    5-0 out of 5 stars My Review of Artemis Fowl The Lost Colony
    I think Artemis Fowl The Lost Colony is a great book.As with all Artemis Fowl book's it was suspenseful, "filled to brim with action", and always kept reader guessing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best One Yet
    This is the best one in the seris yet! Mr. Colfer has struck again with another enhancing novel under the Artemis Fowl seris.

    4-0 out of 5 stars ...
    I steamrolled through the first four books in the Artemis Fowl series this past spring and found them genuinely delightful. Unlike some other reviewers I think that this book is best when read in the context of the series, and not as a standalone.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Im a bird
    Im a bird.Eldest was a really good book, but the 1st book, Eragon, was much better.Eldest had a lot less action, and it took too much time talking about Eragons studies, and less about anything else about the Varden or Dwarves.The side story about Roran, Eragons cousin, was more exciting.As it got further towards the end, it was much more interesting and had more action, and was easier to read.the end of the book made me want to read the 3rd book because it left many things unanswered, like who the third dragon egg will hatch for.It was an overall great book, but not enough action in it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Yawn, Yawn, Yawn.....
    Well, I picked up Eragon because I heard it was pretty good. I was in the need of an original book, so I figured I would give it a try. It turned out ok. I was impressed with the age of the author, but was also dissapointed on how much of his ideas were not original. Still, there was something fun about a jedi dragon rider.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Creative and inspiring
    I was partly prejudiced when I first picked up Eragon, having read about the authors age of only 15 when he wrote the book. I expected something much more amature than what I read.I was amazed how he spun such a wonderful tale, so wonderfully descriptive, exciting, and created an endearing main character that had many flaws, and LOTS of room to grow.Paolini has a lot of natural talent and has only begun to explore his potential.I hope he will continue writing long after this trilogy is over.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Dear God or Stephenie Meyer, please, please, please, let the third book be better than the second.
    Ok, I adore Edward, and I love the way the Stephenie Meyer wrote the first book, but Bella is so slow on the upstake in New Moon. I know that both plots are predictable, but Ms. Meyer writes in such a way that that's usually ok because it answers the reader's prayers(like, "please let him struggle with his love for her some more," etc.) but in the second book, Bella's slowness takes away from that connection to her readers. And I honestly spent most of the book missing Edward. When he finally came back, the lack of drama and closure was rather anticlimactic - I just thought that Edward was more complex than that. Oh well, I hope the third is better.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed.
    I can honestly say Twilight was the most splendid book I have ever read. I loved everything about it, especially the intense love between Edward and Bella. I fell in love with this book so much that I couldn't stop talking about it with my friends for a while. I was looking forward to New Moon, and I ended up finishing the book in a day. I was extremely disappointed with a lot of things that happened in the novel.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My all time FAVORITE book!!
    I have to say, Stephenie Meyer has created the most unique, fantastic and romantic world I have ever read about. I read Twilight and New Moon within three days, because when you read these books, you want to know what will happen next. Bella and Edward are adorable together, and the plot line is wonderful. The only complaint I have is the amount of time it takes for the next book to be released. This is the best book ever, even if Edward is only in it a little. For those romantic fans out there, the time he spends in this book is some of the best chapters! I HIGHLY reccomend this series! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A prett decent Pratchett effort
    Terry Pratchett has been a bit hit amd miss for me of late, but I do always enjoy the Tiffany adventures. This is definitely one of his best efforts of recent times. It's better than A Hat Full Of Sky (which I did like) but not as enjoyable as some of his darker efforts. This is an easy read full of Pratchett's trademark wit. I preferred Thud in terms of story and tone, but for an easy read Wintersmith can't be faulted. It's not too heavy going and will probably go down as the wittiest fantasy read of 2006 along with The Book With No Name. There's nothing particularly straying away from the tried and tested formula, but if you know what you like about Pratchett, then you should already know if you're gonna like this.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Crivens! Another one!
    I love the Tiffanny Aching Adventures, so I was really glad when my brother gave me Wintersmith for my birthday. Now would probably be a good time to tell you that I am writing this on my father's account. My name is Charlotte Moore and I think that Terry Pratchett is a genius. I have read his equally good books A Hat Full of Sky, The Wee Free Men, and The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents.
    5-0 out of 5 stars More Than a Boffo Book
    It's hard to understand how he does it, but with each book he writes Terry Pratchett out does himself. Each book is even better than the last. And this is certainly the best book of the Tiffany Aching series.

    this book falls under my favorites!In the beginning of he book the demonic Opal Koboi reluctantley plans her revenge to kill Captain Holly Short and Artemis Fowl.While Opal Koboi is plotting in her fake coma, she secretley breaks out and is finally ready to kill Holly and Artemis.This book was absolutely phenominal!!the plot stuck right on a trail but ended completely unpredictable.the character were very believeable except for most of the mystical creatures, but you could feel their emotions.this book in my opinion ranks right up nest to Harry Potter, Eoin Colfer did an excellent job!!

    this books chapter titles were random as hell and so was the book. its so weird.there is no plot whatsoever. i hated it, don't buy it cuz it sucks major balls.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For ESL students
    I teach a beginner writing course for ESL students preparing for college, and we use this book to help students develop that all-important voice. The stories are simple but full of feeling, and resonate deeply with my mostly Latino students. Yes, there are incomplete sentences and words that don't belong in academic writing, but I find my students understand the concept of personal vs. academic writing, and can enjoy the book on its own terms. In addition, it could easily form the basis of a reading course for students once they are beyond the very early stages of learning English. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Everyone in town thinks Meg Murry is volatile and dull-witted, and that her younger brother, Charles Wallace, is dumb. People are also saying that their physicist father has run off and left their brilliant scientist mother.Spurred on by these rumors and an unearthly stranger, the tesseract-touting Mrs Whatsit, Meg and Charles Wallace and their new friend Calvin O'Keefe embark on a perilous quest through space to find their father. In doing so, they must travel behind the shadow of an evil power that is darkening the cosmos, one planet at a time. This is no superhero tale, nor is it science fiction, although it shares elements of both. The travelers must rely on their individual and collective strengths, delving deep within themselves to find answers.Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable by young and old alike!
    The earth is surrounded by a sinister presence - a dark, foul fog that is the tool of an ultimate evil - whose ambition is to enslave the planet with the complete removal of free will. Three magical beings, Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who and Mrs Which - witches, angels, demigods perhaps - appear to Margaret and Charles Wallace Murry and their friend, Calvin O'Keefe, to persuade them that it is their destiny to battle this evil on its own turf and to rescue Margaret and Charles Wallace's father. Dr Murry has been missing for some months and the kids learn that he has been captured by the evil while he was "tessering", traveling time and space in the course of his scientific research.

    Editorial Review

    "Monster" is what the prosecutor called 16-year-old Steve Harmon for his supposed role in the fatal shooting of a convenience-store owner. But was Steve really the lookout who gave the "all clear" to the murderer, or was he just in the wrong place at the wrong time? In this innovative novel by Walter Dean Myers, the reader becomes both juror and witness during the trial of Steve's life. To calm his nerves as he sits in the courtroom, aspiring filmmaker Steve chronicles the proceedings in movie script format.Interspersed throughout his screenplay are journal writings that provide insight into Steve's life before the murder and his feelings about being held in prison during the trial. "They take away your shoelaces and your belt so you can't kill yourself no matter how bad it is. I guess making you live is part of the punishment."Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Monster is scary, not in a great way
    I found that the story was too fast paced for something as dramatic as a 16 year old boy on trial for murder.The settings changed too quickly at the beginning, and I found the plot kind of confusing.The plot though, was believable and realistic, and there was very little profanity, if any.The language was not coated with heavy accents, the closest it got was gangsta talk. The point of view was from Steve Harmon, and there was a fair share of the plot jumping around. The characters were very real, and you could really picture it in your mind.Sadly, I could not say this for much of this book.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Is He Truly A Monster?
    I'm not going to say much about the text in the book except that it was well written and well thought out. The format of the book was nicely put, because it is easy to read when the words aren't crammed together on a small page, and I liked how it was written in a script format.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazon book review by Karen
    Monster by Walter Dean Myers was an excellent book.This book was about Steve Harmon.He was accused of being part of a robbery during which Mr. Nesbit was murdered.The book really puts the reader inside Steve's mind and emotions; the reader really hopes that Steve gets off trial and is let go without any charges.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Distinguished Mystery Book(siobhan fitzgerald, age 11)
    Flush is a mystery book that I would highly recomend for younge readers. Dusty Muleman, is the criminal who is supposidley dumping sewage into the many waters of Thunder Beach to save money. This book also includes fantastic thrills to were Abbey and Noah Underwood come into close incounters of being caught while full filling thier full proof plan. They also have a couple of former crew members to help them capture the crook and save the beach for both wildlife, and themselves.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hiaasen is fun and fast!
    Flush takes place in Florida. Noah Underwood, the main character, is trying to catch Dusty in the act of dumping his casino boat's waste in the water. HIs father knows that Dusty is doing this, so he sunk the boat. Pane Underwood (Noah's father) goes to jail for sinking the boat. This book is hysterical, a must-read, can't-put-down!

    Editorial Review

    According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for "social") has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he's always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers--until one terrible night when his friend Johnnykills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels thesame whether a soc or a greaser. This classic, written by S. E. Hinton when she was 16 years old, is as profound today as it was when it was first published in 1967. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars my inspiration...
    When I had to read THE OUTSIDERS in seventh grade, at first I was just like whatever because I thought it was going to be another boring book we had to read and why can't we ever get good books to read? But from the first chapter, that was it. I fell so hard I still haven't gotten up.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Battle Against The Socs - A Review By Izzy, age 11
    A boy named Ponyboy, and his two brothers, Sodapop and Derry, turn into hoodlums when their parents die in a car crash. They join a group of hoods: Johnny, 2-Bit, Steve and Dally. They are in a battle against the Socs, who are spoiled and very rich. The Socs always jump the hoods (Greasers) when they are alone. They all have parts to play: Dally is the tough guy, 2-Bit is known for his switchblade, Steve is known to mess around a lot, Sodapop comforts people, Johnny is the pet of the gang, and Ponyboy is the youngest at the age of fourteen. There are two other gangs of greasers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Books I have Ever Read!!
    This book is one of the most interesting books I have ever read. Every page that I read drew me in deeper to want to know what happens next. But if you haven't read the first book, well, you just have to. They are both amazing books and if you are an avid reader this is the right book for you. Because I know I am an avid reader and it was the best book of my life! So if you haven't read it, read it. Because It is so interesting that you won't stop thinking about it until you finish it. I know I am only 11 years old, but this book is really good. Whether you are 13 yrs old or 56 yrs old, it's the book for you!

    This is a spectacular ending to a fabulous trilogy. The plot and characters provoke questions on the importance of friendship and physical power. Tally Youngblood has undergone her second operation: she is now a fierce looking special who keeps Uglyville and New Pretty Town in line. What she used to call bubbly is now icy, and she is endowed with lighting-fast reflexes and superhuman strength. Tally soon discovers that the lesion curing pills have gone in to mass production, and are being handed out all over the city. Her special circumstances operation makes her believe that this is horrible, and that it is something to stop. On a trip back from crashing a pill-distributing party in Uglyville, she forces Shay to take her to Zane, who she has not entirely forgotten. They see that he is now cured, though he still feels the aftereffects of their pill-taking mishap, and that the Crims are now up to more serious tricks than crossing the borders on hoverboards. When he and some others of their old clique go on a journey to the New Smoke, Tally tracks behind them and in doing so disobeys orders from Shay. When she gets to The New Smoke, after a long time of struggling to understand how the Crims' minds are working, she gets a big surprise. During her time there she takes some heart-crushing blows, and learns in the end that specials really can cry. This is a remarkable book that leaves you to contemplate Tally's character and her strength- mentally and physically. It has a great ending, with an unexpected story twist that leaves you wondering whether she will ever live happily ever after. Read this if at all possible, and the other two in this trilogy along with it!

    Author Wilson Rawls spent his boyhood much like the character of this book, Billy Colman, roaming the Ozarks of northeastern Oklahoma with his bluetick hound. A straightforward, shoot-from-the-hip storyteller with a searingly honest voice, Rawls is well-loved for this powerful 1961 classic and the award-winning novel Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ulises Cruz Review
    I really liked the book and it is a very fun interesting book to read. I really liked that it had to do with some sort of sport. I also liked it because it was book were there was all source of action. There was a little boy that lived in the hills and dream of having two coon hounds. He finally worked and saved enough money to buy himself two. He was so excited to get them that he trained them to hunt. The characters were very believable and never doubted that they were making them up. The plot was very interesting because it was about the kid entering a big coon hunt. He won the competition by treeing four coons with his dogs. The major themes of the story were when on of the Prichard brothers accidentally stabbed himself. The author used a very special way of imagery. He made everything be visual in my head. I was all into the story that I didn't want to stop reading. I didn't like by were sometimes they didn't talk about when the dogs killed the coons and how they treed them. They would sometimes leave you think what would happen next or what could of happen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Geez!
    I adore this book. I wrote a reviw on what I think of it a while ago, so you could find it later. But I'm sick of all these people saing there was no action or adventure. What's up with that? And to the people who say there are lost of grammer mistakes in the book, you should check your grammer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars a spectacular book

    5-0 out of 5 stars Inkspell.....
    This book was on my bookshelf in a less than a week after I read Inkheart.I really enjoyed it and could not put it down. Cornelia Funke used very good detail and surprised me very much as well.I never would have suspected some of the things that happened but I must admit that I expected some things that did not happen.I cannot say that one book was better than the other but I can say that it is a must read for all ages!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids
    Cornelia Funke follows up her fantastic adventure, Inkheart, with a more in depth and more mature sequel.Younger kids can still appreciate the excitement and the magic, but a young adult or even adult reader can find enjoyment between the pages.The character development delves even deeper in this book.Inkheart explored what would happen if you could make your favorite characters real.Inkspell asks: What do you do after ten years away?Can you ever go back to an old life? And finally: can you choose who you love?
    5-0 out of 5 stars What I think about Inkspell
    I like Inkspell and Inkheart very much and I am hoping for the next book. My dad and I are thinking that it will probably start out with the word Ink (although he has not read it yet).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it!
    After reading the Midnighters trilogy I wanted to read more by Scott Westerfeld.Uglies was a great book.It takes place in the future.They try to prevent destruction like the people before them called "rusties" by making everyone beautiful when they turn 16.The rusties are basically us now, as I see it.All of Tally's friends have turned pretty, and she can't wait until it's her turn.All was going well until her new friend Shay runs away to a place called The Smoke to avoid being turned pretty.Tally thinks nothing of it, after all it was Shay's choice, until she is forced by Special Circumstances to find Shay and destroy The Smoke in order to be turned pretty.
    5-0 out of 5 stars great book
    I am not going to summarize it, but Uglies was a great book. It reminded me a little of extreme cosmetic surgery people do to themselves. It also shows that you can be beautiful without surgery and makeup and stuff, and about how some people are too appalled by the "ugliness" of a person and can't see a nice human being standing three feet away. This was a great book, but I think it is more suitable for kids around 13-14.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It may be called ugly, but it certainly is not.
    Ugliesby Scott Westerfield is a great book filled with it's fair share of obstacles, misunderstandings, and plenty of close calls. This story is about a young girl named Tally Youngblood who can't wait to turn pretty. Tally lives in a very condensed and small town filled with tall buildings side by side everywhere. With tons of out-of-this-world gadgets the people living in Pretty Town and Uglyville are living a dream, or so they think. In Uglyville (where Tally lives) when an 'ugly' turns sixteen they get a surgery that transforms into a drop-dead gorgeous 'pretty'. 'Pretties' have big bright eyes, symmetrical faces, and perfectly proportioned bodies, far more stunning than any ugly like Tally. But her new friend Shay questions this system, and forces Tally to look at her perfect world in a whole new way.

    i really adored this book and the 3rd book is taking much to long to come out! I have heard that Mel Gibson recently picked up these books as a screen play. He is making a movie out of this! I for one, cannot wait to here more about it, but since the third isnt out yet, ill have to wait even longer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars one in a million
    one of the best follow up books ever written.Lies, secrets, and friendship what else could you have in a story like this. The story will keep you dancing on your toes all the way through the book. If you have read the first book A Great and Terrible Beauty you will know that this book will be as good as the first.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Sequel
    Sequels are tricky and they're famous for not living up to an original- either the writer will try to rehash what was successful in the original, in which case the result is too often boring a second time around; or she'll attempt to take thestory into a different place and risks not being true to the initial characters and situations. Libba Bray does both- she brings her story forward while remaining true to what made the first novel good.

    Both "The Sea of Monsters" as well as the first book in the series, "The Lightning Thief" were fantastic books that my eleven-year old son could not put down.He tends to be very critical about books but this series is a new favorite.He is recommending these books to friends and is looking forward to Riordan's next edition. "The Sea of Monsters" has also peaked his interest in mythology. I recommend you try this series if you want to inspire your child's interest in reading.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the gods must be crazy...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ!!!RIORDAN DOES IT AGAIN!!!
    I bought Lightning Thief on a whim from a school book fair (I have always been a mythology lover so it looked intriguing). What an understatement!!!I started to read this book and couldn't put it down.It left me wanting more and voila... Sea of Monsters was available.I got the book immediately and read it just as fast as the first.I keep checking online, waiting for the next book.
