I love being "caught" by surprise. When I get to the last page of a book and find a 180 degree change in direction, I am delighted. This book has that and more. It is essentially about corruption, about lies, about secrets, about misdirection and, fo ...more

It all began here for David Baldacci. Sometime back I listened to an interview where he talked about his years of writing part-time while working a paying job. According to the narrative, this novel was to be his last attempt at breaking into the fie ...more

Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a sequel to Wicked, a delightful book filled with memorable characterizations from Elphaba's past. But, alas, Son of a Witch is not nearly as enjoyable. While it starts out strong it quickly gets bogged down in Oz politics - pretty boring stu ...more

If I could give this book 10 stars it would not be enough to adequately express how this book affected me. In 2007, I read Three Cups of Tea by the same author and was blown away. What Greg Mortenson and the Central Asia Institute (CAI) are doing in ...more

This fall I read three of Clive Cussler's adventure novels: Artic Drift (3), Corsair and Medusa (3). While I like Dirk Pitt and Kurt Austin, I find Juan Cabrillo and his "Oregon" crew to be the most eclectic and fun. The main plot of Corsair centers ...more

Historical fiction is my forte. I loved reading about the British navy as it took on missions in the Carolinas during the Revolutionary War. This is the first of a series of 13 books with Nathaniel Drinkwater as the main character. I plan to read the ...more
