Sniper One

Darkside (Becker) Vrs Neverwhere (Gaiman)

Take a careful look at these covers- could it be the same book, by different authors?

We decided that these two books, while they are similar, are not copies. Darkside, which came after Neverwhere, seem sto have some similar plot elements adn characters, but that is most likely because Tom Becker probably read Neverwhere during the writing proecess. Even though teh covers UNCANNILY similar - Darkside is not a carbon, dummed down, copied version.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney

This book is about a teenager named Greg. The book recounts (in a funny way) how students interact with friends in school...often showing conflicts in an ironic way.

I found this book to be a very pleasant and relaxing read. It is a nice change of pace from all teh serious, dramatic books I have been reading. It leaves you with a smile on your face and a lifted heart!
