This Side of Paradise
This Side of Paradise by F Scott Fitzgerald (Other Fiction)
This Side of Paradise is F Scott Fitzgerald's preview novel and it is said that it is somewhat autobiographical. It is the story of a young man of wit and privilege coming of age in the early 1900s. The writing is extravagant and lovely as are the poems that are interlaced in the story. -- Added by thebooklistener on 03/24/2015

Ireland by Christopher Somerville (Other Nonfiction)
This book is a traveler's guide to Ireland. I especially enjoyed the section on the history and culture of Ireland. The walking tour maps were accurate and good choices. -- Added by thebooklistener on 03/19/2015

Deceit by James Siegel (Mystery/Suspense)
This is a story with many twists and turn. The question I came away with is, "Is this a totally fictional account or are there historical facts interwoven?" -- Added by thebooklistener on 03/08/2015

Against All Enemies
Against All Enemies by Tom Clancy (Other Fiction)
This recent book by Tom Clancy describe a marriage between Taliban forces and Mexican drug cartels. From what friends of mine in the military tell me, this is not some wild fantasy but something that is likely happening now. Tom Clancy uses this background to pit the men and women of our intelligence community to tell a very scary and exciting story. -- Added by thebooklistener on 03/01/2015

The Circle
The Circle by Peter Lovesey (Mystery/Suspense)
This book is a fun British whodunit. It is a light read (or listen to) but it keeps you guessing till the end. -- Added by thebooklistener on 02/10/2015
