Night Corridor

by

I don't remember spotting a lot of the errors mentioned in some other reviews, though I don't tend to focus on that as much as some people do. Also, it's been about a month since I actually read it, so I may have just forgotten. I did enjoy the writing. I thought the story line was fairly original and she did keep me guessing the whole time as to who the killer was. I was slightly disappointed in the ending, though I didn't dock stars for that, just a note. Decent read. I won't complain as it was free.
Los 100 Secretos de la Gente Feliz: Lo Que los Cientificos Han Descubierto y Como Puede Aplicarlo a su Vida

Most of the stuff in here seems pretty obvious, but I think a lot of people lose focus on the things they find important. In my opinion, this book helps us reprioritize. Certainly a book that can be reread when you feel a lack of direction in your life.
Simple Simon

I very much enjoyed this book. I didn't realize it when I bought it, but it was made into a movie called Mercury Rising some years ago. The book is action packed and, in my opinion, well researched. There ARE a lot of characters, some of which could have been eliminated in my opinion, but I feel that the author did a fantastic job of taking us inside the main characters and giving us a glimpse into their hearts. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a good thriller.
The Nazi Officer's Wife: How One Jewish Woman Survived The Holocaust

Fabulous book following the life of one Jewish woman through Nazi Germany. There was so much I wasn't aware of about the lives and trials of those who couldn't escape. I highly recommend this one.

I like the concepts, though I found the story to be a bit lacking. We've instituted these practices at work and I've got to say that I'm enjoying it. Having fun at work is HUGELY important and this book teaches to that concept.

Fabulous book detailing Bill Bryson's travels though Australia. Mr. Bryson's writing is wonderful mixture of humor and history. I wanna go!
The Devil's Deep

by

First time I've read this author and I'm impressed. Great story, though I had most of the characters figured out pretty early on. Still, some great twists I didn't see coming, liked the character development and very descriptive. I'm looking forward to reading more by Mr. Wallace.
Burial To Follow

Well written though I found the concept to be pretty bizarre. I couldn't really get into the story and found that I didn't really connect with any of the characters, though I finished the book due to a combination of morbid curiosity and a desire to figure out just what the h*ll was going on.
Speed Dating with the Dead

by

When the Digger goes back to his honeymoon sweet to fulfill a promise to his now dead wife, he isn't expecting to actually make contact. Despite his career as a ghost hunter he does not believe in the paranormal. He's in for a rude awakening as he and his tour group encounter some of the nastiest of the nasties.I enjoyed the basic plot line and thought the characters were believable and well developed. My only criticism is that it seemed to be somewhat repetitive. It felt like the same thing kept happening, just to different characters. I kept finding myself hoping that this time would be the climax only to have the story shift to a different character where they went through much the same battle. Overall a good read, but not as good as some of Mr Nicholson's other works.

Artists from all over the country come to awaken their muse as a historic countryside mansion that some say is haunted by the long dead owner. Little do they know just how haunted the mansion and surrounding lands really are. Who can and cannot be trusted? Who's dead and who's alive? Is it the artists doing the creating or something far more evil and powerful?Another great story by Scott Nicholson. It's full of detail, imagination and creepy goodness. Well done.
