Book Review: Bai Tide by Erika Mitchell

Bai Tide is a light, fast read with loveable characters and exploit

Book Review: The King of Vinland’s Saga by Stuart W. Mirsky

This rich adventure novel has memorable characters and an epic story.

Book Review: The Golden Son by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

Unlike many other similar books I’ve read, the author does not try to force tears out of the reader (something I dislike), but instead tells a good story with all the tragedy and happiness which happens in life.

Book Review: Mexico by Josh Barkan

The Mexico which Mr. Barkan depicts is violent, poor and hopeless, I don’t know why anyone would want to live there

Book Review: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

I truly enjoyed Ms. Mantel’s writing, it is sharp, distinct and lively.

Book Review: You Only Live Twice by Ian Fleming

Mr. Fleming realized that after World War II, England was no longer the world power it once was and lets it all out on the page in a dialog which must have been torturous to write between Bond and the head of the Japanese Secret Service.

Book Review: The Last Pilot by Benjamin Johncock

If you are a fan of the early space program, or just that of the human condition, this book is for you.

Book Review: News of the World by Paulette Jiles

The storytelling is not fast, but not crawling either, a pace I would imagine Texas moves to and always has been. The author captures the time of the country abided by its own unwritten laws, enforced by rough quite men.

Book Review: The Marvels by Brian Selznick

The story has many surprises and some twists which kept up my interest to the end.

Book Review: Chains of Sand by Jemma Wayne

The author writes about the challenges of living in the region for both Jews and Arabs, especially for young people who struggle with identity and family.
