    The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust, Volume 1) review [Book]  2017-10-21 18:0

    The Book of Dust, Phillip Pullman's "equal" (both before and after His Dark Materials) is a delight--a wonderfully welcome return to the familiar but strangely various parallel globe of Lyra Bellacqua, Lord Asriel and the chilling Mrs Coulter. Like our own planet, theirs is beset by ecological catastrophe--not heating up but dripping wet as they suffer deluge after deluge. As with global warming, nobody believes a catastrophe is nigh (except the water-wise Gyptians) until it strikes. Apparently, when Reason meets Superstition the latter will victory no matter where in the Multiverse you reside. The forces of conservatism are stirring and the iniquitous Magisterium is ascendant. Baby Lyra is prophesied by witches to be of vital importance to the future. Needless to say, she is a person of interest to both the forces of Reason and the author's previous work, La Belle Sauvage is unapologetically political and unabashedly Liberal. There is, for example, The League of Alexander, a club of adolescent religious snitches who squeal on their families' or friends' slightest misdeed (the League's eponymous character turned his family in for execution). They're small angels compared to the positively terrifying Sisters of Obedience who are running what is essentially a kid abuse and slavery racket. Some people of faith escape his scorn but not many. To those who complain Pullman is anti-Religion I say "you're definitely on to something." If it bothers you, don't read him. In addition to Organized Evil (religion), there is just plain wickedness, personified in the wonderfully smarmy and grotesque hero of Gerard Bonneville complete with a leg-gnawing hyena daemon. A former professor and full-time pervert they share some of the creepiest and therefore most gripping Belle Sauvage starts off rather slowly introducing fresh characters, providing backstory to the main character, Malcolm Polstead and his coterie of mates and newly created enemies. Malcolm reminds one of the adage "still waters run deep" and like Lyra and Will Parry he is young enough to be naive but a bit reckless in his bravery; not classically educated but instinctively intelligent, and always curious. He and his daemon Asta (who hasn't settled into a single form yet) make a hero whose depth and humanity is surprising in one so young but entirely believable. He and his motley crew--the scholar Hannah Relf, Gyptian Coram von Texel and Alice the kitchen maid are a formidable force for Good. Their first priority is to save Lyra from the clutches of the Church and her vicious mother. When the flood hits, the action rises with the waters. La Belle Sauvage kicks into a higher why not 5 Stars? Frankly, The first book lacks the poetry of His Dark Materials, a brilliant riff on Milton's Paradise Lost. There are no gay angels falling in love, Serafina Pekkalas bashing about on a broom, Subtle Knives, peculiar Texans or talking polar bears with a drinking issue dressed in armor. La Belle Sauvage is very Sauvage but not so Belle. Compared to the first trilogy The Book of Dust seemed prosaic. In fact, Malcolm resembles Will a bit too much; one could swap out Coram for John Faa. The Book of Dust feels comfortable rather than electric. That's not to say it isn't entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. It is, however a bit of disappointment. I was hoping for more spark and inventiveness, not the occasional shiver. However, I am very glad the author has revisited his finest creation. I will be waiting in line, eager to read books 2 and 3. So too should you.

    The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust, Volume 1) review [Book]  2017-10-21 18:0

    I’m already 97 pages in (chapter 7) and I’m thrilled to be drawn back into Lyra’s Globe of Daemons and the mysterious Dust. I have fun the back story, building of the characters and draw of immersing into a unbelievable fantasy globe of thrills and mystery and action! I recommend it for the adventure alone and can’t wait for the other books to follow! Trying so hard to pace myself LOL!! I might have to reread the golden compass, amber spyglass and subtle knife again!! Thank you Mr. Pullman for sharing your brilliance by creating a fascinating story!!

    So, upon receiving this comic book my 7 yr old and I begin it up all excited to read a Minecraft comic book...only to see that the illustrations aren't even close to looking like Minecraft. Also, some of the text is blurry, like the printing was done poorly.

    my 7 year old son wanted a comic book and is into Minecraft, so I purchased this for him. He LOVES it. The colors are vibrant, and it's a lot sturdier than most comic books which I love. I highly recommend this for anyone into comics and Minecraft!

    Bought the book for a 5 year old, he knew the names of the creatures and so on... but the story line was very simplistic and did not really follow the minecraft game. I would not recommend the book for a minecraft fan.

    Children's book: " The Warm-Hearted Snowman " : Christmas story books for children about Generosity and Giving! (Children's bedtime story picture book Book 1) review [Book]  2017-11-28 18:1

    People should know that grabbing a book by this author for the kids in their lives is always a magical adventure. The author tells a story of Christmas magic and love with a bit of mystery thrown in. When kids read this book or have it read to them their eyes will light up with delight as they see the snowman and his predicament caused by a rabbit who has issues of his own. The story will touch hearts of all ages with a amazing story and fun illustrations. I have never read a book by Sigal Adler that wasn't loved by all. This is a writer who knows how to touch kids and hold them reading, What a amazing gift.

    The Warm-Hearted SnowmanB0779Q6DRZSigal AdlerThis children’s book is beautifully illustrated in the spirit of the season, with rolling hills of snow, sparking snowflakes and glittering lights, reflecting the photos conjured by the writing:In one little village all glowing with lightA very grand snowman stood guard day and rrounded by cute kids who fit a carrot nose in the middle of its face, the snowman feels deserted when the they must leave for the night:But when nighttime fell, the snowman would groanFor the kids must leave, and he’d be all aloneWe can all learn from this snowman, from his spirit of giving: When he spots a hungry bunny, he offers his nose to him…Five stars.

    To the person who gave this book a one star review, please can I suggest that you take it up with Amazon if your down load failed? It's not the fault of the author or the book if that happened so a one star review is wholly inappropriate. This is such a attractive book for Kids that captures the Christmas spirit perfectly. Superbly illustrated, it tells the story of a friendly snowman and his improbable friendship with a young rabbit, lost and chop off from his family in the depths of winter. It's told in easy rhyming style and is really a very touching story that illustrates the real meaning of Christmas and of friendship. An simple five stars for this one that my three year old Granddaughter loved.

    Christmas has always been amazing time for books, with so much time to read.We like to sit by the fire while it snows and read these kind of stories to the autiful illustrations, and it has a festive atmosphere. The story is about a charming snowman who teaches us about friendship, helping and giving others . My grandchildren liked the story very much and were excited. Warm recommendation for the whole family

    This book is so sweet, I loved it! I can't wait to buy it so I can read it to my little nieces and nephews at our Christmas gathering this year. It also has a very amazing lesson about giving, sharing in it. I look forward to reading more from Sigal Adler. Thank you for taking the time to write this book and others. You are truly blessed.

    Heart-warming story cute rhyming story book, well written and amazing notice for kids. We all love it. “I beg you, please,” the little bunny pleaded, “But listen, your carrot – well, it’s truly needed!” His parents had gotten lost deep in the snow, And now here on Christmas he had nowhere to go.”***

    Minecraft Books: Diary of a Minecraft Zombie Book 1: A Scare of a Dare (An Unofficial Minecraft Book) review [Book]  2018-5-28 18:0

    There is a reason why this is the number one best seller in Amazon children's Minecraft books, and I'm here to tell you why! Obviously the premise of the story is based on the Wimpy Child series, so you're basically getting a point-of-view story in diary form. The chapters are broken down into days and are short and simple to read. They're told from Zombie's point of view, who is middle school aged and introduces us to all of his mates (who are also Mobs like him). You'll meet Skelly, Creepy, and Zombie's whole family (even his small ankle biting brother). There are small black and white pictures scattered throughout, so it breaks up the story and makes it more entertaining for the reader. Zombie is a very likable character, not scary or frightening at all. There is nothing gory (but some gross mentions of boogers and such). Zombie tells about his everyday life as a Mob and about his human friend, Steve. You might search some typos throughout the book, but nothing poor (that's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5). My son is 6 and could probably read these on his own (he's a powerful reader) but he preferred having it read aloud to him. And I must say, I enjoyed reading it, too! There were some cute and funny parts that created me chuckle out loud (you will especially appreciate it if you are an adult Minecraft fan). I particularly appreciated that the author kept the storyline light and funny, and that almost all ages could appreciate it. Some of the other Minecraft fiction out there is not geared toward the younger crowd, but this one, in my opinion, is safe for everyone. I also have to add that we were given a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for a fair review, but I went ahead and purchased another copy for myself as well as book 4 in the series for my son - we loved it that much! Definitely worth reading, and it's a amazing price, you can't beat it.

    I bought this for my 9yr old son because I wish him to obtain into reading books and since he loves minecraft I said hey let's give it a try. Well, he loves it!!! I was searching for a book that would hold him entertained and this book delivers that. I read a couple of reviews and one mother said that the book was kind of funny and was making her son laugh so I wanted to see if it was really true and it was. I caught my son laughing at times and he also came to me a couple of times to tell me about what was event in the story. I asked him if he liked it and he said yes (he also noticed that there are more of its kind, in other words, mommy obtain more!) The book is no that huge and the story is actually 77 pages long but I think it's worth it!

    I'm a retired English teacher with a reverence for Newbery and Caldecott books, so when my 7 yr. old grandson's minecraft obsession led us to the "Diary of a Minecraft Zombie" series, I was less than excited. Still, I know the connection between autonomy and love of reading, so we gave Book 1 a try. Lesson learned? Don't be a snob! He's now reading Book 7 to me (20 mins a day), and I have developed a true affection for Zack Zombie and his group of misfit friends. Best of all, interwoven with the humorous schoolkid angst are heartfelt lessons about acceptance, compassion and sacrifice. These morals are, thankfully, the effect of hero development and not tacked on schmaltz. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to search a better role model in a book written for this reading level. Zack Zombie, you're a amazing guy to hang with!

    My son was happy to keep this book from Santa this year. He loves everything Minecraft, and this didn't disappoint. From the moment he saw it was written by Herobrine, he was smitten, and hasn't place it down. He loves that the zombie talks in a familiar, relatable voice for a child. It created him giggle out loud a few times. If your kid loves Minecraft and enjoys reading, this is definitely a fun purchase. It was a last-minute add-on purchase to create his huge Minecraft box of goodies from Santa more complete, and ended up being one of his favorite pieces!

    My son wasn't sure what to think of this book but I said that we should read one chapter (which is like 2 pages) which we did and then we kept reading and reading. He loved the book and we kept talking about Minecraft and zombies for days. We read the whole book in a day. The story really wasn't all that amazing but my first grader loved it because he is really into Minecraft and he really wants to obtain the rest of the books. Anything that can create him wish to read more is fine with me. So if you are reading it to them you may be a small bit bored and think the story is a small lack on the info but the children will love it. I think next time he will be able to read it on his own. So

    My 10 year old has dyslexia and other reading learning disorders. He struggles with finding reading material that keeps his interest. He is a large fan of Minecraft! This book grabbed his attention right away. I was shocked that he managed to read the whole book in one day!

    This book is so cute! It tells a story about a zombie boy who deals with day to day struggles with parents, mates and school. I like the method the book is broken up day by day, it makes it simple for my kindergartener (soon to be first grader) to read. He is able to read this independently but some of the words are difficult for him, so I don't think he can grasp all concepts without a small help. The book is little and fits in his hands easily and the price was awesome. My son loves Minecraft and was very impressed with this book, as he thinks it's a Minecraft Diary!! It was a a huge hit!

    I hate books, but this one is different. I love the diary/1st person aspect of it and all of the adventures he goes on. I love the characters from the bullies who are nice to the guardian who flops around and does jumping jacks. I think it's very interesting how the Mobs are scared of Humans like how Humans are scared of Zombies, and how Mobs wish to be dirty and gross. Sometimes I search mistakes like "he baby sitter" but it's fun to think about how they were made. I am currently on the 8th book and I am excited to read half of it tonight, and then half of it tomorrow night. My favorite hero is either Creepy or Endy. Another thing I like is how each picture on the front of the book is also in the book. I thought it was really funny when there was the word "noob" in the book, no other book would do that! Please, Zack Zombie, create more books of this series. I haven't finished but when I do will be waiting for the next one to come out :)

    Minecraft Books: Diary of a Minecraft Zombie Book 1: A Scare of a Dare (An Unofficial Minecraft Book) review [Book]  2018-5-28 18:0

    Love this book! I bought this for my niece's birthday. She just turned seven. She loves Minecraft, and she also loves to read. This is one of her favorite books now. When she opened it at the party, she immediately started to giggle. She couldn't wait, and had to read a little part to everyone. Everyone thought it was a really cute book. As soon as she finished opening the rest of her presents, she came to me and asked if she could read some more. She absolutely loved it. To hear her laugh as she was reading was precious. She now likes to read it to her small sister before they go to bed at night. You can hear the giggles coming from the is book is really cute, and excellent for a kid who loves Minecraft. I think this could obtain a kid who is not so fond of reading into reading for fun as well. It's enjoyable as an adult to sit down with a child, hear them read, and know they love the story. I recommend this for children and the child at heart.

    Absolutely amazing books. Well developed characters, amazing plot development, and detective and police methods obviously carefully researched. Have already purchased the second box set as has a close mate of mine and will continue to follow Harry Starke as his adventures continue. I am a devoted fan of David Baldacci, Lee Child, Tag Dawson and Brad Thor and now also Blair Howard.

    i really liked reading this book and finished it very quickly.i like all of katrinas books. they are fun and exciting and you just cant place them st of her books are cliff hagers, so if you like cliff hangers you will definetly like this book.i am waiting for a next book for julia jones teenage years, body swap, mind readers, and this one. i so excited for next books and especially this is book was about a girl, casey, and how a fresh girl Ali, who looks exactly like her, arrives at her school. shes jealous at first because Ali is getting all the attention, but then something happens and everything is book also kinda reminds me of the film parent trap and i really love that movie, so i really enjoyed this book.i would definetly recommend this book to girls age 9-12.

    Books for Girls - TWINS : Book 1: Swapped! review [Book]  2017-10-14 18:3

    Twins: Swapped! is an AWESOME book that you can never search an identical book like this y Wrigley shows up at school one day and finds that there's a fresh girl named Ali Jackson that looks EXACTLY like her. Same brown hair, same body, and same facial features! It was almost like Ali was her identical twin, only a better ver of Casey. On Ali's first day at school, she stole the heart of Jake Hanley, the cutest boy in the grade! She also got the highest marks in class, and is very popular. Casey and Ali finds out that they are actually twins in Ronnie's birthday party. Once Casey and Ali search out that they share the same birthday and that Ali was adopted when she was very young, this was MORE than a coincidence. Did Casey's mom hold a secret from her that she had a twin sister for all those years? Was Ali really her twin sister? Read the book to search out! ;)I rate this book FIVE STARS because this book is suspenseful and makes you wonder what's going to happen next. I can't wait to read the following books in the series! I recommend this book for girls who have been through the same situation as Casey and Ali did. Thank you for reading my review! :)-S

    This book was ok but very long like it was very did not obtain straight to the point I just didn't like but that my opinion you go read for your self but read it on kindle unlimited because if you have the same mind as me you wouldn't wish to waste your cash just saying .But as I say again it's only my opinion but it would be a amazing book for children ages 7-9 it was just really boring to me that is my opinion

    I'd give this book 5 stars because it's thrilling in a deep sort of method and gives you a cliff hanger at the end so that you can't wait to read more. It also provides various points of view so that you can hear the story from both sides!

    Books for Girls - TWINS : Book 1: Swapped! review [Book]  2017-10-14 18:3

    I got this book with my Kindle Unlimited account. I wanted to read it and see if I thought my 8 year old great-granddaughter would like to read this series. Even though I personally enjoyed the story I think it might be a tad too mature for my great-granddaughter. I thought it might be related to the book, "Parent Trap" except instead of having 2 people who use to be married & produced these twins, it was instead about an unmarried mother who gave up one of the twins. Not sure how my granddaughter-in-law would feel about me buying this book for her young child. I will continue to read the rest of it myself because as I said, personally I like the story, just not to buy it for my young great-granddaughter.

    Book Publishing for Authors: How to write, publish and market your book to a #1 bestseller in the next 90 days (Paul G. Brodie Publishing Series Book 2) review [Book]  2017-10-20 18:2

    The pathway to being a self-published author is riddled with a myriad of minefields. Some of those struggles have to do with believing enough in yourself to actually write a book that people will buy and appreciate. For others it's the actual steps you need to take that confuse and challenge them. I know this for a fact because I've been through them all, and I have the headaches and wasted cash to prove it!As a successful author, Paul helps to create the street to writing a book easier and without the bumps that so a lot of first time authors needlessly go through. Do your stress levels a favor and read this short and practical book - you'll be glad you did.

    I really thought it would be a bit more of a 'cliffs notes' of the three books. Not really. Not at all. Instead, it's written in the first part like it's intended for a GED review course. Don't obtain me wrong, I enjoyed to clever small story, but it was inconsistent with the rest of the book. In the beginning, he basically explains that a one dollar gain on a ten dollar investment is a 10% profit and then halfway through the book starts throwing around terms like derivative like it's nothing. Maybe he figures he had you geared up. I like that he has a companion www service where you can dig in more. I think he really wants people to understand these things and tries to relate them on a level that's recognizable. So, I don't mind the cartoon so much. If you're a beginner, this is a amazing book. If you're a small more seasoned, why aren't you just reading the three books instead?

    This is a amazing book if you wish to learn how to invest based on solid business principles rather than emotion and voodoo economics. I really appreciated this book and the accompanying videos via links in the ebook. You can simply access the videos off his webpage, but I think it's worth reading the ebook and then watching the videos. The author is able to break down some complicated literature into something understandable for the average reader. In the videos he actually shows you where you can obtain all the info he is using, so you can duplicate the process on your own. I watched his videos on my smartphone and went to the same www services he was using so I could trace the exact steps and this was helpful to me. In addition, his webpage has financial calculators you can use to value companies that are simple to use because he tells you how in the different video segments.

    I have read a lot of books about investing, I want I had found this book before spent thousands of dollars in seminars and other books with no true input. The book explains the Buffett method to evaluate stocks and bonds. It comes with free videos to reinforce every chapter in the book. The videos are very professional made. You will search videos in the author's web website and you tube. The videos along paid at least one semester in college ( Finance 101). If you really wish to learn to evaluate stocks like a guru watch the videos along with the book. In my opinion, the videos are extremely useful . The book itself is an simple read. The book is self published, but don't judge the cover or quality of paper. Judge the content of the book and the teachings in the videos. After you finish reading this book and watch the videos, I highly recommend to read The smart Investor and Security Analysis second edition by Benjamin Graham. Have a safe investment journey!!

    Preston Pysh faithfully info Warren Buffett's principles for investing to provide investors a specific approach to value investing. He weaves this info around a review of Warren Buffett's three favorite books. Having read as much of Warren Buffett's writings, interviews and transcripts of speeches and annual meetings as I can find, I think Preston has gotten to the key elements of choosing a company worthy of investing in and gotten to the heart of calculating intrinsic value. Warren Buffett gives ample guidance and tips on how to calculate the intrinsic value of a stock, but he will not come out and say exactly how he calculates it. Preston Pysh has made an exceptionally complete and yet easy approach to calculating the value of a company. If you wish to learn more about Warren Buffett's methods read my book "365 Everyday Quotations from Warren Buffett's Writings and Talks".

    Starts with a easy Laymen's intro with a story between a boy's lemonade stand(company, main shares), his mates (investors, greed / fear cycles) and his dad (financial advisor). The first 4 chapters use common day scenarios of this boy on his lemonade business to present the simplified shop process of greed and fear cycles vs actual worth of the business. Amazing examples gave me a whole fresh look at the shop and investing on a easy and simple to understand level. Then the following chapters obtain straight to the point of value investing how to and establishes the guidelines to be followed just as Warren Buffet's style investing is somewhat described. The book also has links to youtube videos that further illustrate the examples and practice how to follow the steps. Best book to obtain started in value investing out there!

    Warren Buffett's 3 Favorite Books: A guide to The Intelligent Investor, Security Analysis, and The Wealth of Nations (Warren Buffett's 3 Favorite Books Book 1) review [Book]  2017-12-4 18:0

    This is a amazing book if you wish to learn how to invest based on solid business principles rather than emotion and voodoo economics. I really appreciated this book and the accompanying videos via links in the ebook. You can simply access the videos off his webpage, but I think it's worth reading the ebook and then watching the videos. The author is able to break down some complicated literature into something understandable for the average reader. In the videos he actually shows you where you can obtain all the info he is using, so you can duplicate the process on your own. I watched his videos on my smartphone and went to the same www services he was using so I could trace the exact steps and this was helpful to me. In addition, his webpage has financial calculators you can use to value companies that are simple to use because he tells you how in the different video segments.

    I have read a lot of books about investing, I want I had found this book before spent thousands of dollars in seminars and other books with no true input. The book explains the Buffett method to evaluate stocks and bonds. It comes with free videos to reinforce every chapter in the book. The videos are very professional made. You will search videos in the author's web website and you tube. The videos along paid at least one semester in college ( Finance 101). If you really wish to learn to evaluate stocks like a guru watch the videos along with the book. In my opinion, the videos are extremely useful . The book itself is an simple read. The book is self published, but don't judge the cover or quality of paper. Judge the content of the book and the teachings in the videos. After you finish reading this book and watch the videos, I highly recommend to read The smart Investor and Security Analysis second edition by Benjamin Graham. Have a safe investment journey!!

    Preston Pysh faithfully info Warren Buffett's principles for investing to provide investors a specific approach to value investing. He weaves this info around a review of Warren Buffett's three favorite books. Having read as much of Warren Buffett's writings, interviews and transcripts of speeches and annual meetings as I can find, I think Preston has gotten to the key elements of choosing a company worthy of investing in and gotten to the heart of calculating intrinsic value. Warren Buffett gives ample guidance and tips on how to calculate the intrinsic value of a stock, but he will not come out and say exactly how he calculates it. Preston Pysh has made an exceptionally complete and yet easy approach to calculating the value of a company. If you wish to learn more about Warren Buffett's methods read my book "365 Everyday Quotations from Warren Buffett's Writings and Talks".

    Starts with a easy Laymen's intro with a story between a boy's lemonade stand(company, main shares), his mates (investors, greed / fear cycles) and his dad (financial advisor). The first 4 chapters use common day scenarios of this boy on his lemonade business to present the simplified shop process of greed and fear cycles vs actual worth of the business. Amazing examples gave me a whole fresh look at the shop and investing on a easy and simple to understand level. Then the following chapters obtain straight to the point of value investing how to and establishes the guidelines to be followed just as Warren Buffet's style investing is somewhat described. The book also has links to youtube videos that further illustrate the examples and practice how to follow the steps. Best book to obtain started in value investing out there!

    The book was a small shorter and more primary than I was expecting, but it does a amazing job of covering fundamentals with concrete examples. A amazing introduction into the globe of value based investing for those without much experience. If you are more experienced in fundamentals then I would go straight for the books that this one is attempting to summarize.

    I like how this book goes through the actual equations for things like intrinsic value. I understand its not a definitive value but it really helped me to obtain a true frame is reference. I've been frustrated for a long time hearing some of these things talked about in the most ambiguous of terms.

    I really thought it would be a bit more of a 'cliffs notes' of the three books. Not really. Not at all. Instead, it's written in the first part like it's intended for a GED review course. Don't obtain me wrong, I enjoyed to clever small story, but it was inconsistent with the rest of the book. In the beginning, he basically explains that a one dollar gain on a ten dollar investment is a 10% profit and then halfway through the book starts throwing around terms like derivative like it's nothing. Maybe he figures he had you geared up. I like that he has a companion www service where you can dig in more. I think he really wants people to understand these things and tries to relate them on a level that's recognizable. So, I don't mind the cartoon so much. If you're a beginner, this is a amazing book. If you're a small more seasoned, why aren't you just reading the three books instead?
