Half Brother (2010)

review 1: I loved how the book encompassed exactly what people have been doing for the past 30-40 yrs. That is teaching animals to communicate through ASL. I just hope that along with everything else, this book sent a message out to its readers: Animal cruelty doesn't just affect the anima...
This Dark Endeavor (2011)
4.15 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is one of those books where I liked it a lot but most of the time it drove me crazy. I have never read the original Frankenstein story but I know enough about it to tell that Victor Frankenstein is a genius but also a madman. This book is unique because it shows you how he...
Boundless, The (2014)

review 1: Most of the story reads like an adventure, but there are elements of fantasy. A Sasquatch is introduced early in the plot, and it reappears later in the book. The circus owner is a magician, and he's trying to find a painting with the power to save his life. There are also supern...
Such Wicked Intent (2012)

review 1: The only reason I gave this book 2 stars is because I didn't actually enjoy the story. The writing was awesome as usual with this author, and the creepy parts were... CREEPY, But I just didn't enjoy reading about how bad the characters got. I didn't like all the demons and posses...

review 1: This is an excellent novel telling the story of a young preteen, named Ben, whose life is different from most young people. Unlike many, Ben has a younger brother who is a chimpanzee! Ben's father, who is a scientist employed by a prestigious university, is curious of the ability...

review 1: 'This Dark Endeavour' is a fantastic gothic novel for the YA (or possibly older middle-grade) market.Basically, it imagines what might have made Victor Frankenstein the man he was in Mary Shelley's novel.It takes place when Victor Frankenstein is 16 years old. He lives a very com...
Una Oscura Obsesión (2013)
3.88 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Quite frankly, young Victor Frankenstein ANNOYS me. He is infuriating, selfish, dragging friends into his quest for glory and to impress Elizabeth, who explicitly states that she isn't interested in him. I don't hate him. I just... don't like him. A lot. Which is fine, because fl...
Starclimber (2000)

review 1: One is often tempted, when given the opportunity to write a review of a book or series, to trot out a witty observation or comparison that will garner some attention. However, this title and the two titles that preceded it only left me disappointed. Sure, Oppel writes a good stor...
Un objetivo perverso (2014)
4.04 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Once again I was blown away by the uniqueness of this story. Wow. Though Frankenstein and his monster have been around for ages, and thus have had many awful repeats and spin-offs, I can honestly say I have rarely read such a truly enticing tale surrounding a well loved classic.I...
Ein dunkler Wille: Das Schicksal der Brüder Frankenstein (2013)
4.04 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: It must have been fun for Oppel to write his one and only bad boy! It was fun for me to read. But given my last review of one of his stories, I may as well switch things up and complain about his bad habits here.1. A languishing, absent or otherwise invisible mother.2. One meanin...
The King's Taster (2009)
3.71 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This is a terrific story, told from the perspective of a little dog whose owner is also the king's cook. When they get a new king (presumably the old king dies), the cook goes out of his way to prepare scrumptious meals. But as the new king is a little boy, he is picky and hard...
