David Baldacci’s latest book, “Long Road to Mercy,” is a bit of a disappointment. The plot stretched my ability to suspend reality from the beginning when his newest character, FBI agent Atlee Pine, has to stop a crime—involving nuclear war no less—t ...more

The only reason I read “Pieces of Her” all the way through is because it was written by Karin Slaughter, one of my favorite authors. Unfortunately, with this book, she made an unforgivable error: I found not a single character likable, sympathetic, o ...more

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
