    "Red haired children are no longer the ugly stepchild. They are some of the most interesting people to characterize in a book. Red Haired characters sport a beautiful mane with their red hair. It lights up any scene they apart of because the writer has to describe it with beautiful imagery. This book is a great recommendation of those red-haired characters. "

    "I read this book back in college and it was okay. However, I found most of the stories too unrealistic and quite frankly unbelievable. I can't say that I enjoyed it but I think some people might like it. "

    "What the world needs more of is killing of wives. I tell this to my wife, all the time. She gives me funny looks, but, not as funny as Anne Boleyn's fate. You wouldn't have expected a whole book dedicated to just the wives of one man, but here we are."

    "I love the Harry Potter books and movies. I enjoy the books a little more because they are more in-depth. This is definitely a book with a red-haired character and he's quite the charming young man. All characters are entertaining, fun loving and charming. They each have their own explicit character development and keep you engaged in the story throughout the book. The plots of the books are extremely interesting and fun as well. "
