Zebra Books, 2010
Loved this book!
I have read all the Sisterhood books and had fun reading this newest one also. I feel that the characters are my neighbors and love all the excitement in their lives. I recommend this book to all who keep up with the Sisterhood.
Bethany House, 2007
Ripping good read. gets a little muddled near the end but he pulls it out ok. I like the careful way he builds a sympathetic character and then just as carefully turns them into villains.
Things Fall Apart: A Novel
How it is and was
Other reviewers have given excellent synopses, so as someone who has lived in Nigeria, I'll just give an opinion. This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how life was and to a great degree still is, in rural Nigeria. It is wonderfully written, stark, brutally honest and making no excuses because that is how life is.
Kensington Books, 2010
She is over 200 years old. Her name is Octavia Voss, and she is an Opera Diva renowned around the world. Her voice is that of an angel, sweet, yet powerful. Her resonance comes from the very blood that flows through her delicate veins, the blood of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The maestro's music, his memories, his every thought and stroke of genius, has poured through Octavia's heart forever since ...
Light of Eidon (Legends of the Guardian-King, Book 1)
Bethany House, 2003
too much religious association
i really wanted to read this book however when karen mentioned that god had published the book i stopped in my tracks. i have no qualms with christian authors but come on be realistic either write an amazing book of fiction or write an amazing book of nonfiction dealing with some facet of religion.
Love Comes Softly (Love Comes Softly Series, Book 1)
Bethany House Publishers, 1979
I now have this complete set of books. I read this book in one day it was beautiful and smooth reading. Janette Oke is amazing and the saga keeps going in the "Prairie Legacy" series. If you purchase the "Love comes Softly" series then you really need to buy the "Prairie legacy" ones as well. You will be blessed and amazed as you you follow the Davis family story.
Best Friends Forever: A Novel
Another good book by Weiner
Despite reading the negative reviews before buying this book, I purchased it. I've really loved all of Weiner's books and I was excited to read this one. I really liked it and would recommend it to other Jennifer Weiner fans.
William P. Young
I'm not going to tell you that this book is for everyone. I didn't even think it was really for me. There were places in it where I actually cringed. But I can tell you that I had a renewed since of hope when I closed the book. I also understood something that has troubled me my entire life and that's how God loves everyone...even people who do terrible things. The story is thought provoking ...

Nan A. Talese, 2009
I Love this Book
I saw Pat Conroy at the Carter Library in Atlanta and received my signed copy that I went home and started reading that night. Even though I have two kids, a full time job, and a small business I still found (made) time to read this book in only a few days. I absolutely loved this book. I love the way Conroy writes, the way he develops his characters, and the emotion and heart he puts into ...
The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet: A Novel
Random House, 2010
Another Triumph for Mitchell
Fair warning: I am a huge David Mitchell fan. That said, it is an admiration that has been fairly won by the author. With his elliptical plot lines and superb writing, I have eagerly awaited the novel that became "The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet" since devouring the superb "Black Swan Green" four years ago. Gladly, it did not disappoint, although it certainly represented something of a ...
Return of the Guardian-King (Legends of the Guardian-King, Book 4)
Bethany House, 2007
A worthy conclusion to an epic adventure
Karen Hancock brings her tremendously satisfying Guardian King series to a worthy conclusion. Return of the Guardian King gets off to a slow start, because Hancock must catch us up on everything that happened between the end of Book 3 and the beginning of Book 4. Once we are up to speed, the story proceeds apace through a dense maze of twists and turns. Some of the twists are predicable (the ...
Proper Pursuit, A
Bethany House, 2007
Fantastic romance with the World's Fair in Chicago as a backdrop.
A Proper Pursuit covers so many topics it's hard to know where to begin. I loved how Violet got to experience all walks of life to some degree while staying in Chicago. Violet have several eccentric aunts and a grandmother who did a lot of work with the poor. One had dementia, another was a feminist, another highly religious, and another had married for money and tolerated her husband's ...
Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 3: Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness (v. 3)
Bryan Lee O'Malley
The One Where It Becomes GREAT
I started to read the series some years ago, with this book's release, and have been following ever since. With the final book being released, I'm rereading and reviewing the earlier books. The humor, action, and drama have finally come into perfect balance in this volume. O'Malley's line work has come to the high level that we'll see through the rest of the series. The characters are more ...
Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 2: Scott Pilgrim Versus The World (v. 2)
Bryan Lee O'Malley
An awesome fight
The Scott Pilgrim series of books is the type that you will find yourself reading over and over for years to come, lending out individual volumes to friends all the while. This book, the second in the series, is where the author really finds his voice and lets the characters grow. We get some back story on the past relationship of Scott Pilgrim and Kim Pine as well as an early glimpse of many ...
Daughter of Joy (Brides of Culdee Creek, Book 1)

Eager to make a new start, she interviews for the position of Conor MacKay's cook/housekeeper and his daughter's teacher.

Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse
Ulysses Press, 1999
a fountain of information
This is a novel but also a training manual and a technical manual. It brings up all kinds of things you may not nave thought about and shows you your areas of weakness in preparation, equipment, or knowledge base. I am now reading it for the second time. I have loaned it to one person and will loan it to others. Not a true novel, but more of an instruction manual. Get a copy.
The Old Man and The Sea
Listen to Samuel Barber's adaggio for strings. Hear it symphonically accompany the climb of a man toward a stunning achievement, then falter for an instant, rise again for a moment, but then collapse, never again to recover the great heights once so briefly achieved. But it continues in muted form, heroically playing to completion, and then dies, the man's greatness and courage ...
Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life
Bryan Lee O'Malley
Loved every single page of this book.
Very satisfied with Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life. It introduced me to the SP universe. I've read all the books since buying this one. Can't wait forthe sixth and final book! Loads of video game references and funny moments. It's an awesome read. Looking forward to the movie.
Simon & Schuster
My favorite novel, ever
Joseph Heller nails it. While at first it seems a chaotic mess of dark situational humor and commentary of the state of war, main characters (dozens!), and time-jumping, a wonderful pattern is found in it all. Read it through twice: first to find out why Orr was getting hit in the head by a shoe-wielding prostitute, then again to understand why there were crabapples in his cheeks. What a ...
Bell Bridge Books, 2009
This is a wonderful read. I was born in West Virginia and can fully relate to the mountains, hollers and being dirt poor. This story definitely reminded very much of my own life many years ago. I look forward to reading more from this author.
