"This book is a little different than most books I have read. I began the book, first by starting at page 1, then reading each subsequent page. DO NOT ATTEMPT to read this book that way.
After about 40 pages, I decided to begin "thumbing" through the book and reading information on motorcycles that I would really "Like to Ride" and could afford to ride.
My rating is low, not because it isn't an interesting book, but because most of the motorcycles in this book will NEVER be riden by people like me (lower middle class, average motorcycle rider).
At least half of the motorcycles in this book CANNOT be riden by anyone, either because they are museum pieces, no longer exist or are extremely expensive (rare collectables).
A better title of the book might have been "365 Extraordinary Motorcycles". But then again, if it were titled as that perhaps I would not have purchased it or read it anyway."
"A very suspenseful read. Jodi Compton's first novel. It was well written, kept me on the edge throughout the book and she wrapped up the final part of the book in a manner that would suggest another novel to follow at a later date. I'm looking forward to her next work of art."
"A great read for any adolescent child (perhaps ages 8 to 15) but an adult will enjoy it as well.
Don't do as I did. I read the third Theodore Boone Book before reading this one (this is the second Theodore Boone Book).
Read them in sequence."
"If you are a motorcycle rider and you plan to take some adventurious rides, this could be your guidebook. The book is filled with hundreds of destinations that any motorcyclist would love to visit. I enjoyed thumbing through the pages, but was never able to take advantage of any of the destinations. My loss can be your gain. Take a chance and perhaps your adventures will materialize better than mine did."
"A good read. Unfortunately, some of the parts of this book are in her first book as well.
A lot to people don't appreciate her ideologic view points and perhaps she is. But i enjoyed this book anyway."
"An exceptional read.
Chris' experiences during his childhood and later on (after High School) not only formed his persona, but those experiences helped to mold him for the life of a Navy Seal Sniper.
What I didn't like about this book is all the information in the first three chapters (it was boring) however this information did set the tone for his experiences in the field, as a sniper.
There were several parts of the book that helped the reader in understanding of Chris' life. His wife, Taya, adds her thoughts during critical phases of Chris' experiences with the Navy Seals and she also speaks of the way he dealt with the preessures (self imposed as they were) of being a Navy Seal Sniper.
Both Chris and Taya are painfully honest in their comments in this book.
Unfortunately we will never read another book written by Chris and his passing will leave a big hole in America's life.
Four stars is my rating, only because of the first three chapters, which I thought were boring."
"The author began writing and researching this book in an effort to prove the innocence of Mary Surratt, what she found, through her research, changed her opinion. The book is written as a chronicle of the events leading up to the assassination, the manhunt for John Wilkes Booth, then finally the trial of all the accomplices. It continues to outline the verdict and the sentencing of the accomplices. I, like are most people, was unaware that so many people were involved in Lincoln's assassination."
"Not an easy read. If you decide to read this book, make sure you can accomplish it without interruptions. I read better than half of the book and it took me almost 3 weeks. This book is not for the faint of heart, as it is graphic in places. Not exactly based on what we know of history of wars over the years. Basically a service member's perspective on their experience IN war."
"I have read several of Glenn Beck's book and I an always entertained. In the writting of this book the research is very obvious. The information is presented in an orderly, logical manner and although it is historical in nature, it is very entertaining in context.
I started reading it and I could not put it down. Over a period of three days I read the entire book. I enjoyed the "Cast of characters" and the "Timeline" at the end of the book. Glenn has also added selected quotes and writtings directly from George Washington himself."
"I really liked this book. Although not a typical John Grisham book, it provided plenty of suspense and entertainment.
John Grisham has experience as a prior QB on a HS football team and writes from those experiences. The perspective he provides gave plenty of references into the High School football persona.
Many of us misunderstand the revalance that HS football has provided to the typical adult in today's world.
Although I will have to admit that many readers will not appreciate this book (because it is not a typical John Grisham book) the contents within provide us with a notalgisic reference in which to relate.
If you haven't read it you may want to give it a try. I did laugh and cry throughout the book. It really bourght back many memories of my High School Days for me.
Actually, order my book and I'll send it to you."
"Very interesting read. This book provides insight into the war on terror in Iraq and Afganistan, from the soldier's, spouse's, and other individual's involved with the day to day operations during war."
"A very entertaining read. Nina (a person who thinks she can save the world, one person at a time) is contacted by an old friend (Karin) and asked to pick up a package at the train station.
The surprise (as indicated by the title) is that the package (a suitcase) has a three year old boy "stuffed" in it.
The mystery takes many twists and turns and eventually leads Nina to unravel many interesting facts. However, when Karin is found dead, Nina begins to believe that she may be in over her head.
The story takes many paths and is anything but predictable. Towards the end the book is very difficult to put down. It kept me in suspense the entire time. The ending was NOT what I expected and although I know the ending, I will re-read this book some time in the future."
"Glenn Beck and Kevin Balfe have conducted very extensive research to present factual and historical information to allow us to evaluate, How and why this country was started (and why), presenting several historical turning points (that they felt were significant to the current situation) and providing their unbiased opinion on steps to take to help bring us back from the brink of a national disaster of spending.
Glenn and Kedvin have written, basically, a text book, chocked full of information, charts graphs, historical information. This allows us to read, evaluate and analyze the information to come to our own conclusion(s) on the current state of affairs.
I find it difficult to watch Gleen Beck on TV, because I get a little upset and some of the informaiton he presents on his show and its difficult to walk away from the television while he's on. However, the book allows me the opportunity to read, evaluate and absorb the information and I can walk away from the book (temporarilly) and return right back to the same spot where I left off.
Its important to read and evaluate all options to allow us to make our own decisions. Glenn give us this opportunity."
"I was less enthusized by this book than I had anticipated. Although it mentions "Christmas" a little, I did not get that comfortable, cozzy Christmasy feeling from reading this book. However, it is sad in parts and bears a very strong message on living your life in the present and not expecting to live out your plans in the future. A good read."
"I am not what I would call a big reader of books. But this book was easy to read. Although the author says it is NOT an autobiography, I do believe there is a sheed of truth within the lines of the book. The main character, I believe, is baased on the author's life experiences. This book is best read around the holiday season, but would be a good read at anytime."
"Very interesting read. A novice could learn a lot from this book, an experienced rider could pick up a few things as well. There are a few errors (in my opinion) that are perhaps addressed in the books updated version. If you're interested in learning to ride this book could make for a nice beginning."
"I was surprisingly happy with this book. I expected a lot of ranting about what is going on in our country, pertaining to the "Culture War", but I did not anticipate the amount of detail and research behind Bill's writing.
At points in the book, I would get frustrated, because I knew what Bill was stating to be the truth, you can see it happening before your very eyes, the dismantling of our society and the principles our nation was founded upon.
Its opened my eyes to the various groups who would allow our status in the world to be degraded to a subserviant level to other countries.
If you are proud of American and what our forefathers envisioned for the future of our country, then you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this book and read it."
