My Reviews

The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
 
Book Club Recommended
Graphic, Interesting, Adventurous
Excellent story.

It captured my attention quickly. May be graphic at first, but slowly unveils an excellent story that is not easily forgotten.

Interesting Story

Gernally, it was a good story. As I understand from others, the movie was better than the book...which is unusual as most people prefer the book to the movie. The book lacked "drama," but the story was intersting and informative.

I have read the trilogy and found that all three books were terrific, and I would recommend them to all.

Good Story

This was an easy read. Enjoyed it very much. The storyline gave many interesting topics to discuss with our group.

The Kitchen House: A Novel by Kathleen Grissom

Ok

I liked, not loved, the book. Other members of our book club loved the book, however. I felt it was slightly depressing and hard to get into. I did find the second half fairly interesting and became anxious to continue to the end.

Good story. Written well. Clean and without nastiness or prejudice. Recommend.

Nice Story

Interesting enough read. I could not rate this "5" stars, however, as I found myself wanting very much to connect with her, but I could not. It was somewhat frustrating. I sensed she was trying to "toot her own horn" just a little. She should have better described the depths of her feelings and struggles rather than skimming the surface of her feelings during difficult times in her life. She also seemed to be interested in "self-promotion." Overall, it was a good story, however, and I loved her pursuit of her family abroad.

Discussion worthy

Ok story. Glad to have read it. The discussion by our group, however, was excellent. There were many areas of this book that brought about interesting viewpoints by other readers.

Beyond Belief by Jenna M Hill
 
Book Club Recommended
Interesting

I enjoyed our lively discussion about the book more than the book itself. However, I did find the book interesting. I would really like to hear the prespective of a higher-level person leaving the organization, too. Glad to have read this thought-provoking story.

Ok book

Our book club enjoyed the book for the most part. I personally found it a little far-fetched, but it made for interesting conversation.

OK

Well-written, interesting story. Our club liked the book, and we did have a lively discussion, however, we all agreed that we felt the book was a bit boring. We agreed that the main character was well-developed, but the story should have evolved and ended differently.

Interesting read, somewhat slow at times. Our book club had a lively discussion, however. We had all hoped for better character development, but overall, it was an easy read.

Not what I was expecting, but a good read, nonetheless. Great book club discussion.

Unexpected Dislike

The book was written well, although I was not expecting the book to be an advertisement for the author's other writings. She has led an interesting life, but the book was not what I expected.

Great Story

Seemed a bit predictive, but still a page-turner. Easy read and interesting. The ending was a surprise!

Good Book

The print in this book was so light that it was barely legible. All those who chose to read the print version of the book rather than with an eBook were disappointed. The story was interesting, although it was a bit gloomy. Good discussion, though!

Unexpectedly Wonderful

This book was recommended by a worker at Barnes and Noble. It was written so well with unexpected twists and turns. I highly recommend!

The Four Winds: A Novel by Kristin Hannah

Not Happy

I like Kristin Hannah and read most of her books. I am very disappointed in this book, though. There were many similarities to a book I had previously read also. Most disappointing was the doom and gloom from the first pages that continued to the last page. No hope.

Huge Fan - Good Book

I may be a bit biased in my positive opinion about the book as I am a huge fan of McConaughey. His book has an appropriate mix of life positives and life negatives that resonate with the average reader. He seems to appreciate all that he has achieved, though he has not forgotten who and what helped him. I wish him and his family health and happiness always.
