It’s the last Monday of July and here are the books I read this month:
I liked this book.
It was an easy read about an uneasy subject, drug addiction.
A young working woman, married with a child, is overwhelmed
and turns to prescription pain medicine to help her cope.
Jennifer Weiner writes good easy read books that are interesting.
I can’t say I liked this book but I didn’t dislike it.
It was ok.
Last book in a series about a 92-year-old woman who was born male.
Maybe if I had read the other books this one would have meant more.
I think because the characters are all from previous books
they aren’t well defined here.
At least, to me, it seemed a lot was alluded to that happened in the past
and it was a bit hard to follow.
This is another book that has a main character, Bill, who has been in other books.
But this book stands on its own and I did like it. I really liked Bill…he seemed real.
Bill was a police officer and is now a private detective.
He is married and has a daughter.
An old girlfriend calls him asking for help.
Her son has been arrested and charged with murder.
I liked all the characters…not so much the son,
but Bill and his old love and the attorney and sheriff.
I will read more by Mr. Pronzini.
I don’t know what to say about this book.
I liked it, I didn’t like it, I didn’t like Dyer, I liked Dyer.
Confused? Me, too.
It is his memoir. And it is all about him.
From the beginning to about three-quarters through I really didn’t like Dr. Dyer.
But in the end I guess he is ok. Certainly successful.
I always like Johansen’s books and this one is no different.
That being said her books have a formula to them and though
they are interesting and have excitement and some surprises
you pretty much know who will win and who will lose.
In this book Catherine Ling, a CIA agent is sent to save a woman from a madman.
Her mentor and friend, Hu Chang, and her 11-year-old son, Luke,
end up part of the rescue effort.
There is a Guardian that the madman is trying to get to
through the woman he kidnapped who has been rescued.
The Guardian works for a Committee and has telepathic powers.
I like Johansen’s books so I recommend it. It is a good read.
