Mr. Parker had a wonderful way with words. Spenser is as wisecracking as always and takes care of business as always, not even letting a language barrier stand in his way.
Action packed to the end.

Review
Biography of Bertie, Queen Victoria's son, who went on to become King Edward VII. For much of his life, he was Prince of Wales and his mother didn't give him much responsibility, and his idleness led to some difficulties and embarrassing scandals. But he ended up being a respectable king. A very sympathetic look at his life and personality.

Review
Eleventh volume in Ultra-popular shojo manga series about Tohru Honda and her relationships with the Sohma family,who are living under a family curse which causes them to transform into animals from the Chinese Zodiac.Series has taken a much more somber tone which is okay although I hope that it goes back to its' original more comical tone.

Manga series about Jimmy Kudo,an ace high-school detective who is given a mysterious substance by a pair of Nefarious men in black and transformed into a six year old child.This series has managed to retain a fairly high quality through 25 volumes so it is definitely worth giving it a try.
