The Lost Symbol

Just finished watching the youtube clip on how The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown was printed and assembled and found it absolutely fascinating. Thanks for including this in the description of the book. Would love to see more clips like this : D

Fragment by Warren Fahy

Bev, June 21, 2009

Warren Fahy pushes the theory of evolution to it's breaking point with his debut environmental thriller, Fragment. The book opens with the Trident, a 182 foot exploration ship scheduled to circle the globe in a year long journey to film a new cable reality show, Sea Life. At first the show's ratings soar but due to a series of storms, filming comes to a halt and the ratings go flat. That is until the crew stumbles onto a distress signal from a ship, one that has been lost for over three years. Nell Duckworth, the Trident's botanist is familiar with the area. She tells the crew that the island where the distress signal seems to be coming from has only been sighted three times in the past 200 years, with only one recorded landing in 1791. Cynthea, the producer of the reality show questions pursing the signal but as her career has had some bad breaks she sees this as a way to get it back on track. From this point on you might start to second guess the plot and think the the book is taking on a Jurassic Park theme but what Fahy hatches next is not a creation of man but of nature run amok.
This book is the perfect read to escape with. I'd love to see Fragment as the next summer blockbuster. But for those naysayers who want more complex characters, more subplots, more whatever; your better off finding another book to read... but before you go would you please pass the popcorn? This book is too good to put down.

Triple Cross by Mark T. Sullivan
Triple Cross

Bev, May 23, 2009

Mark T. Sullivan's new anti globalist thriller is a daring work of fiction in our present economic turmoil. This was one book that was hard to put down. Though at first it seemed to follow the usual predictable path of a special interest group out to prove it's point by terrorizing the elite, Mr. Sullivan's book takes a few turns that leaves the reader comparing the author's fiction to the facts of our faltering capitalism today. It's difficult not to become personally involved with the book, when our daily headlines read about corruption and trading that has brought companies to their knees. And just when you think you have it figured out, there's another revelation. The ending is a fantastic work of genius. If you love action/adventure Triple Cross is not to be missed. I absolutely loved this book.

Bev, April 28, 2009

If a picture is worth a thousand words than Sherrie Mathieson's book, Steal This Style speaks volumes to women in how to mix classic and current styles to achieve a look that is undoubtedly fashionably and fresh.

Sherrie makes it easy to obtain that look of classic cool, by showing comparisons of mom in the 'never cool style' and then mother and daughter together in the 'forever cool' look. Page after page you'll be reminded of your mom, your grandmother in typical attire that you see everyday but than to see the same women in current looks is striking. Many look thinner and younger. Plus there's the benefit of swapping clothes and accessories with your daughter. If your looking for a way to update your closet this book is definitely the one to help you with your makeover.
