5.0 out of 5 stars New View of an Old Story, December 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very powerful movie. I had an uncle who fought on Iwo Jima, and I'm not sure he ever could have reconciled his feelings for the Japanese. The men on both sides who participated in this reunion had remarkable lives and then, last spring, an opportunity to put a new meaning to their experiences there.

A fun, suspenseful series. First episode is considerably deeper and more complex than the second.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm intrigued. First two episodes have me really wondering where this story is headed. Of course, I can't get to the third episode for another couple of weeks, but now I'm thinking I should buy the book! This production is good. I'm amazed at the sets. Looking forward to the rest of the episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read about the drug cartels or about a journalist ..., August 1, 2015
You can approach this either way: A great read about the drug cartels or about a journalist willing to risk his life to pursue this story. I've written a full review of the audiobook at a non-commercial book review blog that a friend and I maintain...

Roberto Saviano wants you looking over your shoulders, and to your right and left, looking also straight ahead, everywhere for that matter. Look into the faces of everyone you know – family, friends, business associates, clients, doctors, lawyers, bankers.

For, while you might want to deny it, Saviano contends, by looking into all these faces you will be looking into the world of cocaine. People you wouldn’t otherwise suspect are involved with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Suicide Mission, July 15, 2015
This was nothing less than a crazy idea. Four months after Pearl Harbor, with America's Pacific fleet in shambles and America's Pacific bases either in the hands of the Japanese or about to fall to them, FDR and military leaders decide to bomb Tokyo. They risk two of the country's remaining carriers and 16 B-25 bombers, hoping to get them within 500 miles of Tokyo for a surprise air raid. But the fleet is spotted and they have to launch the planes early, 800 miles from the target. Scott has written a suspenseful, engaging and informative account here. I have written a longer review for a non-commercial book review blog that a friend and I maintain. Here is the link: http://lindabrinson.com/?p=1668

While powerful political forces call for a reduced role for government in our lives today, it is important to remember that the United States once had an extremely limited government. And it didn't work out so well. Quartet is the excellently written story of the four men most instrumental in convincing the Constitutional Convention to do more than revise the unworkable Articles of Confederation, to frame a new Constitution instead. I have written a longer review of the book on a non-commercial book review blog that a friend and I maintain. Read it here: tinyurl.com/pz7csqd

In light of the recent agreement with Iran, this book has become especially important as a vehicle for understanding Israeli opposition. This book represents the views of the Israeli government during Michael Oren's tenure as Israeli ambassador to the U.S. In addition, it is also an engaging personal story. I've written a longer review on a non-commercial blog that a friend and I maintain. It's at http://lindabrinson.com/?p=1671

4.0 out of 5 stars The Real Reagan, July 7, 2015
This review is from: Reagan: The Life (Hardcover)
No one ever confused me for a Reagan fan, and Brand reminds me, at times, why I didn't vote for him. But I learned a great deal about him from this book, got to appreciate what he accomplished and enjoyed getting a fuller picture of the man. Brands is an absolute writing machine. Hard to believe how much he's produced in one lifetime. For a more detailed review of the audio version of the book, I wrote this review: http://lindabrinson.com/?p=1626#comment-15298
