Good story even though you already know the outcome. Reminded me of all the space and moon shots we've just taken for granted and how really risky they were and are!! Gave me the astronaut's perspective.
Interesting take on Bob's life and the wide swath he made in the world of celebrities.This is a fairly even-handed look at his good bad points.If you like knowing the secrets of Hollywood, you'll enjoy this book.
This author has a warm and gentle style of writing the gets you into the characters hearts and minds within minutes. She can set you in the scene instantly, feelings, tastes, smells and emotional tension.Each of the short stories in this book conveys how ordinary people cope with life, love, pain and loss.I was re-reading a few stories so I could write this review and now I hate to give it up! Enjoy!
A great read! She takes off with an open mind and gets more than she expected. Sometimes sounds a little whiny and tired like you get after not getting enough sleep, but shows a realistic picture of the joys and adventures of a different culture.
Fascinatine premise-what if a parallel world exists where the Neanderthals were the successful Hominids and we went extinct? Then one of the civilized Neanderthals crossed over to see what we've made of the world? Sympathetic characters and a combination of mystery, sci-fi and love story.
Wonderful Southern flavor to this book. It beautifully depicts the people, the lifestyle and the climate-physical and mental of the South Eastern people near the coast. Nice romance but not sticky or sentimental.
My husband and I love these books because they are set in thinly disguised Santa Barbara, Ventura and Oxnard California,my home town and stompin ground. Plus they have a gritty spunky protagonist that catches your heart and often the stories have good twists.This story has Kinsey babysitting a parolee who has friends in the underworld.Good stuff!
Very interesting illumination of a Biblical story. Fleshes out the characters and gives a better perspective of the culture, landscape, personalities and motivations. Also very poetic and satisfying writing.
