    This was a wonderful book! It made me realize a lot about my relationships with people. Namely my mother. You never know what shapes a persons life and makes them into the person they are.

    After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.

    Mary Cooper is in the difficult position of a woman alone out west. Widowed at a young age and unable to return to her family in New York since her elopement to the frontier, she works as a teacher in a small town. It's a lonely life, and she misses more than just her husband's companionship. But a respectable schoolmistress can't partake too freely of the joys of the flesh, even if she's still young and pretty. Things change for Mary in the most unexpected way when she crosses paths with an Indian.

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    If you could sum up The Casual Vacancy in three words, what would they be?

    We can not live without influencing the lives of others. Most of the time we are unaware how much. Great story!

    A story of revenge with a shocking premise and numerous reversals, Skin tackles the issue of what true beauty is - and what's merely skin deep.

    I was really disappointed with this book I have enjoyed other books by Ted Dekker but was not pleased after listening for hours with the ending
