3.0 out of 5 stars where are the pictures, March 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this book because I am fascinated by the Great Lakes and the culture that has grown up around the lakes. I envy Loreen Niewenhuis her freedom of spirit that has allowed her to explore her own interest in the region, but I was disappointed in the book itself. No pictures! How can anyone write a travel book and not include pictures? No day to day map to show her route. No details on where she stayed at night or how she got from one place to another. All the facts and insights that Loreen presented could have been found on Wikipedia without troubling to walk a thousand miles. I am sure there is much more story here than is presented in this book. Congratulations Loreen on completing your journey, but I don't feel as though I went there with you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great new voice in sci fi, July 16, 2013
Joel Kela has made a great beginning with this engrossing novella. He has given us some ingriguing characters and, although he sets his story in a future world we have all seen in other sci fi stories, the reality of the emotions and the depth of the characters sets his story apart from its many predecessors, he gives us life and death, reality of childbirth, and the pain of a failed marriage all set amidst the calamity of a world destroyed. He should feel encouraged to expand this to full length because there is so much more we would like to know. Perhaps we have a new and welcome voice to combine sci fi with a subtle Christianity, Looking forward to hearing more from tjis author

2.0 out of 5 stars A labor of love, October 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
St. Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman was obviously a labor of love by Walter Miller. It is so densely written and so intricately plotted that it should be read with a notebook and pencil in hand along with a map of the the various locations he he describes. Although some of his characters have charm this book is not about charming people; it is about the internal politics and warmongering of a fictional future Catholic church. Although it is set in a post apocolyptic future it might just as well be set in Italy in the middle ages. Nowhere near the originality and tongue in cheeck humor of A Canticle for Leibowitz. I don't usually give up without finishing a book, but finally decided that it wasn't worth staying the course on this one. All brain and no heart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but name dropping, October 17, 2012
Penny Marshall's autobiography was very disapointing. The first few pages sent as a sample were entertaining and if she could have maintained that tone throughout the book, it would have been worth spending the money. Unfortunately Ms Marshall's biography seems to consist of a list of people that she has either slept with, drunk with, or done drugs with and offers very little insight into the creative process, aside from her family connections, that has allowed her to direct some excellent movies. Really, not worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, July 25, 2012
This review is from: Last Romanov (Kindle Edition)
This book is inriguing from the first page to the last. It's not just the search for the last Romanov that intrigues, it is the details about the court of the Romanovs. The author does a great job of bringing the royal family into focus as human beings with all their flaws. The elements of magic are just enough; not overdone but enough to carry the reader into another world where such things might have happened. A good read, and although I was impatient for the outcome, I was sorry to reach the last page.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great gag gift, May 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this product as a gift to give to the cast members of Titantic to All Ships, a courtroom drama. It was a perfect little memento. It is very small which is not immediately clear from the product description but the smallness is part of the cuteness factor. Everyone thought it was fun.
