An Interesting Story with Pretty Artwork The plot of this manga is completely different from most manga. An innocent 14-year-old boy is wrongly found guilty of the mass murder of his friends and thrown into prison. The prison is also a amusement park, where the prisoner’s compete for cp to
Furthers the Story but little else Volume one was great but this one was just okay. I still want to continue with the next volume to see what happens with the plot.
Literary Horror (but not simultaneously) This book was promoted as literary horror. I loved the literary first half of this book but was disappointed with the horror aspect of the remaining portion. It’s hard to say why without being a spoiler so I won’t. However, if I had known what
Great Pictures, Nice Poster and an Informative Read. I read this book to my kindergarten age niece. She enjoyed the pictures and the story but I think this book is meant more for older elementary age children. However, I really enjoyed it myself. Despite taking both Western Civilizations and Art
Interesting Idea. This very short book describes how the author used mirrors on the Mona Lisa to find hidden images. The pictures of the images were in color on my iPhone and I recommend reading this book in color if possible. I’m not sure I agree with some of the
Great fun read! This book reminded me of all the fun I used to have with the Choose Your Own Adventure books. The author obviously also has read a few himself because he knows that everyone tries multiple times to achieve the best ending. He has made it a game
Great Practical Solutions for Fixing Dysfunctional Relationships. A practical guide on how to deal with relationship issues with children through improving communication. This book offers concrete answers including how to respond to petulant or uncommunicative teenagers. The author suggests a balance between the business (teaching and disciplinary) and personal (fun
Simplistic Plot With Absurd Ending I actually looked up the phrase “deus ex machina” to make sure that was the correct term for my issues with this book. The plot is both too simplistic (everyone knows who the criminal is from the beginning) and too unlikely (coincidental meetups abound). It
Literary Fiction Disguised as a Thriller. Stephen King wrote in his latest book, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, that he likes short stories because it prevents him from going off on tangents. Vienna is a book full of tangents on European history and art. While some do relate to the
Good Religious Thrillers. I previously read the first book in this collection separately. I am rating only the second book, Journey, here. I’m taking a break from reading the remaining novels as the plot lines are somewhat repetitive. I am curious what will happen to the main characters so I
Nothing New Here. Absolutely nothing new here for anyone who has read at least a few diet books in the last couple of years. As Dr Phil states we just need to quit looking for a miracle weight loss solution. You can start by not bothering to read this book.
Starts well but disappointing overall. I liked the first quarter of Down the Rabbit Hole, where Holly is first introduced to Playboy life and is trying to get a room in the mansion. However, every decision that Holly makes, from moving to the mansion to dating an “old man” is
Excellent WWII Historical Romance. I really enjoyed this historical romance set during World War II between a first generation Japanese woman and her American boyfriend. It was interesting to learn about the Relocation Centers used solely for people of Japanese descent, regardless of their citizenship status. It is interesting that
Poor mystery but interesting slice of French life. I enjoyed entering the world of a wine expert within France. However, I think there are rules for mysteries that Montmartre Mysteries broke. There was no way for the reader to solve the mystery as crucial information was not given until the
