Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl

Sue Fisher, January 25, 2014

The writing is good, but the i felt manipulated from the beginning and so many scenarios were so implausible that I just couldn't get into it. And I DID read the entire book, as I thought it might get better but it did not. Not sure why so many people like this story.

Working Safe by E. Scott Geller
Working Safe

Sue Fisher, March 12, 2012

This is a great common sense book. Actually, the title could be Working Safe, subtitle: How to Help People Actively Care for "OTHERS," instead of the "Health and Safety". The book is filled with really wonderful observation on the human mind and behavior. It is an excellent guide for good management practices and managers and company executives would be well served by reading -- and following! this book.
The only drawback is its price. At $74 (paperback) it is selling like a technical book, but priced closer to $20, it would be a widely used book in business schools or anywhere that cares about improving their management and workers health, efficiency, attitude and interactions, as well as being safer in the workplace.

The Coroner's Lunch by Colin Cotterill
The Coroner's Lunch

Sue Fisher, August 26, 2010

I read this on a recommendation only as it was "something unusual" so I had no preconceived notions about the story. So what a wonderful surprise that this book was so good! It is set in Communist Laos and should feel foreign, but the dialogue was so snappy and clever and human that I felt like I was listening to a story about some old friends. It is an unusual story, but a great read. I am recommending this to all my friends.

Deception Point by Dan Brown
Deception Point

Sue Fisher, March 30, 2010

Yeah, OK, I too had some issues with believability, but, really... this IS Dan Brown and with it comes some acceptance that reality is going to be tweaked. I will say that I enjoyed this book, as I have all Dan Brown's books - including Digital Fortress. The books take you places, often in some detail, about things which most people know very little. His book are really fun books to read, although I really think Angels and Demons was his best (and, yes, I have read The Lost Symbol, as well).

The Historian: A Novel by Elizabeth Kostova
The Historian: A Novel

Sue Fisher, April 25, 2008

I LOVE to read, so when my fellow reader-friend gave me this I was a bit irritated that it started so slowly. Soon, however, you really just CANNOT stop reading. Seriously--you cannot stop. And you change your mind about who the historian is many times -- right up to the last page. (And you realize WHY it starts the way it does...) Exceptional story, great history and beautifully written. A page-turner with style and intellect!
