Was Hard to Get Through
This book was hard for me to get through because of its intensity at moments. I had to put it away for a bit and then returned to it. I'm glad that I returned to it in a way because I both loved and hated the ending. I cried, laughed, cringed, and was repulsed as I read this book. It is not the book for the faint of heart or those who get bored easily since there are some parts that are slow. ...
The Book of Atrus (Myst, Book 1)
Random House Value Publishing
Myst: The Book of Atrus
It really seems only fitting that a video game about books would have a series of books published in its name. For some reason when such books were first coming out I was sort of skeptical about their quality. I truly am glad I overcame this and decided to pick up the Myst books. I was an early enough adopter to be able to get all the hardcover texts and they are all beautifully designed. ...

Doubleday Books for Young Readers

October Sky (The Coalwood Series #1)
Very Good Book
This Book is awesome. It is an inspiring true story of how a young man turned his childhood dream or being involve in space exploration into a reality and the many trials and tribulations he encountered on his journey from rural, poor coal mining region of West Virginia to one of NASA's top rocketry experts. An excellent read for young people and old for it is never to late to follow ones ...

A MUST READ FOR ALL...from author of EXPLOSION IN PARIS...
This book is a heart-wrenching, beautiful example of what God intended love between a husband and wife to be. Michael and Angel. Angel kept running away, feeling unworthy of love, only deserving the so-called love that the world showed her, which was empty and fake. Michael's character shows the reader true unconditional love and endless patience. This is a beautiful, heartwarming, touching ...
The Sunne in Splendour
Sharon Kay Penman
An epic tragedy
For me, this book affirms that history is written by the winners, and may not be necessarily completely accurate. It was in Henry VII's best interest to malign Richard III, and he certainly did an excellent job, considering what we were all taught in school. I appreciate that there are people who care enough to try to set the record straight. The Wars between the Yorks and Lancasters are ...
The Lords of Discipline
RIVETING NARRATION OF THIS AMERICAN CLASSIC
A frequent Audie finalist and Earphones award winner Dan John Miller delivers a riveting narration of the book many have called an American classic. Also a film actor and songwriter Miller gives eloquent voice to protagonist Will McLean who attends the South Carolina Military Institute, which is a fictional military school and said to be inspired by Conroy's personal experiences at The Citadel. ...
The Soulforge (Dragonlance Saga)
Wizards of the Coast
A great insight into Raistlin Majere's past
A wonderful story that will satisfy anyone looking to know the background of "The Sly One". Without ruining the story, or spoiling the plot, this book details Raistlin's youth and Test at the Tower of the Magi. This book reveals as much of Raistlin's sensitive side, as it does his abrasive side. I would recommend reading the Dragonlance Chronicles Trilogy (Dragons of [insert season] ...
The Dark Tower, Books 1-3: The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three, and The Waste Lands
Foaming at the mouth for the next in the series!
This series is outstanding!!!! True King fans love it, and I think it's an interesting change for those who may not care for King's normal "horror" genre. Bits and pieces of this masterpiece are hinted at in many of King's other books,a nice "inside joke" for King's Constant Reader. This series grabbed me and would not let go! I've read them all at least twice and like the header says, I'm ...
Ride the Wind
Lucia St Clair Robson
My 'desert island' book
This book is the one book I would choose for a desert island, or if I could only read one book ever again. It is full of history, love, and adventure. It leaves the reader with a full heart and wanting more. The beauty of it is you can start right at the beginning again and the enjoyment factor would be the same. Lucia St. Clare Robson is a meticulous researcher. She has breathed life in to a ...
The Book of Ti'Ana (Myst, Book 2)
Random House Audio
Another phenomenal background story for Myst
Needless to say after finishing "The Book of Atrus" I had fairly high expectations for this series going forward. At the end of "The Book of Atrus" we think the story is going to continue forward from that point, but there is a major story that has not been told yet. The fall of D'ni. This tale is frequently alluded to in the game and the prior book. In fact most of the prior book is trying ...
Wait Till Helen Comes: A Ghost Story
A Real Thriller!
The book Wait Till Helen Comes has excellent and real characters. Although it has a bittersweet ending you close the book feeling good. At some parts I was completely mesmorized and completely absorbed in this book. I am afraid to say I hate reading but this book was amazing and I could barely put it down. And even at some parts it gave me goose bumps! By the end of the book you have come to know ...
The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the U.S. Navy's Finest Hour

The Brothers K
David James Duncan
Random House Audio
One Of A Kind Novel - involves baseball
Quirky but not too (which is a good thing), unique, complex and entertaining story - had a few dry patches in the end but well worth it. Largely about baseball but not in a way that precludes people who don't like baseball from enjoying the story. On the contrary, you will finally feel part of that crowd. Also involves a degree of non-dogmatic spirituality. The spirituality in some of his other ...
The potential power of writing is fully realized here
My first Vonnegut book shook me firmly and often. Here is the best book I have read so far this year. American Howard W. Campbell Jr. winds up living in Germany in the pre-world war years, due to family circumstances. When war breaks out there, he is an unassuming playwright. He is recruited as an American spy agent, and agrees, without much conviction, to give it a try. He is wildly successful, ...
The Kissing Hand--Large Format
Great children story
I recently purchased this book for my grandson on the recommendation of a friend. I was not familiar with it but it is a beautifully written and illustrated story that teaches a lesson for the young or old. As an elementary teacher for over 30 years this is one of the best stories I have ever come across. I highly recommend this book for any age.
The Ordinary Princess
Doubleday Books for Young Readers
This was my FAVORITE book as a child and I'm thoroughly pleased that I was able to find a new first edition. Shipping was very fast and the book arrived exactly as described. Thank you!
Hodder Children's Books
One of the best children's books ever written. I loved it, and most importantly, my son loved it. It was his absolute favorite from the age of about 1-1/2 - 3 years. Just a great book!

An inspirational book
Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul ll is a great book written by teenagers and some adults about life. It teaches us about life and how to deal with it. It shows us that no matter where you came form, what you look like, or how you act, almost all teenagers are the same. This book is an inspiration to everyone. This book influences me because it inspires me to become a better person. ...
