Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea by Gary Kinder
Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea

Robert Schindler, January 19, 2012

An incredible combination of history and technology in one volume, with the extra additions of mystery and adventure. A fabulous story of the loss of a great ship carrying millions in gold bullion and the successful recovery.

It has been a while since a book captivated me as this one did. Sir Edmund is truly a larger-than-life character, and his fascination with the world around him shines through in his writing. The adventures and misadventures of the crew's trip up the "Ganga" - don't call it Ganges - makes for a delightful armchair foray through India from its coastal regions to the Himalayas.

13 Cent Killers: The 5th Marine Snipers in Vietnam by John Culbertson
13 Cent Killers: The 5th Marine Snipers in Vietnam

Robert Schindler, November 11, 2011

The author has a story to tell, but unfortunately it looks like he is telling it from a 9th grade perspective. Between the poor writing style and his repeated political rants, it is difficult to follow the history of the events he relates. In spite of that, this childish prose is a valuable historical addition to the history of the conflict in Vietnam. And of course, the old cliche, "Never let the truth get in the way of a good war story" probably applies.

The Seamstress: A Memoir of Survival by Sara Tuve Bernstein
The Seamstress: A Memoir of Survival

Robert Schindler, March 28, 2011

If this book doesn't bring you to tears, you have no heart. The writer, Louisa Loots Thornton, does a magnificent job of bringing Seren Tuvel's story to life - and death. I could not put this down. A great addition to the memoirs of the Holocaust.

The Parrot Who Owns Me: the Story of a Relationship by Joanna Burger
The Parrot Who Owns Me: the Story of a Relationship

Robert Schindler, March 28, 2011

Joanna Burger brings her ornithological knowledge to this book and her love of animals shines through as well. There is plenty of technical information about the lives of parrots and birds in general, but her personal interactions with these parrots will bring tears to your eyes.
