Another great book by Glenda Manus . A very heartwarming continuation of a family introduced in the preceeding books by Mrs. Manus. You will never be disappointed in her stories. Warm characters, settings that are real, story lines that hold you spellbound.
What say you fuzzy britches? For their 100th release, Hammer Films remade the 1940 cavemen groaner One Million B.C. It would prove to be a roaring box office success, whilst simultaneously making Raquel Welch an iconic poster girl and Ray Harryhausen an even bigger hero. Plot is slight. Two tribes exist in prehistoric times, the Rock People and the Shell People. The former are more aggressive and basic, the latter more forward and assured. Tumak (John Richardson) of the Rocks and Loana (Welch) wind up together, fighting prejudices and lots of giant beasties! Hooray! That's really it, the message is clear but ultimately we are here for the dinosaurs and giant creatures (well OK, the scantily clad cave dwellers as well), with Harryhausen once again showing why he was a legend in his field of animation. With good fights, a bit of sexy sizzle and a volcanic finale, it's all good really. It's no history lesson of course, but as Harryhausen was wont to say, they wasn't making a film for history professors! 7/10
I used to love this app. Plenty of black and white filters to choose from and each filter is easy to edit. But once I am done with my photo and I want to save to an album, it doesn't. If I choose to share photo, the file becomes unavailable. All edits are lost. What's going on? I have tried several times to delete the app and re install. Photos will not save.
This is a fantastic app for capturing the magic of black and white photos. I love it! The filters are each relevant and different from each other, unlike some apps that have a lot of filters that very similar. The photos I've taken with this have come out so clear and striking, really capturing the essence of this kind of photography. You can even edit them afterwords, as well as being able to edit anything you already have in your gallery. I thought I'd have to download another app to edit black and white, but this does it all in one. You can change filters, contrast, film grain, etc., all after the fact. It can also save a color original, if you so choose. I am very impressed. I tried a few others and compared photo quality, this app was far superior. There is a free version available to try, just missing some of the filters. I tried it first and decided to go pro. Now if only I could solve to constant issue of taking pictures outside in the daylight without being able to see my phone's display! But that's a hardware issue... I do kinda miss the old school cameras with their viewfinders. But this way does get instant results. Anyway, Lol... 5 star app.
This second book in the FBI K-9 series takes serial killer to a whole different level. FBI agent Meg Jennings appears to be targeted by someone wanting her to die -- "over and over again." Women with looks similar to Meg's are being kidnapped and left to be rescued (hopefully before they die) by Meg and the FBI K-9 team. Ms. Driscoll ups the tension as one woman after another is kidnapped. Fast-paced action, detailed description of SAR procedures and a twist on a standard plot trope had me reading as furiously as the action. A light touch of romance added a nice touch without diminishing the seriousness of the story.
What an enjoyable book to read! It has a great plot and plot development, lots of suspense, is part of a series, and has really engaging characters that I'm looking forward to learning more about! If you haven't yet read the first book in the series - Lone Wolf - I highly recommend it as well. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out next year!
Lots of history, but not over done. Really enjoyed this book. If you are a fan of the TV series Criminal minds, you will be entertained by this novel. Any one who is a fan of K9 or animal rescue should enjoy the story. And if you're a civil war buff, you should find this enjoyable as well. Sit back and be entertained.
I liked the story and the author's writing style but he is no Robert Parker! For one thing his characters talk too much, and he uses excessive detailing in his bert Parker had the writing gift of being able to convey the conditions, thoughts and moods of his characters and settings using minimal "verbiage" as the early writers of pulp fiction did. This was a main reason his books were so popular, and have withstood the test of time. Today, Parker's style of writing is unique in that no one, to my knowledge, has yet to duplicate is author is a good one but this story is just not a Spenser story. Robert Parker's Spenser is an intelligent, morally strong, "Robin Hood" type character who talks little but when he does talk says a great deal, in a few words. The Spenser in this novel is a talkative "smart mouth" who seems pretty shallow compared to the original. I don't plan to read another of this author's books.
This is another fine installment in Robert B. Parker's series of Spenser novels. The plot involves a series of arson attacks in Boston and offers a good bit of interesting facts about the workings of the Boston Fire Department. As always, Ace Atkins includes Parker's outstanding cast of characters--Susan Silverman, Hawk, Zebulon Sixkill, Henry Cimolli and others. This would be an excellent beach read. I highly recommend it.
