    Editorial Review

    Since his first novel was published in 1974, Stephen King has stretched the boundaries of the written word, not only bringing horror to new heights, but trying his hand at nearly every possible genre, including children's books, graphic novels, serial novels, literary fiction, nonfiction, westerns, fantasy, and even e-books (remember The Plant?).

    3-0 out of 5 stars This historian is a good read
    Okay, this is an enjoyable book, but far less enjoyable than any Harry Potter novel. I have yet to read the end, but I am disappointed that Dracula, himself, shows up only in the last 100 or so pages. That's lame.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I suddenly wish I were a Historian... Wonderful*****
    I found The Historian to be a wonderful & easy read from beginning to the end.Very well written.VERY Dracula-esque.If you loved Bram Stoker's original masterpiece, you will love this as well.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely!
    The story begins with our heroine finding a bunch of old letters, all addressed, quite melodramatically, to "My Dear and Unfortunate Successor". Shortly afterwards, her father goes missing and she uses the letters to try and track him down. Her quest takes to monasteries and libraries all over Europe, and she finds herself being hunted down by a sinister figure - the same being that has haunted both her grandfather and father's letters, and who may be the cause of her mother's mysterious death. As she delves deeper, she finds out more about her family history and begins to understand just how truly terrible her adversary is.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Other than Kenyon, awful compilation
    I didn't like one story in this book other than Kenyon's, and even that wasn't her best.The book was actually so bad that I resent the money I paid for it.And to add insult to injury, the other book I bought that was a compilation including Kenyon was even WORSE.Just a total waste of money.Two of the stories are written in the first person -- and come on, are you a 12 year old writing a story for composition class? -- and all of them are hokey and, to be blunt, lame.

    2-0 out of 5 stars severely disappointed
    Severely disappointed is the only way to describe my reaction to this anthology.I ran right out to buy this book because of all the positive reviews.Save your money and buy it used.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some are silver and the others gold, but all GREAT!
    To say that I was looking forward to this book for the authors that I already know and love is an understatement.I couldn't wait to read L.A. Banks' story and Sherilyn Kenyon's.However, I have to say that I not only enjoyed the stories from the authors that I am already familiar with and love, but I enjoyed the stories from the authors who were previously unknown to me as well.What a great introduction to something new!I am definitely going to be broadening my book collection with some new authors and of course will continue on with the ones I love and know already.This was a book filled with interesting, romantic and exciting tales and I would recommend it to anyone.KUDOS to these writers for a capital accomplishment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Original Erotic Horror Novel
    When people mention erotic horror, which is a phrase thrown about continuously nowadays, I immediately think of Ray Garton's "Live Girls". There may have been other books that came before this one to pioneer the new sub-genre of horror but Live Girls was the first I was exposed to. In this regards, I find myself unbelievably lucky.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Unique, gritty, vampy...
    Just now finished reading Live Girls. It's been a while since I've read straight horror and I reentered the genre with Ray Garton. I'm glad I did. The book was well-written with solid, realistic, flawed characters. Some of the things in there I hadn't seen before. I applaud Mr. Garton for breaking new ground - and for giving people new reason to avoid peep shows! Seems kind of obvious in hindsight that vampires would frequent the sex clubs - what a great way to shop for food! I'm glad to hear that there's a sequel and will be sure to read it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I "Hole-Heartedly" Enjoyed Live Girls!
    Ray Garton's Live Girls is everything a good horror novel should be: hip, edgy, fast-paced, and entertaining. But it goes one step further. It's everything a good vampire novel should be, leaving behind the Victorian trappings of Bram Stoker's Dracula and moving swiftly into twentieth-century Times Square. Thankfully there are no whining Anne Rice types brooding about the futility of life while sipping absinthe and applying black nail polish. This novel takes a fresh, original look at undead bloodsuckers and is more From Dusk Til Dawn than Interview with a Vampire. In my book, that's a very good thing.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding paranormal mystery
    Harper Connelly and her step brother Tolliver have been invited by Dr. Clyde Nunley to demonstrate her power for his anthropology class.She can find the dead and determine how they died and their names.He has an old graveyard at Bingham College which hasn't been used for 50 years and recently the records of the old church have been found giving the cause of death for those buried there. The records have been sealed so he is sure that like others he has invited for demonstrations he can show that she is a fake or at least not reliable.Good characters, good plot nicely done and some humor as she spooks the class and Dr. Nunley by being right all the time and by finding Tabahia's body double parked in a grave. (She had been hired to try to find her when she disappeared a year ago from her home in Nashville, Bingham is in Memphis.) And more humor when she weirds out the corner. I still like her southern vampire series better but this is very good and a little better than her first book in the series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Harris never disappoints!
    Harris never disappoints and Grave Surprise is no exception. Harris's prose is both quirky and smooth as butter, and these characters really grabbed hold of me. Made me laugh, made me tear up, made me turn the pages faster and faster, and sigh when I reached the last. It's wonderful to read a writer who knows her craft as well as this. I can hardly wait for her next!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lightening Can Strike Twice
    In this, the second in Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly series, we learn oh so much more about Harper, her paranormal ability to sense the dead and how they passed, Harper's childhood, and most tantalizingly, her relationship with her stepbrother Tolliver. It's an excellent weekend read. Read more

    If you read all the rest of the dark books this is a great book. It has a the books in one adding to them. Very hard to put down.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Carpathians are BACK!!
    I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book.Ms. Feehan is incredible.She bought back every beloved character from the past and made their contribution to the story breathtaking.I even enjoyed Adrienne and Aidan's story.And, their book DArk Gold was the only miss Ms. Feehan ever had.Skylar and Dimitri's story is almost to delicious to wait for but, that Manolito.I cannot wait for Manolito and his heroinnes book.IT will be awesome.This book extended the series and bought me even closer into the Carpathian world.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you Christine!!
    I own all the books in the carpathian series.I have waited months for this book & I was not disappointed!!I have always wondered what went on with the characters after their book was finished. Now I know... I love that this book was a reunion of all the characters.Christine Feehan brought back all of my favorite characters, brought in some humor, but this was still a Carpathian book, still a romance novel, but a little more family oriented.I loved that she explained more about the past of some of the characters, and opens it up for more books to come.I can't wait for the next book!!!! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars I could not sleep for a week after reading this book!
    I don't understand all the bad reviews of "The Ruins?"It kept me turning pages all night.Sure the subject matter is dark and it does not have the pat happy ending, but hey! guess what it is a horror story!As some have mentioned, I was hoping for a story that involved Mysteries at a Mayan Ruin site, but thats not what this story is about.If your are looking for a thriller/mystery wrapped in the mystery of the ancient ruin sites I agree with the reviewer who recommended "Tourist in the Yucatan." cool thriller!

    1-0 out of 5 stars predictable and gross
    I forced myself to read the entire gross mess in the hope there would be something worth while in there. Save yourself the trouble unles you enjoy slasher movies and that ilk.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the beach or lunch time reading
    This is the perfect book to take to work and read either on break or at lunch. The plot is very straight forward and its a very easy read. There is hardly any background on the villian which would have been nice. I am still wondering about the first tunnel sighted when they go down the shaft. The ending was quite good. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Much more than what I was expecting
    "Gates of Fire" is not, singularly, a book about the 300 Spartans who fought at the Battle of Thermopylae.Moreso, it is a look into the individual men who made up this group and the quality of character that makes a Spartan.This is one of the best "historical" novels I have ever read.I have been intrigued with the Battle of Thermopylae for awhile, and bought this book several years ago, but never got past the first few pages because it was a little boring. Thankfully, I struggled through them, because by page five, "Gates of Fire" really takes off and sets the pace for an incredible story.
    5-0 out of 5 stars You won't read a more vivid combat account...
    I've read this book twice, and both times was awestruck at the vivid accounts of Spartan combat thousands of years ago.Further, Pressfield does a remarkable job of capturing the Spartan ethos, the manner in which they lived and ultimately died.An outstanding read for action fans and history buffs alike, this is one you will not be able to put down.

    2-0 out of 5 stars When Men Were Men
    At a time when some want to appease or even capitulate to our enemies, it is refreshing to read of an era when men stood shoulder to shoulder and fought against impossible odds to defend their country. In about 490 BC a force of up to 7000 Greeks anchored by 300 Spartan "hoplites" (heavy infantry) fought a suicidal holding action against at least 200,000Persians under king Xerxes. They did this in order to give the rest of the country time to prepare for its defense. This Alamo-like stand at a place called Thermopylae-literally the "Hot Gates"- is related in fine detail by Steven Pressfield in his novel Gates of Fire.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I expected more from Marvel
    I don't know if it's me, but this book was is not what I expected. The artwork in my opinion was not that great. The stories were somewhat bland and flat. One story is completed made up of splash pages (all art) and with nothing written on it. You figure with Marvels stable of talented artist, they artwork would have been better. The only halfway decent story was the last one in which the media, along with government, manipulates the news in order to give the people war propaganda news in which the human are winning, and not disclosing the casualties nor suffering that are being endured by mankind. If you truly want to read a gripping graphic novel with amazing artwork, check out Pride of Baghdad.Now that's a great graphic novel.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Opinion of a bigtime game/comic fan
    Halo is a great game, and some of these artists have done other work which is awesome.But I have to say that this book didn't do it for me.I'm not a very analytical person when it comes to comics.I read them, and then I just ask myself if I had a good time.I didn't.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dropped call....
    As a huge Stephen King fan I really looked forward to reading this book but was quickly disappointed.There's no real character development.I would like to know who Tom was before the pulse or what Alice was like before the pulse. It started off very strong but towards the middle it started to lag and then eventually stopped.I didn't feel like I was reading a true Stephen King book at all. This felt like a third rate 'The Stand' with cell phones instead of a flu virus. 'The Stand' was a much better read.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Sorry, Wrong Number
    What happens if one day everyone within hearing range of a cell phone were to suddenly go insane?What if that insanity caused those afflicted to attack everyone within sight?Stephen King asks these questions in this book.Unfortunately, our protagonists never find why and King makes me wish that he had picked the protagonists that located the source of the pulse.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Not one of Stephen King's best
    The idea behind this book is a good one, like many of King's book: what if at one point in time, every person in the world who talks on or listens to a cellular phone receives some "signal" or "pulse" that acts like a "reset" button on a computer, erases his or her personality and leaves only primal madness, aggressiveness and eventually a sense of flocking with others of their kind? And what if a few people who were smart or lucky enough not to receive that "pulse" and have been able to figure out that the cell phones are the cause, get together and set off on a journey towards possible sanity?

    Editorial Review

    While the Bible may be the word of God, transcribed by divinely inspired men, it does not provide a full (or even partial) account of the life of Jesus Christ. Lucky for us that Christopher Moore presents a funny, lighthearted satire of the life of Christ--from his childhood days up to his crucifixion--in Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Messiah and miracle worker with a sense of humor
    Moore created a tough challenge for himself as a comic writer by putting a fictional spin on the life of Christ, especially the years between His childhood and ministry that are a wide gap in the Gospels. Yet he succeeds brilliantly in giving the iconic Messiah and miracle worker a human personality with a trait some of His most dour, so-called followers centuries later still lack - a sense of humor. The number of grammatical errors and occasional factual goof (in his epilogue Moore refers to the Book of Revelations, instead of Revelation) are disappointing. Yet, overall, his research is meticulous. For me, the narrative stalled in the middle - where Moore has the Messiah in the Middle East learning Eastern philosophy from the three wise men. Still, "Lamb" is memorable and thoroughly enjoyable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful and fun!
    I couldn't put it down! The scene in the garden, where Joshua first encounters the procrastinating angel, had me laughing so hard.. and then, every time I thought about it. Biff and Joshua are typical boys, growing up and venturing forth in the world. Biff knows his buddy is special and he's always there to cover Josh's back, to encourage and protect, and to discuss those things universal to young men. It's a fun book you'll want to share.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tooo funny for words!
    Are you tired of all the depressing news in the world today? Well, now you can escape for a while by reading Lamb:The Gospel According To Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. I was leary about purchasing this book because of my staunch Catholic upbringing. However, I trusted the Amazon reviewers and once again was rewarded with a fantastic read. Christopher Moore is my kind of nut case. His imagination is incredible and this book was almost impossible to put down. I have already ordered another one of his books and will most likely read every one that he has written. It feels so good to laugh...thanks Christopher! ... Read more

    The other reviewers will tell you about the book.I've read most of Preston and Child's works, including the other two books in this trilogy, and they are a good read.What gets very old and nauseating is the continual saps to modern feminism.I guess it's a necessity to get published today, but you'd think that at least SOME male authors would get tired of grovelling just to get published.I guess most people will sell their souls for money.Just about all the men in P and L's books are either wimps, effiminate, weak, bumbling, stupid (or liars or murderers), cry-babies, scared of their own shadows, and thoroughly unlikable (even Pendergast has his moments).The women, of course, are, without exception, tough, brilliant, shrewd, fearless, always right, on the rise to the top, always outsmarting the men, able to knock out a 7 foot, 300 pound man with a single karate chop to the neck (forgive the slight hyperbole), totally unfeminine, and just as unlikeable as the men.The stories are very good; it's unfortunate Preston and Child couldn't have come up with better, more realisticly human, less insulting characters.This slop may play in New York and California, but in Texas we still want our men to be men and our women to be women.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great trilogy
    Preston and Childs have ended this trilogy with a great high adventure read. Agent Pendergast is a most intriguing central character as are the supporting cast members.The ending leaves one to believe that there could be yet another novel.....????
    5-0 out of 5 stars A fitting conclusion to the trilogy...but is it really the end?
    This book was billed as the capper to the Pendergast series, when all of the plot threads left by "Dance of Death" would be neatly sewed up. Much to my delight, the authors were apparently seduced into keeping things going. Not to give the plot away, but I doubt that we've seen the last of Diogenes, and the last sentence in the book just screams "continuation."

    4-0 out of 5 stars excellent characterizations!
    This is a quick, riveting read for fans of the "woo-woo" factor. The real strength here is the character of Harper Blaine, a woman with new skills she did not seek out but must now learn to manage.Richardson does a fine job in portraying the tension between Harper's new life and her nostalgia for the simpler more clear cut world she inhabited before her injury.Several subsidiary characters are also nicely portrayed - the young college student who has gone missing, a computer "geek" who matter of factly helps Harper even as he perceives the truth of her situation and an attractive antiques dealer who hopes to be a permanent romantic person in Harper's life.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Intriguing New World

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ouch?
    The grey between life and death does feel like an overdone premise lately, but I was hopeful for this new book. I'm still hopeful, and might read the next installment from this author, but I need to get over this one, first.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Halloween Chills
    I love the beautiful illustrations in this book and the rhyming is perfect for phonemic awareness for preschoolers. It is the perfect amount of scary for 4 and 5 year olds. It is a short, spooky, read with gorgeous pictures.

    5-0 out of 5 stars wonderfully scary, but not too much
    I just discovered this book and took it home to my two year old and he loved it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My almost 3 year old memorized in a couple of days!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Something STINKS and it is not the zombies
    WARNING! This book WILL offend a lot of fans.
    5-0 out of 5 stars It's feeding time
    A while ago, Mark Millar spun a tale during his run on Ultimate Fantastic Four in which an alternate reality was introduced in which Marvel's first family were zombified flesh eaters.Well, just imagine if pretty much all of the Marvel universe heroes and villains were the flesh eating undead, only they still had their powers and wits about them.Robert Kirkman, best known for his incredible Walking Dead series, knows a few things about zombies, and the yarn he spins here is one of the guiltiest pleasures you'll ever read.Magneto is seemingly the inly unaffected super-human on the planet, and he's face to face with Captain America, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Giant Man, Luke Cage, Wolverine, Daredevil, Thor, and every other Marvel hero you can name who has been zombified.Soon enough, the Silver Surfer arrives to Earth foretelling of the coming of Galactus who plans to devour the planet.And oh yeah, guess who the Marvel Zombies plan on devouring too.Sometimes predictable, loaded with dark humor, and wonderfully drawn by Sean Philips; Marvel Zombies is a fleshy treat.From Spidey's self loathing ("I can't believe I ate my wife and aunt!") to Giant Man keeping Black Panther alive and sawing off a few parts to eat, Marvel Zombies may not be a Marvel MAX title, but it's definitely not for the squeamish.A big load of fun that's over too quick, Marvel Zombies is a worthy pick up for longtime Marvel readers looking to see the company's icons in a different, slightly decomposed light.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Visually pleasing, short on story line
    Let me preface my review by saying that outside of the Walking Dead series, I have read very little graphic novels/comic books since I was a kid.So if you are a passionate fan of the genre, you may not gain much incite from my review.If you are a fan of the Walking Dead series or zombie works in general, my review is pointed more at you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo, King.
    Nearly a year after reading this epic series, I decided to come on to Amazon to see how it was rated among fellow junkies. I was not at all surprised to see that the reactions to this book, not unlike most books on Amazon, spanned quite broadly across the 5-star spectrum. The biggest difference I noticed between this and other books is that regardless of what the viewpoint of the reviewer was, the description behind it was often lengthy and passionate. Most of the negative reviews are negative because King left the reader feeling betrayed, empty and hurt -- and some people can't deal with that kind of emotional burden. The beauty of his "magnum opus" is that he achieved exactly what he intended to. Out of the near 600 reviews this novel has received, very few of them are one-liner reviews shooting the book down without a second thought. Call me crazy, but I think the cascade of emotional response from his readers speaks for itself with regards to the integrity and brilliance of this series and even this ending.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Dark Tower
    The Dark Tower is the 7th book in the Dark Tower Series by Stephen King. It is about a Man, Roland, and his quest for the Dark Tower. He picks up many companions on the way and has a huge adventure through out the books; I thought this was a great finish to a great series.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Series ever written with the perfect ending.
    Book seven in the series "The Dark Tower" finally brings the much-awaited ending to a story that is impossible to put down.When I began reading this series, I became entrenched in the story, its characters and most importantly how it made me feel about life, and the world we live in.For those people who criticize the ending, I suppose it isn't for everyone, but you have to admit you didn't see it coming, and that my friends is what a true storyteller is able to do.After you finish the story, continue into the author's note to understand what I mean.As for the author, well he is brilliant as usual.The visualization you, as a reader, are able to create in your mind is unbelievable.The different worlds, the landscape, the characters, the language, and of course the story.Stephen Kings put it best when he asked everyone reading the books "I hope you are reading this for the story and not the ending."Anyone can write an ending, but to tell a truly wonderful story is impossible for most.I have recommended this series to many, and I not know of one who has disliked it.To read this sort of story, you have to keep an open mind, let your fantasies run wild and for GAN'S SAKE put down the remote, grab a glass of scotch and immerse yourself into the story.You will not be disappointed, this I promise.The scariest thing about this series, and about the ending, is that you can actually picture it happening, not just to the character but also to yourself.While my review isn't to break down the book, you can do that for yourself.It is more to entice you into reading it, but not for the ending (though incredible), but for the story and the journey.ENJOY! ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars A handful of Ritalin and a pot of coffee couldn't make this readable....
    This is not a book for people who like to read.It's a book for people who like to be pretentious and hip.It's a book for people who feel smart for slogging through something they don't understand.It's the kind of book one person says they liked, and other people follow along and say the same, ashamed that they couldn't finish it because actually finishing it would require a handful of bookmarks, a couple of highlighters, days of sleepless nights, and maybe some sort of illicit chemical assistance.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great fun- it'll make you go mad.
    This book really shows off what an author can do within the medium of a novel.It's a fun read that really pulls you and and affects you.Be sure to get a color version- or at least an edition that has the blue text as intended.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Pretentious, leaden, utterly unfrightening
    I was really excited to buy this book, having been a horror fan as a teenager. I was looking forward to a book that might satisfy my adult interest in forward-looking literature yet still give me an old-fashioned scare. This book did neither. It is basically an example of media hype and unorthodox writing style serving as Emperor's new clothes for lame characterization and a moribund plot. The footnotes and the pointless appendices only served to make this book even more pretentious. I would have given it an extra star for its unorthodox structure if the idea wasn't basically plucked from the air. William Faulkner wanted to put colored text in his books seventy years ago; it was just too expensive to do back then. Just about any serious writing student knows that story. So what if publishing technology made it possible today? It's not a new idea, and neither is the accountrement of footnotes and appendices, see: David Foster Wallace. The Paul Auster-like logical puzzles of the story are also old hat. (Auster does it much, much better.)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait....characters need some improvement.
    I waited impatiently for #5. I was hooked from the first time I saw the cover. The social comentary is valid and some of the characters are well done. The need for firearms in society is positivley reinforced- a brave stand by the authors considering the current cultural war against guns. Certain characters are making decsions that are just plain stupid.This series is fiction, but was meant to examine how people would live long term. They would learn from their mistakes regarding security, and not go galivanting and compromise their group. Any less thought and the series will begin to be a pure horror series, with people being stupid just to keep the body count up. I am waiting for #6.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The road goes ever onward
    This ongoing saga continues and continues to impress.Rick and company have settled in at the prison and although there have been numerous traumas both related to the walking dead and to the interpersonal dynamics, the little community seems to be in fairly good shape nowadays.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait...
    Well, it took forever for Image to release "Walking Dead 5: The Best Defense."Thankfully, it was worth the wait.
