Book Review: The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter by Hazel Gaynor

This is a charming book, half the book is historical fiction (the parts about Grace Darling), the other half which tells the story of Matilda is pure fiction as the author notes.

Book Review: Lincoln’s Last Trial by Dan Abrams & David Fisher

I first noticed this book when author Dan Abrams hawked it on TV as part of a panel on one of the Sunday political shows I watch. The book immediately caught my attention since I really enjoy these min-biographies which delve in depth into a short, but meaningful time in the subject’s life.

The book gives the reader much insight into Apple’s senior executives and the team that has been responsible for its continued success after Steve Jobs.

Book Review: The Grey Zone by Jason McMillan

I found the book to be very interesting on several levels. The world building, the multiple story-lines, and most of all the political aspects and parallels to today’s conservative/liberal/Republican/Democrat/Independent narrative.

Book Review: Untamed: The Psychology of Marvel’s Wolverine by Suzana E. Flores

This book is short, but very well organized, so well organized in fact that I noticed how organized it is. The themes, events, and theories all have their own place, as well as dedicated chapters to portions of Wolverine’s life and battles (with others, himself and romantic ones as well).

Book Review: Ahab’s Return: or, The Last Voyage by Jeffery Lord

I enjoyed reading about New York City (Manhattan) in the 1850s, a rough place full of richness, poverty, and gang elements. There are many elements of magic and mysticism to this novel, something I was not expecting which are central to the story and the themes which, I believe, the author was trying to project.
