Hollywood’s: #Oscar So Sad

Myke Simon from Upsplash
It was a weak year for films—at least that was my feeling. Even the newest Star Wars saga was just good…not really up to the standard I expect. But, hey…it was fun at least. However, the three films accorded the most nominations by the Oscar voters were anything but fun. I’m referring to The Joker, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and The Irishman.
With these films,... Read more of this blog post »

Grisham never fails to enthrall me. This novel is one of his “causes’—much like “The Innocent Man.” I found this work a platform for Grisham to cover the many methods that the justice system fails to deliver and worse how it destroys men and women ...more

Not quite at the level of her first two novels but close--and they were very good. In this, the protagonist is not as likable and the story bogs down and drags . However, it has a big finish and a classic denoument.

“The San Diego Union's Karla Peterson reviews Local author Robert Pacilio's newest novel:
"Meet Me at Moonlight Beach" is not a romance novel, but there is a lot of love in it.
There is the slow-burning attraction between yoga instructor Noelani Keoka and high-school teacher Lewis Bennett, two broken people brought together by their psychiatrist, Dr. Amos Adler, who is close enough to retirement to put his patients' potential happiness before pesky professional ethics. There are the beautifully supportive marriages between Adler and his wife, the straight-talking May; and between Noelani's longtime friends, Dee and Henry.
And then there is the great, late-blooming love that the author has for Encinitas, which gave the novel its title and its evocative setting.”

Robert Pacilio “Maddie, Mickey, Rhia, and Pari are so real I actually can see them sitting in any classroom. Students will relate to their diverse life experiences and their common bond of needing to make sense of it all. They will see parts of themselves in the characters and feel that the diaries are a true window into the sometimes confusing journey through high school life. Teachers will be challenged and inspired by Mr. Buscotti’s brilliant example of one way to be a responsible and caring guide on that journey.”

Linda Englund, Ed.D., A.P. English Teacher, Former English Chair
