Lalita Tademy has done it again!! She is a phenomenal author! Each of her books gives new insight into our country at a very dark time.

Yes, it's basically non-fiction, but it reads like a novel. Never a boring section, and it gives both a
good picture of a coal mining town and the impact of the space program on the nation. Much better than the movie!

Kind of depressing that a family destroys each other like this, but our book club realllyyy discussed it and when we wandered, returned right away to it again with more to discuss. A must read!!

One of the worst mysteries I have ever read!! Maybe if you have been to Italy it would help, but it seems that a book should have universal appeal. This was a lousy plot and never had a resolution...

This book is drivel. The characters are wooden and the plot meaningless. The only moment of suspense was when Bella was trapped and that didn't last for long or ever get a satisfactory explanation.
Okay, so people read books 2-4 to find out if she becomes a vampire?!
NOT ME!
And our teens are reading this stuff when there are wonderful books out there like "Book Thief?"

An incredible picture of the times, but most noticeable, it gives you the understanding of particular people and what they faced in hard times and how they reacted.
Excellent read!
