Ventus

by Karl Schroeder

Fantastic story, grest idea using nanotech to terraform a world. Something goesd wrong and humans are no longer able to communicate or control the technology and it takes on a life of its own.

The Mantooth

by Christopher Leadem

I do not understand how this book is getting such a high rating. Too much of the book is taken up with B-movie style lovie-dovey talk and Sylviana is more like a 1950s caricture of a woman. Why does the commnader of the NASA crew sound like he escaped from the 1950s as well? Also so much is left unresolved, what is the story with "the aliens" and the ability to talk to the Sun? Had the potential to be a great story but poorly put together.

Rating: two stars for the idea behind the book.

Alone Again Or

by Michael Bassette

Great story but read as if Google Translate had converted it from French or some other language. What ever happened to spell check, grammer and paragraphs. You run straight from one character into another and have to backtrack to figure out who you are reading about.

Could have been five star but only worth two as is.

Alice in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll

This version is abridged. It's missing chapters 9 and 10. It's even missing the disappearing Cheshire Cat. Why? It's not a long book in the first place.

Don't waste your time with this thing, look for a complete version elsewhere.

I give it one star as a reflection of this version rather than the work itself.
