Ender's Game (Ender Wiggin Saga) von Orson Scott Card

There are lots of books in the English language that you won't be able to put down once you start reading them. These books are a great gift to the reader. The first time I read EG, I picked it up in the school library before first period and skipped a whole day of classes to finish it. There aren't a lot of books that demand, once you've voraciously consumed them, to be immediately read again. EG is one of those books. Its value as entertainment is unsurpassed in the Science Fiction genre. It may not be SciFi's best entry (so far, for my money, that award goes to Hyperion), but it is certainly one of the most delicious. Somehow Scott Card manages to combine every boy's dream… Mehr dazu

A Soldier of the Great War is the kind of book that will pull you in so completely that you hope to never finish it.
This book will become your friend. The two Helprin books I've read have… Mehr dazu

2.0 von 5 Sternen this is tripe, 31. Mai 2000
Forgive me all you Goodkind fans, but this book is downright schmaltzy! Don't get me wrong; I love a good fantasy story as much as anyone. Believe me when I say that I have stretched the limitations of what I will accept for the sake of a good story about sleeping in the woods, running around with wizards. This book, however, has crossed the line.
There are too many reasons why this book is so bad to number, but I can at least name a few: The Dialog. The dialog is horrendous. If I have to hear one more time between Richard (our fair hero) and his beloved Kahlan that they do something or other for each other because "that's what friends are for", I'm going to puke. No… Mehr dazu
