The Dismal Science by Peter Mountford
The Dismal Science

Bookwomyn, March 20, 2014

Excellent! A very different plot! (And a nice change from murder mysteries.) A peek into the workings of the World Bank. A realistic peek into the mind of a man who faces huge changes in his life because of a snap decision. Lessons to be learned!

The Goldfinch (Large Print) by Donna Tartt
The Goldfinch (Large Print)

Bookwomyn, January 9, 2014

What an amazing book! I resisted starting this book because as a 'woman of a certain age,' what interest could a young boy's tale be to me? Wow was I wrong. My interest was peaked from the first page. I loved Tartt's "The Secret History" and the reviews of this new book were favorable so I thought I should at least try it. I am so very glad that I did. Highly recommended.

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
The Sense of an Ending

Bookwomyn, January 5, 2013

Previous review:

I found "The Sense of an Ending" to be of particular interest because I think that as we age, we all have some regrets about things we failed to do. This book offers wisdom about how one can avoid those lost opportunities - and how the life lived in a safe little cocoon is not always the most rewarding. Life is to be lived! Fully. At the top of your lungs! Dance til your feet fall off. Ah well ... at least live each day as if it were your last because sometimes it is.

The Panther by Nelson DeMille
The Panther

Bookwomyn, January 1, 2013

I gave up mid-way & read the last chapter. Can honestly say I don't think I missed a thing. DeMille's books were good when he first started being published but are now, so it seems to me, paid by the word. They just go on and on and don't say a thing. I don't think I'll bother with any more of his novels.
