"Crichton's long lost manuscript finally comes to light and it is more of a historical based adventure rather than a science based thriller. I enjoyed the read, learned a lot about the period and had fun with the action and adventure."
"It is nice to see James Rollins stepping away from Sigma a little bit. I prefer his earlier stand alone books, Sigma Force is still quite good though. This time we get a more focused story with three major encounters that build an interesting plot with lots of action and good characters."
"Takes place after the Gears of War 2 game. Builds more on the character development and again half the book is flash back to the "Hammer Strike" event. The rest of the book deals with the rebuilding of the COG on Sera. Good read with lots of interesting bits of info about the world of GOW."
"The second half of Magician is a good epic story with lots of characters. It was interesting that half of the book did not even focus on the two main characters. It had a great ending and I am looking forward to the next in the series."
"Good build up to a climactic ending. Lots of head scratching moments that become clear at the end. Saw the movie after reading the book. Great adaptation, much of the dialog was taken directly from the book."
"This started out with a number of interesting but seemingly unrelated stories at first. By part two it came together nicely. Even though the premis was a bit far fetched I liked the idea. This turned out to be a pretty good book."
"Good story over all, I did not enjoy the writing style. Took a long time to get to the point or to move the story along. I got the the point to where I was skimming sections just to get it done with. Probably won't read the rest of the series."
"Wintermute's first book, I was not expecting much but wanted to read a MTG book since I enjoy the card game. Many of the characters, areas, creatures, were familiar but the writing did not flow and the story was weak."
"Massive brick of a book. Over 1000 pages but it was such a fast read. Reminds me of the stand in its format and readability. Great story, where we see the primal evil in people come out when they are put in such a dire situation. One of Kings best in recent years."
"Another great addition to the Dresden Files. More of a murder mystery, and not as epic as other entries. But great book with a really cool sequence at the end. We also find out the secret Harry's brother is keeping."
"Not nearly as good as the previous Bell novels which were great. The bad guy was hardly developed and there was a long drawn out scene on the train where Bell is trying to figure out who dun nit with no luck. Vital information just popped up out of no where to push the story along."
"This was interesting mystery, yes mystery. Go to point A to find a clue that leads to point B and find a clue that leads to point C and so on until we get luck and find the end of the trail. The ending was weak and a lot of people died or got hurt for a little closure for Pendergast."
"I liked this addition of Frankenstein much better that the conclusion of the pervious trilogy. With that said, it was entertaining but still not great. Much of it was a rehash of the original books but in a small town setting. I have always liked the witty banter between the two main characters and that continues here, but now they are married."
"These seem to be getting better with each new addition, but still not great. This had a better more interesting story, but the cheap shots I did not like. Something unexplained happens and all they could say is that it is better explained in another book."
"I had a really hard time getting into this for some reason. Maybe it was the random Thai words in the text, or the assumption that we should know something that was never explained. It was also difficult to determine who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. The story shifted focus a lot and was hard to follow. Some parts I really like but in all it was a tough read."
"I enjoyed this. It tells the progression of the first world war from the perspectives of a number of characters that had verious levels of involvment. The individual stories of the characters were just ok, but the over all story was great. Learned a lot and enjoyed the read."
