The Bone Tree (Penn Cage)
The Bone Tree (Penn Cage)
by Greg Iles
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $17.23

5.0 out of 5 stars What can you say about a genius and his latest book?, May 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have often compared Greg Iles to be our generation's Faulkner. And man can this gentleman write!!!
The Bone Tree is the latest of the Penn Cage saga, that started with one on my favorite books, The Quiet Game.
The way Mr. Iles has weaved us the modern South which may or may not have made strides in the progress of equal rights, evil organizations, and the machinations of family is nothing short of brilliant--
The Cage family is local royalty. Dr. Cage and his family have helped many and in his office, he treated black and white alike.
Penn Cage and his daughter come home after his wife's death to start a new life.
You really have to start from The Quiet Game to fully understand the good, bad and the ugly.
The Bone Tree is the latest in the series.
The more Cage books, the longer they get as the information is so amazing.
This is an 800 page book.
I have a Kindle and ordered it, but my router died so I got the hard copy.
Most of the story needs the explanation and pages fly by.
You will come to see there is no black or white but shades of grey.
And oh my, the writing is brilliant.
You will run the gamut of emotions reading The Bone Tree. I reread the latter pages many times to let things sink in.

There is one more in the Penn Cage book series and cannot wait. To cry, to read with my mouth opened in amazement, to let this family and story sink in, in words of prose that read like poetry. The impact sometimes hitting you in the gut, and realizing your family has done both good and bad and created a chain of events even they couldn't have imagine.
Mr. Iles has been through a lot, and for the good is newly married, but how he can write!!!!!
I am ashamed I have been writing my novel for three years but there are reasons for that.. If only my words touch people, I'll do a jig.

If you want brilliance, choose Greg Iles every time. You will not regret any page read.
Mr. Iles, I hope one day to meet you at a signing to shake the hand of one of the best writers of our time.
If you are up to date in the Cage saga, read The Bone Tree. It will change you in many ways.
This is how to write classics that will last forever...
Bravo, Greg Iles.

Excellent product that give excellent results.

Excellent easy fine product.

5.0 out of 5 stars The possibilities are there to make this diet fit you -- but you have to start, January 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Maybe works for a man to fast and then go to the gym,but a woman with kids a heavy home,shuttling kids here or there, it didn't click. Until folks who really went through this program gave me the encouragement that you don't need a gym, you can do jumping jacks, etc just to keep moving while doing this unusual diet.
I am in process of changing my review due to Josh's feedback, and the wonderful author's encouragement I change my review to this may be doable and I will reread and plan and do it.
Work in process! Keep Ya posted!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that has the power to change your life!, November 16, 2014
I have always thought that John Paul Carinci is our generation's Dale Carnegie.
His knowledge and soul reach out and hold you and you are being enlightened with tools that not only touch you, but makes you a better person.

He speaks clearly from the heart and gives us fabulous quotations from famous people that change your world, making you a better person and a better soul.

The core of this work is how to get ahead and stand out in a crowd.
Shows you the motivators and special quotes make you that person that makes you unique and special person that will forever change your world.

The book is magic from cover to cover.
I have given a copy to my nephew and he is a go getter and has I am sure taken many of the principles and used them - a way to understand how the world works and thoughts from geniuses throughout all the ages.

To be a success is knowing you have in your hands TO HARNESS THE POWER INSIDE YOU BY READING OTHERS' THOUGHTS. This book is powerful and you need to read and give to those to help empower themselves.

Remember this title: Awesome Success Principles and Quotation by John Paul Carinci. It may be the most important book you will read to obtain that success you've always wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Paul Carinci's amazing story inspired and amazing!, November 16, 2014
John Paul Carinci is a masterful writer. Whether reading his non-fiction self-help books, or reading his fiction, you marvel what an amazing man writes these works. To read his books is a pleasure and obtain his insight. In Defying Death at Hagerstown, you see his touch in this intriguing book.

The amazing part-Mr. Carinci bought a diary off of eBay, and the genus of this story. Louis Gerhani is a washed out writer working for the famed Washington Gazette. His life has taken a bad turn and he is heartbroken and trying to drink his problems away.

He is given another chance by his editor - to write a feature article about a 110 year old woman in Hagerstown, Lolita Croome.
She is a spry beautiful soul who shows Louis her journal from her youth. There he finds during her twenties, there was a serial murder, killing young women. He starts asking questions, and starts to get threats and real dangerous situations. Someone doesn't
want these murders come to the limelight. Where there's smoke, there is a BIG fire still smoldering.

Defying Death in Hagerstown is not only a story of a sweet little old lady - it is a murder mystery- BUT it is the redemption of a good man who helps Lolita, and by doing so, saves himself.

Layer on layer, Mr. Carinci takes us on a journey of mystery and a story of one man's reaching out and by doing so,changes his entire world.

This is a tour de force for John Paul Carinci! Any book of his you learn. This book will open your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent PA System, August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a singer and my friends as well like to harmonize. In addition at family gatherings/parties, we need a PA system to be heard over the laughter, sing for the person of the moment, etc.
This product is small enough to schlepp around and enjoy.
