The saddest thing about this man is his total absorbtion in himself. But to give credit where it is due - it was well written and interesting. I think that if you are a fan of Travis Tritt, perhaps you should skip reading this. Like all of us, he is a flawed person - but reality can be a real turn-off for fans.

I like Augusta Goodbody and I want to be her when I grow up! A sweet series with very serious undertones. The authors' work with characterization is marvelous. I feel as if I have known these people all my life!
This is possibly one of the best books I've ever read! A slide-show of stories twined around the life stories of women in a bookclub. The book takes you from the day they first met until decades later - in a hospital -waiting. Ms. Landvik use of character development is a marvel. I feel as if I not only really know these women, but I think I'm a charter member of their bookclub. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! You won't be sorry!
Defense attorney Paul Madriani tackles the most challenging case of his career - the chilling murder of a friend on a crowded city street! This is a well-told tale and held my attention. Read by Joe Mantegna
This is the first of the Wychwood Mysteries. Catherine Penny is a 60ish American, transplanted to what should be a quiet village in England. Murder wakes up the sleep village and Catherine is drawn into the mystery. She is an able protagonist and I'm looking forward to more Wychwood mysteries.
Once again Ms. Medlicott has tugged hard on my heartstrings! Her characterizations are so real, I want to drive down South to meet these ladies! Change and loss color this book with tears and smiles. A particularly well-written series!
I was disappointed because I assumed (incorrectly) that the book would be about the world of his Father, Burt Lahr (the Cowardly Lion)and old Vaudeville. This is a collection of essays re: some of todays entertainers - interesting, but not what I was looking for.
Rick Bragg not only writes Americana - he IS Americana. In this book of collected memories, family stories and Southern essays he tells us the story of his Father and Mother. Coming from a hardscrabble life was not cause of worry for Mr. Bragg - just something that ripened him to what is real in his world. By all means READ THIS BOOK!
If there is a place in Heaven for writers who create characters so real that you feel as if you know them, then Debbie Macomber has her spot there already reserved. Obviously written from the heart of someone who really cares! The yarn shop seems to be "the place to be" for an assortment of people whose lives entwine and become better for knowing each other. As I get to know these characters better the writer makes me feel as if I'm not reading fiction, but a group of friendly autobiographies. READ THIS BOOK! You won't regret it! And whoever does the cover art on these books is brilliant also!
This is one of the finest collections of classic stories by fantasy/sci/fi authors from the "Golden Era". Anyone who really loves the genre should not only read this book, but apply it to their psyche! I would give this collection 26 stars if I could!
