A House in the Sky: A Memoir by Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett
A House in the Sky: A Memoir

andrea West Linn, February 9, 2014

This is the story of sadness and unending hope. It is the heartbreaking story of torture beyond belief imposed by Somali rebels on two young photographers. Their 13 months of imprisonment waiting for a 2 million dollar ransom made a testament for all prisoners held against their will.
The descriptions of Amanda"s travels in India, Costa Rica and South America could make a good travel brochure.
This book is hard to read at times, but one that will stay with me forever.

The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg
The Ice Princess

andrea West Linn, January 2, 2013

This is a mystery comparable to The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo.
The characters get a little complex but the plot is twisted
as the Norwegian authors tend to do. I thought this book
was a page turner and worthy of an award.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

andrea West Linn, August 27, 2012

This is a book that is hard to put down. The author seems inexperienced to attempt the Pacific Crest Trail, but has read a great deal on preparation. Her adventure takes the reader through many difficult situations and her determination and zest for the goal make the book an exciting read.

Neighborhood Watch by Cammie Mcgovern
Neighborhood Watch

andrea West Linn, October 10, 2010

Cammie Mcgovern is a surprisingly good author - an easy to read book, very free flowing.
This is a different kind of mystery and I enjoyed the flash backs which were necessary to the story line.
