    "The Maze Runner collection is a great series by the author, James Dashner. Dashner has successful portrayed Thomas, the main character, as a real-life human being that you can relate to and constructed a series of events that keep you lingering through the end. The plot truly lives up to its name, it is an adventure and action packed novel with sequences that are unsuspecting and located in an environment that is unusual and alluring."

    "The Chronicles of Narnia are a favorite series of mine from childhood. There are some fantastic lessons about how to treat people and they truly carry you away into the world that CS Lewis created. I'd recommend the series to young adults and grown adults as well. They really paint a vivid picture of the fictional world in which they take place and there's no end to the excitement. "

    "The Hunger Games novel is probably something you'd want to read before you saw the movies. You much more details and insight. Plus, the movies leave out a lot of things that are in the book. If you want the complete experience, read the book first!"

    "This is a most poignant, and time-relevant, piece of fiction which is genuinely at the doorstep of human extinction. Considering the anthropogenic, abrupt, amplification of climate change, the depletion of potable water and the decimation of our environmental biology, by humankind, any viewer of the Netflix series, "3%", will get chills. Sadly, it is not so much a solution to our, ultimate, downfall, but more of a preamble to the inevitable."

    "A companion book to the popular 39 Clues series, The 39 Clues: The Black Book of Buried Secrets is a good bet, not only for the series' most die hard fans, but for those of us seeking some closure to a few of the threads left dangling at the end of The 39 Clues, Book 10: Into the Gauntlet. The book answers some questions, forces us to ask a few new ones, dangles a few new mysteries in our faces and gives us a chance to catch up with several of the series' major players since Gauntlet's end. Touted as the "ultimate guidebook" to the 39 Clues world, this is also a full color reference book to the fictional Cahill family, their various branches and to the history, famous historical members, founders and current agents of each branch. Information on branch strategies, strengths and strongholds, etc. is nicely laid out and more fun to read than I expected it to be. Author Rick Riordan, who wrote the first book in the 39 Clues series as well as the overall series arc has given us an attractive and interesting series overview that I'm happy to add to my collection even though I consider the "ultimate guidebook" description to be just a bit of a stretch. The Black Book of Buried Secrets also serves as a bridge to - wouldn't you know it? - a new 39 Clues series set to launch in April, 2011 with The 39 Clues: Vespers Rising, the first volume in The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers. In the new series, the Cahills will have to band together to protect their secrets from the Vespers, another large (and reportedly quite evil) family who have been watching the Cahills for years and are determined to uncover and steal the sources of their power. After Vespers Rising, the series consists of six additional books that will be published between August 2011 and March 2013 from authors Gordon Korman, Jude Watson, Peter Lerangis, Roland Smith, Linda Sue Park and (!!) David Baldacci. Recommended. Minor & Totally Personal Quibble: As someone who only read the books and wasn't involved with the website or the cards that were parts of the 39 Clues world, I hadn't come across the photos of the characters before and I have to say, I'm not a real fan of them. I guess I prefer the images my own mind created of Dan & Amy (and everyone else) and that preference made the photos somewhat distracting for me. But, like I said, a minor quibble."

    "I watched a show on a history channel and I showed the exact same story man who found Troy wasn't looking for the city itself, he heard about the riches it brought and that's what got him motivated to go and explore it. His methods where reckless he used dynamite to destroy the layers and once he got to the second last layer he named it Troy two and believed that Troy was just underneath but that's when he discovered a box hidden in a small space, he opens the box and finds the long lost riches. And in this book it has a brief summary of the story which I loved because it provided exact detail... Except it has 7 layers to it not 9 as it states in the book."

It's not just your average piece, though, it also includes various cosmic horrors and humor. It's a very...odd read but also one that's quite funny and enjoyable.

    "A good installment in that never ending series. I've read quite a few of those books and I ended up realizing that I can never really know what to expect from one book to the next. Some are really good, borderline fantastic, others are pretty meh. This one actually is pretty good, at least from my point of view, but I think it might be because I like the topic more than the way it's written or the action. It's just that I like how the back story of the families is presented, and I like those complicated stories of dynasties and familial fate and destiny. So, a really fun one for. It felt rich, well thought out, and lush with life and irresistible details. Well worth it."
