Very open honest account of her life.

Vampire Stories
reviewed on + 24 more book reviews


Interesting twist on Vampire stories. Some of them, such as MR James, Turgenev, Stoker, Nesbit and Benson are of the more traditional bent, but there are also stories from DH Lawrence, Lewis, Windham and Josef Nesvadba that capture the spirit of vampirism without there being a tangible monster.

For instance, in Lawerence's story, "The Lovely Lady", the vampire is a domineering old woman who sucks the vitality out of her son and niece by controlling them.

Nesvadba, a Czech writer, regards the West's materialism as a vampire that "sucks the life" out of us.

Secret Gardens (The Golden Age of Children's Literature)

Very disappointed in this book. I thought I was going to get all sorts of wonderful insight and back story on some of my most beloved children's authors.

Instead Carpenter seemed intent on persuading the reader, with no evidence, that they were a bunch of God-hating pedophiles.

I mean, I guess we have to sell our books and being salacious is the most effective means but I can't consider this book a credible source.

Codex

Edward was living the life. He had just been promoted and was moving from NYC to London-big shot banker. While getting ready for his big move he is asked to help a very important client set-up their library-full of very old and very expensive books. Edward is soon in the midst of a wild goose chase, trying to find a rare book for these all important clients. This is listed as a thriller, I beg to differ. I was interested in the characters and the search for the book enough that I finished this, but this is by no means a super interesting read. Also, I didn't enjoy the game vs reality aspect.

The Heist (Gabriel Allon, Bk 14)


I'm starting to repeat myself when I seem to open all reviews of Daniel Silva's books with, "Typical Daniel Silva, which is to say, GREAT!" I've read all his books to date, and they are all excellent thrillers. A combination of thriller, history lesson, travel guide, covert espionage and a little mystery that unfolds as well. There are two missions to be accomplished in this story, one involving a long-lost Caravaggio painting, but that's the secondary story. The first involves bringing down the corrupt family of the president of Syria, definitely a timely story, based on current world affairs. If you like Silva's books, you'll like this one. If you haven't read one, then definitely give it a shot, cause Silva's way above the norm of Patterson, Woods, Cornwell, et al.

I read book 2 in the series first. Knew I had to read this one to organize all the threads. Really enjoyed both of them and will continue to read the rest of them. Great lead character.

I rate books on 2 levels...did I like it, AND would my mom like it? This book passes on both levels. I liked it a lot, and my mom will enjoy it too because she likes well-drawn characters that behave rationally. Too many books out there have improbable characters that act goofy. Try this book!
