces of paper that all interconnect and make an amazing picture.I can't believe they were able to produce this book for the retail price!Surely it can't be by machine?Anyways, your kids will love it, although younger ones will need help closing the pages so that the pieces don't get mangled.I might buy 2 - one for the kids to read and probably destroy, and 1 for my collection.Highly recommended if you love pop-up books! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to the next one...
    There are some very interesting tidbits in this volume that clearly affect how I look at parts of the series and how the final book will turn out.This book made me look forward to the next one in the series.In the meantime I got two books in a new series - Why Some Cats are Rascals.Great reading!.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Collector's item or valuable clues?
    If there's anyone on your gift list unlucky enough to own the entire series of unfortunate events, you may wish to inflict further adversity upon them by purchasing this additional volume for their collection.Not so much a book as a mystery contained between hard covers, this most attractively presented publication contains two folders, one with a large two-sided poster filled with clues, and a notebook containing correspondence exchanged between a guy named Lemony Snicket and what seems to be two people named Beatrice Baudelaire, one of whom claims to be a fourth Baudelaire sibling.The letters begin before The Bad Beginning and end sometime after The End.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Uh huh, Foggy Bottom used to refer to the State Dept.
    Can this book be used as evidence in a court of law? IMO thats where this book is headed. The lawsuits are about to fly, the schism is expanding and soon there will be a lot of wealthy writers and entertainment stars weeping.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for discussion!
    Although I had a bit of trouble getting into the first 3rd of this remarkable novel, my persistence was rewarded with an incredible book, which leaves so much open to interpretation and discussion.The story of a boy who is shipwrecked, and forced to live on a lifeboat with a tiger for months, it is also the story of our world, our lives and our families.One can't help but wonder about the nature of truth and meaning of our coexistence.In short, it's an impressively rich and meaningful literary journey.Well worth your time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars SPIRITUALLY INSPIRING AND AN INTRIGUING JOURNEY
    The Life of Pi is actually a book in two parts. The first half is based primarily on Piscine (Pi) Patel's exploration of three very different religions - Hinduism, Islam and Christianity, as well as his family's ownership of a zoo. The second half of the book is the story of Pi's journey by barge to Canada. The boat sinks leaving Pi, a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra and Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, adrift at sea in a life boat.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Life of Pi Book Review
    The Life of PI was a very interesting book about a very religious boy named Pi. By very religious I mean he took up Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity. Just for the record Pi lives in India where these are common religions. In india Pi lives with his mother, father and brother.

    This book is a timeless classic.Every parent should read it to their small children.It is a great way to end the day with a sweet good night.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A classic
    I must admit that the only reason I bought this book was because people said it is a classic and any web site about children's books named this one. I did not relate to it, because when I was growing up in India, this wasnt popular. When the book arrived and I actually looked at it, I did not understand what the hype was all about and did not really read it to my son until a couple of weeks ago. (I bought the book about a year ago when he was just 4 months :) )

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ooops! She did it again
    J.K Rowling has pulled off another stellar Harry Potter. Because the amount of time it takes to complete a 7-part series, I thought she'd run out of steam, but clearly she has not. After seeing what happened with King towards the end of the Dark Towers series, I was afraid another renowned writer might do the same. I was pleasantly disappointed. There is nothing else to say. Great book. She keeps the series rolling perfectly. Some of the goings on (people who've read the story should know what I'm talking about) I believe are front for other plans, and I was not heart broken at the end.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Harry's Daring Quest
    Harry Potter and Professor Dumbledore try to research Lord Voldemort's childhood. They search through the pensieve discovering the truth about Lord Voldemort. They realize the rutheless, evil wizard splits his soul into seven pieces by murdering seven innocent people. Then he magicallyhid them into valuable objects, which Harry and Dumbledore set after for. I loved the book because the story line was thrilling and intriguing. The characters were daring, intelligent, humorous, and wise. My favorite character is Harry Potter who is a sixteen year old wizard who's parents died because Voldemort murdered them both. Harry is my favorite character because he is brave and humorous. Some related books to this one are all five of the other Harry Potter books. I think this book ranks number one in comparison to them all.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This book series stinks! And that's flattering.
    One star is giving this terrible and uninteresting series a huge compliment. Especially this book, where the plot consists of little but pointless stories of the character's love lives until the end, when there is a quick bit that is actually about Good vs evil. If Harry can be called good. beyond this words cannot describe my disgust for this book and for the whole series. Hope Harry dies. Painfully. ... Read more

    For this return to Neverland
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fits the original like a hand in a glove.
    Geraldine McCaughrean's "Peter Pan in Scarlet" is different from all other additions to the Peter Pan mythos in that it reads like an extention of the original story instead of a fanfiction.There is a comforting feel to reading this book, like the feeling of coming home.It was definately a treat to read after having read the original novel.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fly Peter, Fly!!!!Wonderful!
    Geraldine McCaughrean has created a fantastic sequal for all of us who believe in NeverLand!In this wonderful follow-up to Peter Pan, we are taken back to Neverland, where there is great adventure waiting Peter and his crew of familiar and unfamiliar cast.However, Neverland is a bit darker and more dangerous than what Peter first experienced, and the challanges he faces is much more than what he expects!From one adventure to another, readers of all sorts will completely cherish this wonderful book that picks up in rythem and beat from the initial story about the young boy who never wanted to grow up.I can simply say that the world at large has waited for THIS book written by THIS author.Ms. McCaughrean has done an amazing job in creating a sequeal that is as much a continuation as it is a new adventure.Peter Pan in Scarlet is a must read for every person who reads.Take flight and let your imagination soar . . . and fly with Peter Pan! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Im a bird
    Im a bird.Eldest was a really good book, but the 1st book, Eragon, was much better.Eldest had a lot less action, and it took too much time talking about Eragons studies, and less about anything else about the Varden or Dwarves.The side story about Roran, Eragons cousin, was more exciting.As it got further towards the end, it was much more interesting and had more action, and was easier to read.the end of the book made me want to read the 3rd book because it left many things unanswered, like who the third dragon egg will hatch for.It was an overall great book, but not enough action in it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Yawn, Yawn, Yawn.....
    Well, I picked up Eragon because I heard it was pretty good. I was in the need of an original book, so I figured I would give it a try. It turned out ok. I was impressed with the age of the author, but was also dissapointed on how much of his ideas were not original. Still, there was something fun about a jedi dragon rider.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Creative and inspiring
    I was partly prejudiced when I first picked up Eragon, having read about the authors age of only 15 when he wrote the book. I expected something much more amature than what I read.I was amazed how he spun such a wonderful tale, so wonderfully descriptive, exciting, and created an endearing main character that had many flaws, and LOTS of room to grow.Paolini has a lot of natural talent and has only begun to explore his potential.I hope he will continue writing long after this trilogy is over.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Dear God or Stephenie Meyer, please, please, please, let the third book be better than the second.
    Ok, I adore Edward, and I love the way the Stephenie Meyer wrote the first book, but Bella is so slow on the upstake in New Moon. I know that both plots are predictable, but Ms. Meyer writes in such a way that that's usually ok because it answers the reader's prayers(like, "please let him struggle with his love for her some more," etc.) but in the second book, Bella's slowness takes away from that connection to her readers. And I honestly spent most of the book missing Edward. When he finally came back, the lack of drama and closure was rather anticlimactic - I just thought that Edward was more complex than that. Oh well, I hope the third is better.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed.
    I can honestly say Twilight was the most splendid book I have ever read. I loved everything about it, especially the intense love between Edward and Bella. I fell in love with this book so much that I couldn't stop talking about it with my friends for a while. I was looking forward to New Moon, and I ended up finishing the book in a day. I was extremely disappointed with a lot of things that happened in the novel.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My all time FAVORITE book!!
    I have to say, Stephenie Meyer has created the most unique, fantastic and romantic world I have ever read about. I read Twilight and New Moon within three days, because when you read these books, you want to know what will happen next. Bella and Edward are adorable together, and the plot line is wonderful. The only complaint I have is the amount of time it takes for the next book to be released. This is the best book ever, even if Edward is only in it a little. For those romantic fans out there, the time he spends in this book is some of the best chapters! I HIGHLY reccomend this series! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A prett decent Pratchett effort
    Terry Pratchett has been a bit hit amd miss for me of late, but I do always enjoy the Tiffany adventures. This is definitely one of his best efforts of recent times. It's better than A Hat Full Of Sky (which I did like) but not as enjoyable as some of his darker efforts. This is an easy read full of Pratchett's trademark wit. I preferred Thud in terms of story and tone, but for an easy read Wintersmith can't be faulted. It's not too heavy going and will probably go down as the wittiest fantasy read of 2006 along with The Book With No Name. There's nothing particularly straying away from the tried and tested formula, but if you know what you like about Pratchett, then you should already know if you're gonna like this.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Crivens! Another one!
    I love the Tiffanny Aching Adventures, so I was really glad when my brother gave me Wintersmith for my birthday. Now would probably be a good time to tell you that I am writing this on my father's account. My name is Charlotte Moore and I think that Terry Pratchett is a genius.

    It's hard to understand how he does it, but with each book he writes Terry Pratchett out does himself. Each book is even better than the last. And this is certainly the best book of the Tiffany Aching series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Curtis hits a homerun
    I had the opportunity to read this delightful little book while waiting for my wife and step son.It is nice in its simplicity.The book is written for children, very young children, struggling with things that only young children think of.Because of that it was worth reading.If you are expecting it to be more than helpful for children that might be a stretch but it is defiinitely something to read to a child and then discuss.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Spectacular!
    This book is all about those crazy questions that only a child can come up with...but that are plaintive and need a response...in this book we see the wild imaginings of a child and all of his fears and dreams of what it means to be in the human race!What can I say but WOW...there is a lot going on in this book and the question is silly, yet serious...just the kind of question a kid would ask and the message itself (as written by Curtis) is priceless! I'm constantly trying to encourage without making things into a competition...stressing that just trying one's hardest/best is what counts, that life is really more about the journey not the destination.The illustrations and the rhyming poems are of the same quality as the other books I've read by Curtis and Cornell...and I think that's part of what makes this book work so well...the illustrations are a chaotic symphony...so much to see, so many little details for young minds to love and the play between what the words mean literally and what they mean figuratively is absolutely perfect for pulling in both children and adults!This is really a wonderful book for all ages and as with others by this author, its best as a read aloud...the larger the group the more interesting the story telling discussion afterwards...and believe me, there will be plenty!!Simply a spectacular way to introduce some complex ideas to younger readers!I'll definitely be adding this to my permanent collection! A+!! ... Read more

    I thought this book was great - it was really colorful. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Ten Commandments". I recommend it to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Memories
    I enjoyed the book The Giver By: Lois Lowry. The Giver is about a boy named Jonas who lives in a community that everything is the same. Jonas is selected to be the new reciever of memories, which is an extremely important job. The receiver of memories holds all of the memories of the past so the community doesn't have to bear them. As Jonas takes on these memories the excitement begins. I enjoyed the characters in the Giver because they were different and interesting. I loved the plot because it was exciting and suspenceful. The Giver is one of a triolgy of books. The second is called Gathering Blue and the last is The Messenger, they are all relitivily related.

    Lois Lowry's eye opening novel, The Giver, really does make you think, ''Is the grass greener on the other side?''
    5-0 out of 5 stars VHS Class Giver Review- Benton Wilson
    The Giver, by Lois Lowry, is an excellent work of literature. It presents a stunning example of a futuristic, dystopian society where all facets of life are controlled by various rules and regulations in an easily readable format. Jonas, the novel's protagonist, is chosen by the council to become the successor to the Giver, a man whose job is to mentally store the collective memories of society. The book focuses on situations such as a society without individuality, the importance of choice, and how people react to finding out that the accepted truths of their world were at one point not the case. Ms. Lowry uses chilling imagery, such as the lack of color, the inability of most people to love, and the unemotional "release" of those who don't fit into the government's carefully laid out plans for a perfect society to establish a mood that, while somewhat bleak, is not entirely without hope. The story picks up as it progresses, shifting to a more tense, but still equally atmospheric, form. This tension is skillfully maintained until the story's conclusion. I would heartily recommend this story to all those who enjoy fictional works that focus on either individualism vs. society or potential visions of the future.

    this book falls under my favorites!In the beginning of he book the demonic Opal Koboi reluctantley plans her revenge to kill Captain Holly Short and Artemis Fowl.While Opal Koboi is plotting in her fake coma, she secretley breaks out and is finally ready to kill Holly and Artemis.This book was absolutely phenominal!!the plot stuck right on a trail but ended completely unpredictable.the character were very believeable except for most of the mystical creatures, but you could feel their emotions.this book in my opinion ranks right up nest to Harry Potter, Eoin Colfer did an excellent job!!

    Holly, a soldier in the lepRecon has messed up many times.Last time she got captured trying to replenish her magic by the wicked Fowl family.This time when she replenishes her energy and strength Artemis visited her for help (not very likely).There is a new enemy among the community and he might even have out smarted Artemis himself.

    Suspenseful, and exciting from beginning to end, Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception is one of Eoin Colfer's best books.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
    What an amazing, thorough, comphrensive guide to everything Star Wars.NOTHING is left out.You get not only in depth profiles of every major character, but every OTHER character in the universe.It's so detailed that they break down each PART of each weapon, ship, etc.For someone like myself who isn't the biggest Star Wars geek (but wanting to learn more), this is a godsend.There are many, many, hardcore fans out there that can reference almost anything and anyone to do with Star Wars.Well, now you can too, and you don't have to see the films 3245 times to do it.
