    "I love Neil Gaiman's books and Anansi Boys is one of his best. All I can say about this novel is it's Neil and that's all you need to know. Go read it and you will not be disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and will always be a fan of Neils."

    "This is one of the more creative, imaginative, and unusual books I've read in a long, long time. Sad I discovered it so late; it's truly a great read. A long book, yet reads vey well. Go ahead, dive into Gaiman's wild imagination. Be prepared for unexpected twists, turns, and delightful weirdness. Truly A classic."

    "I must be weird but I found The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis to be a bit boring. This story requires a lot of patience as the plot tends to drag along. I know this book is highly rated, especially for those who like fantasy and mystical creatures and gods, but I just didn't really enjoy the story."

    "I love fantasy novels, but "The Son of Neptune" was disappointing for me. I liked the mythical-god subject, but it moved slowly and I didn't like some of the characters. If I had a chance to decide again, I would not pick this book."

    "My 11 yr old daughter loves this series and asked me to read it with her. I found myself reluctantly enjoying these books. I like the hidden morality lessons and the mythological component, which has inspired her to learn about the Greek gods independently. There is a romantic component between the characters which I could do without, but it's all PG and nothing too hot and heavy. Violence is a component of the books but it is limited and not graphic at all."

    "The Throne of Fire is the second book in the very strong Kane Chronicles. I wish this type of book existed when I was a kid. I think I would have read a lot more with stories like these. Fully fleshed out and approachable characters that adults or kids can really understand and get behind."

    "God? How about gods. The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles) is clearly the best ya fantasy books with gods. It follows the journey of two girls being reunited with their father, but unknown to them some dangerous gods are lurking. I'd highly recommend this book for any young adult."

    "Pretty much anything by Brandon Sanderson would be good for a YA audience. He keeps it clean and generally doesn't go TOO dark like some authors (mr. Martin). Mistborn is a great series with a really enjoyable magic system."

    "I read Hounded because the author's bio made me laugh, which I felt was a good sign. The humor was present in the book but it seemed a bit forced. I loved the interaction between Atticus and Oberon, but aside from them I didn't find myself caring much for what happened to anyone else. It's nice to read when you are bored."
