  "Panther In The Basement"by saboardman (see profile) 12/14/11

This book is a quick read...quite interesting and insightful. Characters are likeable and at times humorous. Very well written, a bit wordy at times, but all in all, a good book.

 
  "The Panther in the Basement"by Ruth (see profile) 12/14/11

The group liked the book overall. Some liked the extensive details while others skipped bits of it. Adolescent main character was believable and appreciated.
