    "Reboot was a zombie meet hunger games style read. I really enjoyed the concept overall of this book, coming back as a reboot after dying etc. I also loved the dry wit of the main character Wren and her journey she leads the reader on. I really enjoyed the love story and how it changed Wren and Callum. My favorite though was that this story didn't fall into the normal stereotypical zombie read. "

    "I was across the globe over the few years and I wanted to make sure I spend time in the afternoon with my teenage twin sons. I was looking for something exciting and magical to share with them while I read to them at night. I found this mind-bending sci-fi novel called "Altered," by Jennifer Rush, which is a intellectually stimulating novel for young adults to use their imagination to illustrate a dystopian future society where the world is controlled through technological and scientific achievements that creates a class structure designed to oppress. My sons absolutely love the storyline and they keep begging me to acquire more books by this author. Thank you !"

    "Pivot point is yet another rehash of the hunger-divergent-runner formula in which our heroine finds out that she has new powers! And a love interest! Spend your time elsewhere for this is a tale that has been told a thousand times before"

    "This came out five years ago. What is most appealing about the book is how funny it is. The main character is a hoot, and so are her friends. The prose skips along nicely. The plot is complex enough to keep one engaged until the last page, but not so confusing that one feels left behind. This is a light, enjoyable mystery read."

    "I understand the direction that the author wanted to take with this Rapunzel rendition but it was not a good direction. Rapunzel was full of life originally with long gold locks of hair but in this story, she is sad, depressed, and has lost all hope. The story should have been told in a better light so that she could retain her youthful and hopeful personality. The cover art looks really depressing as well. "

    " I loved this book. First the writing was terrific because you felt each character completely. The author wrote it so well that you could actually feel the hurt, happiness, lust etc. while reading it. The characters were so well developed and even the characters were easy to connect to."

    " I read the first two books and loved them, so I was really excited for this book to come. It did not disappoint. Like the first two books, I was unable to put it down. I feel like the characters really grew in this book. I can't wait to see what is in store for them in the fourth book."

    High-Rise is J.G. Ballard's 1975 postmodern novel about the residents of an isolated apartment whose ideologies devolved into something more primal, more animalistic.

    "The entire story takes place inside a 40-story luxury high-rise that houses about 2,000 people – an ostensibly homogenous group of high-income individuals. But as tensions begin to arise between the wealthy dog owners on the top floors and the families on the bottom floors, the residents of the high-rise divide into three groups, driven by power and self-interest. The hostilities gradually increase as they assimilate into their self-imposed hierarchies within the building and devolve into chaos and anarchy. Ballard cleverly positions the high-rise as both a literal structure and a social structure. But as the characters devolve into a Hobbesian state of nature, the most disturbing thing of all is that they admit to feeling happier. Finally able to exercise their most devious impulses, they slowly reveal more genuine versions of themselves. Clearly lots of fascinating themes to unpack here – and no surprise coming from J.G. Ballard. Like a Lord of the Flies for adults, this was a dark and twisted read"

    "A Clockwork Orange has always been one of those books you should probably read. A book about criminals who come out at night and a story focused on the actions of a 15 year old, this book is a definite read. The forces of good and evil and the actions of the state to try to remake the main character into something more average. What will happen? Maybe you should read it."

The novel is full of laughs, as well, and managed to keep me entertained when I was in hospital after an unfortunate accident with a weed-whacker."
