The Sparrow

This book was an easy read with very likeable characters. I thought the writter did a great job developing the characters and was very descriptive of the various settings.

Out Stealinig Horses

The writer is very descriptive and insighful. It's an easy read that draws you into the setting and shapes the characters so you
understand them, their motivations and their shortcomings.

The Art of Disappearing

Good premise but shallow character development. I would have enjoyed my adventures.

Daughters of Fortune

I enjoyed this book cover to cover. I think more could/should have been written about prior relationships but the characters were expertly developed. The historic references were acurate and insightful.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The Help

The book was so well written that I felt I was living in the South in the 1960's and was experiencing the relationship between black 'Help' and their employers. This was the the first time in a long time that I was sad the book had to end.
Great read and very insightful.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Once I adjusted to the 'letter/correspondence' rather than discriptive paragraphs and dialogue, I was drawn into the
relationships between the characters and felt I was part of the
group. It was a simple and enjoyable read and I will certainly read future works by this author.

Q & A: A Novel by Vikas Swarup
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Adventurous, Interesting

A quick-read book that deals with some issue of human tragedies but you're given the chance to see the difference even one person can make. This book emphasizes the addage that what you
give of yourself comes back tenfold. Great writing - Great material.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

This book was a 'page-turner' that keeps the reader rivotted. Some of the material was graphic and disturbing but, in the
end, moral justice perserveres. The characters are well developed and the story is credible. I definately will read
the full trilogy and other books that may come to print posthumousely by this author.
