    The Priestly Sins tells the story of Father Herman Hoffman, a gifted and innocent young man, who becomes swept up in "the Crisis" after witnessing child abuse in his first parish appointment. Soon, he is vilified for denouncing a priest who has been "cleared." He suffers the harsh fate of a whistle-blower when his Archdiocese has him committed to a mental health center.

    Overall

    I am usually a fan of Greeley's, but this was a real disappointment. It isn't at all like the description of the book-really fell flat. Don't bother reading.

    Whatever happened to Calico Joe? It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a 21-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz....

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me nostalgic. There were very painful parts and redeeming parts.


    Any additional comments?

    A well written baseball story with a somewhat predictable ending, but with a surprise twist. Not your standard Grisham churn out.

    Very suspenseful and keeps you guessing who the serial killer is until the end. Good read.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Carmela08 says: "Excellent spy tale"
    "Good Book - a little long"
    Overall

    Over does the descriptions and drags out the book a bit, but over all a good read and worth the listen.

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Ron says: "Good McMurtry, not great"
    "NOT a Wild West Story"
    Overall

    The best thing by far about this book is Annie Pott's rendering. She made it possible to finish. It is not (as advertised) a book about gunfighters, but instead one woman's journey through life. As such, it does give a broad picture of just how short lived the "Wild West" really was. It is tedious in places, as are many of McMurtry's books since Lonesome Dove. Maybe an author only has one truly great book in his heart. I enjoyed it to a point, but my husband got really tired of the plot.

    Police detective Harry Lyon is a perfectionist who likes his files error-free. To Harry's dismay, his partner, Connie Gulliver, embraces chaos, urging him to "get in touch with the rhythms of destruction." But when Harry and Connie have to kill in the line of duty, the ensuing surreal nightmare makes Connie's cynical world view seem all too accurate.

    Dan's Gal Sal says: "My first Koontz, but not my last!"
    "KEEPS DRA-GON OUT. . . ."
    Overall

    How wordy can you get? Boring, boring, boring - gruesome forever and the dog, would he NEVER shut up with his yadda, yadda, yadda.
    I have read and enjoyed Koontz, but should have paid closer attention to the negative reviews. They were right on the mark. I wouldn't reccomend this book to anybody.

    Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. Her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas Strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.

    A totally insipid book. . .drags on and on without suspense and is truly silly. A complete waste of good time. Couldn't even listen to the last 2 CD's.
