A beautifully written and powerfully moving book whose message in the end might be "war is very ugly." I doubt that I could have made myself read about the Nigerian Civil War and the tragedy of Biafra if it were not for the wonderfully drawn characte...more

I took this with me on a week-long vacation because of a hearty recommendation by a fellow reader -- I need to find her and thank her for her excellent suggestion! Who'd have thought I would so enjoy a book about a passion for boxing?! A good coming-...more

I hang my head in shame that I put off reading this for so long because it was published as a 'Young Adult' novel -- it took a library book discussion to make me pick it up. Should have read it long ago: I could have re-read it a couple of times by n...more

Having just re-read Ariana Franklin's "Mistress of the Art of Death" (a all-time favorite!) I decided it was time to see what the author's historical fiction written under her OWN name was like -- and I conclude that it's different but thoroughly enj...more

What a treat to discover a wonderful book I missed completely when it came out -- and what a bigger treat to realize it is the first of a series and that I'll have even MORE happy reading in months to come! I spent a week of miserably cold New Englan...more

Greek tragedy with an Indian accent. This is a beautifully written book about a wealthy Parsi woman and her poor servant in contemporary India -- powerful and moving, but the story would break your heart.

Wicked Pleasure by Lora Leigh

There's a place on everybody's bookshelf for a bit of good erotica, but this is not it. I can't for the life of me figure out why this woman's writing is so popular: this is angst-ridden teen melodrama with a lot of unrealistic sex thrown in. Everybo...more

Ahhh. . . a real treat of a read and a worthy follow-up to his 2011 book "The Hum and the Shiver." This man can't write fast enough to please me: I want MORE about his fantastical 'Tufa' people in the the Tennessee mountains. This is clever, creative...more
