    "One of the lesser known stories by Verne, this story is quite interesting. It is completely unrealistic, but it is fun to read. How would people survive in that environment. Watching the people interact is the best part of the book. "

    ""Wolf Hall" received the 2009 Man-Booker Prize (Great Britain's Pulitzer equivalent) and I can say it certainly lived up to expectations. While I did have some problems with some of the writing style the story is quite interesting, and if you are a fan of fiction based on real historical figures, I think you will find this book quite good."

    "Three sisters vie eagerly over their mother's inheritance and the conflicts they have amongst each other drives this story of jealousy, betrayal and passion. The poignant story is uplifted with the romance that each of the sisters shares outside of their own relationships, and over the 30 year long course, ties together how family can be difficult to live with but ultimately a cherished privilege to nourish."

    "An ok book. The story is interesting enough, but it drags on for longer than it should. Also, the characters are a little stereotypical/hard to believe. The gorgeous twins that lead a great life, the poor orphan, etc. The twist towards the middle makes it worth reading."
