    Alexandra Fuller won worldwide attention, popular acclaim, and critical accolades for her memoir of her childhood in Africa, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight. This engaging follow-up explores Fuller’s parents’ childhoods and charts the trajectories of their lives through all the British couple’s experiences in war-torn Africa. With the same sharply etched narrative that has earned the author such immense praise, Fuller expands on and offers new insights into her family’s remarkable trials and successes.

    Story

    Tried again to listen to this book but it's so trite and seems to have no plot. Managed to listen to 45 minutes on the train but it was too painful, especially the singing. Best avoided.

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    Story

    Draws you in like a vacuum. Don't read it if you have to sleep or have to meet somebody. It won't happen. Enjoyed it thoroughly but the last few pages got a bit predictable after it was all resolved.

    In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season.

    Story

    There's always lots of twists and turns in the plots of Elizabeth Peters' books.This keeps you guessing who is who and how it will all pan out. Rarely predictable and somehow old fashioned and modern at the same time. Love the strong women with all sorts of weapons and necessities hidden under their skirts ready to take on all comers. Fun & entertaining.

    Have read a few in this series and enjoyed them especially while I'm travelling. The story was resolved well but I still had to buy the next in the series to untangle the relationships and find how they turned out.The characters remind me of people I know.
