1.0 out of 5 stars Bought in on Audible - narration is horrible, October 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am actually reading the book on KIndle now, and I like it a lot. Regrettably, the Audible recording is horrible. The person sounds old and lacks emotion. Her voice just doesn't fit the book. I can recommend the book and author, but not the Audible recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Reacher - not one of the best, September 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have read all of the Reacher books in order. This one was entertaining, but there were a lot of unnecessary references to past events and the ending fell slightly flat. Plus, it was a big predictable. Still, I'm glad a read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly An Excellent Book, March 5, 2013
I really loved "Mr. Panumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore" - a mystery yarn with loopy characters, 500 year old codexes to solve, and lots of technical wizardry thrown in. The writing is crisp and inventive. I look forward to Sloan's next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but.... the plot was highly entertaining, but,, September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 12.21: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
The plot was highly entertaining, but also highly unbelievable. Of course, it was about the Mayan prophecy, so you would have to expect it to be a little unbelievable.


Believe in Me: A Teen Mom's Story
Believe in Me: A Teen Mom's Story
by Judith Dickerman-Nelson
Edition: Paperback
14 used & new from $28.05

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read for teenagers coming into adulthood and their parents, April 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"Believe In Me" is a short book at 209 pages, but it's long in terms of clear messages, heart, and a good story. The book revolves around the unplanned and unwelcome pregnancy of a popular, pretty, and highly intelligent high school girl. Just to add a few complications, she's a cheerleader, she goes to a Catholic school circa 1980, and the father's family is less than supportive. The father has great intentions but is swayed the other way by those around him. In any case, there's a lot to overcome for Judith, and she perseveres through many ups and downs quite purposefully. For teenagers and their parents, this book presents a great opportunity to talk through all of the issues surrounding unprotected pre-marital intercourse. Even though "Believe In Me" is a fictional account, in real life, this story has been played out millions of times over the last ka-billion years. Yet there aren't a lot of great accounts set in the modern world with modern themes. It's usually the young woman that has it the hardest, and that certainly is the case in this book. I can't give this book a five star rating, because I think the plot involving the supporting characters - both familial and friends - could have been built out a little better. Still, it's completely worth the quick read. It gets you thinking about a lot of things for many days afterwards, which is what the best books do. Hats off to Ms. Dickerman-Nelson.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just didn't fit, October 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was excited when the packaged arrived, but the fit wasn't as described given that I had bought similar Dockers products in the past. Very curious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect musical confection for summer, August 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's probably not a song you'll want to hear in September, but it's definitely this summer's "Walking on Sunshine."

2.0 out of 5 stars Same thing over and over, May 4, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Dan Brown just seems to write the same book over-and-over. This book is so similar to "The Da Vinci Code" that it's just deja vu reading it.
