Al "Tank" (alkalar) | 280 comments Okay, I'll start:

Global Domination for Beginners by Will Once Global Domination for Beginners by Will Once.

I just finished this book. Surprisingly pleasant, even though the humor is "Brit humor", which usually goes over my head. But I caught most of it in this delightful "read".

Here's my review:

I don't mind large books, but I don't much like "slow" books, especially if they "plod". Like Bored of the Rings.

Reading a manuscript for a friend. It put me to sleep in my recliner last night. I don't know if it was me or the book (I suspect the latter). We'll see.

message 9: by Scott (new)

Scott Skipper | 49 comments Edge of Eternity, Ken Follet's third in his trilogy about the twentieth century. It is also quite long, as were the first two, but it is not slow in any way.

I've just started it, and it's pulling me in.

Devi Nair (views_she_writes) Just finished Sinister which is a YA book, somewhere on the lines of Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl and Curveball which is a romance novel but with an amazing twist. Had fun with both.

message 24: by Devi (new)

Devi Nair (views_she_writes) Just finished reviewing 4 books of all different genres.
2 of them I would specifically love to mention.

Whistlin' Dixie - A Tempered Steel Novel is a beautiful love story, first in the series of books. If you like to read love stories pertaining to one family, then this one is for you. Check my review of Whistlin' Dixie and let me know how you find it.

Another one is a tremendous book, one I would love to spread word across the globe if possible. The Dream Shelf is also a love story. But the love story here is of a child to their parent. An amazing book with a beautiful story. Check out my review of The Dream Shelf and prepare to be amazed by Jeff Russell

Carmen I'm a Titanic buff, and right now I'm reading a book titled "101 Things You Thought You Knew About the Titanic, But Didn't!" It goes through 101 myths/truths about things concerning the Titanic disaster, and sets the record straight on what's true and what's false. Tim Maltin authors this book. I'm loving it so far.

Corridors of My Mind

message 43: by Stuart (new)

Stuart Murray | 48 comments Life or Death isn't a question. And it it's not a choice that has to be made, thought out, considered or debated. It is just a reaction; a human instinctual reflective action to survive at all costs, and to hold onto a sliver of hope even when there is none.
Michael Robotham gets it, writes it and presents the story of Audie Palmer living life while death hunts him down with the same, single-minded determination as a locked-in heat seeking missile.
Life or Death is one of the best thrill rides out there.
I finished it last night. 5 stars. Brilliant writing!

Life or Death by Michael Robotham

message 47: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Taylor (christopher_taylor) | 6 comments I just started Cinder, by Marissa Meyer. Very interesting story. I can see more reality in this as I age and watch those around me receive knee, and joint replacements.
