    1. To be honest, I made it to pg 66 the end of Chapter 6 and as I started Chapter 7 I realized that this book was going nowhere, fast There was a lot of back forth, a ton of unnecessary detail, too many cliches in too short a timespan, the main character was 1 dimentional and annoying as a character can be The BLOW THINGS UP event a kiss from the accused terrorist, which consumes about 5 pages, and the immediate follow up is not a round the world run from bad people a la _The DaVinci Code_ but a ru [...]


    2. Stasi, new to the fiction scene, brings much attention to herself with this novel Tackling not only the intricacies of active narration and dialogue, but also the nuances of acerbic wit, fact embedding, and keeping the plot moving, she is able to entertain the reader from the get go and keep their attention throughout A storyline torn from the genre of Dan Brown or Sam Bourne, Stasi layers some interesting ideas as she introduces a plethora of characters, whose personas weave themselves together [...]


    3. What a pleasant surprise The description of this book caught my eye and sounded like something I would like, I just didn t know how much I would enjoy this fast paced, detailed read The story opens with Alessandra Russo, an experienced reporter being awakened by her boss to head out immediately to a breaking story of epic proportions Immediately, you pick up on Alessandra s attitude, feisty with a strong personality, headstrong, independent and a little worn out from life Her narration of the st [...]


    4. OMG This is book is a MUST read I should have been traipsing around amusement parks with my child in Florida during my holiday instead I was holed up with this thriller and could not put it down Some of the best novels are written by journalists and this one knocks it out of the ball park Meticulously researched, the premise that a world terrorist on the scale of Osama Bin Ladin or perhaps even bigger may not be who the world religious leaders have come together to crucify as well as nations dur [...]


    5. From Some say Demiel ben Yusef is the world s most dangerous terrorist, personally responsible for bombings and riots that have claimed the lives of thousands Others insist he is a man of peace, a miracle worker, and possibly even the Son of God His trial in New York City for crimes against humanity attracts scores of protestors, as well as media and religious leaders from around the world.Cynical reporter Alessandra Russo heads to the UN hoping for a piece of the action, but soon becomes entang [...]


    6. The Sixth Station by Linda StasiDan Brown meet Sandra Brown This is a novel of the 2nd Coming Alessandra Russo has a Manhattan size chip on her shoulder and a mouth most truck drivers would be ashamed of having She despises hypocrisy and authority equally She finds herself caught up in a millennium old religious conspiracy Demiel ben Yusef is either Satan incarnate or the Son of God Alessandra finds herself trying to discover which This book had a fast pace incongruent with it s thought provokin [...]


    7. Alessandra Russo is a newspaper report She along with a bunch of other reporters are covering one of the biggest stories Terrorist, Demiel ben Yusef is being tried at the United Nations Upon his arrival Demiel stops right in front of Alessandra and kisses her With just one kiss Alessandra s life is changed forever Now she is on the run Usually I try to stray away from books that focus mainly on religion and this also includes fiction books One because I have my own beliefs and two because someti [...]


    8. I got this book for free through first reads Thank you Okai so when I first read the description for this book I must not have noticed the god part So when I started reading this I was not happy I wasn t happy because books about god and what not just are not my thing But I was pleasently surprised I really liked this book It kept me wondering what will happen next I think the author carried out the story pretty well But there is one thing I don t like It felt like things kept being repeated and [...]


    9. This book was billed as similar to the Da Vinci Code, so I was eager to read it I was disappointed The overall premise was too incredible to believe, the author jumped around too much and I found it hard to follow.


    10. I marked this read but I didn t really get very far into it before I quit Interesting plot, I would have liked to have known how it turned out, but the writing was so amateurish that it was a chore to read.


    11. Really it s a good 3.5 Stars for me It kept me interested and has me very much looking forward to book 2 in this series.


    12. I was so excited when I started Linda Stasi s newest novel The Sixth Station Forge 2013 Her voice is wonderful, personal and believable, Her first person narrative pulled me in immediately, putting a human face on the world of journalists who often seem to wallow in a reputation less about seeking truth and about the at all costs rejoinder to that mantra Here, Stasi s main character is a struggling journalist who has had some bad breaks, was out of work for too long and really needs her current [...]


    13. First of all I want to say, I might not be the best person to listen to I only got through about 1 3 of the book before I gave up.So have that in mind when you read this.Unfortunately, this story seemed really farfetched, and I m a sci fi, fantasy reader I thought this book seemed interesting from its summary, so I wanted to give it a shot I appreciated the first person narrative, and I think the plot had merit but it fell short on the execution Maybe there was something I missed, or I just don [...]


    14. It s history on a collision course with current affairs Could Jesus Christ emerge in Manhattan after being cloned from a speck of blood Is it a miracle or a monstrosity That s the fascinating premise of this fun, thrill packed tale It starts with a mysterious kiss Reporter Alessandra Russo is thrust into chasing the story of the millennium and takes you along for a wild ride She s like no other heroine you ve met down to earth with a healthy appetite and a self deprecating humor She cracks jokes [...]


    15. I was fortunate to get an advanced copy of this book I m an avid reader with one rule If the book doesn t draw me in by the end of chapter two, I put it down and never open it again The Sixth Station drew me in after chapter one As a person who spent most of her life living in NY, I felt as if the main character was someone I knew She s tough, sassy and smart I think Linda Stasi did a good job of developing her lead characters some familiar, some exotic, all original It s a thriller that keeps y [...]


    16. I read this because it was on some critic s books to read list Wish I remembered which critic so I won t follow their advice again It s an interesting premise to re tell the New Testament in a modern setting, with cloning, GPS, astronomy, geo politics, etc It s just that this book doesn t do it well The switching back and forth of who was a good guy and who was a bad guy was exhausting, and only added confusion to the story If you need to kill time on an airplane ride, this would be fine If you [...]


    17. Linda Stasi s The Sixth Station is quick paced, fun, and informative all rolled into one I had to write a review after reading some of the other ones Like her or not, the main character is intriguing, abrasive, feisty and fun also rolled into one The entire time I read this book all I kept thinking was what a great movie it would make Stasi s exciting writing style tells a great story and you read it as if you were in a theater plowing through a bucket of popcorn You can t stop You can t put it [...]


    18. I could not put it down from the first page it draws you in.I am a huge reader and this was so different and exciting was really a pleasure It is one of those books that stays with you for days and you are sorry when its over The characters were so life like I felt like I had new friends and they are characters I hope to see in future bookske we do Alex Deleware and Dr.Scarpetta.The plot had me guessing from beginning to end and the final ending was a real shocker.I will say no to give it away [...]


    19. I wanted to read this book as I m a fan of Linda Stasi s TV Review in the New York Post Alessandra Russo, like Ms Stasi, comes across as a quick witted, street smart reporter with a terrific sense of humor and no nonsense attitude As much as I enjoyed the storyline, I was very impressed with the historical background, which I believe took Ms Stasi several years to research However, all that work pays off, and I hope this is the first of many novels from her Readers of this novel are in for one h [...]


    20. Gripping, amusing, fast paced adventure inspired by tragic and terrifying current events and religious history Written by a reporter who knows what it feels like to be on the run in great looking shoes From the steps of the UN to the Vatican and so many hot spots in between, this suspenseful novel creates a memorable character, move over Dan Brown


    21. I Won a Signed copy of this book as a first read It was a very controversial read and very well written and researched I truly enjoyed reading this intriguing adventure Kudos to Lind Stasi for not only delivering a wonderful story but an educating experience.


    22. Fast paced, easy read, riding the coat tails of Dan Brown It started out well enough, and got me interested, but fizzled out towards the end Like a well made dinner, the dessert was predictable and a let down.


    23. Riveting A real nail biter laced with history, politics, religion And romance Can t wait to see the movie version Who will play Alessandra Russo This is a must read



    24. This book is written by a catholic about catholic things I am not a catholic Apparently a very icon based religion where things have a spirituality all their own An interesting story but too much use of obscure issues for those unfamiliar with the religion Would appeal to those who enjoyed Rosemary s Baby and the Da Vinci Code series.


    25. What a bizarre, but intriguing, tale There is a unique yet feasible premise, and a fast moving story reminiscent of a Dan Brown novel Yes, I love Dan Brown novels There was some suspension of disbelief necessary, yet well worth it for the overall story and conclusion I ll read Alexandra Russo novels, since this was 1 I really want 2 NOW


    26. Horrible I would give this book negative stars if possible Only read the first three pages Switched from first person to third person and back So full of sex and vulgar language on the first pages, simply not point in continuing Absolutely Awful


    27. I finished this book mainly because I really hate to give up on a book, but honestly I didn t really care for it I didn t really like the protagonist or the story Should have stopped as soon as I realized I didn t care for the premise of the story.


    28. Alessandra Russo is a smart, sassy journalist who loses jobs because of her cynical, snide comments but she s a true journalist who will do anything for a story, anything But her life in search of the award winning story is about to go ballistic Alessandro gets pulled into the middle of a crowd of thousands awaiting the arrival of Demiel ben Yusef for his trial For he is accused of being a terrorist responsible for the murder and horrific suffering of people around where bombs have changed the l [...]


    29. I learned about this book via the giveaway section of , when I put it on my want to read list December 2012 , I finally decided it was time to clear that list up a bit What did I expect from this book I really wasn t positive The book has its own website which begins with Some say Demiel ben Yusef is the world s most dangerous terrorist, personally responsible for bombings and riots that have claimed the lives of thousands Others insist he is a man of peace, a miracle worker, and possibly even t [...]
