It could have something to do with the golden retriever who helps with the solving of more than one mystery or the bourbon drinking elderly best friend, but I really think it has more to do with the combination of a weaving of amazing story telling, amazing plot, and amazing 'characters'! Thank you Mr Houston once again for another lovely read. I wait somewhat patiently for the next book in this series.
I accidentally read the latest book first, in this case, I never realized it however, as the book kept my attention throughout.A man and his dog are in Southern Missouri on a case. His friend, Bonnie's sister, Margot has hired him to search her husband's late great, amazing grandfather's civil battle relics. Jake finds the grave website of the plundered battle hero, however, he also finds a newly dug grave, as he falls in...This mystery is full of suspects and unusual situations that Jake and Fred (the dog,) search themselves in.
Houston's books are light-hearted but include some serious mystery plots. I love how the animals are so loved but at the same time support solve crimes. Interesting characters, will our character finally search love? Is he really moving?
Richard Houston never disappoints. I love the characters and their interations. I'm not typically a mystery person, but I've come to like the characters so much, that I search myself reading the stories just so I can spend time with the people. And let's not forget the dog! How can you not love Fred? If you wish to be entertained and have fun funny, realistic, and engaging characters, Mr. Houston's books will surely bring a smile to your face.
Loved the mystery and the interaction between the characters. The incident with the truckload of chickens was exciting. The solution to the murders wasn’t totally expected. It was almost as if the book ended too soon. A very enjoyable book!
I like the the books to die series for because they are a bit various from the some of the mysteries I read. They have amazing characters and interesting plots. I will continue nude to read all the fresh books in this series.
Honestly, this is a really poor app. Not only does the chat freeze and lag but the fact that there's no method of getting only English speaking people is beautiful annoying. There's so much spam on there too. It's needs to be split up. Maybe have the option of globe room. Be able to pick the country you wish to talk in. It's really quite bad. But hey, the guy created some coin off a gimmick. Too poor it's a poorly created one that charges.
Can't exit and re enter the application without making a fresh user name each time which is annoying, and it should separate people by language and maybe down even further to forcing just a handful of people into a single chat room at anyone time because there are wayyyy too a lot of comments at once. It's a neat idea and well worth the dollar for the laughs but yeah hope they evolve upon it instead of leaving it as is and shutting it down in a few months when no one's using it any more.
I don't wish to waste my latest battery with people who don't even speak my language so can like add something where we could talk to people who only speak English and it's very laggy and and a lot of the time I have to reset the application because it freezes
Such an awesome idea. Nothing like enjoying the laggy latest 5% of my tablet's battery than talking to other people who are also about to die. I hope this application catches on and because a trend (please create it free soon so that it will catch on faster!) because it would be nice to have a lot of people at a time. I love the idea, and I will be keeping this app!
This is a fun app, but I think it would support to have a conversation subject on the top. I understand that this is a small antithetical to the purpose of freeing people from digital influence, but I think it would support people focus discussions on subjects other than their battery.
I will be there in a few mins and too much to do and I will obtain back to you soon I will be there in a few mins to talk to you about it when I obtain home and allow me know know if you need anything else from me please allow me know if you need anything else from me please allow me know if you need to come to the office and have a amazing day and I will be there at the same time I will be there at the same time I will be there at the same time I will be there at the same time to meet up for a drink or
Amazing read for young adults. A lot of young adult books are very engaging for older readers, as well. This was truly aimed at the young male reader, which is fine. It has a lot of history to teach while not being 'teachy'. It had an interesting plot that was built on the mystery of run away slaves who were killed on the property while escaping through the Underground Railroad. I'm donating the book to the school library where I'm sure it will search its target audience a lot of times over.
It's been a long time since I've read The House of Dies Drear, but I am again teaching seventh-grade literature, and the book is one of our "outside" selections. I have fun the book because Virginia Hamilton does such a amazing job of giving us a glimpse of those who created history, those who love that history and work to preserve it, and those who only wish to expoit it. While I understand that the House of Dies Drear is fictitious, I wonder (each time I read the story) how a lot of real stories contributed to its creation. Besides all of that, my seventh-graders loved the book. There is a unbelievable balance of history and drama!
I read this book in the third grade, and now my kids are reading it for the summer. I loved this book! It taught me how to use my imagination. My kids are able to picture the stage because of the vivid descriptions by Virginia Hamilton. Amazing book for all ages.
This was the assigned summer reading for my 8th grade grandson. He was mildly interested at the outset but he really stayed tuned as I read. There is enough mystery to hold a young reader with dyslexia attentive and involved. Well written! I am his assigned reader as he is an auditory learner. This was a amazing experiecne for both of us!
My grandson had issues reading so when I found this tape I bought it .He didn't listen to it so I place it on in the vehicle and enjoyed the story. Not a lot of people use cassette tapes any more so I don't imagine there will be a huge demand, but I enjoyed it.
I thought it was great. Very colourful and well-drawn characters. It took me a while to figure out who the main characters really were, but that was part of the charm of this story. I wish to read more about this family.
**This is one of the definitive 80s Action Films.** There is no nonsense whatsoever, the plot moves along with such a pace that the viewer is not disturbed by implausabilities. Bruce Willis plays the likeable "regular guy", who is forced bare-foot into unleashing mayhem and destruction, to perfection. His brilliant opposite is Alan Rickman, playing the German villain Hans Gruber in such a method that you almost root for him to obtain away with his heist. Also, he thankfully dispatches the office sleazeball, Ellis, in a unbelievable scene. The poor guys in Die Hard are more likeable than their counterparts in other movies. They are allowed to be funny and charming, which is amazing because we as viewers spend a lot of time with them, so it's amazing that they are not complete douchebags. John McLane gets to do what a lot of adolescent boys wanted to try: to drop something off the ledge of a skyscraper or down an elevator shaft, and see what happens. But he uses an office chair armed with a PC monitor and a block of C4 and watches as it drops, then explodes, wiping out an entire floor! Everything here is bigger and louder than other Action films from it's time. McLane drops poor guys and one-liners left and right, things and people explode, culminating in a grand finale that is as well paced and executed as any action sequence that came after it. This movie started it's own sub-genre, after it came not only it's own sequels, but a load of movies that were described as "Die hard on a..." or "Die Hard in a..." Most prominent examples were perhaps "**Speed**" and "**Under Siege**". This is entertaining as hell, it's a must-watch!
Just watched this inexplicably for the first time, after having seen and adoring its first two sequels. As a teenager when [email protected]#$%! theatres, I never really felt the urge or inclination to see this at the time. Action movies weren't huge for me back then. Now as a father of a teenager myself, it's interesting seeing what's now considered 'a classic' for the first time. This easily deserves its lofty status as one of the finest action films ever made, especially of the 80's. Alan Rickman, now deceased, played with distinction one of the finest cinematic villains ever. This film--closely followed by 'Pulp Fiction'--is the most necessary work Bruce Willis ever made. I enthusiastically hope that should someday Willis either leave this plain or decide not to create any more DH movies that they simply place the franchise to rest. He was born to play this character. Anyone else in his shoes could never fit the iconic bill.
A intelligent film powered by David Bennent's performance Oskar is a young man in Globe Battle II Germany who refuses to grow up when he was three years old. He deliberately allow himself fall on a stair to injure himself and stop his growth. Oskar's refusal to grow and release his tin drum is an obvious metaphor about refusing the Nazi regime. This is created more obvious since he finally decided to grow and allow go of his drum after the Nazi's defeat. The Tin Drum is based on a celebrated novel by German author Gunter Grass. Director Volker Schlöndorff brings it to life with profound elegance and intellectual humor. Created in 1979, in the middle of the German movie renaissance, The Tin Drum pokes fun at the Nazi regime and at the same time presents an unforgettable and often hilarious story. The film begins in the late 19th century when Oskar's grandmother helps his grandfather to escape German soldiers by letting him hide under her skirt. It is also where Oskar's mother Agnes (Angela Winkler) is conceived. Agnes grows up during the First Globe Battle and marries a man named Alfred Matzerath (Mario Adorf). She begins to have an affair with her cousin Jan Bronski, while Oskar slowly becomes aware of their relationship. David Bennent's performance as Oskar is simply amazing. He was about 12 years old at the time, and he plays Oskar from childhood to his 20s. Although Oskar's physical appearance never changes. We can see his aging process through Bennent's performance. Oskar's movement changes; he begins to become more mature and explore the globe around him. Bennent plays the hero with an impressive level of believability and intellectual maturity. The Tin Drum reminded me of one of my favorite movies-Forrest Gump. Both films have central characters that are physically and mentally disabled, and both manage to have an interesting journey life. Both films pass through an necessary historical event, with both heroes getting involved. The Tin Drum is not quite in the same league as Forrest Gump, but it still amazed and captivated me from beginning to end. The Tin Drum includes some really grotesque scenes. One stage in particular is when they present a fisherman using a dead horse's head as bait for eels. The fisherman removes the eels one by one from the horse's head, while Agnes vomits in disgust. To balance it out, the film also includes moments of pure joy. I love the sequence where Oskar's drumming influences a band to change their melody form a German march to Strauss' The Blue Danube. A Nazi officer screams in disgust, while the crowd joins together and dances. I have fun watching smart satires. I laughed out loud a lot of times in this film and I relished its lush story. The film deals with a lot of things, including warfare, adultery, and religion. It may be a small too long for some people at 140 minutes, but for me, no amazing film is too long. The Tin Drum includes astonishing photos powered by remarkable acting.
An perfect read. An oddball setting where Harvey Mapes, a security guard at a residential complex who was hired by a wealthy man to follow his wife and report back. Mapes admittedly knows nothing about being a personal eye except what he sees on television. Hilarious in a lot of parts, dead-serious in others. One of the best books I've read in a long time.
Lee Goldberg's tale of an everyman turned reluctant personal eye is a wry and ofttimes funny look at what turns Mr. Average into, well, a hero. The protagonist, a slacker security guard at a condo complex, half-stumbles, half-rushes into a swirl of happenings that take him out of his depth and to the edge of danger. Along the way, he learns to believe in himself, and, more importantly, convinces the woman whose love he wants to believe in him as well. Amazing action, funny dialogue, and wry sarcasm, with some amazing surprises along the way.
Harvey was a security guard at an upscale housing complex when a resident asked him to follow his wife. Why not, Harvey always read mysteries. Small did he know it would lead him into the dark side of life, including his ybe a small raw at times but amazing story and very engaging writing and characters. Goldberg always does a amazing job!!
At first you wonder if the whole thing is a spoof of hardboiled detective stories, but eventually you realize that you are enjoying the tale and can't place it down. A gate-guard security guy is hired by a wealthy resident to follow his wife. The investigation by this rank amateur takes you locations you Would never suspect.
