book reviews

Lauren Obst presents There are so many colors in the rainbow. Which one are you? posted at The Very Hungry Bookworm.
“There are so many colors in the rainbow
So many colors in the morning sun
                            So many colors in the flower and I see every one”

At Imagineering antariksh presents a number of reviews:
Zohar of Man of la Book has been busy reading too.
Jim Murdoch has reviewed The Story of Mr Sommer by Patrick Süskind at The Truth About Lies, saying, "A boy's village childhood with all the traditional attributes – father, mother, brother, sister, a house on a lake, tree climbing, going to the races, music lessons, a bicycle, a crush on a girl in the class – is bedevilled by the mystifying appearances of the eccentric Mr. Sommer. Moving through the landscape in silent haste, like a man possessed, with his empty rucksack and his long, odd-looking walking stick, Mr Sommer runs like a black thread through the boy’s days. A fascinating little book, very much a children’s book for adults."

KerrieS reviewed THREE SECONDS, Roslund &Hellstrom at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, "Gritty, noir, but believable crime fiction from Sweden. This book won the 2009 Swedish Academy of Crime Writers' Award for Swedish Crime Novel of the Year."

KerrieS presents Review: BOUND, Vanda Symon posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE. "#4 in a great New Zealand crime fiction series"

Read Aloud ... Dad presents Stunning Read Alouds: The Seven Silly Eaters posted at Read Aloud Dad, saying, "The Seven Silly Eaters is a picture book that will take you by surprise. I came across it almost by chance, it cropped up while I was looking for books that would hopefully help to defuse a "fussy eater" situation in my own home..."




Clark Bjorke presents I'd Know You Anywhere posted at I'll Never Forget the Day I Read a Book!, saying, "A psychological thriller by Baltimore's finest."

JHSEsq also reviewed I’d Know You Anywhere posted at Colloquium, saying, "She was allowed to live. All of Walter's other victims died. After being held captive for 39 days when she was just 15 years old, Eliza was freed to grow up & build the life for herself that she is currently enjoying. But Walter's date with execution is approaching and he wants something from her. Can she grant his request? At what cost to her? If Walter answers the question that has always haunted her -- why was she allowed to live when the others were not? -- will she finally find the peace that has eluded her for so many years? A fascinating exploration of a variety of issues, including the death penalty, "I'd Know You Anywhere" by Laura Lippman gets my highest recommendation."

JHSEsq presents Book Review and Giveaway: Hush posted at Colloquium, saying, "Kate White's thriller, "Hush," is set in Manhattan and centers around Lake Warren, a woman who makes a couple of bad choices that may end up costing her everything: Her career, custody of her children . . . her life. It's a stylish, nuanced mystery about fertility clinic doctors who may be engaging in unscrupulous behavior with New York City as a prominent supporting character."

This provides us with a real concrete road map of sorts to happiness, bliss, and even enlightenment."
