The Book of Lost Things book discussion em Hogwarts Express (Julho 2010)
WWII, boy, alternate world? em Name that Book (Fevereiro 2009)


Dark tale of a boy who enters a world with fairytale characters. Although mostly an enjoyable read, there are aspects that don’t hang together.

This keeps skating further and further into horror. Two hunters find the wreckage of a plane in the depths of a Maine Wood and it disturbs them enough that they don't talk about it, but they do try to do good with the money they found in that plane. When evil finds out about the plane, they send people to find it and they're willing to do a lot to get it, but Charlie Parker has been lured into the story and he feels compelled to get involved.

Charlie does try so hard to do the right thing. But sometimes it's just making a choice of a lesser evil.… (mais)

Randal killed a girl when he was 14 and he served his time. Now he has a new name but when another girl goes missing he's a primary suspect and someone knows it.
Parker is hired to try to find out who, but it's all caught up in the second girls disappearance, to add to the woes is a mobster, the FBI and almost everyone involved. Randal is telling lies, but some lies are more important than others.

This one was tricksy, I guessed a few of the twists but I was so pulled into the story and got very invested in them succeeding. I enjoyed it.… (mais)

Who is Jeffery Epstein? This book tries to gain intel on the powerful, influential, and filthy rich Epstein. Epstein is a billionaire philanthropist turned sexual predator of minors. Filthy Rich tells of his disgusting plots and schemes to manipulate young girls into his bedroom. Filthy Rich gives you the inside scoop on just how shady money can make a person. Jeffery Epstein and all this pals from high, or low places, depending on the way you see it, are abhorrent individuals. Though a bit outdated, Filthy Rich shows the sexual deviance in MANY powerful, wealthy men. I wish Patterson would have gotten his answer to "How well do you sleep at night?", from scumbag Epstein.… (mais)
