4.0 out of 5 stars The good news is that the plot is so fast paced ..., August 16, 2015
This review is from: Nightfall (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Nightfall was, for a YA novel, surprisingly original. Night and day each last fourteen years, and the citizens of Bliss all clear out when night comes. No one knows why, but they do. You can bet our charming fourteen year old protagonists will figure this out when they are accidentally left behind when the ships of townspeople leave.

This novel is extremely plot driven; I probably can't give you more than three adjectives describing the personalities of the main characters. The good news is that the plot is so fast paced that you probably won't even notice. The setting was interesting, but I wanted to know much more. What is the rest of this world like? Why is there night for 14 years in Bliss, but not in the desert that is a mere boat ride away?

All in all, I had some questions, but I picked it up for a quick, creepy, action packed read and that is what I got.

This series is getting too unrealistic in terms of characters and plot lines. Sure it's fun to keep readers guessing, but at least make things reasonable. The Italian setting remains a draw.

4.0 out of 5 stars Game Theory, June 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Much less predictable than your average YA novel, and with well developed, non trite characters. It's difficult to review this book without getting into the plot of the first in the series, which I don't want to give away here. Let's just say it's a variation on the magic fantasy world theme, with colonialism and geopolitics for teens thrown in.

It's a good quality oven mitt but I find myself avoiding it and using my ratty old ones because it's so big and stiff.

These work exactly as they are intended to. You don't have to worry about jamming a cork back in the bottle. Pouring is a little slow, but not a big deal.

Country house, people picked off one by one. Was it the vicar with an old bone to pick, or was it something from the X Files?

2.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy it if you have a grip attachment for your camera!, April 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this along with a Sony Cybershot Camera package, and a grip for the Cybershot camera. It is unfortunate that the product description did not mention that this case will not fit if you use the Sony grip (which permanently applies to the camera.) It's a nice looking case ... much better than the cheap one that came with the camera goodies package.

It is also unfortunate that the staff at Beach Camera who fulfilled this order did not notice the incompatibility with other products purchased in the same order.

I delayed a couple of days too long in returning this item and now I can't get a refund on it it.

1.0 out of 5 stars I am disappointed. My hopes for an easier winter are shattered., November 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have always wanted a snow blower but was not willing to mess with putting gas in it etc. The shovel weighs about six times as much as a normal shovel. We have about three inches of wet sticky snow on the ground. I thought I'd do a pass before more builds up. Well, the Snow Joe could not power through it. It would get some and then a big mound would pile up and I'd have to go back over it several times to get it clear. I just did the pathways around my house. I did not have to lift snow but between carrying the shovel and pushing hard to plow through, I'd say it's just as much work as regular shoveling.

I am adding a further remark: I tried it again on the second round of snow, which was lighter and fluffier. It worked much better. Howevwr, as anyone who lives in a winter climate knows, we don't get to choose what will fall from the sky on any given day.

It gets its one star because it was easy to assemble.
