Unlike other series, each of these gets better than the one before.

The characters develop nicely, giving lots of depth, while the action doesn't slow down much, either. Lots of wrestling and sneakery for boy readers!

Clear rating
This neat little book extols the Psalter.

My second Agatha Christie murder mystery.

The premise is compelling as one by one, the "Ten little indians" on the island are killed. Which of them is doing it? Is someone else there?

My favorite aspect was the conscience haunting and convicting each o

Chaucer's tales are delightful and instructive as to human nature.

I read some of these in college but this is the first time I read them ALL. Yes, some are PG-13 or R rated for their bawdy descriptions. Not having read the secondary literature on Cha
