    "I Am Legend is one of the most interesting stories I have ever read. It thrusts the reader into a horrifying world where there is no hope left but yet the main character continues on. The vampires are a nice dark touch and really bring together the story nicely. Highly recommended to anyone interested in end of world stories!"

    "I'm rather picky about classics and though there are a few I really enjoy, most of them I just don't. This is an important book and worth your time, if Gothic Romance is your thing. The atmosphere created by the writer is dreamy and haunting. "

    "One of the more interesting storylines I've encountered in my fiction reading lately comes from the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman. It's about a little girl who discovers another dimension. Some of Gaiman's stuff is really out there, and this book fits that bill. Great read. "

    "Although the book was written twenty years ago, it still resonates truth and experience. And everyone loves a good adventure story, a coming of age story and an emotional, moving journey such as this book seems to offer."

    "It seems as if everything these days is compared to Watergate. I feel it's a bit oversaturated at this point and many people don't even know or care what it was about. That being said, this book tries it's best to create a different view of the entire event creating different story lines and character arcs that can be entertaining. Do not consider this book for factual historical lessons, this is more of a book for people that are well aware of the event looking for a relief and funny way to take it all in stride. It can be a bit boring for non-political minded people. "

    "I thought that this book was pretty average. Ella Bella tries to tackle struggles of loss and uncertainty in a new way but doesn't quite achieve its goal. It felt like I had read this kind of story before. With that in mind I still found the book somewhat enjoyable. Maybe if I was younger I might have found it to be more interesting."
