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.

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book
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

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

Reviews (353)

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

2-0 out of 5 stars Great reads ruined by horrible characters
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."

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.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow--great read for all!
Rachel Caine fans are in for another rockin' ride in this new series!
3-0 out of 5 stars A good book for the right age group but a disappointment for us "grown ups"
I love Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series and was keen to read this, the first in a new series subtitled "The Morganville Vampires". However, this book is VERY different from the Weather Warden series - our heroine is a 16 year old girl going off to College. As an English woman the American college system seems very bizarre at the best of times but Claire's experiences in her first six weeks at her new college in Morganville are even stranger. She's a bit of a brainy nerd and pretty soon falls foul of Monica, the 'cool but dim' girl who, with her acolytes, virtually runs the college. They gang up against Claire and, in order to escape various attempts to harm her, some successful, Claire moves out and starts living in an old house with two young men, Shane and Michael, and a goth girl, Eve. Once there she begins to find out some very strange things about the town of Morganville, its residents and the rules that she needs to know to be protected from the evil things out there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Stationary bike - A decent King tale in Audio CD format
Stationary Bike is a Stephen King story that is reminiscent perhaps of his days writing under the name Richard Bachman.With this audio book format, we have a story that is strong in character development and imaginative themes.Its only downfall perhaps is that it is to short of a story and leaves an ending that finds closure with the main character but at the same time, a somewhat uninteresting outcome.
4-0 out of 5 stars Stationary Bike - OK
I read everything and anything King, he is my favorite author. This short story is interesting but predictible.

4-0 out of 5 stars Stationary Bike MOVES
The story is really very good, and very older Stephen Kingish.It scared me to pieces!!

1-0 out of 5 stars What happened Laurell K?
I was a fan of the Anita series from the beginning.The last couple books were dissapointing, but I went ahead and bought this one in the hopes things would have improved.They have not.The nearly non-existent plot takes a back seat to the gratuitous sex scenes.The characters have stopped developing along with any interesting story lines.I'm sad to say that I'm now giving up on this series.This will be the last Anita book I read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful AND Hot
I'm always on the edge of my seat waiting for the next Laurell K. Hamilton, and always on edge of my seat as I read. The beautiful prose, the characters who become so real that you genuinely care what happens to them - and think about them long after you've closed the book - make reading her a one of a kind experience. And then there's the sex scenes! They're so evocative, so original in the way they're imagined and described that Ms. Hamilton absolutely stands alone. She is an Original and a treasure, and I know I'll be grateful for every new book that comes out.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stop, please.Just stop.
Ms. Hamilton, please just stop writing Anita Blake novels.The Anita we all knew and loved is gone.Let the Anita of your first books rest in peace and start something new.Please. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesnt age like wine
The book is well written but never delivers the punch it tries to build. It borders on 'who cares?' as it drags and drags on. The new generation of readers will not get the stuggle of a man living in a futuristic 70's though wriiten in the 50's. Its supposed to take place in the seventies which it clearly is not.
1-0 out of 5 stars Snoooooooze
I thought "I am Legend" was a real snooze - pretty boring actually. I also thought it wasn't very well thought out. Matheson poses some questions throughout the story but never answers them. So you never really know how the plague starts or why. You never fully understand how it spread and how the main character ends up where he is. Then you never understand why the woman het meets is the way she is. Then the ending is sort of like "oh well, it's about time to wrap this up - I know, let's just kill off the main character, that'll do." I was very disappointed. I tried the next story and found it to be even more disappointing and so I stopped reading the book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Maybe just a little too much hyperbole
This is actually the original novel (170 pages) and some additional short stories written over the next thirty five years (the last in 1989).

4-0 out of 5 stars I found myself having a good giggle now and then
I avoided the book for quite sometime, not really sure why, it was a hot topic of conversation at uni and it's sealed cover was a good gimmick -at the time.As a rule I'm not into gore however since the novel was a critique of corporate America in the eighties I thought it might be worth an attempt, only problem however you cant cover your eyes and ask if the nasty bits are over yet.After you've been desensitized, the violence becomes comic and I found myself having a good giggle every now and then, I should also add there were times when i couldn't.Ellis has great wit and eventually you get to really like the protagonist; at arms length. Patric is wonderfully vein and obsessive about the unimportant, i loved his little music review asides, he does one of a Whitney CD, ironic that she is the embodiment of the downs side of the 80's.I wouldn't judge the book by the movie it really is a much better read.I've read other works by ellis this is the best out of the lot i've read. I don't know if it is a generational thing however he is def. 1 of the best writers of my imagination, i mean my generation.

4-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the book, 3 for my reaction
When my book club picked this book, I was worried. I didn't live in America during the 1980s, so I don't really know what it was like. The pages and pages of brand-conscious description at first confused me, but then I understood that Ellis was creating a dizzying world of superficiality and bizarre values. His psychopath camoflauges himself in the shallow world of 1980s NYC astonishingly easily.
5-0 out of 5 stars American Classic
This book captures, albeit graphically, the desperation to fit in, to conform in America. All the characters focus on where and with whom they are eating dinner, what everyone else is wearing, and how much their apartment is worth. People's names and faces are interchangeable.

2-0 out of 5 stars If Koontz couldn't tell a good story...
I would have left this book in the airline seat back on my way to the exit.
3-0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better
Unlike the other reviewers, I enjoyed the first book more. Deucalion, the most interesting character, is not utilized enough in this book and there are more storylines than necessary. Deucalion and Victor Helios (Frankenstein); Randal Six and Arnie; Erica Five and Victor; the two detectives. Less would have been better.
4-0 out of 5 stars An Easy Read
Dean Koontz's Frankenstein books, each of which are co-authored by other writers, are entertaining, quick reads. While I am looking forward to the next installment, and am interested in what happens to the characters, I can't help wondering if they would be "better" if Mr Koontz wrote them alone. The normal Koontz-ian character development doesn't seem as thorough, and the build-up of suspense is not as acute. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the field.
I'm reviewing this as an afterthought. Of its genre "The Stand" is, without question the best. And the story is, in my opinion, the greatest Stephen King has done. I've read the other reviews and I won't go into specifics, however, if you enjoy reading end of it all types of stories you will love this book. Another reviewer complained about it being lengthy. Well, you don't have to read it to realize that. But the story and characters are original and well developed. The plot progresses smoothly to an exciting climax with lots of incredible things happening throughout. And I've read it three times.

2-0 out of 5 stars Much too long and much too boring....
Stephen King is a master of suspense, but for whatever reason he decided to leave his trademark out of this apocalyptic 'masterpiece.'
4-0 out of 5 stars steven king at his best
well i got screamed at by my mom for reading this book.she found out it was longer than the bible and got really fired up saying i shouldve read the bible.anyhow,the plot is simple.a doomsday plague is released killing near everyone.everyone left either gave visions from this old chick or a weirdo.its like the ultimate showdown between evil and good.............well thats what you are led to belive in 1800 plus pages of agonizingly meticulous details.then the end comes and it really sucks.i personaly think he had a deadline to meet or something and cut the book short.its hard to put down but its got its faults. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars christopher moore, my pulsing heart is all yours ...
After reading A Dirty Job, I decided to begin at the beginning with Practical Demonkeeping. I am now addicted ... in love with the drug that is Christopher Moore. I began reading PD at the laudromat and was transfixed. I half wanted to stay there to finish the book (having great difficulty putting it away for the 10 minute drive home) ... but I decided my obsessive need of very clean linens was satisfied (if I had stayed longer I may have washed them again). Anyway, the drive home was tough ... without reading ... put it was fun to imagine Catch as the hood ornament on my Dae Woo with my clean linens in tow.
3-0 out of 5 stars Light & Fluffy? Sure. Laugh Out Loud Funny? Not So Much.
I've been eyeballing Christopher Moore's work here on Amazon for months. I absolutely adore snarky, black humor. Love it, in fact. I was so excited when I was walking through a book store and saw this book at the end of the aisle, that I snagged it immediately.
4-0 out of 5 stars Absurdist Escapism
I've got to say, I'm hard to please when it comes to humorous fiction.I'm a Hitchhiker's Guide and Dirk Gently fan, and I thoroughly enjoyed Good Omens by Gaiman and Pratchett.Not many authors tickle my funny bone that way, but Moore is a welcome addition.

This was the book my husband & I listened to on audio book on the way to Bouchercon. We ended up playing the rest of it in our hotel room on the computer because we couldn't wait for the return trip to hear the rest.

3-0 out of 5 stars I miss Bill--spoilers ahead!!
Ok, I guess I'm in the minority here, but I like Bill.I've been hoping that Sookie and Bill would get back together, but after this book it's pretty clear that that's not happening.I do like Quinn, but not as much as Bill.As I said, I think I'm in the minority.As for the book it was ok.To me the first two were fabulous, but after that the series took a turn for the worse.Let's hope Sookie sticks with Quinn for more than a couple of pages. ...
