The Rope (Anna Pigeon Mysteries) by Nevada Barr
The Rope (Anna Pigeon Mysteries)

jeanluann, March 22, 2012

This is probably the best book in the Anna Pigeon series. The descriptions of the sandstone and the feelings of each person were so realistic and true to life. Finding out how Anna got into the park service was very interesting.
The book left you with feeling you really knew the people in it.
I would recommend this to everyone.

Son of Stone (Stone Barrington Novels) by Stuart Woods
Son of Stone (Stone Barrington Novels)

This was such a disappointment. The plot was worthless. The people were cardboard. You never really cared about any of the characters in this story. I think he must have hired a 12 year old kid to write the entire book.
I don't understand how such a writer could come up with a book that is so uninspiring. I don't believe I will be
reading any more of his books.

Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will by Judith Schalansky
Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will

jeanluann, January 5, 2011

Always we look for the tantalizing and beckoning places of solitude. Ever since
high school I have had the desire to seek these islands and to learn and see for
myself what they have to say to me. Alas, this book is the closest I will ever
get to realizing my dream.
This is a great book for the armchair explorer.

The Shack by Wm. Paul Young
The Shack

A very unique way of seeing how God wants to relate to us. It is also a great story even if you don't believe in God.
