    "The Appalachian Trail is in my backyard and one day I want to hike it. I thought this book would be a great way to start planning my trip and it was everything I expected and more! Bryson is a witty and sometimes down-right hilarious author. The book had all the information I expected it to have but was told to me as if I were in conversation with the funniest friend I've ever had. I highly recommend it!"

    "A good read but a little too repetitious. I've read many Jodi Picoult books and this story doesn't stray too far from the rest. I felt the author could have gone more in-depth with the location."

    "This book is a bit difficult to characterize. It is a thriller but it has science fiction overtones and perhaps urban fantasy with Children of the Corn and Al Capone. Archeologist trying to establish the whereabouts of Atlantis encounter a current situation that jeopardizes their lives and mental well being. I'm not terrible thrilled with the first paragraph and its run on sentence but bear with me. Mr. West crafted both a thought provoking story and a tense, action packed runaway. You can get caught up in the action and miss the contemplation of how little we know of the bulk of our earthly environment, the seas. Interesting characters abound in this book. You have archeologists, artists, authors, gangsters, psychopaths, the Coast Guard and shape changers. West does a good job crafting each player and making them believable. The story is colorful, entertaining and well plotted. There is something for every reader and the story provides fodder for every imagination."

    ""A Prayer for Owen Meany" was a sleep-fest. Every time I picked up this boring book, it was like having a nightcap. I really wanted to like this book but it did not impress."

    "Cutter's Run is a terrible book if you want a New Hampshire setting. The book is primarily set in Maine and the setting is not terribly important or really relevant at all. This book is a predictable mystery book that left me bored."
