I could not put this book down. I love Stephen kings novels and space adventure which I was surprised to find in this novel but pleasantly so.

It was good to see Gwendy all grown up and doing well. The story was interesting and kept me wanting more. Can‘t wait to read the final book in the series.

I really enjoyed the concept of this book but I felt it was too short to do the story justice. There were also parts of this book that confused me since it seemed like there were some paragraphs that jumped to different scenes. I‘d like to have seen this as a longer horror novel but it was interesting.

I really enjoyed this story although I‘m a bit disappointed in the ending. All in all an interesting read with many twists and turns. It was hard to put down once I got into it.

I love critical role and dungeons and dragons and box machina was my first really enjoyable experience with both. I loved this book and it was like coming home to follow Vax and Vex through an adventure from before they met the others.

I really enjoyed this book. There was such emotion and yet the main character was an artificial being that made no reference to their emotions and in fact seemed like they had none per se. all in all good read although the ending made me a bit unhappy.

A great continuation in the Witcher series. Lots of adventure, battles, death, survival, and creatures abound. I really enjoyed this book and will read the next soon.

This book was very interesting and educational. When I was a kid and had first watched the movie “the mummy” with brendan Frazier I was in love with Egypt and wanted to be an archeological explorer as well. Of course I grew out of that but this book reminded me of the wonder and beauty of ancient Egypt and I‘m so glad it did.

I really enjoy Linwood Barclay‘s books. He writes well and I love the mystery thriller aspect of his chosen genre. Although I figured out the big mystery before the end I still didn‘t see half of the true ending.

Interesting book and will be using concepts from it. She plugs quite a few concepts and research from other works she has published but great use of the research and case studies were interesting.

Literally slow clap 👏 leading into an absolute crescendo of noise. I loved every second of this book and the twisty wavy roads it took me both emotionally and imaginary. That‘s it that‘s all you need to go read this book today

A Promised Land | Barack Obama
post image
Pickpick

I‘m going to start by saying I‘m probably biased since the 2008 election was my very first year that I was able to vote and he is the person I voted for. I believed in his mission and although I‘m not politically active I see now that government and politics is not always the way it seems. All in all I really enjoyed reading this book and will read the next one that comes out as well.

It was interesting to read about this man that I grew up hearing about but that his name seemed to be associated with committing violence instead of peaceful protest. I also never knew about the Muslim movement for the African Americans in that time. All in all interesting and I will be looking for more information about that time

Smrloomis I want to read one that came out recently 1y

The story started off ok but I wasn‘t to fond of some of the concepts found in the book. The friendships seemed more like gaslighting than real friends not to mention the unlawful activities that the book just brushes off. However the writing was beautiful so it does have that going for it.

This book was great. I‘ve been having a rough year and have struggled with depression and thoughts of suicide since I was a teenager and I‘ve been in the process of getting divorced from a person who I‘ve come to realize was never right for me. I‘ve recently started getting help for my depression and reading this book made me realize that I can do anything with my life.

BookwormM Good for you 👍 2y

Interesting stories. Not usually something I enjoy. The stories seemed to cruel for me to understand.
