Currently Reading

I am currently reading, or trying to get into, "Snow Falling on Cedars" and I only on Chapter 4. Though I think I have come to a part where the books is starting to catch me. This is one of my Challenge list books of 2010, so we will see where this takes me! Working on it though!

Below is a picture of where the book is taking place!

The Husband

By: Dean Koontz 3/5

This is an audio book, my first audio book. I think the book was interesting, it is certainly a great way to get through traffic. The books keeps you suspended, and it was pretty far fetched ideas, but for someone who always sees the next thing happening, I did not see the end! I really didn't! As this was my first audio book, I wouldn't know what to say about the production, but it was OK.

The Heretics Daughter

By: Kathleen Kent 3/5

The book, a National Bestseller makes me realize where the majority of the US population stands in respects to knowing a true literary piece. “The Heretics Daughter”, while not a literary piece, and not that in-depth, was a great story. Long at times, with parts that seems unnecessary the story had a flow.  It seemed that once the family was in prison, the story got interesting and you cared a lot more for the characters. The story leads you to believe in what would happen if….  The story is historical fiction, and the Salem Witch trials 100% existed, and this story has the personal touch of Ms. Kent’s grandmother once removed was Martha Carrier!

Did Martha possess powers such as telling the weather? Maybe. Though I believe the idea is that this family had more knowledge and know how than others, which made many fear them as witches.  Was the family indeed witches, No.

Over all it was a good book!
