I really enjoyed this story. An extremely meticulous burglar who has been a social outcast for most of his life learns about friendship and love through those he steals from. His sense of duty and ethics cause a break in his structured schedule and his life changes forever.

Very interesting read about an undercover officer who actually was accepted and became a biker with the Hells Angel. It almost cost him his normal life of family, friends, and his true identity. His story of the undercover sting with its gradual change of his perception caught my interest and illustrates the difficulties these officers face.

I forgot to review this one! A very interesting story about a boy‘s life after a tragic bombing. It‘s sad, funny, gritty, frustrating, and heartbreaking. Wonderful writing and character development. This book is a thumbs up!

I really liked this story about Jewish Germans who left during WWII and found a new home in Turkey. The story spans several generations and highlights the political climate and turmoil of Turkey until present time. I highly recommend it.

The life story of this man is both awe inspiring and drenched in history. He discovers the truth of his past late in life and once he does, all the confusing pieces from his childhood make sense.
I read this book because I had the honor to meet this author in person and learn about some German history you won‘t find in normal history books.
A must read!

My 12 year old son asked me to read this book after he read it so we could discuss it. Isn‘t that awesome?! The book is about 3 different children escaping their home countries due to war or to the political environment. Two of the children are trying to come to the US: one from Cuba in the 1990‘s and the other from Nazi Germany. The last child is from war torn Syria during the present day trying to get to Germany. Not all make it. Good read!

An Absent Mind | Eric Rill

Eric Rill takes the reader through a journey of a man who is diagnosed with Alzheimer‘s disease. In each chapter, the narrator changes from Saul to each of his family members which allows the reader to experience the full effect of the story. As the book progresses, Saul‘s disease does the same. It‘s a quick read, but a powerful one.

Three different addicts meet at rehab and discover that they are all connected in some way. The story unfolds the life of all three before rehab, during, and immediately afterward. Three endings that are vastly different and quite shocking. The title describes the characters with regard to addiction. It‘s a pretty powerful message if you look deeply into their stories.

Definitely a pick. The autobiography of Tom Robbins is definitely a must read. He‘s had a very interesting life and discusses it in detail. His journey throughout his 80+ years is fascinating.

I would rate this 3/5. This is an autobiography of a young German hacker who moves to the US because he fell in love with an older woman on the Internet. I liked the first half of the book, the second half I found frustrating due to his enabling and fully embracing the underground drug culture. He was continually a victim by allowing the abuse. I realize this is his story, but I kept mentally yelling, Enough! Stop!

This has been on my ‘to read‘ list for a long, long time. This book is a collection of 15 short stories highlighting the everyday middle class citizens of Dublin, Ireland in the early 20th century. I really enjoyed it. I wanted more from each story. I highly recommend it.

I love travel books. George is from England and takes a year long journey through the back roads and little towns of the US. The two main characters, George and Josephine (his junker vehicle), have many adventures and mishaps. This was a delightful story and I highly recommend it!

I never did a proper review here, only a recommendation. This is the first book of the series and well worth the read. It can be a stand alone read. The story is fluid, strong character development, and a great start for a first book. Two private investigators are confronted with crimes in their little north Texas town and they reveal the gritty underbelly of a normally serene place. @AllenTStClair

This book made me doubt the veracity of the media even more so than before. It documents political smear campaigns, coordinated attacks, and manipulation of the news to influence public opinion by reporters, the government, and special interests. While this is not new, it was disheartening to read how deep the corruption runs in present times.

I‘ve never been a historical fiction reader until recently. This is an excellent example of this genre. I really enjoyed this book. The whole story was about struggles and triumph on several levels: personally, culturally, nationally, and globally. I became a fan of the Night Witches.

I just finished this book. I‘ve read some reviews stating that the book is depressing and oppressively sad. Well, I guess that‘s one way to view it. Although the story does contain domestic abuse, racism, oppression, and alcoholism, the author writes beautifully and presents a truthful snapshot of historical fiction. With just a surface view, the story can be depressing, but by diving in, you‘ll notice just how multi layered and complex it is.
