    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Avid Reader
    I usually read one book and then open the next one without a thought. I finished this, sat down and had a good cry (which i never do) and spent some time leafing back through the pages to find out what touched me so much. Turns out it was the whole book and the intricate way the author painted a love story.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MOVING * UNUSUAL * HEARTBREAKING * IT JUST DRAWS YOU IN
    I'm not very fond of fiction but after a recommendation from a bookstore employee, I decided to give it a chance and I am just GLAD I did. I totally loved this story. It's so unusual yet touching that you will not want to put it down.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Worthy of Re-Reading Every Now and Then
    I've a copy of this one in my bedside table because every now and then I like to get it out and read a few pages, because it makes me feel good.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This is no Little Prince
    I feel like I am pushing against the tide, but perhaps I can warn others, like me, who agreed to read this book because of comparisons to St. Exupery's classic, The Little Prince.It is too late to warn off my book club.Others expecting anything remotely as charming, disarming, witty, and downright delightful as Le Petit Prince should look elsewhere.I have read St. Exupery, Mr. Coelho, and you are no St. Exupery.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Very Confusing Text!!!
    I'm in an eighth grade honors class, and had to read this book for an assignment.Unfortunately, I found the book vey boring and extremely hard to understand.The text was very confusing, with all the different lessons, all being learned at the same time.I do not recommend this book to anyone under 16.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beware of Foreign Editions
    WARNING: The Alchemist is one of my favorite books. In fact, it was my inspiration when I set off on the journey to make my own dream come true--to realize my own "Personal Legend". The original was written in Portugese so what we see is a translation.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid SW Book
    First off, if I could, I would rate this a 4.5.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutelly oustanding!
    I finished it last night, and I'm fascinated with it. The story of Darth Bane and the dogma of 2 sith "one to embody the power, and another to crave it" is amazingly explained. You can also see that the Jedi Order was much different (arrogant) from the one we know (Yoda's Order).
    5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet Dark Side Read
    Awesome.Des' trip from abused miner to one of the most powerful Sith Lords ever is full of betrayal, intrigue, and good-old-fashioned lightsaber fights.Bane truely lives up to that name.He rejects the watered down Sith teachings at Korriban's academy and learns from only the best: Darth Revan.

    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 ...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. ...

    Editorial Review

    In most thrillers, "hardware" consists of big guns, airplanes, military vehicles, and weapons that make things explode. Dan Brown has written a thriller for those of us who like our hardware with disc drives and who rate our heroes by big brainpower rather than big firepower. It's an Internet user's spy novel where the good guys and bad guys struggle over secrets somewhat more intellectual than just where the secret formula is hidden--they have to gain understanding of what the secret formula actually is.Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but flawed techo-thriller
    The National Security Agency's new and mighty code-cracking computer, TRANSLTR, has been working on a single puzzle for so long that the top cryptographer at "No Such Agency" (as it's nicknamed) can't believe her eyes when she sees its time elapsed counter. Her boss, Deputy Director Strathmore, has called her in on a Saturday because he trusts his protege to help him obtain the algorithm's pass-key without letting anyone else know what's going on. This algorithm, called Digital Fortress, is billed by its creator - a disgruntled and idealistic former NSA employee - as the only uncrackable encryption code ever written. Strathmore has fed it into TRANSLTR to test that claim. He must have the pass-key to carry out his plan for Digital Fortress, assuming it really can't be broken.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Abridged CD was interesting, but...
    Digital Fortress, the CD, was narrated by Bruce Sabath.Since I haven't read the unabridged version (and haven't read any other reviews of the abridged version), I can't comment whether the editors make a so-so story better or worse by cutting it down.In the abridged version, perhaps the unbelievable occurrences were tempered by the interest I had in the workings (real or imagined) of the ultra-secret NSA and the code-breakers.
    2-0 out of 5 stars a little too far fetched
    Maybe it's just the geek in me crying out for mercy, but I find a lot of the details of this book pretty far-fetched.Plus, after we figured out whodunit and such, it just seemed to drag on forever.I ended up skimming the last 30 pages or so just to get it over with.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A slow start...a rousing finish!
    This volume picks up the plot line where the *Galileo Affair* left off. The principal players are young Frank Stone, his lovely young wife Giovanna (ex-Marcolli), Sharon Nichols, and the irrascable Ruy Sanchez. The *bad guys*, Cardinal Borjas and a lengthy cast of characters are seeking to neutralize pope Urban VIII, due to his acceptance of the USE and the *foreighn witches* from Grantville.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Good writing in an exceptional series
    Eric Flint and Andrew Dennis have written a great follow-up to their Galileo Crisis. It is not as much fun as that book: there was a lot of humor in Galileo, with a cute ending. A nice love story or two as well.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Law an improvement
    The first book in this side story about the USE that takes place in Italy is an improved story from the Galileo Affair. Frank Stone, the eldest son of the Stoner clan (well it was a druggy comune and the family name is Stone) has set up a Frank's Place, his version of the Committee Of Correspodence's Golden Arches, to serve pizza and wine. I really hope that in Italy the rest of the CoC's offices become Frank's Places, because I like the idea of bringing American pizza's to the forefront of Italy like we did in WWII with American soldiers. Note: they still make better pizzas than we do if my last visit to Sicily is any indication. What I like about this story is that the silliness of the first book is lessened, while the insight into the barochian politics of Spain, Rome, and the Vatican is looked at more closely. I really like the way Frank has developed his version of the CoC in Rome and I look forward to how it evolves in the third book. Sharon Nichol's wedding with Ruy Sanchez looks to be a very good team as far as Sharon's diplomacy and Ruy's spymanship is concerned. They both make great foils for each other. The coverage of the Pope and his nephew Antonio Barberini is a fascinating look into the workings of the church during the 1600's, remember that the French only lost control of the Catholic Church about one generation ago, and how much influence the Spanish had on Catholic policy. Cardinal Borja's plot to change Catholic policy is fun to watch, and his tool Francisco de Queverdo y Villega makes for a good rival for Ruy as spymasters. The strength of this novel, more like the main storyline, is its characterization and its look at politics, its downgrading of the silliness of the first book is a very serious plus. What is missing is David Weber's counter-balance of Republican values. ... Read more

    I would have to say this is the strongest story of the trilogy, EXCEPT for the ending. Stirling has had trouble with endings before, using Deus ex Machina to solve the Island in the Sea of Time trilogy (I kept thinking, with 100 pp. left, "there's no time for a conclusive battle!"). Although this might also be considered a "Deus" ending, it is more of the tragic hero type. The problem is that I just did not like it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Read and Fitting Conclusion to the Trilogy
    The third in the series does not disappoint the fans.I was particularly happy to see some attention paid to Corvallis.Although clearly not Mr. Sterling's favorite, it is the only government in the trilogy which has any chance to retain a Republic with a true democratic system.The citizens of Corvallis are making a real attempt to hang onto the hard won centuries of progress and not slide into feudalism or superstition like many of our protagonists in the story (Arminger, Havel, Juniper, Astrid).The battle against the Protector is well done.I did find it hard to believe that many of the pre-Change population could have so thoroughly regressed into a feudal mentality but I guess that is the perogative of a science fiction writer.Kudos to Mr. Sterling.I hope to see more spin offs in the future.If so I really hope we see the gradual advance out of feudal mentality and into a 19th century style economy offset with a 20th century knowledge layover and political system. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must buy for Halo fans...
    If you are in any way, a Halo fan, you owe it to yourself to read these books. This is, in my opinion, THE best series I have ever read, hands down. I would still like the series even if I hadn't played the game. Thank you Eric Nylund.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Halo Books
    Im still reading the first book at a little bit over half way. So far i think this book is very good and really helps readers get a better understanding of the story and the game.

    Intense is the word for Ender's Game.Aliens have attacked Earth twice and almost destroyed the human species.To make sure humans win the next encounter, the world government has taken to breeding military geniuses -- and then training them in the arts of war... The early training, not surprisingly, takes the form of 'games'... Ender Wiggin is a genius among geniuses; he wins all the games... He is smart enough to know that time is running out.But is he smart enough to save the planet? ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars SPECIALS
    This is a spectacular ending to a fabulous trilogy. The plot and characters provoke questions on the importance of friendship and physical power. Tally Youngblood has undergone her second operation: she is now a fierce looking special who keeps Uglyville and New Pretty Town in line. What she used to call bubbly is now icy, and she is endowed with lighting-fast reflexes and superhuman strength. Tally soon discovers that the lesion curing pills have gone in to mass production, and are being handed out all over the city. Her special circumstances operation makes her believe that this is horrible, and that it is something to stop. On a trip back from crashing a pill-distributing party in Uglyville, she forces Shay to take her to Zane, who she has not entirely forgotten. They see that he is now cured, though he still feels the aftereffects of their pill-taking mishap, and that the Crims are now up to more serious tricks than crossing the borders on hoverboards. When he and some others of their old clique go on a journey to the New Smoke, Tally tracks behind them and in doing so disobeys orders from Shay. When she gets to The New Smoke, after a long time of struggling to understand how the Crims' minds are working, she gets a big surprise. During her time there she takes some heart-crushing blows, and learns in the end that specials really can cry. This is a remarkable book that leaves you to contemplate Tally's character and her strength- mentally and physically. It has a great ending, with an unexpected story twist that leaves you wondering whether she will ever live happily ever after. Read this if at all possible, and the other two in this trilogy along with it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Specials
    I just got to read this, and I was very happy with the ending to the trilogy. Once I picked the book up, I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what happens and whether Tally will become less self-centered, and I was very pleased with how everything turned out. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars A readable and sometimes enjoyable chapter in a poorly conceived series
    This second installment in the new 9-volume Legacy of the Force series proves one thing - even a good writer can't make up for a silly plot.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Story
    Great Story, set in one of the best Universe's ever created.
    3-0 out of 5 stars The Fine Line Between Circular History and Boring Repetition
    The book itself was fine, Traviss' usual style (which can get too into the character at times, talking about every little emotion, but better too into the character that not enough character) and her love of the Mandos again coming up with Boba Fett (who I actually liked as a counterpoint to the Solos, being used to show his family coming together even as Han and Leia's falls apart, good thematic job there), but I think that there is something fundamentally wrong with this series.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Read...For those who don't mind Jacen Solo!
    In my opinion, Betrayal by Aaron Allston was a nice addition to the Star Wars series.It has its faults, but overall it was a good read.Most of the story surrounds Jacen and Ben, but Han, Leia, Jaina, Zekk, and Mara are all in the book at one point or another.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Really Good
    This one is really really good.Best since Destiny's Way in the NJO.Final scenes are great. Some of the "intrigue" gets a little confusing to non Star Wars book geeks (planet names, bit part characters etc leave you wondering, "Where is he/she again?"). Other than, pure fun.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good First Act
    I have read every prequel era novel, the original trilogy novels, and the Shadows of the Empire. I never read the Thrawn Era and New Jedi Order novels, yet I did not feel lost when Allston described and defined the characters that were central to the NJO Series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise
    I got "Black Order" without knowing the author or hearing anything about the book. I have to give props to a book that makes me seek out more by that author, which is exactly what happened after reading this one. Since then, I've only read an earlier Rollins book ("Amazonia") but I can already see that in later books, he's willing to inject a little more humor. "Black Order's" Fiona is one of my favorite characters I've encountered in a long time. She's fiesty, hilarious and so cool. The writing is more colorful, the way he frames the stories is more skillful in this book than "Amazonia." And it's got enough meat for the smart set: lots of history, travel, nature, philosophy. I heard the audiobook version and it did drag a little when the science got too heavy -- but there was enough fast-paced action to balance it all. Rollins has to be a fan of the James Bond and "Indiana Jones" b/c you definitely see elements of those in his work. That's all fine with me because I say: bring on more Sigma Force!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read!!!
    Best of his books so far!A fast-paced, exciting way to escape for a few hours like all of this author's books.It also has some thought-provoking ideas.One of the few adventure books I will keep to read again.It traces the line between realism and the supernatural like Preston and Childs; adds a dose of covert action like Vince Flynn and then throws in a few of physicist Freeman Dyson's ideas on quantum physics and our innermost being (see Infinite in all Directions.)Fascinating combination and a great read!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Children of the Bell
    James Rollins novels are generally readable, but several of his most recent, in particular Map of Bones and this new release, Black Order show greatly improved structure and narration.While SIGMA Force stories have appeared before, Rollins has greatly developed the basis of this series, and the result is characters that have some claim for personality and glimmers of original plotting.In a genre that isn't particularly noted for novelty and depth of plot, this is a welcome change.If you have enjoyed Rollin's stories before you will like this new work even better.
