The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

Tom Scruggs, June 26, 2008

When I realized I was less than 100 pages from the end of this fabulous book, I felt disappointed because I wasn't ready for it to be over. The book had drawn me in thoroughly as no book has done in a long time. The characterizations were excellently handled and the plot always kept my rapt attention. I really loved this book.

Ghost by Alan Lightman

Tom Scruggs, April 14, 2008

Ghost showcases great characterization and a story that shows a side of the paraphysical world that is rarely considered. It never gives away exactly what the fuss is all about.

The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff
The Monsters of Templeton

Tom Scruggs, March 26, 2008

An outstanding read. I was fascinated from the beginning and could hardly put it down. Groff has managed to craft a novel based on history that is compelling while adding a mystical note that adds an intrigue that completely draws you in. I look forward to Grogg's further efforts.
