Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl

writermala, April 1, 2014

This book certainly does not qualify as Romance or does it? Is it a thriller? Maybe. Is Amy a psychopath? That depends on whether she is lying - exploiting the Psychopath's maxim namely, " The bigger the lie, the more they believe it." Is Nick a Murderer and/or a cheater? Read this book and find all the answers - and more. It'll keep you turning the pages and asking for more at the end.

My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares
My Name Is Memory

Whether you are a believer in reincarnation or not you will love this book. The book talks of a powerful relationship which transcends lifetimes. The love between two people thrives death and destruction and leaves us the readers turning pages hastily. A must read.

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (Summer Display Opportunity) by Sophie Kinsella
Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (Summer Display Opportunity)

writermala, February 23, 2014

Interesting book by Sophie Kinsella. The genre is 'Chick Lit," but is rather stereotypical in its description of the female heroine.It has its moments and the ending is somewhat unexpected. On the whole a light book which makes for good laughs.

Illusions by Richard Bach

writermala, October 30, 2013

This is a book written by Richard Bach, a few years after "Jonathan Livingston Seagull." I liked it on the first reading and it grew on you with each re-reading. It is an extremely well-written spiritual book told in an easy fashion. Since most of the points are made by way of a dialogue between Richard and his friend, Donald Shimoda, the reluctant Messiah, they are easy to comprehend. I would recommend that every reader looking for serious ,told in an easy way, pick this up and enjoy it. It's a keeper indeed.

The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls
The Silver Star

writermala, October 25, 2013

The Silver Star is a poignant tale of survival. Liz and Bean (Jean) are sisters who often have to fend for themselves since their mother considers herself a musician and leaves on jaunts knowing the kids are capable. When Liz and Bean leave their California home and seek out their uncle in Virginia, "The Silver Star" begins. It is a poignant tale with touches of drama and humor. It appears to be a lived experience told with sincerity. I loved reading "The Silver Star."
