Killing Lincoln

Great detail and explanation of the forces which affected the assination. a look backward into the lack of security and naieve attitude about danger

I agree. It's the first time I actually understood history. When I was in school my grade in history class was D. I just didn't get it. I've pre-ordered Killing Kennedy. Of course I was a young adult when that happened and we were all glued to the TV. Still, I'm sure it will be very good.

I read it and finished it in spite of the fact that I did not care for it.

Thaq Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz was an awesome story of a POW in WW2 who escaped from a Siberian POW camp. A true and riveting story. Marge

That book read like it was written by a 14 yr old boy. All fantasy and in no way resembling real life. I thought it was one of the worst books I had ever read! Read anything by Wally Lamb and then tell me what you think of this book then.

Unbroken has to be one of my favorite books of all time. As I like diversity, I've been enjoying several of Jo Nesbo's books lately. Love Harry Hole. Pillars of the Earth is also great. Also enjoy Ian McEwan and Erik Larson.

The whole series of 'Game of Thrones'. I can't wait for the next one which is coming out at the end of this month.
Also liked the "Hunger Games". This from someone who never, really reads fiction.

My Journey From Bosnia To America this is a great book.It is a very moving story about a teenaged girl and her life in Bosnia during the war and how she made it through and started a new life. I couldn't stop reading it until the end. Highly recommend.

Are you talking ASoIaF??? The next installment would be Winds of Winter and -as far as I know- George R. R. Martin hasn't even STARTED writing it.

I am finding the same thing. I have picked it up about three times now, but just cannot find anything there to hold my attention.

Has anyone read "Wolf Hall" and liked it? I'm trying to read it for the second time and I still can't get into it. How many pages do I have to read before I can start understanding why it won the Man Booker Award.

The Dropper by Ron Mclarty is a page turner in addition to being a book of detailed characterization, place and time--and the adolescent/post-adolescent sex in the book offers a real depiction of those grapplings than the soft core porn of FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY. And this is a book for everyone from late teens to those in their golden years.
