People of the Book

One of the best books I have read. So full of information that it needs to be read twice to grasp all of the details.

TheHour I First Believed

A little confusing at first trying to keep the characters and their relationships straight, but this epic well written book is definitely worth the effort.

Still Alice

A well written informative but scary look at the journey of an early onset Alzheimer's victim from first diagnosis to her loss of many cognitive faculties and almost total dependence on others.

The Girlwith the Dragon Tatoo

A little hard to get into because of unusual Swedish names & entwined family relationships, but a real page turner story.

 
Gloomy, Slow, Confusing
Saving Fish from Drowning

Too many characters to keep track of. It got better as it went along but was an easy book to put down and forget about.

The Dovekeeper by Alice Hoffman

Beautiful, Epic, Informative
The Dovekeepers

I found this book to be very informative in regard to the lives and thinking of the early Christians. Even though it was fiction, it had the feeling of real situations that could easily have occurred.
