In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson

This book really explained in detail how the horrors in Berlin were so misunderstood and under appreciated at the time. Everyone should read this book.

I was completely lost in this book for days! The writing is by far the best I have seen in years. Now I am on a quest for more Reynolds Price. I highly recommend this great read.

FANTASTIC!!!!!! I feel as though I just spent 50 or 60 yrs in rural North Carolina with Roxanna Slade and her family. Such beautiful writing...hard to compare to anyone else I have read lately. Highly recommended, I did not want this book to end. I will be on the look out for more Reynolds Price right away...can't get enough of his fabulous prose.

This is a great read...the kind of book you don't want to end! I just hope they don't ruin in when they make the film...too good to ruin.

John Adams by David Mccullough

I borrowed this book from the local library a few years ago as a rather "punitive" measure reminiscent of the duly enforced summer reading of my catholic school heritage. I was fully prepared to be bored witless! However what a wonderful surprise awaited me. I was totally hooked from the first few pages and have highly recommended this wonderfully researched and well delivered tome to many friends and relatives over the years since. I felt like I was given a window into the lives of so many historical figures that we learned about in school. Not boring when David McCullough puts in in perspective. This was a great read.
