Wow! May I say that for someone who wrote a review that had me - in itself- spellbound, about a book that you classify as "exemplary" -it must indeed be "out of this world" to read! Thank you! As a newbie, I'm not sure I could ever match your literary skills, but you've certainly set a bar to aspire to!

Latest Review: That Place of Knowledge by Philip Alan Shalka

I gauge an author's writing skills if he could make the readers visualize the scenes as if they are real, especially if the genre is fantasy where out of this world characters and places abound. Based on the positive reviews, I think the author succeeded.

I like the review, the book doesn't fit my taste but I wouldn't mind a motion picture version of the book (series).

The featured review is amazing. Historical facts and fiction. I'm not sure if I'll read it. It sounds very interesting.

Any book about the ' holiest city ' in the world is always marked with heart rising tension especially when it deals to historical events of the city , which is the most disputed city in the planet . .
