The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Book Review

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Book Review The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins has been one of the most recommended books over the past six months. I bought my copy a few months ago and just got around to reading it. When I saw the name of the book, Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith came to mind, although the stories are very different. I think Highsmith’s book is a bit darker than this one. The Girl on the Train is well-written, I enjoyed and I recommend it, but I didn’t love it the way that so many people do. Any book that tells a story from multiple points of view, I … [Read more...]

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, Book Review

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, Book Review Murder on the Orient Express: A Hercule Poirot Mystery (Hercule Poirot Mysteries) by Agatha Christie is a book that I have been wanting to read for a while now, and I just got around to reading it.

Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach, Book Review

Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach follows his bestselling Jonathan Livingston Seagull, which I loved. I can’t say the same thing about this book, and let’s get my bias out of the way, I detest books where you have a “sage” trying to show you your errant ways, directing you to the proper path. Or it could be my introverted self, speaking, getting annoyed at the notion of some well-meaning person forcing you to speak, when you do not want to. I love learning, and I am open to learn from others, but … [Read more...]
