    "WWI is often overshadow by WWII. The truth is that the first war was much more gruesome with countless trenches and stationary battle fields. It was more like a slaughter house than a war."

    "April is my birth month so I pretty much get any book that has April in the title; strange, I know. I was disappointed in this one. The story was boring and moved far too slow for me."

    "This book is a pretty interesting to read because it has to deal with perspectives, perceptions and the issue of racism against African American people. Even though the book is based on fiction, it still makes you feel like it's based on a real story considering the drama and narrative behind the characters. It starts out of the rather sad story though it does become uplifting and makes you feel rathergood about the main character coming around about her feelings against other races towards the end. It's definitely one of the better books that I've read this year and was pleasantly surprised by how well written it was."

Thought they did a fantastic job of keeping me entertain the whole way through never once did I get bored."

    "It is a bold concept to have the name of a month in the title of a book due to how hard it can be to pull off effectively; however, The October Country does not waver in its efforts to make an impression. Written by Ray Bradbury, this book discusses classic horror tales and journeys into the dark depths of mystery. This book is a must read to any young Sherlock's out there!"
