- The Scarab
on June 10, 2011
he Scarab by Scott Alan Rhine
Reviewed by Rusty Swain
The Scarab by Scott Alan Rhine. What a ride this book takes you on. From the very first page there is a almost instant bonding with the Ethan. The technology that he develops borders on the realm of reality and it didn't take me long to actually believe that this was all possible. From another viewpoint, his medical condition of H...emophilia allows the reader to understand him and the decisions that he makes. The legal journey that he goes on is enough to make anyone want to sit back and take a look at their own investments. And then of course there is his relationship with Mary Anne. I don't want to say that this is a "guy" book, but to me it would certainly draw more of a male audience.
All in all it reads well, the flow never breaks and the storyline is interesting enough to hold a readers attention to the end. It did mine.
- The Days and Months We Were First Born- The Unraveling
on June 11, 2011
This book grabs you from the first page and it never stops. A story that keeps you at the edge of your seat and is darn hard to put down. The character, Martin, grabs your attention and before long, into your heart. The atmosphere is intense at times, and yet at others, your heart aches for the people involved. All in all a wonderful book! I believe that Christopher is on his way to being a well known author whose books will fly off the shelves.
- Pillow Talk
on June 16, 2011
It amazed me - it had me tearing at the end - which I don't usually do. There are, as the other reviewers says, plenty of clues that have you doing a face to palm reaction when you do reach the end (and don't cheat and ruin it by going there first!) It just makes me want to read more by this very talented writer.
- White Christmas Pansies
on Feb. 01, 2012
It caught my heart, and I had to smile about the confusion over Christmas Pansies. It's a sweet little story of how just about the time you think a marriage is over, something from the past knocks you on the head and makes you remember the love that was there - and was always there. I could go on about how too many people give up on marriage too quickly, maybe all they need are - Christmas Pansies.
