A Thousand Splendid Suns
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (Other Fiction)
Khaled Hosseini's works have always left a strong emotional impact on me. In, A Thousand Splendid Suns, it was very interesting to see the female perspective on the Afghan experience. Overall, it is a very tough read, but is rewarding in the end. It truly explored the many aspects of human resilience and love. -- Added by avaslowey on 01/15/2018

Bone Box
Bone Box by Faye Kellerman (Mystery/Suspense)
I did not care for the ending of this book. Felt rushed and left a lot of loose ends. -- Added by RobynDawn on 01/15/2018

Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan (History/Biography)
Interesting read; for me it was a little slow in places, especially when it came to medical terminology and findings -- Added by RobynDawn on 01/15/2018

Fatal
Fatal by John Lescroart (Mystery/Suspense)
In the book "Fatal," I had a problem listening to it (rather than reading it) with the names. Kate and Ron sound like Peter and Jill (at least to me they did). All in all, it has a weak ending. I would not recommend to book/AV. Bill Ryan -- Added by billrye on 01/15/2018

The Little Book of Lykke
The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking (Other Nonfiction)
This is an earnest and heartfelt appeal to our better nature. The author, in part inspired by world events, truly wants to teach people how to be kinder to one another. It reads like a book-length magazine article, but a good one. One definitely worth the while of someone feeling as if they need more happiness in their life. -- Added by Jcjohnson3 on 01/15/2018

A Criminal Defense
A Criminal Defense by William L. Myers, Jr. (Mystery/Suspense)
I was totally blown away by the twists in this book! It was all perfectly crafted. I found the courtroom scenes to be slightly boring and long, but maybe that's because legal stuff just isn't my thing. Regardless, the book was excellent! -- Added by jessfrey on 01/15/2018

A River in Darkness: One Man's Escape from North Korea by Masaji Ishikawa (History/Biography)
This book was a very interesting account of life in North Korea and the author's final escape to freedom in Japan. At times it was a bit basic/repetitive, but that may have been due to the translation. -- Added by jessfrey on 01/15/2018
