This is just not a good book. It is billed as a memoir of a single handed race and it was at the 80% point in the book when he finally crossed the starting line. Inexcusable. The rest? Endless trivia about learning to sail on a sailing dinghy and sailing on the 30' boat he wound up using in the race, which he ridiculously refers to as a "yacht". None of the characters in the book were adequately described, including several women who came and went, pretty much at his beck and call. Maybe they were sisters or cousins since not a hint of physical contact or romance was ever mentioned. Fortunately his works of fiction are good. We should all hope he sticks to that.
To much old jokes and common ones that aren't as funny anymore
I'm 16 and I fell in love with book so fast. I also hate reading but there was something about this book and i finished it in about 3 days. A great story that always has you on you toes.
I bought this book because this diet worked for a friend. I've done elimination diets before, the first under a doctor's care, so I know they can be helpful. In preparation to start it, I bought a thermometer, scale, blender, supplements, and the food for the first four days. The breakfast on day one blew my belly up like a stability ball. I looked up the flax cereal and found that I had eaten four times the recommended serving size and had therefore overloaded on fiber. I looked up the kelp supplement and found out it can be dangerous. So I wasted a lot of money. This is a scam.
Plagiarized, and non factual
This is an awesome novel. If you have no idea how it was way back when, you sure as hell will when you read this. It is the first book that shows the true wonder of growing up in the 1950's and 60's. They should make this into a movie.
I've read this book (and the other two) three times over the years, and the trilogy never fails to entertain and enlighten. My only regret is that, after reading the epilogue, I never had the honor and unique experience of meeting John Ringo's mom.
If you love Nelson DeMille's detective series on John Corey, you will fall in love with a Dick Wolf's, Jeremy Fisk. Story takes place in NYC and includes the terrorism that continually plaques New Yorkers. The story has many well-known streets, restaurants and hotels which make the fiction feel more like non-fiction. It makes you wonder just how close is it to being true. "The Intercept" is definitely a page turner. I am so happy there are two more books that have the main character in them. I am hoping Mr. Wolf will write many more in this great series.

Action packed with a kick of romance. You won't get bored that's for sure. I loved it.
By far one of the best HH books I've ever read and is now my new favorite. The War in the Webway has always been the battle I've been most interested in and this book fleshes it out very well. There is more dialogue from the Emperor and more OP Custodes action in this book than all of the other books combined. There's a chapter or two that slowed it down a bit as they focused on the Mechanicum forces, but after that it speeds right back up. Definitely worth it.
Rosaria takes the bloody joy of Christ to new places in this book. I am shocked, mesmerized, and challenged by the saving grace of Jesus Christ proven true and real through the life of Rosaria Butterfield.
Sweet, funny, romantic & heartfelt. What woman wouldn't want a guy like Ian!
Georgette Heyer creates complex, believable characters. Even the evil Duke somehow wins a little sympathy, and insurmountable problems are resolved.
Pretty good, not fantastic. I was curious about y everyone loves the tv show so much. I'm not sure I want to get into the show though
Looking forward the sequel
I almost choked and died in the course of reading the letters in this book. That is because I was laughing extremely hard while enjoying a Piet Doke at the same time as reading this book. So, as a general health policy I hope they add a surgeon general's warning to the front cover. Besides that, it is quite brilliant. That is all.
This is my second time reading this series and im a young one (not really) so i can wait for cast in godfire spoiler alert for first time readers seth comes back
Stoker has written a novel that recalls the selflessness and regard with which men and women in Victorian England related to each another. Dracula is evil because he denies women the lofty, and rightful, place they occupy in their relationships with men. He lowers them into the earth, transformed from all that is good, into something evil. Men are willing to sacrifice themselves for the women in their lives without hesitation. Clearly, much has changed! A wonderful novel.
Story about a burned out PI who takes time off to buy a former beach property and re-acquaints himself with a childhood friend, now all grown up, and in all the right places too. Its shock and love at first sight! A wonderful story by Bella Andre. As usual!
This is really informative and interesting to read but it's expensive
Well written and worth the read. One you won't mind reading more than once. Recommended.
I was hooked the entire time I was reading this book most nights I stayed up until 2-3:30 in the morning to finish the chapter and find out what's going to happen to Ame. Amazing book would recommend for all young adult readers and adult readers alike.
Cute but sophomoric.
Hey My name is Renaldo D, I've been living for Jesus Christ for 15 years. Ten years ago I walked into a friends store and he asked me if I wanted a bible. The bible was new in a blue box that said Thomas Nelson NKJ study bible. That was ten years ago, I've never see a book or bible so complete in my like. The expiations of word an meaning, charts, culture, foot note and most of all the pointing and high lighting of grace thought out the notes. This bible was given to me by The Lord Himself. Amen
Great read. But social media is hard to keep up with and much of this book is already irrelevant to someone who keeps up with everything social media related. If you need to catch up, this book is for you!
Once again Ms Jordan book is amazing. Full of hope and fantasy. Transports me to a world of fantasy where I imagine and feel every thing the girl is going through. The sex of course is fantastic. He is adorable and good looking. But, at the end you find they are just humans. Love it!
The beginning 100 pages of the book were a boring blur to me, the writing seemed like it was a young writer, writing her first high school love story. As the book continued, I felt more of a connection with the characters, anticipating their intimacy and future. There were several parts in the book that I had hoped were dragged longer, like the hospital chapter. And then there were chapters I wished she condensed to be shorter, the in between chapters (while Taryn's subconscious was fighting with her heart about being in love with a movie star) All around, the book is well written, the story line is fun and unexpected. This isn't a book with high passion and intimacy but instead a story of how two polar opposites fell in love.
Unfortunately most of the book is full of names of researchers and to a lesser extent, terms coined in the field of cryptozoology. Very few actual pages contain any information on cryptids.
It teaches you kind respect ✊ you have to love ❤️ if not you will have problems
I can imagine that I would have loved this book in middle school- that appears to be the target audience. Zero depth and character development, a weak plot and terrible ending.
