1-0 out of 5 stars HATE FICTION
Clearly the tens of millions of fouls who read this racist crap fail to see it for exactly what is; an endorsement of Ethnic cleansing. If the tables were turned and a Jew, or a Muslim wrote a series in which anyone who disagreed with Judaism, or Islam was BRUTALLY MURDERED than the same fundamentalists idiots who take such disgusting pleasure out of this garbage would go simply ape s**t. I do not know what is more pathetic the fact that there are actually fundamentalist Lunatics out there who write this truly unforgivable racist garbage, or the large number of dimwits out who eagerly wait to throw their money away on each installment of HATEFUL FILTH!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Review from a Perfect Score
The book starts off at Harry's aunt and uncle's house. Harry goes back to Hogwarts for his second year at school. There is a new character and his name is "Dobby." He is a slave. He does not want Harry Potter to go to Hogwarts. Dobby made it so that Harry could not get on the train so Harry took a flying car. And Dobby made the Blunger in Quitage chase him and break his arm.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
Great book, but did anyone notice that they left there trunks in the trunk of the car yet had them when they got to school...?
5-0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets
An absolutely enthralling book. The story can grasp the attention of 10 year olds and 30 year olds. A great story to read to your children before bedtime. J.K. Rowling is amazing, she brings back my memories of Ronald Dahl and other great writers of the past. If you dont have this book you should get it right now! There is no time to waste, a world of wizardy and magic lies ahead of you! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Left Behind takes a breather
Most people who read this book have already read the first 2 in the series as well. That being the assumption, this book tends to recap a little bit too much on the previous stories. I understand the need to explain to readers who didn't start with the first book, but for those of us who did....I found myself skipping several pages at a time on more than one occasion to get past it. Overall though, a decent read though. 3 books down in the series....lots to go!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

For most children, summer vacation is something to look forward to.Butnot for our 13-year-old hero, who's forced to spend his summers with an aunt, uncle,and cousin who detest him. The third book in J.K. Rowling's HarryPotter series catapults into action when the young wizard "accidentally" causes the Dursleys' dreadful visitor Aunt Marge to inflate like a monstrous balloon and drift up to the ceiling. Fearing punishment from Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon (and from officials at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who strictly forbid students to cast spells in the nonmagic world of Muggles), Harry lunges out into the darkness with his heavy trunk and his owl Hedwig.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like the book
I choose to read Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban this summer,as a summer reading book because I thought the movie was good. So , I decided to read the book and see what is different and the same. J.k. Rowling has a great nack for writing children's because i love the books she writes.What I don't like is that the book ends and doesn't say where Harry stays. Does he stay with his godparent or dr does he go back to his uncle & aunts house.Maybe he stays with his godparent or go's to his uncles or he stays in hogwarts. I would like to read the fourth book to find out.

4-0 out of 5 stars It was a great book
This summer i read the book Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban. I thought the book was greta and so was the movie. In the book there is some parts that are the same in the movie and somethings that are in the book not in the movie.That is what i did not like about the book the parts should of been explain so you could understand it more. Overall i like reading Harry Potter books because they are very interesting and exciting to me.

4-0 out of 5 stars It is very funny !!! great book!!!
This is a plot for everyone because it is very entertaining. It is also very easy to understand. Once you start reading, you can hardly put the book down. There are also links to other episodes of the book that makes the reader want to read more. There are usages of magic, fantasy creatures, and competitive sports in the plot to create colorful variety to the audience. J.K. Rowling uses the purity of adolescence and interprets it in the form of courage, cooperation, and youthful innocence that showed the power to overcome many things.

Say you've spent the first 10 years of your life sleeping under thestairs of a family who loathes you. Then, in an absurd, magical twist of fate you find yourself surrounded by wizards, a caged snowy owl, a phoenix-feather wand, and jellybeans that come in every flavor, including strawberry, curry, grass, and sardine. Not only that, but you discover that you are a wizard yourself! This is exactly what happens to young Harry Potter in J.K. Rowling's enchanting, funny debut novel, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazazing!
This is clearly the best book in the series to read at an early age.Its non-lengthly and vert exiting and will get children wnting to read bigger books like the rest of the series.It is about a teenage boy who lives with his dispicable relatves the Dursleys becouse his parents died in what he thinks is a car accidents.He gets an overbearing amount of acceptance letters to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry delivered by many pesky owls.He finally figures out he is a wizard fom the letters that his dispicable uncle ahd to try to keep from him.He goes to Hogwarts on a train that Harry had to walk through a wall to get to it.On the way in the bus he met Ron Weasley who eventually realizes he is talking to a living legend.Harry's parents had actually died by the wand of Voldemort.Voldemort was ann evil wizard who tried to kill the magic world.Harry survived becouse his mom saved hm in a strange way.Buy this book and read the amazing story of Harry Potter
5-0 out of 5 stars Good for all
As an adult and a parent I can't recommend these books enough. And I'm amazed the religious fundamentalists can't see past the magic and see the true central theme to the series. That being love is the most powerful force there is. Not evil. My daughters' grandparents have forbidden her from reading these books. Yet they have never read a single page of any of the books. This type of ridiculous judgement has to stop. These stories have everything a growing mind needs. After reading some of the reviews on this page all I can say is that I'm truly glad to see there are still rational people in this world.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Harry Potter series is a must read!!
Some people don't like the Harry Potter series because of the whole whitch/wizard and magic thing, but if you don't mind that, these books are great! It's a series that has it all: mystery, humor, etc. It has great charactors that you really feel like you know, and it has a great moral too: good over evil.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read this book, learn the truth behind the administration.
After hearing Bill Clinton's superb retort against Fox's hatchet man and kept hearing him tell the dude to read Clarke's book I said to myself, why not read it and see what he's talking about.Wow...it's an incredible insider's look at the fight against terrorism past and almost to the present.The conservative sound machine can try and spin Clarke's words however they want, but the man served 4 administrations while trying to secure our country so he's not a partisan clown.Basic upshot, Clinton tried tons of things to stop terrorism and it was a top priority in his administration, and when the chimp in chief got in to office, he was more concerned about a failed anti-missile program than terrorism and down-graded terrorism priorities; failed to properly respond to the attack by al-Quaeda by not doing enough in Afghanistan, and then started this war in Iraq that was basically a recruiting poster to even moderate islamic people to take up arms against an invading nation.I don't recommend many books, but this was a real eye-opener by a man who seriously knows his stuff, and who sinecerly cared about the security of his nation.His conclusion, be afraid people because we don't have the terrorists on the ropes and many things needed to be done to secure our nation haven't been done, and there doesn't seem to be any plans.
5-0 out of 5 stars Continuity is Key.........
Either fight or scuttle.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fightingthe Enemy; Fighting Ourselves
Clarke's first-hand account of the circumstances leading to his exclusion from the discussions of the counterterrorism "experts"--Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, and Cheney--followed by this terrible triumvirate's acting on the foregone conclusion that nothing but an invasion of Iraq would slake America's thirst for revenge and restore America's pride and power is, if not the only book you need to read about the post 9/11 fiasco, certainly among the more lucid, level-headed, and edifying accounts about the arrogantly myopic thinking that got us into Iraq.

Bush at War was the first book that I have read by Bob Woodward. Of course, I am somewhat familiar with Woodward's work and his reputation as one of the greatest living journalists. But, "current events" is not a subject that I normally look for when choosing literature. The idea behind Bush at War intrigued me though. Here we have a presidential administration obviously very fond of secrecy, but they are also willing to grant extensive interviews to Woodward -- one of the reporters that exposed the covert goings-on of another secretive White House. My curiosity was peaked.

3-0 out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars, because it is half a good book
When the author focuses on what she knows - autism, neurobiology, and domestic livestock - this book offers many insights. By applying some excellent existing research in neurobiology about what animals are truly capable of perceiving and feeling (read some of the referenced books for confirmation of emotions in animals) and applying her own experiences with domestic livestock and insights founded in her autism (a much more visual world than "normal" people (her word, not mine)), Dr. Grandin shows how a more visual, detail-oriented animal encounters the world.
1-0 out of 5 stars NO stars for this book!!
What a bunch of high school hallway gossip! The author does not know the difference between white and albino! The 'genetics' discussions on color (which includes people, chickens, horses, and dogs - all of it suspect) and mutts vs. purebred dogs are total claptrap! I confess, I couldn't get past page 87 when the author explains that 'one of the reasons wolves turned into dogs was that nursing human mothers probably adopted orphaned wolf cubs and nursed them at their breasts along with their human babies.' WHAT?? A waste of my hard-earned $. Having read those parts I cannot believe anything that went before or that follows, not that I'm reading any further. How is a multi-published author allowed to put such uneducated 'information' into print? And now she's influenced readers -- a terrible situation. Publisher, where are your pre-publication reviews? Shame on you for allowing this ignorant speculation to be published!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very, very interesting
This book was someone else's bookclub selection, and I think having no expectations when I picked it up really helped in my having that WOW experience that some folks report with this book and others miss. Yes, the prose needed much better editing: overuse of repetition, "stock" phrases, and "hanging" assertions that should have been cleaned up.However, I found the discussions of brain development/evolution, similarities between certain animal behaviors and human behaviors, development of language in different animals, and the coevolution of humans and dogs to be facinating (oops, just gave away the ending!).I found the side discussion of outcome-based audits interesting and enlightening.I also liked Dr. Temple's recommendation that people with autism be hired for baggage checking positions.Great idea! Although the book really goes all over the place, I found it a wonderful opportunity to engage my "seeking/hunting" motivation (you'll have to read the book for that one), and worth wading through the flaws to pick up the nuggets of gold. ...

As a piece of entertainment, this book falls flat. Way flat.There is a story here, but mundane sub-plots (including the love story) are thrown in in an attempt to fill the pages to make it a book.I found myself skipping pages - lots of them - to get to the point.Overall, very disappointing.

"Tribulation Force" is not as good as the first book in the "Left Behind" series.The authors seem to be doing so much maneuvering to get their characters into the right crucial positions around the Antichrist, that there's almost no time left for the story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Adding form to chaos...
Throughout the history of human existence, life has had the potential for being overwhelming.However, this potential has never been greater than in the modern Western society - despite all of our 'labour-saving' devices and a veritable explosion of courses, books, and strategies for coping and managing stress, there is more to overwhelm us than ever.We look back with nostalgia to 'simpler times' or look forward to an easier future, not realising that neither is true.Into the mix of the rough and tumble of everyday life, sometimes we are presented with an even greater overwhelming - God calls us to do something, to be something.Talk about the ultimate overwhelming!
5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Explication of Christian Spirituality
As a practicing Christian and as a doctoral student in religous studies, I have read and perused a number of modern volumes on Christian Spirituality and I must say that this one is simply the best modern text on the subject. Ford's extensive theological and biblical background informs every word yet every word is accessible and plainly spoken.(Very much resembles C.S. Lewis in content and style). Anyone who is serious about their Christian journey should read and savour this volume.If you dare, it will change your life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Astounding !
This is an amazing fiction that takes you not by the hands but by your soul to an astounding Brave New World - but be prepared to the ending......It was the very first Margaret Atwood's title I've ever read and it took me by surprise for its creativity and great sense of suspense together with the non-linear development. Try this one and you will not be disapointed if you're looking for a book that would hook you while reading and will stay with you for a long time afterwards.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Atwood masterpiece
I found this book haunting. It's been many months since I finished this book, yet the characters still linger. This book doesn't really belong with the typical SciFi crowd, but instead should be grouped with Orwell, Bradbury, Huxley and Burgess. I recommend Oryx and Crake to anyone who's curious. Margaret Atwood is a gem, and will be long remembered for her contributions to literature. College students already study her work, and that will only continue in the years to come.

2-0 out of 5 stars Should have been much, much better
I like Atwood, and Oryx and Crake is well-written. That said, this book is nowhere near as good as it should be, and if you read science fiction regularly you'd do well to avoid it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite
Normally I truly relate to the main character, Kinsey Millhone, who is sufficiently offbeat to make me appreciate her. However, in this one there were so many references to fat and flab, and so many outright disparaging descriptions in general that I found myself entirely distracted from the story. I hadn't pegged Ms. Millhone as that shallow.
5-0 out of 5 stars Surprise after Surprise!
F IS FOR FUGITIVE is one of my favorites! Bad girl Jean Tiberlake was killed and her ex-boyfriend, Bailey Fowler, convicted of her murder. After seventeen years in prison, he escapes. Kinsey Millhone is hired to find the killer. The catch: Is the killer Fowler or someone else?
5-0 out of 5 stars an unusual and excellent mystery
"F is for Fugitive" is one of the better Kinsey mysteries: engrossing from the first chapter, it reads quickly and consistently.Although the book is 300 pages long - longer than most of Grafton's novels - there is no mid-story lull.It bypasses much of Kinsey's usual backdrop: the action takes place in a small town ninety miles away from Santa Teresa, so Henry Pitts, Rosie, the California Fidelity crew, and Kinsey's bachelorette life in her small apartment are peripheral or entirely absent from the story.The book focuses entirely on the mystery of an twenty-year-old murder in a small town and a cast of characters who all seem to have something to hide.It's quintessential Sue Grafton: suspenseful and well-written, a pleasure to read from beginning to end. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars fun to read
Her Serene Highness Gabriella de Cordina, called Brie by friends and family, doesn't remember anything about her life.She was kidnapped, and the shock of her experience, as well as the drugs that were used on her, left her without any memories about herself or the people she knew.Her father, Prince Armand, knows that she is still in danger, so he asks ex-cop Reeve MacGee to be her bodyguard until those who took her are captured.5-0 out of 5 stars A Royal Romance!
If one were to ask me who writes good romance books there might be many names I could offer.But if someone were to ask me who is a wonderful romance writer, surely Nora Roberts would be the first name I would think of to suggest.In addition, when it comes to writing family series, there are no other authors who even compare to this author.4-0 out of 5 stars good book to read
This the first book of the Cordina's Royal Family series. It doestn't have the usual deep that Ms. Roberts puts in her books, but never the less, it is a very enjoyable book. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The central feature of this Stephen Frey novel is afascination with the Kennedy assassination and the answer that conspiracy junkies havelong believed: that the United States government has been involved incovering up the existence of a second gunman ever since that fateful day in November 1963. In Frey's world, while the government was notresponsible for the assassination, the belief that evidence of a conspiracywould have pushed the Cold War into a hot one "forced" those at the top tokeep that evidence to themselves.

2-0 out of 5 stars I thought this one was dumb. He should stick to what he knows
This one is (another) Kennedy assassination conspiracy. Frey is best when he writes about deals, intrigue and all the rest of it. This wasn't bad, but it didn't really hold my interest because of the plot. For those who care, it's alright. But it doesn't fall apart like another book in terms of writing. He's an uneven writer. Some are great insider views into the world of VCs and deals, but the writing falters. Others are better written, like this one, but the plot is silly.
1-0 out of 5 stars That's an hour of my life I can't get back....yawn...
I tried three times to get into this book and couldn't get past the first 100 pages. Read the more negative reviews and take heed. I'm not an author, but I'm a voracious reader and this was so awful I tossed it in the recycling rather than foist it off on some poor unsuspecting soul.

3-0 out of 5 stars oh the agony of the ending!
OK, I am an admitted hater of Crichton's work.However, Sphere was entertaining and had me guessing until a forth of the way through (I've never seen the movie, or heard anything about the book).However, any fond feelings that I may have felt for this book was completely decimated by the cop-out ending!
2-0 out of 5 stars This book has a special place in my heart
This is one of those rare treats in the literary world that grab your attention, keep you enthralled, and refuse to let you stop reading.I read this book and literally did not sleep one night because I was too busy trying to finish the book.But what makes this book so rare is not because of how good it is, but it's because how good everything is until the very end.That's right, the incredible cop-out of an ending made me mad enough to hate the entire novel.This is "deus ex machina" in its finest form.This is unexcusable in my opinion.I just don't get it.I just don't understand how one can (seemingly) work so hard on a work of fiction only to screw everyone in the final pages.I gave it two stars (as opposed to one) for fooling everyone into reading through this book.This is by far and away my most dissappointing reading ever.

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT WAS WITH THE ENDING??!!!???!?!!!!!!??????
It's probably been 15 years since I read it, and EVERY person in the years since with whom I have discussed this book has said the same thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mr. X
With The Chronicles of Narnia C.S. Lewis creates a magical winter wonderland that involves adventure and suspense. It is a story about four children that are sent to live with a professor who resides in a huge mansion. They discover a world that is always winter and never Christmas. The residents are tormented by a witch that can turn people into stone. Soon a lion named Aslan arrives and brings spring with him and the power to bring stoned people back to life. Ultimately, Aslan kills the witch and the four children become kings and queens of Narnia. It is a quick, effortless read that is entertaining. Once you start you will not want to put the book down. It is an easy recommendation for anyone. I highly recommend giving the book a chance and picking up a copy of it, especially for kids.
4-0 out of 5 stars Kid Friendly
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis was a great children's book. The adventures of Lucy, Edmond, Susan and Peter started when they had to move to their grandfather's house due to a war going in London. As they were playing a game of hide and seek they stumbled upon the magical world of Narnia. There they joined forces with the great leader Aslan and together overthrew the evil white witch. I have read this book as a younger kid and just now and there was a big difference in the way I read it. As a kid it was a lot more magical and I couldn't put it down I just had to read it. Now it might be the fact that this is the second time I have read this but it wasn't as good this time around. I had more wonder in my eyes I guess as a kid. I would recommend this book to everyone but I do truly believe kids will enjoy this book more than adults.

5-0 out of 5 stars A novel perfect for all ages.
The popular children's book The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, teaches biblical messages through a dramatic and intriguing plot. It all begins in WWII when a mother sends her four children off to the country to live with a professor for safety. The children were very curious and often spent hours playing hide and go seek, which lead to them discovering many new rooms and parts of the mansion. One day the youngest girl, Lucy, hid in a coat wardrobe. She walked to the very back of the closet where she revealed a new land. It was snowing and right away she discovered an odd creature. Lucy eventually went back through the wardrobe and tried to explain her discoveries to her brothers and sisters but none of them believed her. Finally Lucy was given the opportunity to prove her tale and her siblings peter, Edmund and Susan followed. Once they all entered the land they were told by a creature named Tumnus that the queen would want to kill them if she ever found them. This is because they were human and threatened her power. The rest of the novel is a biblical parallel to basics tenants of Christianity. The good and evil were always at war and at one point the Lion was slain. He rose from the dead and was able to overthrow evil. This is directly related to what the bible teaches. I believe this a great story. At a young age it has a fascinating plot with magical creatures and a powerful ending. At a more mature age is has vast symbolism that still allows for an easy read, without lacking in complexity. I think the characters in the new land are remotely bizarre but I enjoyed that if left me wondering about their personality because it lacks the usual stereotypes that are often placed on everyday characters. I couldn't tell whether the character was sympathetic or an antagonistic until I kept reading. Overall I highly suggest reading this book. When the final page is read it will leave you thinking. It's a quick read with deep meaning. ... Read more
