It was getting on toward six o’clock so I thought I’d buy myself a beer and go out and sit in a deck chair by the swimming pool and have a little evening sun.
I went to the bar and got the beer and carried it outside and wandered down the garden toward the pool.
It was a fine garden with lawns and beds of azaleas and tall coconut palms, and the wind was blowing strongly through the tops of the palm trees making the leaves hiss and crackle as though... read the rest here.

Book Review: I enjoyed this book, as it is simply written and easy to understand but is also based on a good idea. There are lots of fun and exciting parts, which are fun to read, but this book also contains few boring descriptions, at the beginning of each chapter, but which are required in each book. This book start with a young genius called Artemis Fowl II, along with his faithful bodyguard Butler, he finds a Holy Book, which tells of mystical creatures called fairies that are supposedly alive today but are living within the earths crust. So he sets out on a quest to find a fairy and kidnap her and only if the other fairies give him a ton of gold will he release her. Will he succeed? I would recommend this book to people who like fiction and fantasy.

Book Review: I personally enjoyed this because it was about my favorite thing to read about people with magical power trying to kill mythological creatures and saving the world, while failing to communicate. I also like most of this authors books and series. This book is full of interesting and boring parts (not a lot of boring ones but like the gooey "I was ordered to kill you but I want to be your girlfriend" parts (yes there is one of those) are stupid). I would recommend this book to people especially people who like mythology.
