I thought It's Superman dragged in just a few places as I was looking for Clark to spring into action, but ultimately is was a great ride. The tone of the book (and of course the cover) make me think that seeing a graphic novel in this vein by Chris Ware would be awsome. I can dream can't I?

what a depressing book. without mentioning all the lovely details of the meatpacking industry in the early 20th century, life for immigrants back then was horrible.

* of ***** Eh, I read this via audiobook and I really needed to see what the author was talking about when he talked about building the house.

Richard Zachs is one of my favorite authors so I figure this is going to be pretty good.

Did you like the book, travlr?

Between my TV and movie viewing, I haven't had the time to read a novel in over 6 months. Visiting the new (and huge) Barnes & Noble at Ala Moana Shopping Center last week, I really felt a pang of how much I miss reading. . .
Let's just say you could pick alot of better books to get you back into reading. It is a cool cover though, probably one of the better Leisure covers I've seen recently.

Thanks, travlr!

It was a rainy weekend, and I decided to finally start reading a novel. (I checked, and it was more like 10 months since I read one.)

I chose Magic Time from my big stack, and so far, it's VERY interesting.



Oh, crap! I was just researching on Amazon for the next book in the series (Magic Time: Angelfire) , and it appears to be OOP! The cheapest paperback copy is $47.00! I would hate to be left hanging after this one!

*edit* Oh, the local libraries seem to have it!
