4.0 out of 5 stars Shipwreck Stone-Historical fiction intertwined with modern mystery, April 27, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you are a fan of multi storylines taking place causing you to turn the page to find out what happens next then I recommend The Orpheus Descent. Author Harper chooses plots and ancient characters that the reader knows in hindsight their fatal adventure awaits them.While re emerging with present day couple-Jonah and Lily search for the meaning of life and these golden tablets from museums around the world and the meanings they hold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooklight & Robotic Zommies, April 27, 2014
This review is from: Robogenesis: A Novel (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Author Wilson spins a post apocalyptic future with a small remaining human fighters from company Gray Horse encountering Big Rob. The machines have learned and evolved causing humans to fight humans by taking over their bodies and leaving them like puppets still but keeping their minds intact. While arguments divide the group whether or not to kill off Lark and his band of ill fated men or bring them home to try to heal them and better understand their enemies. Written from a number of viewpoints the author pushes the reader along for a interesting read.

Welcome to the Third Plate by Dan Barber. Insightful and energetic view of our food chain what it is and what is could be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down, April 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Author Ben Horowitz knows how to tell a story or more like a lot of them. From his early days as a kid to a rising star in Silicon valley. Horowitz was at the right place at the right time. Remember Netscape? Yep he was there. The author shares the highs and lows of start-up companies with a lot of drive with no parental control and it's inviting. Not your cookie cutter approach to managing your fast growing company rather sit back and absorb what he has seen and what the companies did as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kanju, April 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The author informs the reader there are many countries that make up Africa , its not just one and thats the crook of the problem how other nations see Africa. The reader learns despite seeming like a welfare state of mind Africans are thrive with what they have and continue to grow into a large middle class consumers. The author shows many examples of growth from internet tv explosions to demanding youths for more access to more goods and services. African difficulty borns creativity- Kanju.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, April 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you are a fan of the old Food Tv Network shows the author mentions in the book when they actually taught rather than just entertain then you are going to like this book. Heartwarming and funny relationship with the author and her boyfriend always wanting to try something new, sometimes completing others just moving on. That is until they decide to open a pizza restaurant. The frugal steps and follies are abound to make the reader laugh and route for their success.

4.0 out of 5 stars John Largo who?, March 14, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
John Lago paid assassin works for HR inc. Boss is named Bob. Bob tells him this is his last hit, he should do what it takes no matter what to get the job done. The problem John is not given the target, well it's narrow down to the top three at a company he going to be interning at. John likes to give readers rules to follow when taking on a contract. He painfully lists them and then breaks them himself throughout the story.
