A Courtroom Classic
»
This book is a classic, but is still readable today. It is interesting to see how life was for people back in the 50’s and to realize this is one of the first books to deal with the subject matter of rape. This is also one of the first novels set in a courtroom, which is interesting to keep in mind for fans of that genre. I found this book very enjoyable.

It’s interesting to look back from today’s perspective and see how AIDS was viewed in the 80s. Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) and Rayon (Jared Leto) are great and well deserves their academy awards. Recommend!

Set in Germany in the years 1939-1943, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, narrated by Death. This is a very complex book, and well worth reading. It’s not the kind of book you can read in one sitting. The approach taken by the author is quite different and interesting. I definitely recommend it.

This is the kind of book that’s difficult to put down, it’s so well written and interesting on so many levels. I am not a veteran, and I have not been through the experiences the author speaks about, but I think reading this book can help people understand the relationship between a service dog and the person he serves.

When I read a Harry Dolan mystery, I have to set aside time because I can’t put his books down. I loved his first two books, and this prequel introduces a young David Malone (Loogan) is another page-turner. The book is filled with plot twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end.

This book is filled with fascinating characters that you get to know over the course of the novel. I was sorry to finish the book. One of the themes in the book is how chance occurrences can change your life. The way Dolan weaves events through the book keeps you in suspense. I can’t wait for his next one!
