    On July 19, 2001, Jeffrey Archer is sentenced to four years in prison for perjury. He serves the first three weeks of his sentence in a high-prison that houses some of Britain's most violent criminals. Archer contemplates suicide; he is allowed out and followed by 100 reporters on the day of his mother's funeral; he's moved to the Lifer's wing because of the security; and he becomes a trusted confidant for fellow convicts. A Prison Diary is Archer's account of these events.

    Jeffrey says: "A Worthwhile Listen"
    "Incomplete"
    Overall

    This book is mildly interesting for its insight into prison life but ends quite suddenly in what seems to be the middle of the story. If you read it merely to understand what life as a prisoner may feel like you will be served; however, if you want to know how the plot ends you may have to try wikipedia.

    Kate Moore is a working mother, struggling to make ends meet, to raise children, to keep a spark in her marriage... and to maintain an increasingly unbearable life-defining secret. So when her husband is offered a lucrative job in Luxembourg, she jumps at the chance to leave behind her double-life, to start anew. She begins to reinvent herself as an expat, finding her way in a language she doesn’t speak, doing the housewifely things she’s never before done - playdates and coffee mornings, daily cooking and never-ending laundry....

    Would you try another book from Chris Pavone and/or Mozhan Marno?

    No


    Has The Expats turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What character would you cut from The Expats?

    The convoluted plot of double, triple, quadruple -crossing left the reader with no one to bond with or root for. This book seemed to be an effort to create a story by simple chaining many twists together and hoping to,have a book in the end.

    Story
    (3344)

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    What did you love best about Killing Lincoln?

    Bill O'reilly's narrative places the reader in the middle of the action. His description of every detail that occurred in the planning of the assassination in an hour by hour method keeps the reader engaged. We all know the ending from our history books but O'Reilly makes this sad chapter in American history so real as we share the emotions of the characters.


    What about Bill O'Reilly???s performance did you like?

    O'Reilly narrates just as he speaks on TV. His style brings a matter of fact excitement to the story.
