The Help
1.  The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The list author says:
  "Decent Hollywood story, clumsy narration for the help, better for the narrator, through quite plot predictable."
$17.46   Used & New from: $0.01

Lindbergh
2.  Lindbergh by A. Scott Berg
The list author says:
  "Excellent for 3/4s of the read, then the story bogged down. Dynamic person with a character flaw that ultimately dooms him...ego."

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (191 customer reviews)

Truman
3.  Truman by David G. McCullough
The list author says:
  "I know it's got tons of accolades, but the detail begins to obscure the man. I'd recommend it, though, in spite of overachievment by the author."

A Long Way Down
5.  A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

The Selfish Gene: 30th Anniversary Edition--with a new Introduction by the Author
6.  The Selfish Gene: 30th Anniversary Edition--with a new Introduction by the Author by Richard Dawkins
The list author says:

Winter Prey
7.  Winter Prey by John Sandford
The list author says:
  "I rarely read this kind of pop thriller candy.  This one gave me a tooth-ache, too rich in every detail of the genre.  But, I want to say, that it's probably one of Sandford's best...or so I'm told."
$8.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (234 customer reviews)
