"I recently read all three of the Ethan Gage adventures and loved them. Dietrich is an entertaining and humorous writer. I loved his writing and found myself laughing out loud and unable to wait to read the next adventure."
"I have found each of Steve Berry's books to be extremely well written and researched. After reading any of his historical-mystery novels I realize that I'm learning as I read. This is the novel that got me hooked on Steve Berry."
"While many of Rollins' books are okay for a rainy day read, I've found his more recent novels to be more complex and complete. He's the author who wrote the novel that goes with the latest Indiana Jones movie."
"Reilly is a master at writing action novels that read like the screenplay for a movie. All of his books are cover to cover action so fast and deadly I kept holding my breath and have to continually remind myself to breathe."
"I ravenously read anything Cussler at first, but his books became boring and formulaic to me. This book, however, had something pleasingly different about it that reminded me why I read Cussler in the first place."
"Cussler breaks from his usual formula with a focus beneath the waves to follow a steam engine as it races halfway across the U.S. I found the combination of Old West train robbery and police chase to be an exciting, page-turning combination."
"Aside from the great mystery writing, favorite part of this series is experiencing the most interesting, elusive character of any novel I've read. Special Agent Pendergast is wonderfully realized, yet the reader only experiences a sliver of his character in each book. Only by reading more do you get a better, but never complete, view into this intriguing character."
"My wife and I read through the entire series as she was pregnant. I loved them for myself, but also highly recomend them for the classroom. The series is creatively written, bringing Greek gods to life in modern day America. Details like the main character's ADHD being explained as his "battle reflexes" make the books a joy to read."
"While neither mystery, escape, thriller, or action, I couldn't help but include this book. Written by an author without autism, it is written by the point of view of a boy with autism. This attempt to reveal the thoughts and understanding of a person with autism really made me think, while keeping me wholly entertained as well."
