    "A man heads to a camp in search of work. He's heard of this beautiful girl whose glance is deadly but thinks nothing of it. Everyone else reaches a fatal conclusion but not him as he intends to make her his forever love. Quite intriguing. A Parchment of Leaves is worth the look"

    "This book is a weird little nugget of information. I'm not saying it's a bad read, just not one that makes sense the first time through."

    "I just read it since the movie didn't have actors i like but the storyline seemed good. It's interesting to read about a female villain for a change. that said i didn't find any of the characters likeable."

    "The Hornet's Nest during the Revolutionary War was generally known as the Charlotte NC area but here former president Carter has transposed that designation to an area in Georgia he is probably more familiar with. A surprisingly good novel. Some of the characters remind me of characters in other famous Southern novels by William Faulkner."

    "Although the Hunger Games are quite popular, I do not think the books are great, not even decent enough. The Hunger Games are popular because of the movies, I do not think you will enjoy them by reading."
