I believe the word is "unputdownable". You will never look at your email the same way again.

Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon--And the Journey of a Generation by Sheila Weller
Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon--And the Journey of a Generation

Jean MacDonald, June 27, 2008

I listened to these artists more than anyone else during my formative years. I always suspected that had a big impact on my worldview (especially when it comes to men!), and reading this book helped me understand how. Despite being overlong and in need of a good copyeditor, this book will fascinate any woman born during the baby boom. And any man who wonders where we got some of our ideas...

Blonde Faith by Walter Mosley
Blonde Faith

Jean MacDonald, December 18, 2007

This tenth outing for Easy Rawlins will certainly please fans of the series. It's one of the best. The great supporting characters are all there (Mouse, Jackson Blue, Jesus, Bonnie, Feather) and interesting new ones are woven in to this tale of longing and redemption. Walter Mosley is a genius.

The Water's Lovely by Ruth Rendell
The Water's Lovely

Jean MacDonald, November 11, 2007

This is a classic Ruth Rendell tale. She is a connoisseur of the banality of evil and has deft hand with a wide-ranging cast of characters. Each one is in some sense the villain of the piece, and Rendell keeps us guessing until the end.
