Hello Linda,

I see we share 119 books, which is the highest on Librarything.
You might be interested in checking out my authior website as I hav e recently published a book called The Confession of Sandy Harris.

Thank you for your interesting reviews. As I read them I thought that you would like "Lonesome Dove" but later saw that you had read it and given it 5 stars.
I found "A Song of Ice and Fire" very readable but over the top, particularly the continual sequence of climaxes through to the end. It does pull you along, but the final result is something like an all cake meal. Tim Willocks "The Religion" based on the 16th century siege of Malta has a similar high tension feel, making a good readable story, but in this case with more graphic violence.
I agree that Stephanie Meyer knows how to maintain drama and tension (I've read Twilight)and I've added you recommended "Assassin's Apprentice", "The World is not Enough" and "The Big Sky" to my To Read list.
Thank you for your contribution.
Best regards,
Noticed that you liked The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). I thought you might like my novel since it's been compared to that novel by a number of reviewers. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Glad someone agrees with me about Expensive People. I looked at all your reviews. Many I agree with but some I do not. I diliked House of Spirits much. But I have a very pleasant meory of The cloister and the Hearth, and of Lorna Doone. I confess my reaction to Pillars of the Earth was more affirmative than was yours.

I do not ordinarily like fantasy, though I got a kick out of these:
Replay, by Ken Grimwood (read 10 Mar 2004)

Memoirs of an Invisible Man, by H. F. Saint (read 25 Aug 2004)

My reviews of each are posted in LibraryThing. In fact I have nearly 2000 reviews on LibraryThing, and am hoping to polst one for every book I read since 1969--since I have post-reading notes on all those books.

. Is there a particular book which you think I should read but have not?
I like your library. Anyone who gives The Pillars of the Earth one star must have good taste.
