Jo Nesbo has again created a deeply nuanced crime thriller that keeps you guessing until the final pages. Harry Hole is very reminiscent of Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch, troubled with personal demons but relentless in her pursuit of truth. Great read!!

My wife and I loved this beautifully crafted documentary. It is so well done. The scenes with Roger Ebert at the end of his life are both heart wrenching and inspiring. Many insights into the Siskel/Ebert relationship and rivalry are offered. For movie fans this is a MUST SEE!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, July 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I ordered this book when it was first released because it received a positive, front page review in the NYT. Given that I have worked with teenagers as a social worker in a school setting for the last 25+ years, I was very anxious to read this book. I started it but found it impossible to finish. The anecdotal nature of the writing really turned me off. The stories she relates are clearly presented in a very biased manner. She sells the point HARD. It turned me off. I skimmed her conclusion to see if there was something I may have missed ... I found nothing. Not for me.

It has been 40 years since I have visited Middle Earth and this summer I decided it was time for a return trip. The first step on the journey was amazing. It brought back so many memories of my first read back in the early 70's. Great tale! I can't wait to dive into the Trilogy!

I am really liking this GPS watch. I've had a Garmin for the last 8-10 years. I really like the features on this watch. It seems to pick satellites much faster than my previous watches. I used it in the Grand Canyon. So far so good

This review is from: Brewster: A Novel (Paperback)
This book is set in the sleepy town of Brewster in NY state. The time is late sixties. Jon Mosher is budding high school track star, his best friend Ray is an outcast of his own making. Their story is told in the episodic style of the post modern writer. At times I found this disconcerting but overall the form works. He gets the mood and feel of the late sixties right. I bought this thinking that it was a "running" novel ... It was not. The running sequences are very good but there are only a few. I hoped for more. The book has a sweet sadness about it and is very well written.

I picked this up after having watched the first two seasons of the Netflix drama. Well written, neatly plotted. Just different enough from the series to keep it interesting. I'm looking forward to reading the next two.
