Cathmon just finished reading Endless Night by Agatha Christie and she has this to say about it.
I don't normally read mysteries, but my oldest son does and we watched the movie together, so I wanted to read the book. My son describes it as "Christie's creepiest mystery," and it certainly is. A poor man and a rich girl meet and fall in love, but danger lurks everywhere. I can't say too much about it without giving anything away, but I wish that I didn't know how it ended while reading the book. I did enjoy both the book and the movie, but of course the book was better. The title refers to a poem by William Blake called "Auguries of Innocence."
Eaglie just finished Joy In The Morning by Betty Smith and she says:
Finished first book earlier this evening - Joy in the Morning, by Betty Smith. While it was a nice story and the characters showed determination through hard things, I was disappointed with some of the language (mild by today's *standards*) - I didn't remember that from my first read MANY years ago. Was also surprised that the only thing I remembered from the story (Annie getting her hair cut) happened differently and much earlier in the story than I recalled. Oh well. Onto my next book: Pioneers of Faith, by Dr. Lester Sumrall.
Nakia just finished The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. Lots of bloggers have been buzzing about this book. She says: I just finished The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. It was really good. I would really recommend it. It is short, easy to read, and is just a fabulous story.
Susan over at Pages Turned shares some of her favorite quotes from The Secret Scriptures by Sebastian Barry.
Kalah finished Wolf Boy by Evan Kuhlman and said: I began/finished this remarkable book. It jumped off the shelf at me on Wednesday at the library and thought it would be a fun read. Well, it wasn't fun but it was well written, IMO. It's about a grieving family after the eldest son is suddenly killed. I hope to hear more from this author.
