Reviews by Shay Stephens


by Lindsay Brambles

The story doesn't take long to read but it is pretty good. The tight spots they get into and out of are interesting up to the end. I found the commander a little irritating, but in the end it seems true to his character. The captain was very interesting. And the mystery that develops has me wanting to read more of the authors books.

It was an enjoyable read.

A Narrative Of The Mutiny, On Board His Majesty's Ship Bounty

by William Bligh

I just finished this book last night, it was much better than I was expecting. I was on the edge of my seat through much of it. Filled with action, adventure, and courage, I was amazed at the journey and deprivations they endured. The discipline they held to especially on the part of the captain was amazing. A great story I would recommend to anyone.

Around the World in 80 Days

by Jules Verne

Wonderful! It starts slow and placid, just like Mr. Fogg. But then things begin to pick up steam. The adventure and dangers never cease up to the very end when all explodes in a crescendo.

Along the way, a colorful portrait is painted of the world as it was back then. And at each point, Mr. Fogg's character is revealed by bits and pieces. His companions do much of the emoting for him, as he is a rock of placid confidence regardless of the danger to failure.

In the end, you can't help but to love Mr. Fogg, his loyal servant that sacrifices all, and other characters that enter the story along the way.

The book may take some patience at first, but you are soon rewarded, and the ending pays for all.

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

A wonderful sequel to At the Earth's Core. A real page turner of a book (again), ever more exploration, adventure, and friendship. It was a perfect ending to the story for me.

Filled with monsters, animals, dinosaurs, and beasts of all types, a world is built that you could almost image is really there.
