    "I think this book had potential to be good, but I didn't enjoy it. I think the characters were not attractive enough and the personalities were too shallow. I liked her other books but I don't recommend this one."

    "I tried reading through Six Years, and even though I only made it about half way it definitely felt like six years of my life had be wasted. From the glacial plotting to the two dimensional characterizations, everything about this book was a disappointment. "

    "This is one of the best movies I've ever had the privilege of watching. If anyone doesn't know this already I was told that Jodie Foster was not willing to do any more of the sequels because the Silence of the Lamb disturb her so badly when she was making it. After watching the movie I could definitely understand her reasons why she would feel this way. "

    "I've been a fan of Michael Connelly for awhile and the Harry Bosch series includes most of my favorites. The Black Echo is one of the best, which great intrigue and suspense from start to finish. If you're looking for a change from Jodi Picoult, or whichever author you've been reading a lot of, try picking up a Michael Connelly. You won't be disappointed."

    "After 3 books co-written with William D. Montalbano Hiaasen wrote 'Tourist Season' in 1986, effectively kickstarting what I regard as the golden decade of his. The humor was even more expressed (and if possible even darker) when he was on his own. The satire a bit more biting. The characters a bit more twisted. There are certainly things to ask for in his writing, but the fifth star is there for pure entertainment value. If you know what you're in for you this can't go wrong. "

    "Being a big bookworm and a fan of Jodi Picoult I thought I'd give this book a shot as it was suggested to me by a friend. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. This book is more of a thriller and for mystery buffs than those looking for a Picoult like book. I was looking more for This isn't to say the book is bad it just simply was not the genre I was expecting."
