"Pretty good book! Engrossing horror tale about a madman named Toby Bones and his harrowing encounters with an innocent named Sherry and the people they encounter along the way. Richard Laymon is a great author, any horror or suspense fan will love this one."
"This is the first Anne Rice book I have read, and it was pretty good. It is about the life and struggles and family drama surrounding a young castrati (castrated opera singer) in 18th century Italy. It deals a lot with the music and art of the day and has a lot of descriptive gay sex, so don't order it if that offends you. It is an interesting departure from her usual vampire themed books. Its an easy read, if the subject matter interests you then you will enjoy it."
"Entertaining and funny book women (or men who like books about women) of all ages will enjoy. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says: "A big, blowzy romp through the rainbow eccentricities of 3 generations of crazy bayou debutantes trying to survive marriage, motherhood, and pain, relying always on their love for eachother... A novel of wide reach and lots of colors: fun in a breathless sort of way"
I liked it."
"Tom Perrotta's thirty-ish parents of young children are a varied and surprising bunch. There's Todd, the handsome stay-at-home dad dubbed "The Prom King" by the moms of the playground; Sarah, a lapsed feminist with a bisexual past, who seems to have stumbled into a traditional marriage; Richard, Sarah's husband, who has found himself more and more involved with a fantasy life on the internet than with the flesh and blood in his own house; and Mary Ann, who thinks she has it all figured out, down to scheduling a weekly roll in the hay with her husband, every Tuesday at 9pm.
They all raise their kids in the kind of sleepy American suburb where nothing ever seems to happen-at least until one eventful summer, when a convicted child molester moves back to town, and two restless parents begin an affair that goes further than either of them could have imagined. Unexpectedly suspenseful, but written with all the fluency and dark humor of Perrotta's previous novels, Little Children exposes the adult dramas unfolding amidst the swingsets and slides of an ordinary American playground.
GREAT BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldnt put it down!!!!!!!! youll love it"
"A very funny book by the incredible author of "The Neverending Story". The back of the book says: "Good confronts evil in a comic adventure spiced with rambunctious wordplay and deepened by allusions to the worlds real afflictions. Clever and highly imaginitive"."
This book collects the smartest stings ever to snap from the tip of an English-speaking tongue. You can use this book in a hundred ways. Keep it near at hand. Be ready when the need arises. Shakespeare can lend you the fulsome, dripping line you need.
Includes hundreds of great insults, like:
"I never see thy face but I think upon hell-fire!"
"You crusty botch of nature!"
"You do me most insupportable vexation"
"If I were but two hours younger, I'd beat thee."
"More of your conversation would infect my brain"
"Your face is not worth sunburning!"
"Some strange commotion is in your brain."
"Your horrid image doth unfix my hair!"
And many many more!"
