Book review The Lazarus Vendetta (Book 22 out of 150)

In yet another Covert One adventure, Smith and Company take on a radical environmentalist group with a bad leader. I'm also happy to report that they take on members of US government who are aiming to destroy peaceful environmental activists through means of a nasty plague. I found the plague scenes...

Like before, he is very functional accept for the coma he begins the book in, despite his severe autism. We also see Peter... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The Cassabdra Compact (book 19 of 150)

The second book in the Covert One Series is called The Cassandra Compact. It featured John Smith, Peter Howell, and Randi Russell (although Randi and Peter have tiny parts). The plot was a little too similar to The Hades Factor for me, but in this case the bio-terrorist nut is an American patriot in... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Earth Abides (Book 17 out of 150)

East Abides is a post-Apocalyptic, illness induced novel. I believe over 95% of the world’s population has died over some unknown illness. Isherwood (Ish) Williams is a grad student and scholar who survives because (he thinks) of a rattle snake bite. Ish discovers that is not alone in the world. He... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The Year My Mother Left (Book 16 out of 150)

This the story of a boy whose mother leaves him at the age of nine. He deals with abandonment (she doesn't call or see him for years), step parents, real parents who are not in either case, in my opinion, all that stable. This standard, not so standard, coming of age tale (because we are so used to... Sign in to see full entry.

Commentary: My First 15 books of 2011

I have finished my first 15 books. Of the titles, there was only one book by a woman. I’ve been reading a lot of James Patterson. I read the whole Daniel X series and started the Woman’s Murder Club series both of which are by James Patterson. I discovered Julius Lester, a neat African-American... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Cupid (Book 15 out of 150)

Any Latin student, ever, knows the story of Cupid and Psyche. I’m no exception. I like, every other former teenage hopeless romantic, enjoyed the familiar tale. My adult self especially liked Julius Lester’s 2007 version. I like the fact that it was such African-American voiced tale with lots of... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Daniel X: Demons and Druids (Book 14 out of 150)

The latest Daniel X book, thus far the final volume in the series, (the next one comes out in September) was really interesting. In this story Daniel takes on Phosphorius Beta (#3 on the alien baddie list who is fire itself). This book took place in London, which was a nice change, from his typical...
