The Perfect Wife | JP Delaney
Pickpick

Great story. The ending is not foreshadowed and it will make you think. If you liked Delaney‘s “The Girl Before “ this one is even better. Highly recommended.

The Dead Key | D. M. Pulley

Great story. Perhaps I liked it because the banks were evil.

Something in the Water: A Novel | Catherine Steadman
Pickpick

Told by the wife. Good story. But the author never gives the why of the known bad guy or the mysterious bad guy.

Sad story particularly because of how bad the company leadership was and how incompetent the Captain was.

The Escape Artist | Brad Meltzer

Reasonably satisfying. You wonder how much, if any, is true.

Hard to read because you know what is coming. So sad that bad leadership kills people.

The Gods Themselves | Isaac Asimov
Pickpick

No one writes as well and tells such a good story as Asimov the master. If you have read other Asimov read this one. If you have not read Asimov you need to start

Tales of the west. Most of the stories aren‘t pretty pictures.

The Collapsing Empire | John Scalzi
Pickpick

Great story of greed, power and leadership. I especially liked the empress who did not want the job.

blurb

The Doomsday Book | Connie Willis

Fans of Connie Willis will enjoy. This novel is a study of frustration since each of the two main characters are constantly blocked from their goals. Kind of like most of our lives. The images of the Black Death are haunting.

You know from the start that the fiancé is a creep. The farther I got in the book the better it was.

Red Mars | Kim Stanley Robinson

If you are a Robinson fan you will like this. Interesting tale about how we react to things different than us. Doomed to failure??

I picked this book up on a whim. It was surprisingly excellent. So good I can see myself returning to it again and again when I am questioning my values.

Quicksand | Malin Persson Giolito
Pickpick

In these sad days of mass murders it feels weird to recommend a book about a mass murder. Nevertheless a good read.

review

The Trespasser | Tana French

Disturbing but fascinating characters. One wonders if there are people like dad and I am pretty sure there are

The Cure | Douglas E. Richards
Pickpick

A thriller. Starts with a triple murder and moves on from there.

Come Sundown | Nora Roberts
Pickpick

If you are a Nora fan you will like this. Usual strong female lead - Bodine- and of course Cal the long ago crush.
