The Fire: A Novel by Katherine Neville
The Fire: A Novel

Ronald Gould, January 2, 2010

The long awaited sequel to The Eight was just outstanding. Some say waiting twenty years for the sequel is a long wait, but not me. I read The Eight every five years in the interim. On reading The Fire: A Novel, I immediately went back and read The Eight and then reread The Fire: A Novel. She was exquisite in maintaining all the characters and the story line was excellent. Somehow, everyone grew up in the twenty year gap between the books. Enjoy The Fire: A Novel.

The Fire: A Novel by Katherine Neville
The Fire: A Novel

Ronald Gould, February 17, 2009

Having read The Eight every year for 10 years after it was published, I relished a sequel. In the meantime, I read all the other novels written by Ms. Neville. Just this last weekend, I finished The Fire and reflected on it. The Fire was a worthy sequel to The Eight. There was enough carry forward of characters still in The Game along with a host of new characters willing to survive the checkmate status of The Game. Thank you Katherine Neville for a sequel well worth the wait of 20 years and an original novel published in 40 languages. Great novel.

Rule Number Two: Lessons I Learned in a Combat Hospital by Heidi Kraft
Rule Number Two: Lessons I Learned in a Combat Hospital

Ronald Gould, January 1, 2008

This is a facinating first person account of serving in the Iraq War. This book should be a mandatory read by any person even thinking about running for President of the United States in 2008. Imbedded within the book is a first person account of holding the hand, while in medical treatment, of the first Medal of Honor recipient of the Iraq War. More power to the medical doctor author for writing such an honest assessment of her perceptions of the war for which few sacrifices have been made. Thank you Madam Marine!

Eventide by Kent Haruf
Eventide

Ronald Gould, September 5, 2006

Outstanding "sequel" to Plainsong. The main characters return and grow even better with the passage of time. The new characters each play a role and you learn to love them or hate them. I just hope there is a sequel to Eventide so that Victoria Roubideaux and Raymond McPheron can continue to keep people happy.
