Excerpt from The Atomic City Girls

Excerpt from The Atomic City Girls

I have just started reading The Atomic City Girls, by Janet Beard. In searching it up on Amazon just now, and realized that there is also a book called The Girls of Atomic City, on the same subject, so be aware if you are looking it up that there are two very similar books out there. The Atomic City Girls is billed as a novel and The Girls of Atomic City as a true story ...

Excerpt from Strangers on the Train

Excerpt from Strangers on the Train

Believe it or not, I have actually never read Strangers on a Train before. I believe I saw the Hitchcock movie, some time ago. Or if not, I have seen enough clips about it to recall it as I am reading the book. I knew the premise of this classic mystery, but it has been interesting, it's actually quite different than I thought it would be. Rather than being a pure mystery, where there is a detective or some other sleuth trying to solve a murder, it is more of a psychological thriller where you know who the murder is, but are waiting to see how they are going to get caught. ...

Excerpt from Two Kinds of Truth

Excerpt from Two Kinds of Truth

I have just finished reading Michael Connelly's Two Kinds of Truth, a Harry Bosch novel. Maybe some of you are watching Bosch on Amazon. According to Wikipedia, the 2019 season was based on Two Kinds of Truth. Don't worry, I'm not going to spoil it for you (assuming the tv series follows the novel.) ...

Excerpt from Dangerous Minds

Excerpt from Dangerous Minds

Right now, I am reading Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich. It is the second book in the Knight and Moon series, and I have actually read the first one as well. I love the characters in this book. Evanovich writes lots of fun, quirky characters, and does not disappoint in this series. We've got an eccentric billionaire and the practical woman who tires without success to keep him stable and down to earth. There is a monk who has lost his island, and the billionaire's cousin, a hanger-on who is eccentric in his own rite. Put it together with an international threat, a secret society, and of course the missing (stolen) island, and you've got an Evanovich classic ...
Excerpt from The Camel Club

Excerpt from The Camel Club

I have just started reading The Camel Club by David Baldacci. I have read one or two other books in the Camel Club series. There are some good characters; I am particularly enjoying the OCD member of the club, Milton Farb. But I am partial to characters with neurodiversities. Baldacci is always good for suspense and well-structured plots and clues. Lots of action and thrills. ...

Observing World Schizophrenia Day

Observing World Schizophrenia Day

What exactly is schizophrenia and why a special day of observance? Here is an excerpt from NDTV:

"World Schizophrenia Day 2018 is observed on May 24. Schizophrenia is a mental condition which affects normal functioning of the brain. The condition interferes with a person's ability to feel, act and think. Some schizophrenic patients recover completely and find an improvement in their symptoms. But others continue to suffer from schizophrenia for a prolonged period of time, wherein the distressing symptoms can last for years.

Excerpt from The Underground Railroad

Excerpt from The Underground Railroad

I recently started reading Altered Carbon after hearing it recommended a couple of places, but I set it aside today. Not going to finish that one. So instead, the book I read before that: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. This Pulitzer Prize Winner is pretty raw, so be sure you're prepared before you start. Also be advised that it is fiction and some of the flights of fancy may take you off guard in a book that pretends realism. ...

Excerpt from The Light Between Oceans

I am just finishing The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. It has been a very interesting books with some unexpected twists and turns. There is some beautiful language and some very profound quotes. Fate miraculously presents a returning soldier with PTSD and his wife, who has suffered from three miscarriages with an apparently orphaned baby. But… life doesn't actually work that way… ...
