    Marika Vecera, an accomplished war reporter, has dedicated her life to helping the world's oppressed and forgotten. When not on one of her dangerous assignments, she lives in Boston, exploring a new relationship with Seb, a psychologist who offers her glimpses of a better world. Returning from a harrowing assignment in Congo, where she was kidnapped by rebel soldiers, Marika learns that a man she has always admired from afar, Pulitzer-winning war correspondent Robert Lewis, has committed suicide.

    Overall

    This reading started to affect me the minute the White Mary plunged her foot into the wet New Guinea jungle and discovered the first leech. This is a trek the author herself survived and also wrote about in Four Corners, a nonfiction which I will definitely read asap. The relationships of the white woman to the New Guinea tribal people was fascinating: uncomfortable, frustrating, and scary...as were her love relationships. The insights of the main character are lingering and relevant to me even though I haven't experienced anything like this in my life or my reading. Now I have experienced remote New Guinea on foot and the cost of being a fearless modern journalist vicariously through this adventurous book. I read many to find one book that affects me like this.

    Dexter Morgan appears to be the perfect gentleman. He is handsome and polite, and has been in a relationship for nearly a year and a half. Yet appearances can be deceiving, for Dexter is a serial killer who has slain many people. But in this tale, he's the good guy, for there is one little twist: Dexter only snuffs out other murderers. When another serial killer, with an eerily similar style, starts grabbing headlines, Dexter has a fairly morbid thought. Am I being challenged?

    "Jauntily Judging Jeff"
    Overall

    This reading was greatly entertaining to me. I loved Dexter: he's like a computer portrait mating between Jimmy Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life and Hannibal Lector; definitely a "third thing"(better than the sum of its parts). I hope the author does not formulate an obvious series, if it means he'll have no time left to create other great pieces.
