Movie Review: The Final Destination 2009

Though the movie is packed with gross and bloody death scenes, a few of the deaths are shown as if by X-ray. The effect of seeing the bones being smashed is really neat...

Book Review: A Nobody’s Nothings

There might actually be people who enjoy reading toilet humor, but this reviewer is certainly not one of them. Though this type of crudity isn't humorous, it really wasn't offensive either, at least to me. It was just pointless.

Loose Id states on their site that they take you to the edge of the abyss and then toss you in, but is this possible with prudish editors?

Yes, there ARE fake reviews on Amazon!

Are there really naive people out there that believe every one of those 1 star reviews on Amazon are real? Apparently, an author went ballistic about a few of her negative reviews and posted responses.

Knit 1 for The Road Book Review, By Jude Liebermann

The basic premise of this book is that it is ideal for the knitter on the go, and that everyone from beginner to intermediate will find the patterns easy to follow.

Cry Sanctuary Book Review

Overall the book was interesting and flowed well. Its new slant on the werewolf lore was enjoyable. Vampires don't exist, but Wizards do. A part of that magic mixed in with the werewolves, making some of them very strong.
