2.0 out of 5 stars so much missed potential, March 7 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I hate to write bad reviews... I am sad to say this book failed to deliver a great story. The potential and the idea/plot of this book was a good one but the writing failed to deliver. The writing is choppy at best and difficult to follow. Poor character development, great big gaps in the story... how does Broc escape for example? Very frustrating to read. I kept hoping that it would get better but it never does and then the book is over leaving the reader with more questions then satisfaction after reading an awesome book. I think with more time and better editing this book could have really delivered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Square Astronaut. Round Hole, Jan. 14 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
How does a nine year old Canadian boy, afraid of heights become an Astronaut?
Read this book and find out what it takes to make a square peg fit into a round hole.

Chris Hadfield takes you on a humorous journey on taking those bull's horns and doing what it takes to be something really extraordinary and making your dreams a reality. I think every teenager on the planet should be made to read this book.

Truly inspirational, so many quotes you'll want to highlight and remember. No cliché's, just plain old down to earth this is what you need to do; and a lot of great belly laughs along the way to keep it interesting from cover to cover.

Simply put, READ THIS BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome reading, March 7 2011
This review is from: A Discovery Of Witches (Hardcover)
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. From the very first sentence I found it hard to put down until I was done. It has been described as an adult "Twilight"; and yes there is a romance between an over protective vampire and a stubborn do-things-for herself female lead who also happens to be a witch in denial. But it is also an adventure, and a mystery too with great comedic elements.
There is lots to be found in this book for a wide audience of readers. It is well written and an enjoyable read. Well done Deborah.

I highly recommend it. And can't wait for the sequel to be released. I also think that this will find it's way into theatres one day. It is a wonderful story and would translate well into the big screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved me, Feb. 27 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For five years I tried various approaches for dealing with my, ahem, spirited child. Then I stumbled upon this book and I saw the "light". It ain't perfect, but it is definitly better then it was. This is an invaluable book for all parents not just parents with "difficult" or "challenging" children. This is a must read for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on marriage ever!, Feb. 27 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you are getting married, thinking about getting married, wanting to get married or have been married for 50 years, this book is a must have. Give it as a Bridal Shower or Anniversary Gift.
Mark's approach is humourous (so it keeps the husband's interested) and right between the eyes no nonsense advise is something we can all use and need. A must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doras World Adventure CD, April 16 2007
This review is from: Doras World Adventure! (Audio CD)
This cd is awesome. The music is so good I find myself singing the songs even when my kids are not around. They produced this cd with a full compliment of musicians who are just outstanding. I hope they put out more like this.
