5.0 out of 5 stars Top hard salsa... best yet?, 8 Oct 2008
This review is from: NYC Salsa 3 (Audio CD)
For any lover of that classic hard new york sound this must be an essential part of any salsa lover's collection. If you are looking for some more great tracks from some of Latin musics best performers this album will delight you.

For a beginner (along with NYC & NYC2) this is an excellent introduction this gives you a chance to experience some of salsa's best!


Cast in Shadow (Chronicles of Elantra)
Cast in Shadow (Chronicles of Elantra)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun fantasy read, 6 April 2008
I really enjoyed this book. It has some very interesting characters and a story line that just keeps you reading. Michelle Sagara's style is easy to access and has some witty dialogue. The story has a darker mysterious side which is not all resolved by the end of the book. Which means that there is lots to look forward to in next books in the series.

So, if you are looking for something that is as fully realised as Tolkien you may be disappointed.

But for a fun and enjoyable read that looks as if there is plenty of material for future stories this is a must read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of style, not enough narrative, 17 Mar 2008
I have always enjoyed Gene Wolfe's fluent and somewhat ethereal style of writing and, while the Wizard has all the hallmarks of Wolfe I was little disappointed. There was just not enough narrative - the whole thing was very slow moving. Half way through I found myself asking "Are we still in the Giants' castle?" I think the both the first two books could have been reduced to one volume.

That said there are (as always in a Gene Wolfe book), excellent writing, some interesting ideas and reworking of myth. I will certainly want to read the Wizard Knight.
