The Swan Gondola

This is a magical fable with the feeling of tragedy. Other reviewers have pointed out the Wizard of Oz references, and these do indeed make the book a must for the lovers of the Baum classic. But it has a lot more to it. Romantic tragedy is at the core for all the fable like setting.  The book is really descriptive and sometimes too descriptive but I loved the entire book as a whole and the story kept you interested throughout the entire book.

The Resistance Man: A Bruno, Chief of Police novel

I love the Bruno books. Not for the crime investigation, which often seems terribly complicated and not especially interesting. What really interest me is the characters and the life they lead in the south of France. The food, the farms, the houses, the people. I like the depiction of the English who live there, and the ways they relate, or don't, to the French.  I am so interested in these types of books and they are so interesting to me the author kept me interested in the book throughout.

Queen Sugar

This book has an amazing story to it and the characters in this book are so likeable and interesting it makes it hard for you not to read this book quickly and not wanting to stop.  I love Louisiana and any story that takes place there.  The author is so amazing at making a reader feel like they are in the story.

The Corpse Exhibition: And Other Stories of Iraq

These 14 stories in this book are amazing and really open your eyes to what is really going on in the middle east especially Iraq.  The author does a wonderful job of making people really see what is going on over in Iraq and how tough those people really have it.  The people over there struggle everyday not everyone is bad over in Iraq, most of the people over in Iraq are good people not evil like the media portray.

Lincoln's Boys: John Hay, John Nicolay, and the War for Lincoln's Image

If you love Lincoln and the Civil War, pick this up. We see Lincoln as a man, not a monument, from the eyes of his two closest aides. I loved the little stories that you would never hear about except from aides.  The stories that we are told in this book most people don't get to see the other side of the story.  I love the Lincoln story and every aspect of it and this book makes it so much more interesting learning about the things the aides new and how things weren't as simple as we thought.

James K. McGuire was a great man and did a lot of good things here in America.  He almost derailed Teddy Roosevelt from becoming President.  This book was amazing and I learned so much about him and the different things he accomplished during his life here on earth.  I wish I could have as much dedication and drive as this man did during his life.

Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts

This is cutting-edge, ground-floor science, and I am thankful to live in an era where I can access this knowledge. It is in the nature of science that new experiments and findings on the nature of consciousness will doubtless now occur rapidly, but this is the finest book on consciousness I have read thus far and I have read a lot of books on this topic.  The author does a excellent job of telling the readers about everything you need to know about the brain.
