“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.”
Theodore Roosevelt

My kids loved this read and so I tried really hard to love it too. I read about halfway and it never really grew on me. I want to give it another shot someday, but not anytime soon. I feel like it's a Star Wars movie that I just don't mind going with ...more

Although the writing had moments of brilliance the overall premise of this story was problematic. I listened on audio, so an actual read may have been a little easier to follow. I struggled keeping interest because the whiny American journalist drown ...more

As good as the first of the series. Fast fun read that keeps you turning the pages. Whodunit was a great surprise.

William  Martin
“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.”
William Martin, The Parent's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents
