The gunslinger by Stephen King is an amazing book with bottomless excitement and nonstop enjoyment. The book uses a very unique writing style where when you start the book you know nothing and gain information by memories from the past throughout the book. The book is very descriptive so it is easy to be able to picture everything just as the author imagines it should be. The book is about Roland, he is a gunslinger, the last of his kind. Set in a post-apocolyptic mid western setting he sets off for an amazing journey across the desert. This book is unlike any other i have ever read and is now one of my favorite books. Currently there are seven books in the dark towers series, this being the first, and it is very excited that I can have a fun long lasting series that I will enjoy for a long time. I highly recommend this book.
As a person who is very interested in biology and many of the topics discussed in the book i did find it interesting but not all that thrilling or well written. I thought it was quite precictable and hard to understand when it got into the nitty-gritty science things. I did not understand many of the science terms even though i have studied these things for over two months. I also found the book to have a flat plotline. Even the tense and more exciting scenes were not much more than people yelling and threatening each other. Also i dont understand how many little parts of the story relate to the main plot of the story and as the book goes on they never explain it or even say why it was put in there in the first place. All in all the book was not terrible and was pretty good for a science book but it would not be something i would choose to read in my free time for fun.
How would you like to live underwater? You would have to breathe in Liquigen, a liquid oxygen, any time you went outside. You'd have to watch out for sharks when ever you went outside. If you were a kid, you might even develop a Dark Gift. You'd even have to beware of outlaws. These are the problems faced by the characters in Dark Life by Kat Falls. Twenty percent of our continent has fallen into the ocean and people have to live in one room apartments in the cities that are left. Some people move to an experimental territory on the bottom of the ocean. There, they enjoy 100 acres of land, but have issues as well. Read this book to find out what happens to people who live on the bottom of the ocean.
In a world where earth is still bitter about an alien war that ended decades ago, in a world where religion is banned, in a world where children with futures in warfare are sent to train for battle at the age of six, here lives Ender Wiggen. Ender is a Third, meaning the third child where more than two can only be had by a family with special permission from the government. His two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, were rejected from the battle school, and Ender is their last hope. He is taken away to the school in space, where teachers throw everything they have at him to make him a better commander. By the age of eleven, Ender is a hardened and jaded soldier, ready to conquer an alien race that attacked the earth years ago. But what might be best for the world is by no means best for Ender. Ender is a genius, a killer, and a master strategist. But he's still a little boy, alone and scared of others, but mostly terrified of himself.
It was a high speed chase of excitement! A wonderful, rare read that keeps you wanting more. I would suggest this book to mature readers who like action, adventure, sci-fi, and not being able to stop reading! One of the best books I have read!
If you were the type of person to love Hunger Games, then this is the book series for you! The Maze Runner series is a science fiction series for those people who don't think they would like science fiction and also for those who already love it. In the first book, Thomas finds himself in a strange world not being able to remember anything from his past. When he gets up, he also finds himself with a whole bunch of teenage boys. This is when the mystery begins. In this sequel to The Maze Runner, you are still left wanting more, but also feeling as if you have been given more bits of the puzzle as time goes on. The Scorch Trials is just as good and loads as interesting as the first books. The thing about these two books is that they both at points just will plain confuse the reader, but also wanting them to find answers. In this book, the reader has a good time reading it due to being well written, good plot, and twists and turns that no one can see coming. Overall, this book made me very impatient while I currently wait for the next book. :)
