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.

I enjoyed the book. Not as much as others according to the scores. It was a little light for me. I never read 1000 pages faster so I did enjoy it but it wasn't as in depth or intricately plotted as I would have liked. I enjoyed the Kaladin chapters a ...more

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

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 »

This was a serviceable Joe Pickett book. It was a tad predictable. Wasn't as engaging as some of his past Pickett books. He hit all the right notes but it seemed like he mailed this one in. The very ending was a good twist that I wasn't expecting I w ...more
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
"I know what Cheryl felt like on the Pacific Crest Trail because I felt like that reading her book. Neverending. Arduous. But without that whole enlightenment part.

I happened to be looking through Netflix for something to watch and found the movie with Guy Pearce. I have always enjoyed Guy's work and gave the movie a tumble. I liked the film so much that I decided to read the book. It was a fun read. The charac ...more
