I thought that this was a mystery novel. There was some mystery; but mostly it was vivid sex scenes with the main character, his girlfriend. A lot of confusing conversations and little plot. Supposedly if you read the previous books in the series, it made more sense. However, I wouldn't...

While I really liked Jane Green's earlier work for being cheeky, quick-witted stories about young women finding their way in the world, her later works are more emotional stories of women who have moved through later stages in life and dealing with issues that come from getting older and a...

This was the first in a series featuring Inspector Banks, to which I was referred by a friend. I found it to be mildly interesting, but prefer stories which delve more deeply into the personality and personal life of the protagonist, a la P.D. James, Michael Connelly et al. Investigation of the...

Another dystopian read, but with the umbrella of teenage depression resulting in suicide being the 'problem' to be fixed. While there are many critics who are dismissive about it, it is an attention grabbing read that I finished in a day. Following the basic premise of the government...

I LOVE Jane Green's work! I'm not sure how I missed this title, but it's a delicate balance of a heartwarming/gut-wrenching story of family and unconditional love. Green has a special way of making you fall in love with her characters whether your share their story or not. As an...

I really like the John Sandford, "Luke Davenport" and "Virgil Flowers" books. Some I have liked better than others, but I have enjoyed all of them. This one was very, very good. A high school student goes out into a farm area to make out with his girl. When they get out of...

A few Stephanie Plum novels back, I had almost decide to stop reading the Plum books. But, I stuck with it. This one started bad to me. Stephanie Plum is more of a no brain bimbo than ever and Lula, she starts off so trampy and stupid too. When the two women go to pick up a Bail Jumper, they go...

The book is a humorous, wonderfully absurd sci-fi adventure. This first book in the "trilogy" of five books is a mix between the search for meaning and the recognition that it's all a joke in poor taste. As we follow Arthur Dent on his journey around the universe with his good...
