The Outsiders

The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton "This is a very nice book
After reading I've replaced the phrase ""May the Force be with you"" for the ""Stay gold"" in my lexicon
IMHO, the second one is more important"

Boy's Life

Boy's Life - Robert R. McCammon "It was very tough job to rate this book
First of all, how can you rate the world of someone's childhood????
Secondly, yes, the book is brilliant; yes, it's full of nostalgy, mystic adventures and scary misadventures, spooky atmosphere, far and dim images of reader's own childhood, magic, usual life and so on and so on
And I like, really like every single item of this list, but....
Too many stories inside the book
And when you read, you can notice that one chapter is amazing, another is good, third is amazing and next two are good and you have this feeling through the entire book
So, at the end of the book you can't understand whether this book is very good or amazing
Because of this, I've made the decision to rate each chapter separately and find an arithmetic mean
The result is 4.25
So, my rating for this book is 4 stars
But this lack of one star does not mean anything and if you want to return into your childhood for one or two evenings, feel the summer breeze on your face like no adults can, recall how to be happy when you find an unusual stone, figure out that bad people are weak defeatable minority....
Allow this book to lead you to the shores where the parents were young, bikes were the best vehicles and night camp in the wood was much better than sycophant glamour of the adult world"

Holy Bible: New International Version - Anonymous "The impassioned reviews are silly
The bad reviews are silly
It's the Bible, significant historical document
It's unrateable"

Shadow Blizzard

Shadow Blizzard - Alexey Pehov "This is my favorite book in the ""Chronicles Of Siala"" trilogy

Это - моя любимая книга в ""Хрониках Сиалы"""

Shadow Prowler

Shadow Prowler - Alexey Pehov "This book is a very good example of russian epic fantasy book
I've read the russian version and I can't make a review of english translation
Keep in mind that it's the first part of trilogy
It's highly recommended to read the whole trilogy
In the third book there are unexpected twists of plot and the quite sad finale

Это очень хороший образец русского фэнтези
Читал на Русском, поэтому не могу судить об Англоязычном издании
Обратите внимание, что это - только первая часть трилогии
Настоятельно рекомендую прочитать всю трилогию
Вы получите в третьей части порцию неожиданностей и довольно мрачный финал"


Necroscope - Brian Lumley ""

The Resort

The Resort - Bentley Little "Mr. Little's way of writing books is as follows:
Take ordinary things, like resorts, universities, mailmen.
Add some strange and disturbing details one by one, gradually: strange, very strange, WTF strange, etc.
Turn these ordinary things into an incredible nightmare.
This is a good method for 1 or 2 novels, but Little uses it way too often and almost without any changes, so after several books it gets pretty boring and is not at all impressive anymore"
