Often blog readers contact me with opinions about books they're reading. Occasionally I overhear discussions at the gym or at the local coffee shop. So here's a combination of brief blurbs from blog readers, and breathless banter overheard on the treadmill....(Slightly edited)
Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Fowler
"Great descriptions, well researched fascinating fictional biography of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald..."
"If you saw the film Midnight in Paris , you'll enjoy this book.." "A very light but intoxicating read.."
"Hemingway was a real cad..."
Rage Against The Dying by Becky Masterman
"Fresh and original take on a thriller...engaging writing style.."
"Action packed, unique and suspenseful..the main character so charismatic and refreshing.."
"The plot sagged at times...but overall a real page-turner"
Six Years by Harlan Coben
I am currently reading this book and so far am very disappointed. I'm reserving judgement until I finish...
"C'mon Harlan...get your groove back!"

Suzanne R., a member of my book group just sent the following message via email:
Just want to say that When the Crocodile Eats the Sun is one of the best and most incisive books I've ever read---I've met the author, and he spoke at Politics and Prose in Washington. His books have revealed so much about Mugabe that I think he now fears for his life if he ever returns to Zimbabwe. He was raised in Zimbabwe by British parents and watched as Mugabe ruined the country with his thugs and machetes. For any of your readers interested in/active in international affairs and/or Africa, this is a must read.
