    Story
    (197)

    In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers."

    Nick says: "An entertaining, yet unfortunate story."
    "Wishful drinking"
    Overall

    Ms. Fisher continues her story of addiction. I found her to be less than respectful, sarcastic if not caustic about those she includes in the story both family and others. It seems there is an effort made to name drop and dish the nasty about those for whom she is less than kind.

    Story
    (106)

    Secret Service agents, acting as human surveillance cameras, observe everything that goes on behind the scenes in the president's inner circle. Ronald Kessler reveals what they have seen, providing startling, previously untold stories about the presidents, from John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson to George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as about their families, Cabinet officers, and White House aides.

    ken says: "A so so read."
    "In the Presidents Secret Service"
    Overall

    I found this book fascinating to learn of just some of the policies, procedures and actions of Secret Service staff. The book is writing in third person after interviews with retired or past Secret Service agents. The idiosyncrasies of the first families are enjoyable, some confirming my thoughts and others very surprising. The work of this service of pretty amazing and awe inducing.

    Story
    (118)

    The same week her husband of 15 years ditches her for a guy he met on Gay.com, a partially inebriated teenage driver smacks her VW Beetle head-on. Marriage over, body bruised, life upside-down, Rhoda does what any sensible 43-year-old would do: She goes home. But hers is not just any home. It's a Mennonite home, the scene of her painfully uncool childhood and the bosom of her family.

    Dotty says: "It's OK"
    "Mennonite in a little black dress"
    Overall

    II enjoyed this book. Ms Janzen enlightens regarding the life in a Mennonite family and most importantly
    explains the decisions she has made regarding her faith and the resulting course her life, marriage and work.

    I found the reader to present the literature in a dull and rather sarcastic way.

    Elizabeth Berg has a terrific insight into secrets of all things "relationship." This work visits the lives of two sisters, their mother and the damage of secrets of the past.
