The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum
The Bourne Identity

elgrunin, August 22, 2008

The writing style is pretty good, but he does repeat things to make an attitude. He likes to end chapters with short, effect-producing lines, and this gets old after a while. However I love the character that he creates in Bourne. A stand-up man who I could fall in love with. What is really great is that unlike most spy/action/mystery type books is that Marie is not a simpering idiot who cant stand up for herself. She is actually smart, and well-educated and helps the main character quite a bit. It was also mind boggling the kind of betrayl going on through out the novel, twists and turns of all sorts. Over all a great book that keeps you reading more. I wish the movie stayed true to it.

In His Sights: A True Story of Love and Obsession by Kate Brennan
In His Sights: A True Story of Love and Obsession

elgrunin, August 22, 2008

I read a few chapters on the aol website and was absolutely riveted. Im a poor student and I cant really afford the book, so I went to Borders and finished it in like two hours. What Kate describes is something that one can only imagine happening in a freaky fiction story, to think that this is how she lives is frightening. I wanted to reach out to her and say "Hey, Im here for you, you can count on me, I am a friend." I cant imagine the fear that she lives in, and I admire her for how strong she is. I probably would have killed the bastard, just point blank came up and shot him. Three cheers for Kate!
