Wyrd Sisters: A Novel of Discworld by Terry Pratchett
Wyrd Sisters: A Novel of Discworld

James Raglin, May 30, 2010

Terry Pratchett has fun with so much; Shakespear, Death, Ghost, and Theater to name a few. Granny Weatherax and her little coven get center stage in this one, and it is laugh out loud funny.

What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw

James Raglin, May 28, 2010

Classic Agatha Christie! We have a family mansion, trainrides, and all kinds of suspects. This is the book that Margarat Rutherford made Murder She Said out of. They are ,of course , not quite the same. Enjoy a classic by the Master.

The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea by Sebastian Junger
The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea

James Raglin, May 27, 2010

Sebastian Junger has written a true page turner. Do not begin this book until you will have time to finish it. The way he presents it, you don't have to know or even particularly care about the ocean, fishing, boats or seamen. He puts together a very tight and interesting true story of several people who were all caught by a massive storm and their circumstances. He also will take you back into history which is not in the least bit dry or boring. First class read and two thumbs up!!

Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula: Or, The Adventure of the Sanguinary Count by Loren D Estleman

James Raglin, August 30, 2009

Estleman does a great job and has a lot of fun with this 'Newly Discovered' manuscript. He ask all of us die hard Holmes fans to forget the entire library that Doyle left us and believe the Sherlock is out chasing vampires. I read very few of these later stories, but this one is a joyride. Estleman catches the A.C.Doyle spirit just right. Heartily recommended!
