So, you want to write a book…

You want to be an Author I think that at some point in everybody’s life, they think about writing a book.  For some reason or other, very few ever complete it.  Fewer still can ever actually make the claim “I wrote my own book.” So, why is that?  It’s doesn’t take a brain surgeon to realize that writing a book is hard work, and very time-consuming.  The excitement that you once had has been replaced with discouragement and disappointment. Thinking…

The Fall of Gondolin review

The Fall of Gondolin review

     Another Tolkien Victory There are two kinds of people in the JRR Tolkien world.  There are those who know his works well, and cannot wait until the next chapter of  the Silmarillion.  They will devour each and every word with grateful hearts… then there is everyone else who has no idea what a Silmarillion is. In ‘The Fall of Gondolin’, there are two wonderfully written narratives intertwined for 130 pages.  They are full of rich detail, making for…

Crazy Rich Asians review

Crazy Rich Asians review

             Can I be Rich?   Wow, what it must be like to be crazy and rich!  This larger than life drama, brought to us by Kevin Kwan, is at the top of the best sellers list for good reason.  The characters in this story are so alluring and likeable that the book is hard to put down.  With the main characters, Rachel and Nick, being so overdramatic and flamboyant, this story is defiantly a…

The Outsider review

The Outsider review

                An Awesome Read It just amazes me how every time I pick up a new Steven King novel, it just gets better and better.  The way he captures the characters, the way his story flows… even the editing is better. The story starts with a mysterious murder, but that’s never enough for Mr. King.  A bit later in the book, strange, supernatural things start happening.  By themselves, these things would seem a…

Texas Ranger review

Texas Ranger review

                Well Worth the Read I have to admit; Texas Ranger is my favorite James Patterson book of all time.  I have read many novels this past year that were kind of out there, with their unlikely heroes.  Not only are the characters in this book likeable and intriguing, but the story line is believable and compelling.  I also like the fact that this book captured my interest, and kept me riveted and…
