Overall a very enjoyable book. One of the main characters who is supposed to be some amazing detective, and a master of disguise. The master of disguise bit serves no purpose in the story other than to show how awesome the character is. The murders that are being solved are tied to the...

Mindy takes us along on her re-telling of her life and career thus far up (to 2011, the time of the book's publication). Listening to her talk about her childhood, young adulthood and career. I listened to the audio book read by the author. I think it was more satisfying to listen to her telling...
This last installment of the Divergent series was unrelenting. Roth paints a beautiful and visceral world with only her words, and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the story. Roth has done an incredible job of creating characters with whom we can relate and fall in love--and...
This book may change the way you look at the world around you.
Brave New World is a frequently challenged and ban book. I chose to read it because its content is challenging to the reader. It is considered a Classic written in 1931 because of its staying power to influence. I found...
From the book jacket: "Beka Cooper is a rookie with the law-enforcing Provost's Guard, and she's been assigned to the Lower City. It's a tough beat that's about to get tougher, as Beka's limited ability to communicate with the dead clues her in to an underworld conspiracy. Someone close to Beka...
I know I don't need to promote the current Dan Brown book, Inferno, Dan Brown has plenty of fans and followers. What I am promoting is reading Dan Brown's books in the format of an eBook. First I want to say I did enjoy the Inferno Book. It's about a topic that I can get preachy about! So thanks...
As close as you'll likely get in literary form to seeing the devastation that bipolar disorder wreaks on those who live with it and among it.
Tired of post-apocalyptic fiction? Try some pre-apocalyptic noir whodunit. Instead of asking how you would survive, this book asks, what would you do if you knew the world was ending in six months? Detective Hank Palace keeps investigating a suspicious suicide while the most of...
These short stories are in turn funny, odd, and heartbreaking. Saunders is original and that's about the best description.
Ford's writing is elegant and this novel causes you to feel deeply for the young protagonist. Besides, I love books that include North Dakota.
Really just a very lovely novel, it's also a fascinating look at love and life in a Midwestern town of Native Americans and German immigrants.
This book has been pretty popular so doesn't need another review here but I wouldn't be honest if I didn't put this on my favorite book list.
Ferris manages to capture the inane antics, politics, and the full round of emotions that surface in an office setting. His debut novel is humorous, and while the plot as a whole may be a little unlikely, vignettes are right on the mark.
Rose and Ruby, conjoined twins, share their individual and combined stories in a lovely novel that is both subtle and dramatic.
Is it the characters or the Western landscape that makes this book so compelling? Compared to Wallace Stegner accurately, Doig weaves a story about early twentieth century Montana you easily picture in your mind with characters who become your friends.
Turns out the human capacity to eat anything and everything has caused problems ranging from obesity to global warming. Michael Pollan spins the information so fast and furiously you can barely keep up and yet it's all so interesting you just keep reading.
Ironically, I read this in eBook format on my Palm, technology that seems to have simplified my life. Hmmm... Food for thought, this is Brende's account of his experiment with simplifying his life in a community using less technology than the Amish. The story is engaging and will prompt you to...
