"It was a very good book. His story of survival is amazing, and the story of his recovery is heart wrenching. His description of heaven is beautiful, although I found it a bit too close to the cliche. I have no doubt that he believes his experience, but the fact that his description is exactly what a Baptist preacher would envision makes me think this is some type of dream or vision rather than a true trip to heaven. The book is also a bit too preachy to be inspirational for me."
"A great book. I had a hard time putting it down. It's about two best friends who meet as young girls and remain friends through many joys and tragedies. The format is interesting - all is told through letters that the characters write to eachother, wedding and birth announcements etc."
"This was an excellent book. It is a novel about an abused woman escaping via the underground with her son. It goes through her thoughts about leaving and about why she stayed as long as she did. You experience along with her what it would be like to pick up and leave everything you knew, including your identity, behind."
"Very different Grisham. A great book about toughness, relationships, regrets. An easy read.
Coach Eddie Rake is dying. He created a football dynasty in a small town, and his former players gather to say goodbye. They remember the games and try to decide whether they hate or love coach Rake. Neeley Crenshaw, the greatest quarterback they ever had has been gone for 15 years and must forgive himself and his coach before he can move on with his life."
"Very funny satire of the history of our democracy. I would have rated it higher except for the textbook style, which I didn't care for. It was also very crude in spots, and absolutely nothing is sacred including the founders of our country. It was very funny but did bother me a little. Overall, it was pretty entertaining."
