    Finished Kate Morton's "The Secret Keeper". Not up to my expectations, from her previous books. If you are VERY nimble between 1941, 1961, and 2011 -- may hold your interest in various stages. The end was a nice twist, but nothing in the tale would indicate that. Too many brief appearances, and a confusing relationship between the women.
    Now reading "Sacred Treasure", but likely not for long ! Where, OH where, are my fave authors !! icon_sad.gif

    Ok ~ I'll go next and wake up this thread icon_biggrin.gif

    I am currently struggling with "Unbroken" by Laura Hilldenbrand (also wrote "Seabisquit which I have never read). Is this book going to get good? I am disappointed in myself in that I actually bought this book for my Nook (usually stick to Free Fridays and cheapies) and it is not capturing me at all. About a third of the way through and having to read all about foot races and then fighter planes ~ this is getting tedious. Is it me?

    So ~ also from Nook (Free Fridays) I got a book titled "The Last Noel" by Michael Malone and I enjoyed it very much. So I checked my library and they have several of his books available. Light-hearted and funny good stories.

    Happy Christmas to you all!!

    I just finished "Buddy: How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man" by Brian McGrory, a Boston Globe columnist. It relates his history with a dog and a rooster and how his life changed because of them. Fast read, feel good kind of book. It was quite charming, although I have to say, his neighbors are much more tolerant than mine would be to have a rooster crowing.....

    Dibs, you just might disappear for weeks. Those are loooooong books. I'll be interested to see what you think of the Fire & Ice series.

    Dib's...I just finished watching episode 5 of season 1. I've read all the books so far and thought I would now watch the series...I'll likely be late for work today but it is soooo worth it!

    Enjoy!

    In the midst of "The Panther" by Nelson de Mille --- I am not a fan of tales of the modern mid-east, but DH thought this was wonderful, and I have enjoyed most of his (de Mille's) books. I would think the Yemen Chamber of Commerce would have de Mille on their kill list ! Can't imagine it being on ANYONE'S Bucket List ! Described as totally inhospitable and a filthy mess -- ! I still think John Corey is a jerk, but the tale did improve about 1/2 way along. Interesting that the head gov't honcho is Paul Brenner -- kept thinking of him elsewhere in the region. I moderately recommend -- have something else available for fall-back if you can't stand it. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Happy New Year to everyone here! Sure hope this thread is not dying out-few responses here lately. I, myself, have not posted recently due to the fact that I have not read anything worthwhile lately. DH orders books from the library, most of which I at least make an attempt at, but most are duds. Right now I am trying to plod through Clancy's "Dead or Alive" but think I will soon give up on it as soon as something better comes along. I am also a fan of DeMille but have not heard of "The Panther". Doesn't sound of my liking as I too am not a fan of middle East themes. Here's to better reading in '03!

    Me, too! I have read uninspiring book after uninspiring book for the last few months. I have liked David Weber's Honor Harrington books, but my library has only a few of the newer ones, so I was a little lost on the story line, and the related series. That man is prolific! I've ordered the first book in the series on ILL, and hope to have the story firmly in my brain.

    But as to the new books I've read - eh, mostly tedious. A number I could not even be bothered to finish.....

    Two I can recommend
    "Gun Church" by Reed Farrel Coleman - a writer who lost his muse because of cocaine and fast living, who recovers it while teaching at a rural community college because of a student-with-gun episode. A little too close to recent events, but a good read.

    "The Ex-Pats" by Chris Pavone. This is a pretty good yarn about a former CIA agent who finds out some disturbing information about her husband. I was a bit frustrated that she did not figure out earlier that her computer and car were bugged, and I was a bit confused about the bouncing back between the past and the present - that may have been a function of my listening to an audiobook rather than reading a physical book. But it entertained me for a couple of weeks during my commute.

    The Road Out of Hell by Anthony Flacco is the true story about the Wineville murders in the late 1920s. The author is not overly graphic but does convey the brutality of one boy's imprisonment and the of the murders of dozens of other boys. Within the crazy family dynamics is a touching story of justice, survival, redemption and eventually true love. While not light reading, it is a book I would recommend.

    Mrs. Kennedy and Me by Clint Hill. Loved this book! It is a peek inside the world of Mrs. Kennedy that I've never before read.

    From Amazon.com, HE CALLED HER MRS. KENNEDY. SHE CALLED HIM MR. HILL.
    For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend.

    Now, looking back fifty years, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender, enthralling, and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in a North Dakota orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady who captivated first the nation and then the world.

    When he was initially assigned to the new First Lady, Agent Hill envisioned tea parties and gray-haired matrons. But as soon as he met her, he was swept up in the whirlwind of her beauty, her grace, her intelligence, her coy humor, her magnificent composure, and her extraordinary spirit.

    From the start, the job was like no other, and Clint was by her side through the early days of JFK's presidency; the birth of sons John and Patrick and Patrick's sudden death; Kennedy-family holidays in Hyannis Port and Palm Beach; Jackie's trips to Europe, Asia, and South America; Jackie's intriguing meetings with men like Aristotle Onassis, Gianni Agnelli, and André Malraux; the dark days of the year that followed the assassination to the farewell party she threw for Clint when he left her protective detail after four years. All she wanted was the one thing he could not give her: a private life for her and her children.

    Filled with unforgettable details, startling revelations, and sparkling, intimate moments, this is the once-in-a-lifetime story of a man doing the most exciting job in the world, with a woman all the world loved, and the tragedy that ended it all too soon— a tragedy that haunted him for fifty years.

    I wonder if it might be an opportune time to start a fresh thread?
