People Who Eat Darkness by Richard Lloyd Parry

A great read. I never heard of the case. It was amazingly detailed. Maybe too detailed. In my opinion, it could have been cut down by 100 pages or so. However, I still could not put the book down. My heart goes out to all the families involved. The b ...more

Killing Patton by Bill O'Reilly
Rate this book
Clear rating
I enjoyed the book. It doesn't really get into the possible assassination of Patton. It starts off with the possibility because he had made a lot of enemies. The rest of the book is a gloss over of Patton's exploits and correspondence with his wife a ...more

It was ok. It was fun to have Reacher in Europe. A little different. The 1st 1/3 was very good. The middle kind of dragged a bit and the last 1/3 was kind of anti climatic. I am a fan of the Reacher books. But some books are better than others. It st ...more

A very entertaining book. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the story. It started off a little slow but picked up and became a real page turner.

It was an excellent read. I heard about it through various sources but was never compelled to go read it until Jeff Cannata raved about it on YouTube. The character was great! Very funny and clever. The story would make a great movie. The only issues ...more

Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell
Rate this book
Clear rating
It was a book that touched me. I can't say I "enjoyed" the book. It was a harrowing and sad event. I was reluctant for a while to read the book. I can't put my finger on why I was reluctant, but I am now more touched by the jobs our service men and ...more
Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell
"I already reviewed this on Amazon...but here's my take on it, anyway:

Do not listen to 1-star reviews of this book by those taking on elitist attitudes towards the lack of flowery adjectives and fluff. It's more likely the writer's politics that bo..." Read more of this review »
