Snuff (Discworld Novels) by Terry Pratchett
Snuff (Discworld Novels)

Chuck Childers, January 30, 2013

As all of Discworld books, this is excellent. While the book can be read on its own, previous Discworld books, particularly any involving Commander Vimes and the City Watch would inform the goings on. Fun, funny and in places a bit sad.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The Little Prince

Chuck Childers, August 4, 2012

This is my go-to book when I'm feeling down or too grown-up. It shows me something new every time and reminds me what's important. If you have someone who needs to experience childhood, someone of any age, I can't help but recommend The Little Prince.

Blackout by Connie Willis
Blackout

Chuck Childers, September 1, 2011

It's hard to rate a book that is actually the first half of a two-volume novel, but I enjoyed _Blackout_. It's the story of multiple time travelers lost in England during World War II. Like many of Connie Willis's novels, there are mix-ups, misunderstandings and missed connections, but the tone is much more serious than her outrightly comedic books like _To Say Nothing of the Dog_. If the second book, _All Clear_, fulfills the promise of _Blackout_, I'll prob'ly revise my rating to 5 stars.
