I have been privileged to have lunch at Le Bernardin on one occasion and it was everything I had hoped for. It was fascinating to read the back story on Eric Ripert's development as a chef. Like so many overachievers, he lost his father when he was v ...more
Robert B. Parker's Slow Burn by Ace Atkins
"This felt sorta dialed-in. Ace Atkins has done a really good job at keeping the feel of the Parker books, and in staying loyal to the characters. There are no sins in this book, but the story was just sorta blah. It's a look into what Spenser is d..." Read more of this review »
Robert B. Parker's Slow Burn by Ace Atkins
"I would, oh wait a minute--yyyaaawwwnnn, I am so sorry--but I couldn't help the really big yawn back there. For I just finished the Ace Atkins version of what a Robert B. Parker book is. It wasn't. It wasn't even close. It wasn't even barely in th..." Read more of this review »
Robert B. Parker's Slow Burn by Ace Atkins
"Never have I given a Spenser book less than 5 stars but here goes. When Ace Atkins picked up the Spenser baton after Parker died, I was delighted. I could hear Parker in Atkins books.. until now. Slow Burn doesn't have the crisp pace and snappy di..." Read more of this review »

I said this about the last one, Kickback, and I'll say it again. Despite my attachment to this series, Atkins seems to be out of ideas and phoning the series in. This installment lacked any suspense whatsoever and the dialogue would make Parker roll ...more

What a depressing picture of Russia the author paints - rampant alcoholism, corruption, pollution, bigotry, censorship. She seems to have done a fine job of speaking with Russian citizens and brave crusaders to draw this portrait. Today's Russia seem ...more

Extreme Prey by John Sandford
Rate this book
Clear rating
The premise was cliched, but it didn't matter a lick. Sandford wrote the hell out of this. He's moved the setting to Iowa, but that worked just fine. Lucas is traipsing around Iowa investigating a plot to assassinate a presidential candidate. He stru ...more

Independence Day by Ben Coes
Independence Day (Dewey Andreas, #5)

Pretty much non-stop action, some of it rather far-fetched. Nevertheless, a page-turner all the way with lots of villains, computer hackers and intrigue. Great entertainment.

Written in Bone by Simon Beckett
Rate this book
Clear rating
Until the very end of the book, it was quite an engrossing and well-executed tale, but then it got too complicated by half, stretching credulity. We have Dr. Hunter, a forensic medical examiner, going to a remote Scottish aisle to investigate a myste ...more

How to Live by Sarah Bakewell
Rate this book
Clear rating
I was instilled with a deep respect for Montaigne when I first read him in college. Good essayists are a rare breed so his place as the father of the genre is notable. Bakewell does an excellent job of coalescing Montaigne's life with the Essays. She ...more
