"GREAT READ! This is the first book of the Immortal series. There are several contributing authors to this series: Jennifer Ashley, Robin T. Popp, and Joy Nash. The story combines mysticism, great characters and story line, suspense, and of course steamy love scenes. It was truly a delight to discover this series." (read more)

The Crow Road
The Crow Road
by Iain Banks

Mycroft's Comments:
"This is easily one of my favourite books. I loved Banks' command of language, the unusual way that the mystery unfolds. This was the first of Banks' novels I read. I was been somewhat disappointed in The Corporation in which I found his female lead character seriously unbelievable. This story, however, unfolds in this fun, creative way filled with interesting pieces from the lead character's past and wonderful development of the supporting cast. All in all a wonderful read."

The Color of Lightning
The Color of Lightning
by Paulette Jiles

Jan's Comments:
"Jiles describes a culture gap so deep that the results were likely inevitable, with tragedy for all involved. Her evocation of the plains is marvelous, and her descriptions of the protagonists and their interactions carefully non-judgmental. Although it may not have been her intent, this reader saw lessons that are still very relevant today that, sadly, we seem as a society not to have learned." (read more)

If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name: News from Small-Town Alaska
If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name: News from Small-Town Alaska
by Heather Lende

Lorraine's Comments:
"Heather Lende lives in Haines, Alaska, a small town of 2,500 at the north end of Alaska's Inside Passage. A short film available on the town's web site confirms the beauty Lende describes...a historic old town on the water, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Lende...provides a window on the day-to-day activities of school, church, local theater, parades, local politics, and changes as the town has become a popular tourist stop for cruise ship travelers and others. As the book progresses, it moves from the merely descriptive (albeit excellent and often amusing) to touching the reader's heart." (read more)

I am impressed with the way she writes like a seasoned memoirist. Although the book is sad and deals with loss, it also has a lot to say about life." (read more)

Little Bee is a 16 year old Nigerian refugee surviving in a UK immigration detention center. How she came to be in the immigration center is part of the story....The writing is captivating - and we are drawn into Little Bee's world.....I really enjoyed this book!

In Cold Blood: A True Account of a Multiple Murder and Its Consequences
by Truman Capote

Kelly's Comments:
"I read this novel in 3 days straight, I could not put it down. Capote's intense descriptions that are in 3rd person are so detailed and strong, it's as if it has all the emotion of a 1st person novel. I highly recommend this novel, not just for school reports, but also for a way to occupy your mind. But be warned, once you start, you won't stop." (read more)

"So many people (some of them here) comment that they are reading this book again, and again, and again throughout their lives -- they have lost count of how many times. I know exactly what they mean. Every time I lift this book from the shelf, I am drawn in again by its complex characters, compelling story, and Adams' tense but not overbearing analogies to 20th century political crises (here, of course, acted out by rabbits). I could recommend few other English novels to my friends more highly." (read more)
