Tell Me a Story: Finding God (and Ourselves) Through Narrative by Scott Mcclellan
Tell Me a Story: Finding God (and Ourselves) Through Narrative

smilesndeed, May 20, 2013

Could not put it down!!

Within pages Scott is able to guide readers into a journey of exploration. Through his experiences, some good some bad, he resonates a genuine voice of his generation that can not be overlooked. He develops through a familiar format, a book characteristics, a thought provoking inquiry of each of us as we read chapter by chapter. He works diligently to create an easy environment, between the author and each reader's individuality, fostering a gradual realization that every soul on this planet has a worthy story that can and should be heard. What a new concept. Fascinating focused writing with respective insightfulness about the unique story within every single person on this planet.

Two thumbs way up!!

From the Corner of His Eye by Dean R Koontz

smilesndeed, March 30, 2013

Long full complex novel. It will be a slow read, please don't try to skim though it, it won't make seem at all.
Koontz fills up many pages with intriguing and believable conversations between all these characters. Though many characters seem to overlap and to interchange too often to want to re-read it. At its length I felt the ending could have been so much better.

Just After Sunset: Stories by Stephen King
Just After Sunset: Stories

smilesndeed, February 3, 2013

Plenty of good short stories in this book to enjoy. The range of the material is pretty fascinating, how King continues to spin such tales in developing characters that the reader wants to follow allow is mesmerizing. Most of the short stories finish even as the reader desires more and more. Reading this gem quickly shows us why King is a pro at this sub-genre. Worth the money to get here online at, worth it for sure.
