4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Just Beautiful Drawings from the Best, Feb. 11 2003
I love Final Fantasy!! I have been a die hard fan since part one was released in 1990. There are several books out that show the visual effects from the Final Fantasy series, but this one is by far the best. It is strait forward, art, from the original designer of FF characters, Yoshitaka Amano. Page for page you will see the steps that he followed making this characters shine.
The main reason that I took one star away was because most of the art in this book is finished up designs from Amano. I am a very big fan of his work, ex. Vampire Hunter D, FF1-6,and 9 adn several other Japaneese work. I enjoy his early sketches better, they are much more fantasy like. But that does not mean that this collection is not beautiful as printed.
This is a beautiful editon to any Final Fantasy collecton or just plain art or drawings collection. Dont pass this up.

Sojourn: The Dark Elf Trilogy, Book Three
Sojourn: The Dark Elf Trilogy, Book Three
by R.A. Salvatore
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
65 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars The first days of Drizzt on the Surface... WONDERFUL., Feb. 10 2003
This is part three of the Dark Elf Trillogy and by far the best book of the three part series.
In "Sojourn" Drizzt finally steps foot on the surface world to live. The story tells of Drizzt meeting a blind Ranger that changes his life and turns the unlikely Dark Elf into a Ranger himself.
Also, this is the book where we meet the beloved Brunor Battlehammer and his orphan daughter of 7 years old (and the girl to this day we wonder if Drizzt loves) CattiBre.
This is the best book in the Trillogy. Wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meet the Hunter, Feb. 10 2003
"Exile" takes place a few years after "Homeland". Drizzt has escaped the terrible world of the Dark Elves to find a life of his own.
He is trapped in the endless tunnels of the Underdark, where you Hunt, or be hunted. This terrible world has made Drizzt into what Salvatore calls "The Hunter".
It is in "Exile" that we meet a much different Drizzt. One that is vicious and takes no mercy. That is until he meets some unlikely friends.
This is a great book, but more of just a small tie together book for the first and third great installments of the trillogy. Not as good as the others.

Homeland
Homeland

5.0 out of 5 stars Meet Drizzt for the first time in the land where he was born, Feb. 10 2003
This review is from: Homeland (Mass Market Paperback)
Homeland is the first part of R.A. Salvatore's second trillogy starring the loved Dark elf Drizzt. The Dark Elf Trillogy takes place before the Icewind Dale Trillogy and tells of the beginnings of the Dark Elf. His evil family, and the one man (or elf) that changed his life forever.
This is the story that introduces us to the evil ways and lives of the Dark Elves, and how even the most evil can spawn something very different than they wanted. That thing is Drizzt Do'Urden.
We follow drizzt from before his birth up until about the age of 20 (which is about 5 years old in human years). If you love the Dark Elf as thousands of others do, but want to know more about his life before the surface, you will find it in Homeland.
5 stars. The book is awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars Medieval Literature at its best, Feb. 10 2003
I was told to read this book by my College Western Civ. teacher, and im glad I did.
It took me a little while to get into the poem writing of the book, but I ended up loving it and couldnt put it down. The battles were graphic and very detailed and you get very drawn into them, feeling as if you are on the battlefield yourself.
Whether you read it for school or because you are interested in the period. I think you will enjoy it as I did.

The Terminal Man
The Terminal Man
by Michael Crichton
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
66 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun, fast read, Feb. 10 2003
We follow the character of Harry Benson in "The Terminal Man". Harry has a medical problem where he blacks out and turns violent. To help him, Doctors decided to put a computer in his brain to send soothing waves to him to help him settle. But what happens when he learns to control the computer?
This is Michael Crichtons second book under his real name. It is pretty short, I read it in one afternoon and it was able to keep me reading.
I found that the ending was a bit lame, but other than that, I wanted to know what happened next and then more, throughout the book. It is a fun read that will keep you company on a boring day of snow or rain.
I gave the book three stars mainly because of its length and the ending. I thought Crichton could do a bit better.
