You?ve probably had a few hundred people tell you that the book in your question sounds like "The Fox" [a short novel] by D.H. Lawrence, so let me join them--with the qualification it was old, not New England; all the rest sounds just like "The Fox", if my memory of reading it as a college assignment about 58 years ago is right.

My friend is trying to get me hooked on Steven King, as the author is one of his favorites. I told him to give me the goriest, scariest King novel he owns. He said Desperation could possibly be the most disturbing thing I've ever read, and that it will give me nightmares. Is it really this bad? I've read several Chuck Palahniuk books, which contain plenty of profanity, violence, and inappropriate matter for some ages. I'm sixteen, but very mature for my age. So is my friend.

Does anyone have a chapter by chapter summary of The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carman? I really need it badly for my report. The book has been out of stock for a long time. Thank you very much. You can email it to me at ferrari2006extreme @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

I'd like a honest vote, raise of hands how many of you would pick up a book on werewolves, vampires, magicians or cupid.

I'm looking for a romance novel that I once read and can't get out of my mind, but I've forgotten the name/author. The British rocker father discovered a young daughter he didn't know he had, and took her in from an addicted mother. Later had a young son who was murdered during a party. Family falls apart. Young girl becomes a woman who has bad relationships with men and marries badly. Father emotionally unavailable. She remains close with rock group, especially the bass player. Eventually family comes together only to discover who killed the young boy in tense ending.

Has anyone read the new book "Wade of Aquitaine," by Ben Parris. It's a sci-fi/fantasy book that is available through Amazon right now to read on Kindle. It's a great story that takes the reader on a journey back in time. It is quite a unique story that I would highly recommend to any sci-fi or fantasy fans!

The best book I have read in a very long time is Bats,Brats,and Stats by George Brennan,Jr. A fantastic author with a fantastic childhood baseball story.

Looking for the title of a book read some years ago by a relative. Plot:
Two sisters, one is an artist a sculptress. I think they lived on the East Coast, a New England state, perhaps. Enter a man, and discord.

If you want a good holocaust book, you should read Night by Elie Weisel. It's amazing, but so sad. I've never read the diary of Ann Frank though.
