    "Warday and the Journey Onward was an okay read. It wasn't very engaging though, but maybe it just wasn't my type of novel."

    "I already loved post apocalyptic movies and books and was delighted when my nephew got me this book. The fact that it was written by two authors didn't matter, everything was seamless. Loved the California setting"

    "The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch is a collaboration between Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The book was a little quirky overall as a read. “It has been said that civilization is twenty-four hours and two meals away from barbarism.”"

    "This book is an excellent place to start, if you're someone like me who has always been curious but too overwhelmed by the breadth of options and material available out there. You'd be surprised to know that Pagans are not the same as Satanists. It is written is a style that is fairly easy to digest for those of us non-religious souls out there! "

    "I don't usually read novels that are promoted as teen fiction, but this one intrigued me and my niece swore to God I would love it. I started it to be able to talk about it with her afterward and I ended up loving it. It's funny and engrossing, a little sappy at times, but not in a way I found annoying or crass. It's an easy read, definitely, and it will probably make you feel happy and light-hearted. But what I really liked about it is the way it was written - by two authors who each wrote roughly half the chapters, each writing in the voice of one of the two main protagonists. It's a very simple concept and it works very well. The whole thing gains much authenticity and depth from it, and it's effortless and elegant. Inspiring and fun."

    "This book does have 2 authors. However, I do not think it's the greatest story. The book is also very old and seems to be a very old story line. Younger readers I think would get bored very easily. I would not call this the best by any means."

    "While I do I think this story presents itself as being interesting, I think the subject of a child being abused and drugged may be a hard pill for some to swallow. I think it really depends on just how graphic and descriptive the respected author choose to get regarding that. With that being said, I would expect this novel to be a very emotional and moving read."

    "When it comes to books that are co-authored, it's either hit or miss...and let's be frank, it's usually miss! This is an exception to the almost-rule, however. The Art of Happiness may as well be an example of the art of book writing! The two hands behind the pens flow so brilliantly, and the energy each of these individuals produces is unlike any other... 1 + 1 does not equal 2 in this case, it is so much more!"

I think if I was a Christian, I might balk at some of the information, but as a non Christian, this book is very interesting."

    "This isn't exactly what I'm looking for. This appears to be an excellent children's book, but that's also what it is. A children's book. As such, it has a single author, and an illustrator credited as well, as is often the case. This is not technically what I'd consider to be a multiple-author book, and also not the sort of book I'm looking for, with regards to age range."
