So sorry to see the bad reviews below! You should the synopsis so you know what you're buying. This is a beautiful book --366 pages long, by the way, that is a great compilation of moments frozen in time. Vintage photos that, at first, may not "say" anything until you read what was written on the back of the photo. Can make you laugh out loud or take your breath away. As a collector of old photos, as an artist, as a person interested in history and culture, I loved this book. And yes, this IS So very "Ransom"!! What an incredible talent you are, Mr. Riggs.

    Not at all what i expected from this Mr. Riggs...RADAR...

    This was not a good book for a Nook. Really hard to read. I was hoping this book would be along the same lines as his 1st novel...RADAR...

    I was so hoping for a real book. I loved this author's previous book. But this one... I am sure that I could have found my own family pictures that were more interesting than these. And to think that I spent $10.99 on this "book". It was only 25 pages!!! What a rip off! Can I get a refund Barnes and Noble????????

    Don't bother

    I wish they would put number of pages where a person could see them. When you pay more than $1.00 you expect to get more than 50 pages. Total waste of good money.

    Horrible

    I can't believe I paid so much money for this crap. This so-called book has 25 pages of found photos but no story. You can't even see all the features of the pictures on the Nook! The person who says 366 pages is obviously referring to a different book than this. I feel cheated. I won't trust this author again. Buyer beware!!!

    The book, if I received it in it's entirety, would get a 5 star

    The book, if I received it in it's entirety, would get a 5 star rating.
    I only received 25 pages.
    So for the book.....Yes.....Loved it!  Right up my alley!  I love old photographs with a hint of history written on the back.
    *****DO NOT BUY THIS PARTICULAR VERSION>>>>IT IS ONLY 25 PAGES*****
    I contacted support and they said they were sending the issue to the content people.  If it is fixable, I will hear from them in 7-10 days, or they offered me a refund.
    I am waiting for the 10 days, as I really was looking forward to this! Why they don't disable this, I don't understand!
