When I first started reading The Bad, The Good and the Two Fly Fishing Women I noticed that this was going to be a story that would change the lives of the those who read it , even if it was in just a very small way. Kadish beautifully portrayed the beautiful relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter. In such a way that I believe many of us have or wished that we had. Kadish also teaches us that time can help heal all wounds, it may not heal completely but the hurt will lessen as time passes by and you learn to forgive but not necessarily forget.
If I had one criticism of this story that would be that besides Amanda and her Grandmother, the rest the characters of this long story are really undeveloped for me. And while I understand that the focus is on the relationship that was cemented through this bonding actability of fly- fishing. I feel that if these other characters where more developed along with their relationship with Amanda. This could not just be a long story but it could easily be turned into a novel if Randy Kadish choose it to do so. That being said I would be one of the first to read it.

There is no debate that Muhammad had eleven wives, it's written in all the history books Aliya Anjum does a great job in giving a great account if each wife. Along with being able to describe how the the actions of Muhammad help shape how the modern Muslim man is suppose to act today according to their faith
Anjum also puts on the record the theory that Muhammad took a underage wife (Ayesha) at the age of six and then when she was the age nine took her and consummated the marriage. That being said Anjum believes in her opinion that Ayesha was more like 18 when she started living with Muhammad. She also supports this opionion with some known facts.
I am some what of a history buff and like to read about historical facts, which Anjum did a great job of recounting the facts. I for one like to read about those facts in more of a story fashion, where Muhammad's Wives is written in the list fashion. This is a personal preference and in no way does it reflect the writing of this book. If you are a history buff, then you might want to look at Muhammad's wives.
We are know about the vampire craze and that other vampire book( Which we will not mention). Vampyre Kisses while being the same premise and even the same plot theme of a girl having two potential love interest, that is where the similarity stops. I just love the way that the author portrays Faith and throughout the book you fee l as though you are right there as Faith comes into her own woman even though she is a young adult and a witch. Faith is not the only character that Kolodziej
developed superbly Trent is a very complex, mysterious but very loyal he will not stop at anything to protect Faith. There are also many other characters that Kolodziej develops through out the plot so well that you feel like you could be right there hanging out with them or even fighting battle with them. I loved all the characters or I loved to hate them whatever the case might be.
I fell in love with both Faith and Trent along with many of the other characters and can't wait to read what Elizabeth Kolodziej has she continues writing more adventures using these characters. If you love vampires then you will love Vampyre Kisses.
I can not wait to read the second book Werewolf Decendant.
