Demolished Man by Alfred Bester

Jeff McBride, January 22, 2007

This book has been around awhile but reads well today. Really explores the mind reading concept in an insightful way. More about psychic abilities and less about space......it's an enjoyable read.

Blood Music by Greg Bear

Jeff McBride, January 22, 2007

I was expecting a lot from this book. It received several awards and has garnered a great deal of critical acclaim but it fell flat for me. It left me feeling empty.......the book/story felt unfinished.

Fast paced but fairly predictable. Good read but not many surprises.

Candyfreak: A Journey through the Chocolate Underbelly of America by Steve Almond
Candyfreak: A Journey through the Chocolate Underbelly of America

Jeff McBride, January 22, 2007

Semi-fascinating story about a few classic traditional candy business'. It was an OK read but lacked breadth. I'd only had a few of the candies described and I really would have enjoyed less depth on more candies. Still......I read it in two sittings and it made my mouth water!

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Jeff McBride, January 22, 2007

I love books that make you think about life and this book certainly does that. It's a very well written story that makes you think about how you live your life......in a manageable way. This is one of those books that could have a positive, uplifting effect on every person that reads it.
