Book Reviews

I have recently read the following:

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows

Review - A really good book. I recommend it. The entire book is written through letters between strangers and friends soon after the German occupation of a small island near London after WWII.

Home Safe - Elizabeth Berg

Review - An easy read but forgettable. About a recently widowed author with writer's block and her strained relationship with daughter.

Heart & Soul - Maeve Binchy

Review - A very easy read about nothing in particular. I really can't describe the plot well for this one - the daily lives of those involved with a heart clinic.

Below the surface - Karen Harper

Review - Not recommended - lousy writing. A scuba diver surfaces to find her twin sister and their boat vanished. Sounds really good doesn't it? Too bad the author couldn't make it work.

The Hiding Place - Karen Harper

Review - I should have learned from the last book by Harper. Another highly unlikely scenario - unbelievable in the literal sense.

Anyone else read any good books lately that they would recommend?
