A friend gave this book to me. She really liked it and thought I would too. Reading the back, I kept putting it off. It really did not sound that interesting to me. I read about 10 pages and put it down again. Then I finally picked it up & read it. I absolutely loved it. There are some hard to believe areas, but over all a brilliant read. Just ordered 1633.
Good book. She was straight forward in her writing. It made me want more information. She does not toot her own horn, which means if you want more information on something she did, you will need other books. Great ending.
I bought all the books in the series (5 at the time of this writing) for 50 cents a piece. I made it to book 2 (this one)before just getting rid of them. Anita.. I mean Merry.. I mean Anita... is there really a difference, because I really do not see one. Doyle/Micah whatever. I loved the first 3 or 5 books of the Anita series and was so hoping that the first of this series would be good as well, before LH trashed it with repeated sex scenes. Which by the way seem to blend together in sameness at times. There are people who read this for the the sex and more power to you, but if you want a story forget about reading any more drop the series.
Repetitious. I can see the fright factor for the time period and the fact that Mr. Poe did not publish them all at once, so it would not of been so repetative for the readers. Put all together in one book, not so much. I had higher hopes going into the book from all the other writers referencing his work. I was let down. For example, I found Mr. McCammon's Usher's Passing more frightful, then Mr. Poe's House of Usher. Sad am I.
3 books in 1. The first was A Wizard of Earthsea and was an okay story. The beginning was great, the end was lacking. The second story The Tombs of Atuan was pretty sweet. It made you forgive the first story. The third one was The Farthest Shore. I really liked this story as well. I am glad all 3 stories were in 1 book, if I had gotten the first story by it self I would of not gone on to the rest.
Bella Swan is one of the most whiny characers that I have had the displeasure to read about. I was hoping for her demise through out the last half of the book. Twilight was good, New Moon was okay, Eclipse was bad... I have the last book in the series and I am really debating if I want to waste any more time on it.
Playful. I am not usually into romance stories. I am as romantic as a wet wash cloth. Yes I am. I've had complaints. So I am reading some romance stories. This one actually had me laughing. Can't knock that.
Very nicely written book. It is quantum entaglement explained so that the average person can understand the subject. Author has good sense of humor and throws in some interesting side notes on different scientists.
I so miss the original Anita Blake... when she actually raised zombies and there was a plot/mystery. Then it became all sex. I like so many characters and lately they haven't even been in the books. In this one some of them came back, not exactly how I wanted them but whatever... it's like a car wreck... you keep buying, looking and hoping that Ms. Hamilton will smack her head up against a wall and come back to good writing.
It was an okay book written by an okay author. Merry is Anita Blake, there is no difference really between the two; They even have the same dialog. The supporting characters are the same but with different names. The only real difference I see is that over sexualization of characters within this series starts right away, where as the Anita Blake series takes awhile. I ejoyed the first 5 or so books in the Anita Blake series, but not the rest. I understand that there are people who like her soft porn, but if you only liked the first batch of books from Anita Blake you will not like this series. Laurell Hamilton needs a new personal fantasy to write about.
The racial, economic and religious changes within the predominantly black city of Detroit, from the point of one resident. Very interesting. I related to the book because I am from the area, but I had no idea that this did not happen in all big cities. Where as people not from the area may find the book even more informative then I did. I do recommend this book.
