I'm an avid reader. I like detective stories, history and some bios. But not those gory books that might give me nightmares.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story

    As a Mac fanatic I was anxious to read about the man who saved Apple. To understand the man who seemed to understand us, our need for a simple, elegant computer filed with the creative applications we creamed of. This is his story, not pretty at times but a tory of a perfectionist who would not be denied . A man who was often like an obnoxious child, demanding and rude, A genius.
    I loved the book, the narration was wonderful. It's long and that's good, more to enjoy.

    The recipient of Edgar, Anthony, and Macavity Awards, New York Times best-selling author C. J. Box has won almost every honor in his field. In Breaking Point, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is glad to catch up with old friend Lyle Pendergast, but then the man goes missing and is named a suspect in the death of two EPA employees. All signs point to Lyle’s guilt, but the more Joe digs into the case, the more he realizes he’s stepped into the middle of a deadly power play.

    This is the first in the popular series featuring California investigator Kinsey Millhone. She's 32, twice divorced, no kids, an ex-cop who likes her work...and who works strictly alone!

    The story was interesting, but the performance was mediocre. Several times I had no idea which character was speaking.

  • Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer

    Story
    (302)

    The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history, the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild 12-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.

    Elizabeth says: "Fascinating!"
    "Good book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. The details of the great assassin's attempt to escape are fascinating. I thought I knew the story but I was wrong. The author tells it with care and compassion and the tragic figure of Booth becomes almost human.

    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    Patricia says: "Totally predictable"
    "Nightmarish"
    Overall

    I tried not to read this book before going to bed. This holds some vicious and gruesome murder scenes. If any part of this is even half true, we are in big trouble. Way too grisly for me.

    When Hackberry Holland became sheriff of a tiny Texas town near the Mexican border, he'd hoped to leave certain things behind: his checkered reputation, his haunted dreams, and his obsessive memories of the good life with his late wife, Rie. But the discovery of the bodies of nine illegal aliens, machine-gunned to death and buried in a shallow grave behind a church, soon makes it clear that he won't escape so easily.

    Richard says: "Dynamic Duo"
    "an ending worth waiting for"
    Overall

    Parts of this book were so funny. The storyteller is flawless..
