The Gods of Guilt

When Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller gets on the case of an old \\\"friends\\\" murder, the courtroom drama couldn\\\'t get much better! Connelly at his best.

Winter's Tale ~ Love It or Hate It

A very LONG book, and several members quit early on. But everyone agreed it was beautifully written, if a bit wordy, and felt like you were reading six different stories! There were also no discussion questions available, so we had to wing it.

Compelling

The first in a series of books with Inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen unraveling an Oslo conspiracy involving drugs, murder, and government corruption.

The Last Man: A Novel by Vince Flynn

A interesting look at the world of politics and military interactions. Very violent, and geared more toward men readers, but still an interesting story that kept you guessing until the end.

Gorge yourself!

So much food and so little time! The story of how a chef is born. Well told tale of Hassan and his ascent up the ladder to becoming a 3 star chef. Born in India, praised by the French ~ quick read.

Tale of Two Worlds

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the places that it went. A tale of two strong women from different eras and the mystery that connects them.

On the LIne

I really enjoyed the book. The look behind the scene in upscale restaurants was a real eye opener, and Grant\\\'s creativity amazing. It was also inspiring to see what Grant had to overcome to make his dreams come true.

Oh, How True!

This was a fun romp through a funeral, yes, you heard me right! The interactions between the various members of the family were so true to life, I really enjoyed the read.

Loosely Based on Real Person!

I enjoyed the first half of the book, but after that it began to drag. I found it hard to believe a real person actually went through all the things Belle went through, thus my title!!

Well, our club was split on this book. Some thought it not interesting at all, others found it fascinating!! Maybe the YA choice was not the best for this group!!

It's a Hit!

Terrific job on covering two very different points of view. It covers the World Fair held in Chicago, along with a serial killer who takes advantage of the excitement of the Fair to find his victims.

Most of our group enjoyed the book, but two members thought it was more for a young adult, and didn't feel the 14 year old character was true to life.

50/50

Half our members really liked the book, other just thought it was okay. If you like forensic science, you will definitely enjoy the book, otherwise, not so much! We could not find any book club discussion questions, so came up with our own.

We all seemed to enjoy this story of a walk on the PCT, but everyone agreed that Cheryl was woefully under prepared! Still, she made it through and came out a better person at the end.

Half of our group disliked the book, and everyone thought it was a very sad tale. The writing was beautiful, however, and it seemed to be so true to life, as everyone seemed to know or remember someone just like these characters in their lives.

What's the point?

Most of us did not seem to find the book either interesting or particularly informative. We have all pretty much heard this before, and are frustrated that nothing ever was done about it.

An interesting story rhat most of us had never heard before. The I.ly negative was the inclusion of D.W. Griffith in the book, felt.to.be pandering!

Slow

I, and several other members of the club, found this book to be very slow and found it unbelievable. Most of the problems were caused by Mrs. Einstein not being able to believe in herself!
