"Completely enjoying this sharp angled read. But then I am especially enamored of intrepid women of considerable length life experiences. And no more than by the mighty Florence of this particular period. Excellent!" 13 hours, 56 min ago

Inheritance by Dani Shapiro

Well, I said the review would come in a week. But I guess I lied. Maybe the reason I forgot about it was that it was a hard one to posit. For my taste and as a memoir in general. Both!

Yes, I am outlier. And I'm going to try to be as kind as possible.

Chiefs by Stuart Woods
"Maybe a book for another time....

I read this book after watching the mini-series a couple of times (definitely worth seeing). I loved the first section with Will Henry as chief of police. I also enjoyed Hugh as well. I also felt like I was in that..." Read more of this review »

Hmmmm! This to me was comparable to reading three different books. The first Police Chief's I would have given a 4 star for sure if it was the whole onus. The Second Chief's I would barely give a 3 star, maybe 2.5 stars. And the last Chief, an even 3 ...more

2.5 stars rounded up for the quick, clear read. But as another GR reader posted in her review- this also was my least favorite Sejer so far. It's Sejer novel #11. Getting to #11 before I got to any which I had to consider giving a 2 star! That's fair ...more
The Drowned Boy by Karin Fossum
"I normally enjoy Karin Fossum's writing but struggled with this book. I thought it was tediously repetitive and the ending was ridiculous."
Jeanette and 8 other people liked Dimitris Passas's review of Κάρμεν:
Κάρμεν by Karin Fossum
"This book was a disappointment for me as i deeply appreciate Karin Fossum's prose and choice of hard to handle subjects which often involve heinous criminal acts such as pedophilia or child abuse.This book is not an exception as Inspector Konrad S..." Read more of this review »

Belle Blackburn
“Never marry a man unless you can sit with him reading a book and feel perfectly comfortable. If it makes you nervous to sit quietly with him while you read, feeling like you need to entertain him or provide conversation, then this would not be the person you should spend your life with. You should feel free to just be when you are with him.”
Belle Blackburn

“People lose a lot of time in hating others, and there's no fun in it at all.”
L Frank Baum

Ben Shapiro
“The best countries—and the best societies—are those where citizens are virtuous enough to sacrifice for the common good but unwilling to be forced to sacrifice for the “greater” good. Flourishing societies require a functional social fabric, created by citizens working together—and yes, separately—toward a meaningful life.”
