" I read this after reading Eat&Run and Born to Run. Like the other two books, this offers a great insight into the running world and would be an interesting read for anyone - runner or not.
What I liked best about this book, was reading about the Kenyans, how they train, how it relates to their lives and how different peoples views are on running over in Kenya. The culture there is so fascinating - everyone runs, but not just a few miles on a weekend - there's world record holders and marathon winners around every corner!
A great read if you're interested in Africa, running, or sports in general."
this book is a fast paced, action packed novel that reads like a movie. When Perry is forced to take geeky exchange student Gobi to prom, he gets a lot more than he bargained for. Gobi (a hot assassin), takes Perry on a reckless adventure through New York city on prom night. This is a novel you won't be able to put down!
A new urban fantasy series in the genre of Jim Butcher or Simon Green but with a fun flavor of it's own. Interesting characters and a London setting make for an entertaining read. These books are sufficiently dark and gritty to keep the hardboiled urban fantasy fan happy, but they're also solidly PG 13 rated - a great reading choice for teen fans as well as adults!
I can't wait for the next installment!
" This book was a first for me. Through most of the book I absolutely disliked the main character, frances. BUT - I really liked this story of the colonial South African diamond mines. The Landscape, life, hardships, cruelty, opression and greed are brought to life by the author.
This novel was hard to put down." - Patty
" A great sleuthing mystery as Mary and Sherlock attempt to solve the disappearance of Sherlocks brother.
Lots of twists and turns with old fashioned, intelligent detecting and all without a single cuss word or sex scene - refreshing!" - Patty
" Beautifully illustrated in soft, warm colors and with a text that everyone between the ages of 8 and 80 knows by heart.
A wonderful baby present inscribed with birth information.
One of my most loved children's books." - Patty
" The age old question of nurture vs. nature is brought to the forefront in this edgy memoir by Liz M. How a young girl could make it through her not just dysfunctional but dangerous childhood is surprising. That she not only survived that childhood but ended up going to Harvard is an amazing story of discipline, courage and love - for herslef and her wastrel parents." - Patty
