Has anyone read this book or do they plan on it?
Humans, Bow Down - James Patterson,Emily Raymond,Alexander Ovchinnikov,Jill Dembowski

I really, really want to read this book, but I feel like it's going to be 'humanity strikes out against robots and destroys them, yay!'  

 

And I'll be all like 'boo!'   

 

So... has anyone read this?

Your classic teenage boy coming of age story...with a dragon
Choices - Alexander F Patterson

The following book was kindly sent to me by the author, Alexander F. Patterson, who requested a review.

 

Choices is a fantasy novel that takes place in Northern Europe during the 5th century (or thereabouts). This is the story of Richard Orlendr and his dragon, Aiden. This is a slightly different spin on dragon lore in that Richard and Aiden can communicate telepathically. The book is written from Richard's POV and he considers it more Aiden's story than his own. I suggest that you make sure that you are in the mood for an epic fantasy before starting this book because it is very detail oriented especially in regards to the mythology of the Norns and the gods. (This is touted as alternative history as much of the world building is taken from real historical events.) This book is also very dialogue heavy especially in regards to the communication between Richard and Aiden who have a very unique/close relationship. For the most part, I enjoyed this book but I don't think I'll be continuing the series (the ending was slightly ambiguous leading me to believe that a follow-up is possible). I enjoyed the historical references but I wasn't really invested in the characters or their journey. Also, the references to magic and its casting were dubious and unrealistic (think Harry Potter and how 'realistic' the magic is to the reader). This is a 4/10 for me.

Sam's Letters to Jennifer
Sam's Letters to Jennifer - James Patterson,Anne Celeste Heche,Jane Alexander I thought this book started off great and I was beginning to think I'd be pleasantly surprised, but about halfway through, well, the cheese just got too thick for me. I seriously thought I was going to gag on all the melodrama. This is a Lifetime movie times 100. Actually, it might work better as a Lifetime movie. It should star Ann Heche, who narrated the audio version, and she was really the best part. I guess if you like sappy, sentimental, forced plot-line romances, then this book is for you.
