Review: TWISTED scores 9 out of 10

TWISTED is actually an amazing book written by Mr. Andrew E. Kaufman.

It is really one of the best books I have read for the past 10 months.

I passed trough 3 or 4 different stages while reading TWISTED!

At fist I was excited about the story since it seems interesting and new.

Then at some point I became suspicious that the author is going to take the easy way out of the story and was a little disappointed.

After that I as impressed that he managed to stay on track and by the end of the book I was amazed by the writer's decisions regarding the end of the story.

I am in love with this book. It is true that the book somehow resembles "Shutter Island" a little, but it has been quite some time since I was put trough all that emotions by just one book! It is definitely worth reading! My final score for the book is 9 out of 10.

Review: Tweedledum and Tweedledee (Emma Frost #6) by Willow Rose

Happy New Year everyone!

I wish you all a lot of luck since someone told me these days that there is no sick or poor lucky person in the word.

Now, this year I decided to read more than ever and to post a new review for each and every one of them.

The first book that I read this year is Tweedledum and Tweedledee by Willow Rose.

I am giving 4 out of 5 stars to this book.

The book is nice and entertaining. It is an easy read, I finished it in two days.

I have to say that throughout the book I was sure who was the killer and at the end I was wrong. It is not every day that I am wrong about who the killer is.

The only thing I did not like about the book was the preview on the next book in the series. The personal drama of the main character is a little too much for me. I try to skip it as much as I can, but sometimes you just can't. Given the fact what the next book is going to be about, I may stop reading about Emma Frost for some time, and meet some of the other Willow Rose characters.

Book review: The Mysterious Island

The Mysterious Island The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the most impressive book I've ever read. I haven't got enough words to explain how deeply this book affected me. I have never read something more meaningful than this book. No modern author can write like that.
The fact that this author did not have any engineering education at all, and that he learnt everything from books in the local library make his works even more ingenious. I bow to his genius mind.
I am sorry to confess that most of us today don't have even a fraction of his practical knowledge and ingenuity.
