I think this is the third time I've read this book and what I noticed this time is that it tends to drag a bit in the middle. But more than that I was reminded what a grand charact ...more "

Rate this book

This wonderfully written book is a real treat for anyone who remembers -- or wishes they knew -- Halifax "in the old days". I don't go back to the Fifties, but Halifax Nocturne brought to mind the Halifax of my youth. Laffoley nicely captures the aur ...more

This is a really ambitious first novel, and Alison Delory is to be congratulated on tackling four such vastly different settings -- Cape Breton, Alberta, Syria and Turkey -- in a single novel. She has captured these places wonderfully and populated t ...more

The Black Echo by Michael Connelly

I'm going back and rereading the Harry Bosch books, from the start. It's great fun to see how Connelly started his fiction career. He had a deft touch from the outset.

The Testament by John Grisham
"An overly preachy and hastily written Grisham novel with his typical battle of big money versus the good of heart. I am always drawn to Grisham for a good rainy day read and the premise sounded pretty good, but from page one this one is a waste of ti" Read more of this review »

The Story of World War II by Donald L. Miller
Rate this book
Clear rating
Miller's research was fantastic but this book was simply too focused on the American war between '41 and '45. They called it a "World War" for a reason, and this book simply brushed over too much of the conflict that didn't involve America. This book ...more
