I should have know this read was going to be corny if they have to make it appealing by putting a hot babe on a motorcycle.
A book has to grab me from the beginning, or I simply get bored, especially with cops.
I can't believe I haven't read this book before, one of my best reads ever!
The story reminded me of the Lacey Petterson case, but it turns out much differently with ongoing twist of events. I hope they make a movie on this one!
I'm three hours into this novel and totally bored. Grisham rambles on and on about a kid who can't make it in the big leagues, and cops who can't find their buttocks with both hands. I give up, no more JG novels for me, he has lost his touch.
I decided to try something different, even though I rarely pick up a Stephen King novel. I was so glad I did, 11/22/63 will keep you on the edge of you seat. The plot is very creative and fast-paced. It has drama, action, sci-fi, history and romance nicely integrated. Craig Wasson deserves a lot of credit, I'm going to start tracking him!
Third Option was disappointing after reading The Assassin, especially the ending, which is abrupt. The plot essentially is about the politics and backstabbing in Washington, the politicians being the true terrorists.
The plot gets thicker each step of of the way. Pay attention as the author connects the dots. I was on the edge of my seat, never bored, I look forward to the sequel.
I was interested in reading this because Louis grew up close my home town, he was a track star at USC and served in WWII. The drama is nonstop, but I must warn you that sometimes you will need to put the book down because you're afraid of what is going to happen next! It is also an insightful account of WWII from a soldier's and POW perspective. And, you'll learn a lot of history you can't get from a textbook.
I was afraid to read her memoir because I knew the details would be horrendous. First of all, she does an amazing job reading her memoir to us, it nice to hear the voice of this innocent victim. She also shares very profound life lessons about how an abuser can control and exert power over another person. She also provides thought provoking insight on our social values, or lack thereof. JC was among us in broad daylight, shopping, at schools, at the beach. She was afraid to make eye contact because she was afraid someone would recognize her. Overtime she began to realize that it didn't matter, because nobody cared.
