    It's summer in Memphis. The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels. Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life. Now he doesn't have a joy or a prayer...except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it.

    Overall

    The last two years in my life were spent battling for disability pay from my employer's insurance provider. It took so long it turned our lives upside down. Rainmaker, although not about disability payoff, still has an uncanny similarity to our experience. Funny thing, a short time ago we saw that real company on tv being interviewed with basically the same scandal of "Great Benefit" in the novel. Great telling, and sorry to tell you it can be the TRUTH

    In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

    Joe says: "The Enderverse"
    "thought provoking"
    Overall

    this is one of my favorite books in the ender series. the social structures and interactions between cultures is terrific. you see how we also judge others by our own experience/beliefs and presume to impose them.

    a great "read".

    Overall

    i respect that there be novels for all tastes. i was excited to get this audio book since i'm second generation norwegian. i didn't realize it was going to be so much description of bodily perfection and function volume i mean VOLUME ..of all manner of sexual function..etc.. and so little else... if you like to read about perfect breasts, skin,hard muscled male and a lover like a "stallion" .., this is for you. i'm going back to things like Amy Tan with The BoneSetter's Daughter, etc.
    just to tell others who want to find the novel i was looking for that this isn't it.
    for those who like this type of...you enjoy.every author should truly have fans. i'm not being sarcastic.

    Set in contemporary San Francisco and in a Chinese village where Peking Man is being unearthed, The Bonesetter's Daughter is an excavation of the human spirit: the past, its deepest wounds, its most profound hopes. Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club, brilliantly presents "storytelling in its oldest and truest form".

    Overall

    the most unique and beautiful tale. so rich with the fullness of life in the entire range of emotions. and i cannot imagine ever reading this. it would lose so much without the narration. it is almost as if a friend is personally sharing memories of family through time.

    People are talking. The Da Vinci Code has been on The New York Times best seller list for almost a year and is raising a variety of responses from Christians and non-Christians alike. Some are outraged and upset by the claims of Dan Brown, while others are left utterly confused and don't know what to believe.

    Michael says: "Well done"
    "funny"
    Overall

    it's really funny that those who want to think from the da vinci code that The Church is evil, also consider that this is a work of fiction. actually the da vinci code is a work of fiction, while this is not.
    sound bite mentality. frightening.

    Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His potential heirs, to no one's surprise - especially Troy's - are circling like vultures. But Troy shocks them all when he leaves his fortune to an estranged, illegitimate daughter.

    Richard says: "Best Grisham Ever"
    "great"
    Overall

    I really liked this Grisham novel, in part because it takes us to unfamiliar surroundings. Unfamiliar people. If you need just the normal everyday, don't read it. If you like adventure, this has the twists and turns AND some interesting background.

    In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched...

    Overall

    I really enjoy Grisham novels, but this is now my favorite. Twists and turns continually. Intriguing relationships. If you read people, there is really humor underlying what is going on between certain characters. Had NO CLUE whatsoever about the ending. Was completely wrong. And I'm almost never wrong. This, to me, helps make a novel really great. LOVE IT!
