A Change in Altitude: A Novel
A Change in Altitude: A Novel
Offered by Hachette Book Group
Price: $9.74

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, April 15, 2014
Very abrupt and unsatisfying ending. Did not enjoy the writing style, either. Kept waiting for it to get better, but, alas, no such luck.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money, March 15, 2014
it's cartoony, non-stop shooting (ever need to pause, strategize, pause over fallen comrades?) ... and Jack Kennedy in a Pentagon war room!!?? Gimme a break. You want a realistic game helped-designed by actual special forces men, then do Medal of Honor. It's a super realistic game with an ending that makes you pause. Was it worth it? This game is goose dung for ten year old boys who want to be inside a comic book. If you have past puberty, don't buy this

3.0 out of 5 stars cop out ending, January 13, 2014
Fun read for first 90% of the book but uninspired and very rushed ending left me feeling cheated and underwhelmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Hole fights crime by deduction and living in the gutter with his suspects, November 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
great mystery with a compelling main character... hard-bitten Swedish serial killer detective, Harry Hole. The books are fascinating because of the deep characterizations, the cynical comment on Swedish life--the hedonism, the pagan nature of the people, and how almost everything is borrowed from America. Harry is a stone-cold alcoholic, but he fights the urges. He has more integrity than the rest of the sorry bunch, even though he's a slovenly outsider and barely keeps it together mentally. Great great book(s).


The Federalist Papers [Illustrated]

5.0 out of 5 stars who were they, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
fascinating hearing these brilliant men ... divining human nature, politics and what is possible in so far as republican self government. These are quite readable. I recommend reading these papers, especially Hamilton. For a man so young he had the steel in his spine and the intellect to impress George Washington.

5.0 out of 5 stars miracle powder, July 24, 2012
You're a diabetic and you've gouged a toe... bleeding won't stop. Or, you fall on the concrete or off a bike and you get a big patch of road rage, er, rash on an elbow or knee. This powder is truly amazing. You quickly remove the pressure gauze or whatever you've got pressed against the wound, pour some of this strange looking powder right into the wound, and then you take your fingers and PRESS down onto the wound and the powder. The bleeding stops instantaneously! No joke. You look at it, and you say... I know this is going to keep bleeding, but.... it doesn't.

I mean, this stuff save my wife and I a trip to the ER to staunch the flow. Blood had been oozing out, constantly, and I take blood thinners, so it was a mess. But right on the package it says, can be used for those taking blood thinners!

Get some. You won't be sorry. Whoever invented this stuff should be retired on a beach somewhere, and they absolutely deserve it!

5.0 out of 5 stars just what I needed, July 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am recoop'ing from a broken foot and months of inactivity. I wanted to use my leg extension machine, but my shins we muscle-less. So I thought, what about shin guards-pads! I saw these, and man, are they perfect. They give me just enough padding to make it easy to press the weight, but not too thick. I can't say enough about these, because they helped me return to the world of the living (and the exercising).

3.0 out of 5 stars too deep; too narrow, May 26, 2012
This is a very well made, nice looking box. If you have a slender hand on a grownup forearm, you're good to go. But if you're a man, with a normal hand and a reasonable muscled forearm, getting the little letters out of the bottom of this box is excrutiating.

Just bear that in mind.
