Dragon Wing: The Death Gate Cycle, Volume 1 by Margaret Weis
4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Fantasy, Oct. 1 2002
Known mostly for their "Dragonlance" novels, Maragaret Weis and Tracy Hickman write an original and fun novel outside of that series here. "Dragon Wing" is the first book of "The Death Gate Cycle," a series of seven books. In this novel the authors open up the whole series, introduce the world, and some characters very precisely.

This book centers on Murdo, the main protagonist, and how he is involved with the events of his… Read more

The Green Mile by Stephen King
5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, Sept. 24 2002
King here delivers a masterpiece. "The Green Mile" is a work of genius that not many authors could have pulled off as well as Stephen King. This amazing novel was originally published as a serial novel in six parts a few years back. The book flows wonderfully even though with the start of a new part King may review the last scene of the last book that was read. I would think that reading each part of the book together as the one whole novel that it is would make the book more enjoyable, so for people who have read this book when it was first being published in parts, you may want to re-read this book to get a better feel for what King is writing.
The novel takes place on the E Block… Read more
