Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy
 
Optimistic, Interesting, Poorly Written

There were over 60 characters in this book. I thought it was written on about a seventh grade level.

The Bone Tree

Greg Iles is one of my favorite authors. I would have given this book 5 stars, but I thought he got bogged down during the interview between Stone, Kaiser, and Cage. I got bored which I usually don't do.

Insightful, Informative, Interesting

I thought the book was interesting. It gives a look into life the of the rich and famous. I thought that Gloria was pretty candid about her private life. She told things about herself that were very personal. I was surprised that Anderson has made his own way. Very interesting.

The Woman in Cabin 10

This book was confusing in the beginning, but it kept me wondering what is going on. Therefore, It kept me reading. It was not predictable. The characters weren’t developed enough to understand where the story was going.

Wild Horses by Dick Francis

Wild Horses

'Wild Horses," was a different type of mystery that I normally read. But, after a slow start I found it quite interesting. I like the characters, Thomas and Moncrieff being my favorite. That Francis inserted humor, also made it a good read. I liked the insight into film making. I think that any setting could fit with the way and the reasons for the murder. It didn't add much to the mystery.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

This book was so interesting. It is so typical of the way women were treated in all cultures. Men have always wanted a son, but girls were considered worthless in most cultures. Women were expected to run the house and men were the providers, but women were always the strongest. II worried about the characters right from the beginning of the book.

Gloomy

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
 
Interesting, Confusing, Insightful

I really liked the characters in this book. Although, I was disappointed in the ending. The children were left to their own devices, while the parents were caught up in themselves.

This book was very interesting. I have known people like this. I don’t think that you can blame society for your problems. I think it is learned helplessness, but you can rise above it if you want to.

Into the Water

This book was hard to follow in the beginning. i had to make a tree to connect and untangle the characters. The story was disjointed.

The book grabbed my interest right from the beginning, then too much time was spent on the house, the story picked up and was hard to put down.

Fatally Flaky

I found the writing to be fairly simplistic. The characters reminded me of Partricia Cornwell's, Kay Scarpetta and her group. She, also, cooks and investigates murders. I enjoyed the book and stayed hungry the whole way through.
