Rice Tea

by Julien McArdle

I almost died from laughing so hard at Diane's review. It's so true! I am a geek and I understood about 90%of the book. But unless you do computers for a living, there's no way this book would interest you. However, I loved it!! It's actually the second time I've read it...super awesome.

Half a Rogue

by Harold MacGrath

This novel is one of the best I have read in a long time. Each character is brilliantly drawn, each suspense is actually suspenseful. The end of every climax was very satisfying. highly recommend this book. Very well executed!

No Strings Attached

by Lester del Rey

I read this a wile ago but, after stumbling upon it again, I remember enough to review it. In fact, the fact that I remember it so well speaks for itself. A very good book with realistic characters and a surprise at the end. Four stars.

The Goose Girl

by Harold MacGrath

This story is simply saturated with Anthony Hope's style. I love it. A charming gentleman, a beautiful princess, old-world courtesy and manners. It didn't really strike me as being melodramatic; the plot seemed to fit the stage like a glove. I have read Voice in the Fog by the same author and I really liked both. One thing, I am getting sick of books with the ending always being the girl accepting a man's proposal. It's sappy. In this book, the ending is the girl saying, "I am happy now." and the book ends. Other than that, the romance as fine, but I just don't like endings like that.
