Wither
Wither
von J G Passarella
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Frightening! Completely captivating!, 25. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wither (Taschenbuch)
This not normally the type of book I would read, but I borrowed this book from the library and read it in two days! The first day I went to bed with the book and was so captivated that I was shocked when I looked at the clock and saw 3:00 AM! I was halfway through the book and finished it the next day. HOWEVER, I didn't sleep well since the story was so haunting and utterly terrifying!
Mr. Passarella portrays in this book a charming college town on the brink of terror beyond imaging. The town has a centuries old history of three witches condemned to die in the only witch trial the town. Unlike many innocent women convicted of being witches during their time, these were not innocent women, they were evil to the core -- the worst of all three was one called "Wither". The three witches come back to terrorize the small town in the 20th century and steel the lives of three innocent people -- a college professor, a young college student, and an 8 year old girl. To tell much more of the story would ruin the mystery that unravels in it the book.
The characters are well developed, particularly the character of Wendy a girl who dabbles in white magic and believes she has brought the terror to her sleepy town accidently and also believes that she must find away to banish it on her own.
Read it, but make sure you leave a light on because you won't sleep well when you do!


Whispers
Whispers

Preis: EUR 6,66

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, held my attention to the conclusion!, 8. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Whispers (Taschenbuch)
This book was well written and I learned to care about the characters enough to read it over a two day period (not an easy thing to do in this busy life) -- though it did take the main character a little too long to reach the inevitable conclusion.
Still, Belva Plain is one of the great story tellers of our time and this book, therefore has earned a spot on my bookshelf, to stay.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The greatest spy thriller I have every read!, 9. Mai 2000
Robert Ludlum is a master story-teller! His writing is superb! One thing to note, whenever you begin one of his lengthy books you need to devote enough time for 50 pages in the first sitting just to get to know all the characters. It is well worth your time to do so.
This book is probably the BEST spy thiller I have ever read. The main character, Jason Bourne, is a character you learn to really care about. Not all writers are capable fo creating that feeling with their writing. Ludlum is a master. Though this book is part of a three part series, this book DOES stand well on it's own. I have read all three -- I highly recommend this -- and now all three have a cherised spot on my bookshelf. Good enough to read more than once in a lifetime!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Historical Fiction -- A great work!, 9. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wings of the Falcon (Taschenbuch)
This book is a bit of a departure from the mystery/suspense that Barbara Michaels' is best known for. It is more of a historical work of fiction. It does contain the suspense that Ms. Michaels' is known for.
The book is well written and held my interest enough that I read it in one day! It now has an honored place on my bookshelf!

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of her best! Couldn't put it down!, 9. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Witch (Taschenbuch)
I have read several of Barbara Michaels' books and have to say that this may actually be the best one I have read! I borrowed it from the library and was so entranced by the story that I read it in one day. Now I plan to purchase a copy from Amazon for a place on my bookshelf - which isn't that easy to qualify for! Only the very best books gain a place there. And this book is a great one!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as I hoped -- a disappointment, 9. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Be Buried in the Rain (Taschenbuch)
I have read many of Barbara Michaels' books and enjoyed most. This book, however, lacked the suspense and excitement that most of her other books have. This book was quite a disappointment.
