The Prisoner by Alex Berenson
"I always suffer from fatigue after reading an Alex Berenson novel because I can’t put it down and go to bed. This story was another in the John Wells series, and like the others it is action packed with a fast pace and up to date events to add to..." Read more of this review »
The Prisoner by Alex Berenson
"One of my favorite authors, been a fan since the beginning. This is my favorite Wells book since his debut, The Faithful Spy. It's going back to basics - undercover with terrorists in a foreign land. I don't want to give too much of the plot away,..." Read more of this review »
The Prisoner by Alex Berenson
"John Wells has to unmask a CIA mole and in order to do so he has to resume his old identity as a al Qaeda jihadi. Years ago John was the only agent who could penetrate the organization. Now, he must go back and try to find out who is passing secre..." Read more of this review »

The Trespasser by Tana French

Consider this a review on a curve - a harder-than-normal curve - because Tana French is excellent, among the best contemporary crime writers around. Maybe the best on a sentence-by-sentence basis. And as a rule she puts compelling characters in stran ...more

City of Thieves by David Benioff

I'd been meaning to read City of Thieves for a while -- it has a wonderful reputation -- and when I finally did it didn't disappoint. It manages to evoke the horrors of a starving Leningrad during WWII without being completely depressing. Yes, Lev's ...more

To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris

First 100 pages are great and then Ferris runs out of things to say. Could have been a wonderful short story. By the end even he seems bored and anxious to move on...

Better than Istanbul Passage, at least to me. A thoughtful evocation of post-war Berlin, and if the coincidences do pile up, they pay off at the end. One of the best last lines I've ever read...

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Rate this book
Clear rating
Deserves all the praise it's received. Moving without being treachly, well-plotted without being a slave to action, with characters who are both unique and universal. And beautifully written, too.

Yeah, I'm jealous...

“Rosette disappeared onto the dance floor. Wells sat in silence for a minute, watching the dancers. The worldwide cult of fast money spent stupidly. The worldwide cult of trying too hard. Moscow, Rio, Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York, London, Shanghai--the story was the same everywhere. The same overloud music, the same overpromoted brand names, the same fake tits, about as erotic as helium balloons. Everywhere an orgy of empty consumption and bad sex. Las Vegas was the cult's world headquarters, Donald Trump its patron saint. Wells had spent ten years in the barren mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan. He never wanted to live there again. But if he had to choose between an eternity there or in the supposed luxury of this club, he'd go back without a second thought.”
Alex Berenson, The Silent Man

“Always wrong but never in doubt.”
Alex Berenson, The Faithful Spy

“Afternoon. I’m Rick. What can I do you for today?” “Put the preposition in the right place.”
Alex Berenson, Twelve Days
