    "The Book Thief by Markus Zusak does not belong on any best list. Certainly not a recommended readings list. The book promotes racism. We have enough racist people in the world. By promoting books like this, we just promote racism."

    "A weird love story. It doesn't follow traditional love stories and is quite an interesting read. The language used is a little old fashioned but once you get past that, the story is worth a read. "

    "I love winter and the feeling that it creates. I was looking for a good book to read during winter and Snow Falling on Cedars fit that. It is a hauntingly sad story that flashes back between the 30's, 40's, and 50's. Snow Falling On Cedars is interesting and is a perfect wintertime read."

    "It was starting to be cold outside, so I went shopping for a good book to get me through the winter here. After looking around a bit, I settled on the Night Road. It wasn't a bad book, but I wish it didn't draw on as long as it did. It kept me entertained for a bit though."
