Book Review: An American Spy by Olen Steinhauer

Mr. Steinhauer refuses to make this novel easy for his readers, but the relish in which he writes, creating a world full of paranoia is worth the effort.

Book Review: The Binding by Bridget Collins

I was looking forward to reading more about the “binding”, how it worked, affected people and what is Emmett’s role in the whole magical realm the author created.

Book Review: The Ventriloquists by E.R. Ramzipoor

The cast of characters is well written and defined, the author keeps the book going using wit and conviction to tell a story which should not be lost to history.

Book Review: During-the-Event by Roger Wall

I appreciated the way the author set up the post-apocalyptic world, from the beginning. The reader immediately understands the impact climate change had had on the country, the people, and the world. D.E. tells the story he was told by his grandfather, even though he was too young to remember those life changing events.

Book Review: Quichotte by Salman Rushdie

Just as Cervantes made fun of the junk-culture in his era, Mr. Rushdie takes the challenge and goes to a literary war with the garbage that Americans are inundated with every minute of every day.

Book Review: The Nearest Exit by Olen Steinhauer

In The Nearest Exit by Olen Steinhauer bats the story out of the park again, with an unbelievable plot involving the CIA, Germany’s secret service as well as a guest appearances by the Ukrainians and Chinese.

Book Review: The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer

This novel is the full package though, it is compelling, articulate and the struggle of Milo to balance his difficult, secretive, work with the important part of his life, his family, really comes across.

Guest Post: The Color of Our Sky by Amita Trasi

Amita Trasi has a two-voice tale, moving from the past to the present and vice versa is dense, emotional, and resonates in you, even when the book has long been read. Modern India, the history of female lawlessness, childish betrayal and its atonement, there is a lot of everything.
