    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning
    Sandman is such an obvious choice for reprinting in the Absolute format, I'm surprised DC took this long to think of it. Previous reviewers have hit all the right points: the full leather binding, the extra heftiness of the volume, the glorious new look to the color. Nothing seems held back. I'm already salivating over the future volumes. Here are some questions DC should consider answering: Will the final volume include the two Death series? Will any volume include the 7-page story that appeared in a DC Sampler, and was later reprinted in the Fables and Reflections HC?
    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth your hard-earned cash!
    Frankly, I've thought that most of the "Absolute" editions were overpriced and a little too self-aggrandizing. Sometimes a good comic book is just a good comic book. I think that's enough. It doesn't have to be a seminal moment in the history of Western literature.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
    I got mine in the mail yesterday and it was my first exposure to "Sandman".I loved it and will get the other volumes as well.

    Editorial Review

    An emperor amasses an army of hundreds of thousands, drawn from twocontinents, to invade a third continent and conquer a tiny, divided nation. Onlya few hundred warriors stand against them. Yet the tiny nation is saved. Itsounds like the plot of a preposterous fantasy novel. It is historical fact. In481-480 B.C., King Xerxes of Persia raised forces in Asia and Africa and invadedGreece with an army so huge that it "drank rivers dry." Then they entered themountain pass of Thermopylae and encountered 300 determined soldiers fromSparta....Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny!
    This is a georgeous folio book.Frank Miller at his best.Dark and vivid.This book was out of print for a while, and it is an absolute treasure to own.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Herodotus meets Sin Cityand gets whacked.
    I was hoping that Miller would turn his talents from the dark side and we would see how well he could reproduce a Classical Epic.What we get is a blood splattered "300 Lacedaimons in the Hood".The Spartans are presented to be a buch of Homo erotic Rastafarians.The Persians rather than the Noble Middle Eastern Autocrats presented in their Art are drawn by Miller to resemble African American Gangstas with piercings and Skin art everywhere.I was looking for Xerxes to have a grill and whitewalls on his chariot.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I will always think of this as 'Zoo.'What can I say?I'm special.
    But do not miss this trade paperback.The story is as fine as you'll ever read, a tale as old as time.And the artwork is fantastic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change
    I have all but given up on the so called "Vampire Hunter" books (there is no hunting only sex), but this book was why I first started reading her work in the first place.She can weave a great story, and leave the reader on the edge of their seat waiting for more.Everyone changes as time goes on, and I can appreciate that but they say when you are lost look to your roots.Maybe there is hope for Anita yet.No sex, just wonderful short stories that prove Hamilton can do it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars OMG
    Ouch.This was pretty painful.Oh, Goddess; where to start?Okay, first:If you are totally stoked about the December release of Mistral's Kiss, DO NOT read this book.Most especially, do not read the introductions - at least not if you'd like to continue to think of Laurell Hamilton as a nice person.I was totally stoked about the December release of Mistral's Kiss, and now I'm wondering if I will read any more Hamilton ever.
    5-0 out of 5 stars See?
    She can write and excellent story (stories) without burying it in endless creative sex. These stories are a collection of various places in her very creative worlds. No Merry Gentry story but two Anita stories an early one and a more evolved later one. And some stories from the world of Nightseer. Ms Hamilton has a very good grasp of how short stories work and an excellent ability to make them pop. The pacing is totally different. The difference between a sketch and a painting. She does it well. Now if we could just get her to do this with the Anita novels: more story, less paint. ... Read more

    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 politically correct shall inherit the earth
    Mr. Bradbury's prophetic work has come to pass in the politically correct world of thought controlled by political expediency and special interests.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking, but not amazing
    What made me pick up this book in the first place was everyone's fixation on how "thought-provoking" and "different" it was. I read it, and found myself agreeing with some aspects, confused by others, and downright bored by some.
    5-0 out of 5 stars read me
    Fahrenheit 451 is a read rich with a delicious story and social commentary.Guy Montag lives in a world made ironic because of the stark contrast to the way we wish our society was today.Firemen don't keep people safe from fires, they bust into houses starting fires.Scholars and professors live on the outside of society because of their love for books, philosophy, and sociology where in our world professors are on the inside and the ignorant majority are on the outside because of their lack of interest for the said disciplines.

    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. I have read his equally good books A Hat Full of Sky, The Wee Free Men, and The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents.
    5-0 out of 5 stars More Than a Boffo Book
    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A very good read - the series continues
    If you are a Terry Goodkind fan, you will have little trouble liking this book. Sure, the story line is somewhat played out, and many fans just want the final confrontation to resolve itself. But Goodkind has committed to taking us on a trilogy ride in the battle between the Richard Rahl side vs. the Jagang side. And guess what? Kahlen is in the middle of it. Again.
    2-0 out of 5 stars almost over...
    if you're like me, you're reading this book because it's the second to last and you just want to finish the series.because the series started out as amazing books that had non-stop action without all the nonsense and unrealism and lecturing that we get to deal with now...one more to go and then richard and kahlan can live happily ever after.yay!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it
    Ok I have to admit I wasnt expecting the "old" Terry to show up in this book but he did. It was interesting and exciting and enjoyable -It left me really looking forward to the next book and wishing it wasnt going to be the last.It is true that the word "phantom" is mentioned too often - and there is some of the usual lecturing that comes in all of Mr. Goodkind's books but it is no where near the last one or two.In short I enjoyed it from cover to cover .... now when is the next one being releasted? ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the series
    But what is wrong with this guy?Why is he taking so long between books?Another 3 or 4 year wait is NOT worth it.He will lose the fans he's got for no reason other than his procrastination.5 star book, but 2 points off for the delay. And yes, I bought it the first week it came out along with everyone else, that's the only reason he was on the best-seller list, not because of any 'staying power' in that list.
    2-0 out of 5 stars What a loss...
    Other reviewers here are worrying that Martin has entered Robert Jordan territory with this volume, but you have only to visit Martin's web page to guess what has really happened: he's badly distracted.Maybe that's why this book reads like unedited backgrounder draft.No editor worthy of the name should have let this go to print, but I'm sure the publisher finally gave up on the wait and insisted on something, anything...and what we get is this...mess. Honestly, it is WORK to read this book and, after the pure pleasure of reading its predecessors, a bitter disappointment.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A Passing Wind
    A lot of build up and fluff. You can speak that this is only 1/2 the book that Martin wanted to publish but with such a time gap between books and no substantial story line, all the characters and individual story lines are vanishing from my memory.To me, this book was a waste of both my money and time.I wish I could have skipped this book and since I probably will not lose any important story line information since I am starting to forget it anyway.I will state that the first three books were amazing and I am hoping the next book redeems my faith for what Martin has done in his first three books.My recommendation, skip this book ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointing effort...cliche' and formulaic.
    Unlike the rich, epic world of her Chalion series, what Bujold presents here a cliched fantasy that you can read in an afternoon.
    4-0 out of 5 stars so that's why this book felt unbalanced
    one reviewer wrote that the sequel, to be published more than six months from now, was apparently part of this book. if so, the decision was, as most american business decisions seem to be, a way to gouge the customer and make more money for people who already are rich beyond the dreams of avarice. at least with bujold, the reader is guaranteed language that is grammatical as well as elegant, and a vocabulary that is accurate, brilliantly used, and assumes intelligence in the readers.
    5-0 out of 5 stars More.I want more.
    LMB is one of only 2 authors that are on my hardback buy immediately list.Other authors have made the list in years past (Lackey. McCaffrey, Weber among others) only to be dropped to the wait for paperback list or even (in the case of L.K. Hamilton) wait for the library list.I'm happy to say that LMB's spot on the hardback list is quite secure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This series is a keeper!
    This, the fourth (and possibly - though, hopefully, not inevitably)final book in the saga of Kiron and his dragon Avatre keeps up with the pace of the earlier books and lives up to their promise.As other reviewers have said, the books tell of Kiron, the son of a farmer killed before his eyes by the enemy Tians.His family is taken into captivity and he doesn't know whether they live.Kiron (who is known by his ignoble child name of Vetch) is a serf, bound to the land that belonged to his family - lower than a slave. He has to work long and hard for the man who has acquired his family's land.All that sustains him is hatred for the enemy until one of the enemy, a dragon rider (or 'Jouster') named Ari, rescues him and takes him to care for his dragon.In a story reminiscent of Jane Yolen's Pit Dragon Trilogy, Kiron acquires a dragon of his own with whom he becomes besotted (again, there is the same feeling as 'impressing' an Anne McCaffrey dragon). I hasten to say that referring to Yolen and McCaffrey is not intended to suggest any lack of originality since these stories have all the character development and good writing Mercedes Lackey is famous for. The stories (which probably could stand on their own but are SO much better read in order), chart Kiron's development from a frightened, abused child into a self confident young man, a leader and the pivotal person in the peaceful union of two hitherto warring kingdoms. (If they have a message it is that enemies can become friends if seen as individuals -but the message doesn't get in the way of a 'good yarn'!)In the meanwhile there is all the excitement, struggle, romance and happiness anyone could wish for.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good read
    This is book four in the Jousters series and centers around the character of Kiron as he is dealing with coming into his own as the leader of the Jousters of the Two Kingdoms while dealing with some personal issues as well.In some parts I found the book a little predictable (mainly concerning his mother).I did enjoy the evolution of the relationship between Kiron and his lady (whose name escapes me at the moment).This could be the last book in the series but there is room, I think, for another book in the series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars exciting fantasy
    Kiron once known as the serf named Vetch was a captured peasant in the land of Tia, which was at war for years with his native Alta.He was Ari's dragon boy and stole a dragon's egg, caring for it until it hatched and then when it was grown enough he flew it to Alta where he taught the dragon riders how to bind their dragons to them with love not drugs.The Magi, an evil group of priests, were responsible for the war and the deaths that ensued in their quest to become the rulers of both lands. Kiron placed a significant role in defeating them.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's a Good buy
    It is a nice audio book.It does have it's flaws though.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, and well worth the money!
    I am not a "Total Ringophile", like some out there, but I have read the books three times and loved them. I lashed out and purchased this 46 CD set as I spend a lot of time on the commute to work. It is brilliant!Each CD has approx 15 "tracks" on it so that if you miss a bit as your mind wanders (as it does in the car..) you can just bounce back one track and hear that bit again, no problems. Rob Inglis does a great job, no question. It has added a new dimension to my experince of Tolkien's masterpiece, and I highly recommend it to all. BRILLIANT !

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ingles does a fantastic job
    I did not realize what a wonderful job that Ingles had done in this reading until I began listening to other audio books. Ingles manages to give each character a distinct voice and as you proceed, you recognize immediately who it is that is speaking.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent graphic novel that is compelling nearly 20 years later.
    Sales of V for Vindetta increased dramatically when the movie came out earlier this year.I happened to be one of those guys that wanted to read the graphic novel before I saw the movie.I am so grateful that I did.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici
    This was the first Alan Moore graphic novel that I have read, and I must say I was very pleased.This novel is much weightier than I expected as it grapples with philosophical and political issues such as "what is the government's responsibility to it's citizens?", and "can a terrorist be a hero?".The writing is definitely top notch, and the artwork was very good (not as good as Frank Miller's Sin City series, but still quite good).I would definitely recommend this graphic novel as well as the film adaptation (read the novel first if possible - I believe I enjoyed the film version much more having read the original source).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Anarchy Vs. Fascism
    A stones throw from the concept of the movie, which seemed to be Democracy vs. Fascism, this book read quite a bit better than the movie played.The movie was truly a good movie, so then it must follow that this book is an excellent book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is truly a "song" of ice and fire
    How interesting that Martin's short story, written in 1980, bears minor resemblances to his grand work of today.
    2-0 out of 5 stars There's really no age group for this book
    I hold Martin's Song of Ice and Frie series in high regard; the man is a talented writer.For adults.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Ice Dragon
    I got this book on Sept. 26th, 2006, in Dubuque, Iowa.George Martin was on a book signing for the release of this book, and due to this, the bookstore he was at was selling it early.

    I was somewhat dissapointed by this novel, brooks stated he would 'bridge' two wonderfully seperate series-word/void and shannara.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Bridging Word/Void with Shannara
    Terry Brooks revisits the world of his greatest work: The Word and the Void. That original trilogy was set in a modern day United States where there are demons working for the Void trying to turn humans to acts of evil to twist the world to be a more violent, dangerous, and lost place. John Ross, a Knight of the Word, fought daily against visions of the future that he had to try to prevent. Ross's visions were of events that could happen in his own lifetime and for all of Ross's success, all he did was delay the inevitable. Armageddon's Children is set some eighty years after Angel Fire East and the world is a ruined place and things are only fixing to get worse. Pollution is out of control, a nuclear war occurred, the humans which are "safe" live in compounds (like Seattle's Safeco Field) warded off against the outside world. Those compounds are all under siege and they are falling day by day until there will be nowhere left to run or hide. In Seattle there are gangs of children calling themselves Tribes. Adults have failed them and street children are not allowed in Compounds so they must survive by becoming their own families and looking out for each other. Humans who had been caught outside for too long and who somehow survived drinking radioactive water and eating off of the poisoned land have mutated. This is our world, only broken. This could be our future.
    2-0 out of 5 stars This is not my idea of a trilogy...
    I just finished this book a few minutes ago. The story is good, but I want to express my extreme frustration with the ending. A trilogy is a story told in three parts, NOT one third of a story that just stops and the reader has to wait a year for the next chapter. The books in Tolkien's Ring trilogy did not end with cliff hangers such as this. I have read every book Brooks has written. The other Word and Void books could stand alone.I am disapointed in the handling of this story so far.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great, though beware of seizures
    Really, the best word to describe this book is, "WHAT?", because once you finish reading it, that's pretty much what you're feeling. While reading the book, everything seems strange and confusing, and even when you're done, it's still very strange and confusing. Keeping track of the time and situation is especially hard, and very often you'll totally forget what story within a story within a story you're reading, which can be even more mind numbing and baffling.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Slaughterhouse-Five
    Slaughterhouse-Five is a satisfying novel by Kurt Vonnegut.what happens in this story is a boy named Billy Pilgrim gets abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore who send him in the past of world war 2.When billy goes into the past he becomes a prisoner of war and he talks about life in the concetration camps.Some of the parts in this boook are sad and some are funny.And the characters are mostley violent but some are not.If you like to read novels about war or sci-fi this would be a good beook to read.overall the book was good and it had a message about how he took his life in the past day by day.and how to live in such harsh conditions in the camps.I was vaery surprised on the theme of this book.From the title called Slaughterhouse-Five.I thought it would of been on animals at a butcher shop.I did not expect to read about World War 2 or about concentration camps.All of the other books that this author has written must be good if this book was.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Children's Crusade: A Duty Dance With Death
    Slaughterhouse-Five was, to say the least, one of the most interesting literary works I have ever read. The way Vonnegut presents the life of Billy Pilgrim is amazingly symbolic - everything has another meaning aside from its literal representation. The prose of the book is fantastic, it really fits the content of the book really well.

    4-0 out of 5 stars All said and done, I'm glad I read it
    I read the prequel trilogy as the books came out.Dune: House Atreides was a worthwhile effort, but things got progressively worse with House Harkonnen and House Corrino.To get to the meat of the story, you have to suffer trite cliches and a penchant for extreme violence.Honestly, it was almost as pathetic as Left Behind.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A Workmanlike Followup to Frank Herbert's Dune Novels
    I read Frank Herbert's Dune books many many years ago an while I remember the broad strokes of the expansive stories, many of the minute details have slipped away over the years. As such, I was able to approach Hunters of Dune without any conceits about comparing it to the original novels. All I wanted was an entertaining story that picked up the major threads from the previous books and brought some closure to the cliffhanger like ending of Chapterhouse Dune. On that level, I was satisfied with what Hunters of Dune gave me.
    2-0 out of 5 stars They shouldn't have bothered!!
    I have been excited about this book for quite some time, despite my reservations.I read the prequels and wished I hadn't bothered.I didn't even bother with the Butlerian Jihad prequels.But this I had to read because it was based on his outlines.This book was written for twelve yearolds who have never even read a Dune book.I'm tired of people saying that Brian should be given a break.He is not a good writer period.I read thisthing so fast because I didn't want to waste any more time than I had to. ...
