Brandon Sanderson's White Sand Volume 1
Brandon Sanderson's White Sand Volume 1
by Brandon Sanderson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 28.65
28 used & new from CDN$ 22.15

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting..., July 21 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I think that I am not used to graphic novels or comic book type novels. The pictures are interesting and even well done but it's harder for one's imagination to transport one as generally Brandon Sanderson so usually and ably does.


Swords and Saddles
Swords and Saddles

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but he's done better, July 21 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Swords and Saddles (Paperback)
The stories were interesting, particularly the Swords and Saddles one with the US Calvary troop being transported to an alternate universe with Kansas being in the middle ages. The twist about the calvary troop involved truly going missing and never being found was fascinating. So it was good but not consistently as good as the Black Jack Geary series.

This review is from: Paddington (DVD)
For those who fondly remember Paddington Bear or the quirkiness of English culture, Paddington Bear will be a treat. It's well done and thoroughly enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar but fun, June 7 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While this latest in the long line of Shannara novels is well written, easy to read and enjoyable there is a sense of familiarity, in contrast to creativity, in that the variables in the plot have generally been seen in earlier novels.


Warriors of the Storm (The Last Kingdom Series, Book 9)
Warriors of the Storm (The Last Kingdom Series, Book 9)
by Bernard Cornwell
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 17.93
19 used & new from CDN$ 8.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting, June 7 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sheer excellence. Bernard Cornwell makes history come alive and his key character, Uhtred, is memorable. It is a little known time line in British history (10th century) and the story as to how England became England is presented in a riveting manner through this novel.

Sheer fun.


The Rivers of War
The Rivers of War
by Eric Flint
Edition: Hardcover
29 used & new from CDN$ 1.76

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Historical Insights, May 24 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Rivers of War (Hardcover)
Insightful commentary into the War of 1812 era. One has an empathetic approach particularly to indigenous perspectives but not at the cost of how Americans themselves thought of the issues at the time. Worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fun, May 24 2016

Excellent fun. Riordan at his puckish best. His unique style well suits tackling ancient gods and how they could think about modern situations.

Hell's Foundations Quiver
Hell's Foundations Quiver
by David Weber
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 20.17
45 used & new from CDN$ 8.57

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile but getting on, Nov. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Another worth while installation in this ongoing series with a variety of philosophical and theological overtones which make the read that much more interesting. However, the series has been around for a while and one has the sense of getting too used to it.


Rumpole of the Bailey - Complete Series Megaset

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic., Sept. 8 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Few books or tv series have entered into the lexicon (especially for lawyers) as this series has done. Referring to a wife as "She who must be obeyed" is still something that hits and, for many, resonates.
