I received John F. Ross’s “Enduring Courage” (St. Martin’s, 2014) through a Goodreads Advance Readers contest and enjoyed the biography of Eddie Rickenbacker. It is interesting to note that most everyone has heard the name Rickenbacker, but not many...more

“Dear Leader” (37INK/Atria, 2014) by Jang Jin-Sung was really two stories in a single narrative. One concerned a view of the inner workings of North Korean society, and the other told of the author’s journey to freedom from North to South Korea via C...more

“Twilight For the Gods” (William Sloane, 1956) by Ernest Gann was my first venture into this prolific author’s work. Found a dented first edition at the Newberry Library Book Sale for $2 … bought it, read it, liked it. This story is about a seafaring...more

Another nice and tight crime novel from Bauer. Once again she introduces her characters, paints them beautifully, and moves them through the scenes with ease. This is her second crime novel and was a wonderful follow up to her first foray - Blackland...more

“We Were Liars” (Delacorte, 2014) by E. Lockhart is a nice offering in the suspense genre. It keeps you going and has a reveal you most likely won’t guess…making it even more delightful.

The storyline follows a 17 year old girl – one of a number of co...more

Clear rating
“Missions of Fire and Mercy” (Self-published, 2010) by William E. Peterson is a neat little Vietnam War book written by a guy who was there. Rating it took some give and take. As to story it is a five star tale…but it was in a three star package, so...more

Pledged by Alexandra Robbins
Rate this book
Clear rating
“Pledged” (Hyperion, 2004) by Alexandra Robbins is interesting - in a voyeuristic sort of way. What is that word that means superficial and empty, and has a couple of Us in it?

Supposedly a tell-all on sororities, I suspect that everything the author...more
