Next- A Vision Of A Terrifying Tomorrow

Next By Michael Crichton

Overall Rating: Dull start, but adds up to a terrifying tomorrow

So to all of our knowledge this is the last published book written by Michael Crichton. His last novel was one that was different than all of the rest. With every book he wrote something involving a scifi issue. But this was something that he never attempted before. He wrote about a terrifying future of science if it is not controlled in this book NeXt.

So it’s hard to explain what…

Seeing Redd: The Return To Wonderland Should Have Been More Epic Than This

Seeing Redd: Looking Glass Wars

Overall Rating: Surely didn’t live up to the originals like I hoped it would.

Okay new and unusual fantasies are hard to come by. There was the Golden Compass in 1995. There was Harry Potter around 2000. And this is the new competitor. In 2007 a book came out called the Looking Glass Wars and this is it’s follow up.

Part 2 is called Seeing Redd referring to the return of Redd Heart who was thrown into the heart crystal at the end of part…

Bloody Bones- A oddball in the Anita Blake series

Bloody Bones- A oddball in the Anita Blake series

Okay if you don’t know what the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series is, then your one of these three. 1) You have been living under a rock. 2) Completely naive about it because you’re a new reader to new age realm. Of 3) Your one of those guys who never read. I hope I didn’t offend anyone here, I am a fan of Anita Blake and this is the review of the Laurell K. Hamilton’s Bloody Bones.

The Anita Blake Vampire Hunter books are a…

Elixer – Is the book over yet?

Elixer by Davis Bunn

Overall rating: Is it over yet?

This book is just one of those books that you grab off of the discount shelf at a store. You read the back and words like “A reluctant man must uncover a conspiracy of pharmaceutical company before they kill him.’ It has the image of test tube on the cover and image of man on the run. So why not? I like a espionage novel every once and I’ll give it a try.

The story is about this man named Taylor. He’s in one of the…

Warrior Angel: A great modern fairy tale, that’s easy to get into.

Warrior Angel By Liz and Margarette Weis

Rating : A great modern fairy tale, that’s easy to get into.

Okay we all see these books all the time in the stores. They are romance novels that have a tint of supernatural or fantasy to them. There has been at least a thousand of them in existence ranging from Twilight to Hunter’s Moon to Stardust. As with the ones just mention, they were about love stories between humans, vampires, were wolves and fallen stars. (just in case you…

The Bourne Legacy- Out With The Old, In with The Awesome

The Bourne Legacy- Out With The Old, In with The Awesome

Rating: This book was a hell of a lot of fun

Do you remember all those Ludlum novels that were fantastic. The ones that kept you on the edge of your seat and were written intelligently that you weren’t exactly having a brain drain while reading He wrote the Bourne trilogy (that were adapted into movies) and sadly died in 2001. Then some one, this Eric Van Lustador had the gull to buy the rights to Ludlum’s masterpieces…

The Road Virus Heads North : A Good Quick Read, If You Like Horror

Stephen King’s The Road Virus Heads North

Overall Rating: Good, quick read, if you like horror

I have pretty stated in my earlier hubs that I’m not that much of a horror fan. But will always give it a shot. This time, it’s The Road Virus Heads North by Stephen King.

The Road Virus Heads North is not truly a novel and is only a short story about fifty pages long. It can be found online and is in his short stored collections, I found it in everything’s Eventual.

The story…

WARNING THIS REVIEW DOES CONTAIN A COUPLE SMALL SPOILERS. THEY ARE MARKED OFF RIGHT BEFORE AND AFTER THE SPOILER BY ***spoiler***………………….

Rating: Totally worth the read……………………..

Strait out. I’m not a big horror geek when it comes to novels. Simply because books just don’t scare me and for some reason authors like Stephen King or Dean Koontz often tine s bore me. I just kind of feel silly and when are trying to be creepy and just…

Looking Glass Wars: Alice The Way You Never Seen Her Before……………………………..

Overall book rating: Awesome…………………………………

Okay, any one who has every visited my website, read my blogs, hubs, or just simply asked me about fantasy books, I always go on this rant of how they are all the same. They are all Lord of The Rings knock offs and Harry otter is too over rated, and how the Golden Compass is the only book that offered world we have never seen before. Well I’ll save you that rant.…

"Keep Your Head To The Sky"

The emotional content churning through my veins has its origins in the simple yet profound sound of music. The beating of congas in The South Bronx on Summer nights, gave way to the glorious gospel melody floating from neighborhood churches where Sunday mornings sat enthroned. The progression from Doo Wop on street corners to the "Inner Visions" of Stevie Wonder had me looking towards heaven waiting for the perfect beat with the perfect lyrics. I fell in love with love songs, and young girls… Continue
