    "I last read this book in high school for a literature class, and had fond memories of it but wasn't sure that it would stand the test of time if I read it again. It didn't disappoint me, 20 years later. I couldn't put the book down, and have read it 3 times since purchasing it. I think that you connect with it differently as an adult, and it's still a great read!"

    "If I Stay is one of the best worth reading books. There are a lot of reviews out there singing this novel's praises, for I am severely in the minority. Really, this review (however imprecise and concise it may be), is nothing more than my informal opinion of it. Do I think this is a terrible book? No, I think it has substance and the prose is poetic. But did I enjoy this book? Not really. It couldn't engage me and I will most likely forget about it in a matter of weeks."

    "I like this book a lot. It is written for ages 10 and up but as a parent, I also really enjoyed reading it. I love that the main character has Asperger's Syndrome and has to prove to the world that he can succeed as a detective. I think this sends a great message to kids that they can be capable over overcoming their personal obstacles and it also helps them to be more tolerant of other people. "

    "Marriage is hard enough without having your husband off in another time frame altogether. But somehow, they make it work. I'm not crazy about the language in the book at times, but it might not bother some. It was ok, a little confusing at times, but I got through it."

    "The Empire by Elizabeth Lang is a space opera and book one of a trilogy. The story is well crafted and the characters are quite interesting. Classified as a science fiction thriller, The Empire is as much about romance and intrigue as it is military action. I found myself immersed in this book and am looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy."
