  • Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise

    Garlic and Sapphires is Ruth Reichl's riotous account of the many disguises she employs to dine anonymously. There is her stint as Molly Hollis, a frumpy blond with manicured nails and an off-beige Armani suit that Ruth takes on when reviewing Le Cirque. The result: her famous double review of the restaurant: first she ate there as Molly; and then as she was coddled and pampered on her visit there as Ruth, New York Times food critic.

    Overall

    could have done without some of the detailed discussions of the food and the recipes - I now its a book about food but... but I found it very entertaining. Liked the narrator

  • The Wizard of Oz

    Most of us remember The Wizard of Oz as the film starring Judy Garland and Bert Lahr. But the film was based on an immensely popular early 20th century Oz series. In these novels, Oz is the utopian land beyond the rainbow where threats are turned back with valor and ingenuity. Their success is due to the way they induce children to look for the element of wonder in the world around them.

    Patti says: "Narrator Unimpressive"
    "OK, but narrator not a star"
    Overall

    the version was OK. I did not like the narrator. Found her voice a little annoying and not much emotion.

  • The Right Address

    The Right Address sears through the upper crust of New York's glittering Park Avenue scene to dish the dirt on the ladies who lunch, the gents who club, and the desperate climbers who will stop at nothing to join the backstabbing, champagne-sipping, socialite-eat-socialite stratosphere.

    I greatly enjoyed the book. It is fluff, but fun fluff and definitely kept me interested. Fun "beach read" type book.

  • Elizabeth and Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens

    In a rich and riveting narrative, Jane Dunn reveals the extraordinary rivalry between the regal cousins. It is the story of two queens ruling on one island, each with a claim to the throne of England, each embodying dramatically opposing qualities of character, ideals of womanliness (and views of sexuality), and divinely ordained kingship.

    Catharina says: "Fantastic book"
    "Very good"
    Overall

    I have spent a lot of time studying the Tudors monarchs and I found this book very good and engaging
