David McCullough again brings history to life in "The Wright Brothers." My limited knowledge of their history left me with the impression that these bicycle builders had pedaled their way into the air for a few seconds once on the Carolina coast, and ...more

"The Stranger" is one of those books that I should have read as a student, but never did. As an older, even "elderly" person, I'm not so sure it was a good idea. Other reviewers say they're glad they read or re-read it preliminary to reading "The Meu ...more

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books are always a pleasant interlude, even when, as here, the issues Mma Ramotswe and her colleagues face are serious ones such as domestic violence, immigration fraud, and unemployment. Smith blends them so effort ...more

The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

The only thing keeping this book from 5 stars is its very slow beginning. I'd urge the Goodreads reviewer who gave it one star to persevere: it's well worth it. Not only does the pace pick up, but the reader's involvement in the story deepens as well ...more

A real page turner! The pace of the novel makes it hard to put down and the even, flat, almost cold tone makes the subject all the more chilling. Nearly 800 pages of plot can be summarized as "master spy saves US from master terrorist, but only at th ...more
