2.0 out of 5 stars the first book of this trilogy was the best, March 3 2016

where he was actually building up the characters. Though I read other books between, did not forget the characters and they were not that far apart from each other between book 1, 2 and 3 - but by the last one, he kept repeating things from the prior 2 books (as a reminder in case we forgot?). I felt as is he was not writing anything new in the last one, just putting in excerpts and reminders from the first two books.
I typically like his writing overall with the exception of a couple, albeit in some of his early books he used the word Although at least once a page, if not more.
I did have to put the book down it was so repetitious, and have not had the want to get back to it to find out what happened to the characters

This review is from: Big Fish Bilingual (DVD)
so purchased it here when price was a little lower, though still not a bad price. Was expecting more from this movie with the cast and storyline. Not the worst I've ever seen, but average, a little different than what I'm used to. would have rather borrowed it, since it is not something I would watch again. I had borrowed This is Where I leave you with Justin Bateman and liked it so much to purchase for my own colection. I would not put this as high a rating as that movie, this being average in my opinion compaired to the other

5.0 out of 5 stars right when I needed a role model growing up ..., Feb. 14 2016
This review is from: Maude: The Complete Series (DVD)
And then there's Maude. Outspoken, Opinionated, LIberated (if only the women and girls of this new millenium were half as strong as this character). God bless Norman Lear for starting this character, airing her right where it would be perfect on All in the Family, and selecting the perfect person to play the role: Beatrice Arthur. This character was the one who taught me that it is okay to stand up for yourself, speak up and be heard. Finally it has come out on DVD and will eventually make it's way into my library

The Warrior's Princess
The Warrior's Princess
Offered by HarperCollins Publishers CA
Price: CDN$ 11.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Her books are good overall, but not her finest, Feb. 14 2016
I usually enjoy her books since it usually focuses on a spiritual side rather than religious and her key characters are women. Many times they also tend to go between realms. This one the lead female character is not very strong and looks to a man for support and is a little sappier than her usual fare. I understand that there are many woman who tend to seek out the "strong stereotype" male and many men who seek out a flower and lace and mousy type of woman. I do prefer reading stories where the lead woman stands on her own two feet - even if she needs support from friends and family. I tend to enjoy Barbara Wood novels much more because the key character is usually a strong woman, as well as her writing tends to draw me into the whole book and characters. With Barbara Wood I tend to feel that I am actually "in" the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick , light and easy read, Feb. 9 2016

His style of writing is fast paced, does not dwell on one subject or scene for pages at a time (which some authors do) He gives enough of a picture of the person then moves on to the next scene, by the end his books sometimes I wish he would put in a few more words into it, they are that addictive. His characters can be nasty, you love to hate them and are glad of the twist of fate that ends up for some... Had I started reading his books sooner, I may not have been able to take other authors seriously
