Absolutely fascinating read. The author is largely pulling from the published accounts (plus ship's logs) of the voyages, but tells the stories well, and ads in great biological context to the adventure story. The contrast between the two groups of shipwreck victims was fascinating, and I love all t...

This book came into my hands some 20 years ago when I was around 20 and I tried reading it for at least 10 times. The first 100 pages kept me away from the book for a long time and once I was ready for it, once I was a bit more mature, I went into this Hesse's most amazing journey. This was the firs...

I think I like Donna Leon's Brunetti mysteries more for the setting and the main characters than for the mysteries themselves. Leon has woven a enticing tale of governmental corruption (friends in high places) and payday-lenders but the scenes I enjoy the most are those of Brunetti and his family a...

Interesting topic of discussion. Illegal adoptions, people who want to be parents buy children from people who don't want them. What happens after they're busted? Where do the kids go? Their birth parents don't want them back, a foster home is most likely their destiny. Sometimes, "the right thing" ...

The co-author did a wonderful job of capturing Nez's voice. It felt like sitting and listening to someone tell stories, but with footnotes for context.I loved the Navajo cultural aspects, what Nez's life was like growing up, the ceremonies he went to, how he took that with him to war. Indeed, I woul...

Even if you aren't a history buff, you should take the time to read this book. This book is a memoir not a history. It captures the memories of one of the original 29 Navajo Codetalkers from his earliest memories of his life herding sheep with his family in New Mexico, through service in WWII as one...

A quick, easy, undemanding read, perfect for the audiobook format, and fairly typical but still good for the genre and this author’s usual work. I hadn’t read any of the earlier books in this series but was able to easily pick up with the recurring characters without having to endure a huge info dum...

This was a great book. The mystery was well plotted, the main characters nicely fleshed out, and the world so weird and full of life and beyond what I expected when I picked up the book. The melds were great – biotech allowing humans to meld their DNA with other critters to create temporary decorati...
