This book of mysteries is great for when you have limited time. You can pick it up and read 1 or 2 stories then leave it. I've read it for 5-10 minutes at a time. The stories can be funny or slightly scary. Some are not terribly current since they were written before 1981. Still, it can be interesting to see how people interacted in the 70's!
This is a hilarious book! Never saw the TV show,and wish now that I had. Book tells of the making of the shows and describes what segments weren't aired because of controversial nature/advertisers backed out.
"Linda Howard has seamlessly melded thrilling sensuality and heart-pounding dramatic tension. Now she brings back the elusive hero who first appeared in her acclaimed page-turner Kill and Tell- in a new blockbuster that is part suspense,part passion and pure Linda Howard."
This is a great, very readable,book about the history of yellow fever in this country and how it shaped this country in so many ways. As you might expect,slavery played a major role in bringing yellow fever to America,but it was surprising that historians have placed the blame on yellow fever for bringing down the city of Memphis which had, in the 1870's, been one of the largest cities of the South at the time.
I really enjoyed Martha Grimes Richard Jury series so I thought I'd enjoy this. It was disappointing not to get into this as much. I had to listen to the 1st CD twice because I couldn't get head or tail of it, then supposedly it takes place in New England but sounds like the characters are from the South! Confusing.
I'm the "reader" in the family, but when I recommend a book to my husband, he will usually read it because he trusts my judgement of what he likes. So I read this and automatically thought he'd enjoy it-which he did!
Before the book came out, we watched his story on a Tom Brokaw special and were intrigued and naturally had to get the book to get the whole story. I liked how he told his story which flips back and forth from that day's activities to how he came to be at this point in his life because, of course, everyone knows how it ends.
It is truly inspiring, but it tends to drag a little in the middle when he recounts how many mountains he'd climbed, and when,and with whom. But, all in all, a book I would recommend to those who love living the adventure through others
