Young Men and Fire by Norman MacLean
Young Men and Fire

Anna R, August 30, 2010

I've read this book twice and both times became mesmerized and pulled into the lives of people who died so long ago. Unfinished at the time of Maclean's death (Author of "A River Runs Through it"), there is no way to tell where Maclean leaves off and the publisher finishes. This true story of the Mann Creek Fire in Montana leaves you haunted by the men who died and the fire fighting compendium that came from this accident. Highly recommended to everybody.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Shadow of the Wind

Anna R, August 30, 2010

I fell across "The Shadow of the Wind" in the same manner that Daniel came onto it. A maze of twists and turns, while 10 year old Daniel starts a journey in search of an illusive writer, who seems to have vanished off the face of the earth, along with his collection of books. Carlos Ruiz Zafon's writing is excellent and pulls you further into the dangerous world of Barcelona's darker side and secrets best left alone.

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

Anna R, April 30, 2010

This book was the best book I've read in years. This is David Wroblewski's first book and the detail, depth of characterization of the people he creates, along with the emotional ups and downs of the story line, which never goes where you think it's going, leaves you breathless. Being a part of the story, as though it were my own story is a talent that can't go unnoticed and I look forward to a second book from Mr. Wroblewski.
