Book Review:Isaac Asimov’s Caliban, by Roger MacBride Allen

Isaac Asimov’s Caliban by Roger MacBride Allen My rating: 5 of 5 stars I haven’t read a really good sci-fiction book for a long time and this one is definitely top of the line! Having grown up on the early I-Robot and other novels…

Book Review: Tsotsi by Athol Fugard

Tsotsi by Athol Fugard My rating: 5 of 5 stars Author Athol Fugard has captured the true essence of disenfranchised criminal African youth in the townships of South Africa during the Apartheid era. The descriptions of the daily life of Tsotsi, the leader of…

Book Review: Home by Harlan Coben

Home by Harlan Coben My rating: 3 of 5 stars I generally like author Coben’s writing, but this particular book just didn’t fit with my style. It’s not a page-turner. The plot seems quite disjointed, bouncing back and forth between my favorites and an…

Book Review: No Man’s Land by David Baldacci

No Man’s Land by David Baldacci My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is not the Author’s best work by far. The thesis behind the novel is excellent and I was absorbed with that once we got to the actual story. The first 200…

Book Review: ‘The Alice Network’ by Kate Quinn

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn My rating: 5 of 5 stars Here’s an award-winning level of a story by an author who has done an amazing amount of research on the women who ran and participated in, the spy newwork of occupied France…

Book Review: “Picture Me Dead” by Heather Graham

Picture Me Dead by Heather Graham My rating: 4 of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Picture Me Dead” although I felt that I could have chopped out the central 100 pages and still had a great read at 323. The boathouse to apartment play…

Bones Never Lie by Kathy Reichs

Bones Never Lie by Kathy Reichs My rating: 4 of 5 stars Here’s a really excellent book for those of you who like a bit more of the morbidity/mortality side of the picture as explained and described by someone who has actually worked in…

Book Review: Harry’s Game by Gerald Seymour

Harry’s Game by Gerald Seymour My rating: 5 of 5 stars Seymour is in his groove with this one and once again he’s got it right with his characterization, situation and the plot. War isn’t really about our morals and higher values, Queen and…

Monterey CA Aquarium

Visit the ethereal world of our Pacific Ocean with a trip to the fabulous Monterrey CA aquarium! I was blown away by what you can see, touch, read, view and even taste or smell in a couple of full days of visiting this marine…

Book Review: Beyond Einstein by Michio Kaku and Jennifer Thompson

Beyond Einstein: The Cosmic Quest for the Theory of the Universe by Michio Kaku My rating: 4 of 5 stars For years I have followed the Cosmic Quest to unite the physical laws of the universe. In many ways, the story is as strange…

Book review: Tortilla Flat, by John Steinbeck – Like a Cohort of Lemurs!

Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck My rating: 5 of 5 stars Like a good glass of wine, the flavors of this book need to be enjoyed smoothly and slowly. It’s an intriguing set of tales which illustrate the foibles of humanity as Danny and…

Choosers of the Slain by James H. Cobb: a book you’ll want to read!

Choosers of the Slain by James H. Cobb My rating: 4 of 5 stars Here’s to the US Navy’s response to G.I.Jane and a techy introduction to twenty-first century naval warfare. In an environment more hostile than outer space, America’s Amanda Garrett, Commander of…
