Fabulous book that validates the issues that introverts deal with throughout life. Will help you to understand AND appreciate yourself, your spouse, your child or other introverts in your life.

This book was a mixed bag for me. Wonderful descriptions of art and the emotions of a man who has been through the wringer of life. Personally, I do not care for the detailed descriptions of the American drug culture.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

dmard, January 15, 2014

Read the second series in the book first and loved it. I do like this book, but it goes over the top with sexual references. I'm listening to the audio and my teenaged daughter referred to it as "pornography." Personally, I prefer leaving more such details to the imagination.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

dmard, November 30, 2013

This is a charming book that can't be categorized easily. It's got a hefty dose of historical fiction, a good bit of intrigue, with a dose of time-traveling fantasy which leads to a taste of romance between a fiercely independent and modern woman who finds herself involved with a kind-hearted Scottish warrior from the 18th century.

It's a great read that is reminiscent of the Mists of Avalon.

Inferno: A Novel by Dan Brown
Inferno: A Novel

dmard, July 17, 2013

Dan Brown's Robert Landon books are all fabulously rich with history, art and architecture, but I have to admit that there's a recognizable formula in the books. That is, until you reach Inferno.

While Inferno is yet another gripping, fast-paced adventure running at break neck speed through several of the great cities of Europe, that's where the similarities end. In this volume, you never know who to trust or what will happen next. Alliances and the facts shift like quicksand and the only thing that's clear is that Landon is on his own getting to the crux of this mystery.

My only criticism of Inferno is that it will take so long for the illustrated version to come out!
