English
3.9 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Even though life as we know it is soon to change dramatically (will there even be any life left on the planet in 77 days), former police detective Hank Palace is still on the job. This time he's looking for a missing husband. Where did he go, why did he go, who did go with, did h...

review 1: This is a fantastic crime/sci-fi series. Actually its more noir with a bit of a sci-fi twist. But lets not box this story into any kind of genre. Its just a great story. Hank is a policeman. Or at least he was before the world started to fall apart as it waits for a catastrop...
Bedbugs (2011)

review 1: Most suspense-horror novels, particularly those in the "haunted house" genre, portray the protagonist's surroundings as evil. The hero/ine becomes increasingly trapped in a bad place, helpless to get out, spurned by the usual familial sources of love and comfort, and menaced by ...

review 1: Picked this up at an independent bookstore (my kryptonite!) in Bellingham on the recommendation of a staff member. It did not disappoint. The premise is thought-provoking, the writing is taut, and the characters are intriguing and human. Recommended for a quick read. I've alr...

review 1: Estou pelo meio de Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, mas já dá para dar uma opinião geral sobre o livro.Para dizer a verdade, ele não me deu aquele estalo para querer devorá-lo de uma sentada só, como fiz com Pride and Prejudice and Zombies... Eu destaco, talvez, dois ponto...
Una casa perfetta (2012)
language
English

review 1: This is a great poolside/easy horror read, which is exactly where I read it. I enjoyed the storyline and the ending was not a huge letdown as many horror story endings are. In fact it kept me guessing and did not end as I thought it would. The buildup was rather slow however, I d...
Android Karenina (2010)

review 1: 3,5Jamás hubiese imaginado que un clásico fuese adaptado al género de ciencia ficción tanto como lo ha conseguido Ben H. Winters con "Androide Karenina". Atreverse con un re-telling de la literatura rusa conocido como Ana Karenina no es tan sencillo. Escribir un libro no es senci...

review 1: Ehhh. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is MUCH better. This book started off weird, and just got so much weirder. The author's parts didn't really fit into Jane Austen's words that well. But the thing that bothered me most was the historical inaccuracies with the things that were ...

review 1: This series is a good illustration of the low rating of much genera fiction. Just a couple of notes: Guns do not have "handles." Plot has implausible developments that are REALLY obvious. Characters tend to Central Casting predictable types with little depth. The protagonist does...

English

review 1: I read the original and thought it was all right - it was a slog and a half, mainly because of the translation.This corrects all the wrongs of the original and made it infinitely more entertaining for me to read. I fully believe androids can make anything better at this point.I d...

language
English

review 1: We discovered this book after reading its sequel, "The Mystery of the Missing Everything." This one, too, was great fun and a delightful read. Same kind of "Tina Fey / Mean Girls" vibe, but aimed at a middle school / junior high level. Nothing risque or rude. Humorous, with t...
