Good Book!

Little Bee: A Novel by Chris Cleave

Terrible!

I am the only one in my club that had so much trouble with it, but I hated it. I thought about setting it on fire when we finished it. So many reviews that kept me waiting for something and it never came. Others in my group felt it left you with hope, so maybe I had a bad outlook. However, I would not recommend this book to my worst enemy!

3rd in the series

I found this book to be the slowest of the trilogy. I would also have been pleased with more resolution to the entire series but overall a good read.

1st in the series

Really great. Has a few graphic parts that are not for the faint of heart, but an interesting story that I would recommend!

Historical Fiction

Really an amazing read. Not something I would have chosen on my own but I am glad I read it! Horrifying yet eye opening to what was reality. A good story overall.

Typical Dan Brown Read

A good book. He has a very limited style and it is getting predictable, yet the story still pulls you in and you just keep turning pages.

Interesting book!!

Historical fiction at it's finest! A what if that never did but it makes you wonder! A really good read! Thought provoking and really leaves room for discussion! Highly recommended!

Amazing

Truly eye opening to a way of life and lots of room for discussion. Love the way it is two stories in one with the historical side and the present day story. An amazing book!

A classic

I have read this book twice and would not be surprised if I do again in my lifetime. Really thought provoking and a well written story. An excellent read.

The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson

Not recommended!

My book group read this and it was almost painful. It is slow and full of pointless information. I was so grateful to have finished it and it was over. No one really enjoyed it.

Light on Snow by Anita Shreve

Not recommended!

Not a book I enjoyed at all. Just sort of wandered about and was never much of a story.

The Christmas List: A Novel by Richard Paul Evans

Good Book!

Really good. You know exactly what is going to happen and yet you absolutely have to keep reading to stay with the story. And you will cry! I needed tissues! It was a good book and really led to good discussion in our group!

Loved it!

Kate Morton has become my favorite author! This story may be my favorite of hers. I also loved House at Riverton and liked the forgotten garden. This book is simply addictive! I read it in a day and half because I could not leave it alone! I would put it down and then come right back! Truly a wonderful read!

A great book!

Loved every second of it! A wonderful book that kept me reading every minute until it was over! And I was truly sad to not be able to continue to follow the characters and their continuing story! Better than a soap opera! I loved it!

A fast read!

I read this book in a weekend and enjoyed it! I never had a clue what the end would be until I got there! Really enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading other work by this author!

A tough read

This book contains gobs of information. I really felt like there was too much. Reads like a college lecture without the slides. Not well organized in presentation. Overall I won't say I'm sorry I read it, but certainly not enjoyable.

Her Own Rules by Barbara Taylor Bradford
 
Book Club Recommended
Interesting, Romantic, Dramatic
Not inspiring but ok reading.

This book was recommended to me by someone I greatly trust in her choices. It is not a bad book but not really exciting either. Basic Harlequin type story. Woman doesn't need man and is happy but miraculously finds man and is happier with great job and good family. Easy read but not memorable or life changing.

The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer

Good but....

Very Dan Brown like writer. Great read all the way through but came to a screeching halt with no conclusion. i found that very disappointing and my entire book club agreed.
