    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    This will be the last Dan Brown novel I will read. It just seemed silly to me.

  • Honeymoon in Tehran: Two Years of Love and Danger in Iran

    Azadeh Moaveni was an American reporter in Tehran in 2005 covering the rise of Ahmadinejad when the unexpected happened - she met her soul mate, fell in love, and became pregnant. Facing an uncertain future and hiding her pregnancy from the religious authorities until she could marry, Moaveni was spied upon; her phone, tapped. Shortly after giving birth, she leaned that she would was soon to be arrested and sent to the notorious Evin prison.

    "Understand the World Around You"
    Overall

    Many Americans take their life for granted. We wave the flag and demand our rights, without understanding how we achieved these rights and the bounty of this country. Furthermore, we fail to understand how other countries or cultures came to be the way they are. Moaveni gives us an opportunity to move beyond the 30 second sound bite of the 6 o'clock news and helps us learn about the political and social make-up of Iran. If you are looking for a love story - don't bother reading this book.

  • The Poisonwood Bible

    Story
    (2007)

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    "Kingsolver is a Word Weaver!"
    Overall

    Kingsolver is a skilled artist at weaving words together into a story with texture and color. I always feel enriched after reading one of her novels. The plot doesn't have to be about romance or mystery or history or fantasy. The story doesn't have to have a happy ending or tie up all the loose ends. It just has to connect with the human experience. Kingsolver knows how to connect.

    Hennie Comfort is 86 and has lived in the mountains of Middle Swan, Colorado since before it was Colorado. Nit Spindle is just 17 and newly married. She and her husband have just moved to the high country in search of work. It's 1936 and the depression has ravaged the country and Nit and her husband have suffered greatly. Hennie notices the young woman loitering near the old sign outside of her house that promises "Prayers For Sale".

    Kathy says: "Great book"
    "Disappointing after reading Tallgrass"
    Overall

    Sandra Dallas is an engaging storyteller. Her novel "Tallgrass" was a good story with some important messages within. Prayers for Sale just seemed to be a collection of short stories, later strung together into a book, but with no unifying message for the reader. The Narrator's presentation was irritating to listen to.
