5.0 out of 5 stars Poetically Woven!, June 27, 2007
This review is from: Dead On (Paperback)
Ending Packs A Wallop! This book speaks the unexpected, in poetic form. Meticulously full of deliberation, extensive, yet firmly constructed...the unknown is what keeps this book going, showboating mystery, illusion, alarm, surprisingly sensual, along with splashes of paranormal, while intimately painting the charm of Doylestown, PA. The first murder takes place at Fonthill Castle, which is, most assuredly real & definitely a castle. It was built by Mr. Henry Mercer in 1908. I can visualize a movie, the eerie old castle, the death-driven murder, cleverly slipping in & out each room of Fonthill. Slithering from the tour, without being seen, into a dusk ridden sky. Then, as fate would have it, he lurks, hidden in the trees behind the parking lot, waiting scrupulously to taste the blood of his first victim of this life. Man...if the right producer caught hold of this, using accurate lighting, gaining the quaintness of Doylestown, the movie would be like an anomaly in the rouse of suburbia. A challenge, even for Ron Howard! The psychology of this book is part of Kelly's polished technique, revisiting scenes of each life...each crime. It is... not only interesting, but what lies withering beneath the killer's madness, comes alive in your room. So, get comfortable, prop your feet up, with a nice glass of sherry, but...don't forget...to turn on the lights.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hated the Movie, June 24, 2007
Pan's Labyrith to me was way over rated and I have to ponder what American society deems entertainment and simply shake my head. I'm a movie buff and this is probably the worst and most depressing movie, besides Schindler's List...which was brillantly done, but very depressing...Pan's Labyrith, to me, doesn't even come close...

I don't ever remember being so disappointed in a movie in a long time. They called it a fantasy/fairy tale??? First it was done in Spanish, with English Sub Titles....I was shocked at the content of violence...Sergei Lopez gave a characture portrayal of a psychopath, he was extremely narcissistic lacking a conscience and probably the meanest man I've ever seen portrayed. I saw nothing good about this movie, and question those who would deem this entertainment, other then the special effects. It was to me, brutally violent...dark and disturbing, not to mention, the dubbing distracted from the emotions emitted by the actors. Just didn't see what all the hype was about, especially the reviews...as I said, kinda makes you ponder what American Society deems entertainment today?

Close to Shore: A True Story of Terror in An Age of Innocence
Close to Shore: A True Story of Terror in An Age of Innocence
by Michael Capuzzo
Edition: Hardcover
294 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back In The Water, February 5, 2007
There was so much about this book that I enjoyed. To numerous to mention...but I will say, Mr. Capuzzo certainly interpreted that Nature positively owes us nothing, providing an amazing juxtaposition of those early Victorian Days down at the Jersey Shore, when women were not allowed to show their bodies in public, to a primitive medical knowledge, not to mention... primordial data of the ocean & sharks at that particular time.

This true account chronicle was brought to life, with a brash intrusion to feeling safe and the misunderstanding of the utility of force behind the jaws of sharks and the ability of some of their species to adapt to fresh water. Found this shark to be a decisive strategic eating machine offering no negotiations.

You should read this simply to imagine how things were then, and how far we've come to now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday's Love Is Like Melting Directly Into A Victorian Painting, September 6, 2006
This review is from: Yesterday's Love (Paperback)
Could not put this book down...
to me and for me, very spiritual in a metaphysical sort of way...which seems obviously the backbone of this sensitive and fascinating novel. It's impassioned with a consistent spinning wheel of a lover's mystery...keeping nostalgia alive, content with thoughtful places that you can hear, touch and feel for yourself. Excellent substance...in a relaxed manner, feeding constant messages, essential information, just enough to impatiently turn to the next page....there was no substitute for the peace this book made me feel...so much so, couldn't pick up another book for quite some time, wanted to. I'm a push over for paranormal, and the translations this book sings is simply up close and delicate. I had a good time in this eclectic period of time.

PS This was a five star rating, something went wrong?

2.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Moving, August 30, 2006
This review is from: The Trap (VHS Tape)
This has to be one of my all time favorite classics. For those of you who have never seen, then this is absolutely a must! Not that the acting is the best ever, but because it is a classic...and the acting bears witness to the films unusual content. Well, unusual for me to comprehend as the love story is boarderline eccentric, shadow boxing with reality.

Story content was believable, clarity of color amazed me...one can plug into the scenery, never wanting to return to reality...How did those older movie producers do that?

Keeps your adrenaline flowing, amidst a sweet, adventurous, inspiring, poignant story about tolerance, friendship and yes, eventually trust & love.

Crisp emotions frozen in time...some parts were jaw dropping yet, believable...and trust, I'm not alone in remembering this long ago sundry approach in time, when life seemed far less complicated...in some long forgotten era that seemed almost magic, & far far away...you shouldn't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars "DEAD ON" is A Must Read!, August 8, 2006
This review is from: Dead On (Hardcover)
"Dead On", is an unsullied novel by a new, fresh and spirited, upcoming author who is not afraid to color outside the lines. She articulates so much with so few words, but rolls a story off so effectively, the reader cannot put the book down?

Alida66, what could you be thinking? After a review of a book on sewing ("Oh there's a professional critique"?) Did, perhaps the book insult you in some way? I suggest you stick to sewing critiques...and I'm terribly sorry you missed the entire premise of "DEAD ON"

"Dead On" is not only physically powerful but effectively accomplished & to the point. You cannot stop reading. 196 pages is "not" a large book, (I read it in two days) and the chapters are certainly far from long, but electrifying.

You find yourself emotionally charged, trying to figure out the plot...which adds to the expertise of the writer's ability to pull the reader into a memorizing & poetic playground of the demented killer.

The author's intellectual awareness & integration of personality theories, pulse an emotional & spiritual read, to say the least!

I could identify with the main character and her gained strengths from the vulnerability of her present life's misfortune...I was intrigued by the meat of the story, which takes place a lifetime before, and the ending, hit me like a big fat wallop, never saw it coming! BRAVO!!!

The author's attention to detail froze my eyes to the pages, and found myself silently shaking my head (boy, did she do her homework) this was indeed a powerfully convincing story...for those of you who enjoy murder mysteries, with a touch of the paranormal...this is an engrossing journey that would make any Hollywood producer the hit of tinsel town...if they were able to reproduce the anticipation, the thrill and the surprises that lurk the pages along the way, leaving nothing out.

So, when's the author's next book coming out!
