What I’m Reading: The Address

I just finished up listening to the audio book The Address: A Novel  by Fiona Davis.  I’ll admit, I picked the book by it’s cover.  Well not completely, the cover did catch my eye….and after the book description, it was easy to decide to give it a try.

I ended up liking the book.  It shuffles from early New York City to New York City in 1985.  The two stories were both interesting and did a great job of meshing to make one complete story.  That’s a format I have always enjoyed.

What I’m Reading: The Breakdown

I just finished listening to the book The Breakdown: The 2017 Gripping Thriller from the Bestselling Author of Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris.  I saw this book at my online library and decided that I should put it on my waiting list.  I had read the previous book that the author wrote and had liked it so maybe I’d like this book too.

This is a mystery thriller.  It’s premise is actually pretty good.  There’s a lady found dead, someone who is having a break down, husbands and friends all rolled into the “who dun it”.  I had a suspicion all along but I kept guessing and reguessing what I thought along the way.  Until the last chapter I wasn’t completely sure who the guilty party was.  The book really kept my interest and I tried to find ways to sneak in some listening time.

What I’m Reading: The True Story of Hansel and Gretel

I just finished listening to the audio book The True Story of Hansel and Gretel: A Novel of War and Survival by Louise Murphy.  I grabbed this from my on line library.  I had search the site and typed in WWII to see what would come up.  This book, along with dozens I’ve already listened to were listed.  I thought I would give this one try.

The book was good.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million times, I prefer first person writing.  I get more into the books if they are written that way.  This one sadly wasn’t.  I think had it been, I would have liked it better but even with that, I did like it.  The book tells the same story from so many perspectives and it’s hard to believe that they could all come together but they do.  It had to have taken lots of concentration and forethought on the authors part to mesh everything.

What I’m Reading: The Cutaway

I just finished up listening to the audio book The Cutaway: A Thriller  by Christina Kovac.  I’ve been burning through my Audible credits a little faster than I should so I went over to my online library and decided I’d see if there was something I could find.  I like to save my Audible credits in case someone recommends a book that my online library doesn’t have.  I came up with this book in my search.  One of the reasons I decided to give it a try was because they compared the book to Gone Girl and I liked that book.

So did I like it….Yes I liked the premise of the story.  The thriller part was pretty good.  I liked experiencing the detective part of the story through the eyes of a television news perspective.  Most stories have private eyes, police officers and the like.  This was nice that it was different.
