    excruciating narrator and narrative! i think i may have finally learned my lesson about caring if a book has won any prizes! in my experience, such accolades are rarely indicative of what is worth reading.

    A killer is roaming the streets of San Diego, preying on single mothers and their children with a depravity that few in the police department have ever seen. He’s hunting for the perfect family...and judging by the trail of bodies he’s left scattered across the city, this particular daddy is very hard to please. For Detective Holly Jennings, the search for the Family Man killer just got personal. Not only is she a single mother struggling, after the death of her husband, to raise her daughter, but now Holly’s friend and her daughter have become the Family Man’s latest victims.

    Story

    i find it difficult to fathom that this book ever made it to being published. the characters and dialogue are atrocious and the only kudos i can offer this author is the unique ability to include every cliche turn of phrase in one book! the plot, such as it is, leaves much to be desired and is quite clearly an amateurish attempt at a suspense. add to that the absolutely excruciating narration (think every elementary school play you've ever seen) and you have what may very well be the worst book i have ever read!!

  • An Irish Country Girl: A Novel

    Readers of Patrick Taylor's books know Mrs. Kinky Kincaid as the unflappable housekeeper who looks after two frequently frazzled doctors in the colourful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. She is a trusted fixture in the lives of those around her, and it often seems as though Kinky has always been there.Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    first, let me say that i have thoroughly enjoyed the other books in this series! however, this installment was a disappointment both in story and narrator choice. i highly recommend reading this series, but would also advise skipping this book!

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Story

    after all the initial hype and stellar reviews, i was really looking forward to enjoying this book! however, with the exception of the author's vivid and intriguing (initially) descriptions of the circus, this story was abysmal! the plot was flimsy and the characters were awkwardly developed which made the descriptions more tedious as i waited for something (anything) to happen. it was an excruciating exercise in futility!

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    absolutely hilarious! i can't think of a better pick for narrator than mr. jackson for this spot on characterization of parents everywhere. i laughed until i cried!!
