From the scenes played out in one of the courtrooms, to the live action scenes taking place both home and abroad, I never put this hook down. The narrator was one of the best ever, one that I'll seek out just to hear again regardless of genre. The story and its characters are lively and robust. Please enjoy.

Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

Pastor Kyle Idleman doesn't just want to be a fan of Jesus, he wants to full heartedly commit to him and be a follower of Jesus. But how can you make the leap from fan to follower? In Not a Fan Idleman uses biblical examples to show how the people who met Jesus also had to decide if they were fans or followers, and what it meant for them to then become followers.

On May 1, 1915, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were anxious. Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone, and for months, its U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic.

Dead Wake is a well told story of some of the most significant events in the early 1990's. Nothing is lost on this book, and though it maintains a steady stream of details and side notes, the story flows nicely and comes to a natural and emotional conclusion.

Recommended, through and through.
