Gun Guys: A Road Trip
Kirkus Reviews : Gun Guys (March 07, 2013)

Though many liberals will dislike Baum’s conclusions (and gun rights crusaders may distrust him regardless), he offers a thoughtful corrective to the mutual ideological hysteria surrounding the issue of guns in America.


The Chemistry of Tears

Like the wondrous machine whereof it speaks, this novel is a triumph of craftsmanship and as one reads it’s easy to imagine Carey fitting it all together, balancing the pieces and turning the screws with the finest of his literary tools.


The Indigo Spell

While I'm not sure I want to go back and read all the books that came before, I definitely had a great time reading this one.


The Accursed

Though it requires some work and has a wintry feel to it, it’s oddly entertaining, as a good supernatural yarn should be.


The Dinner

This is one book that you’re not going to want to put down.


Wave

This is a memoir that will teach you about the true meaning of family, love and strength.


Dark Tide

If you like character-based mysteries that grow steadily more complex, definitely give Elizabeth Haynes’s work a try.


Children of Liberty

Children of Liberty is a wonderfully atmospheric historical tale.


Silenced: A Novel

Fans of Kjell Eriksson should enjoy Kristina Ohlsson's books with their mix of domestic, professional and political issues.


Her
Kirkus Reviews : Her (March 06, 2013)

Parravani delicately probes the fragile, intimate boundaries among love, identity and loss.


The Antagonist

The epistolary form is difficult. The Antagonist is not one of its shining examples.


This Is the Way

In This Is The Way Gavin Corbett has created a character whose own journey mirrors the act of reading and he has done this with more than the usual cleverness.


Wave

Her book is therapeutic because it isn’t therapeutic at all.


The Storyteller

Like most novels about the Holocaust, Jodi Picoult’s latest book takes readers on a harrowing, unforgettable journey.


Unremembered

Although Unremembered is not free of faults, it is a fairly decent book overall, with moments of true charm. It certainly makes me curious about the rest of this series. In fact, after the way this instalment ended, I am very curious to see what will happen next.


As Sweet as Honey

I enjoyed the richness of the characters and the complexity of the story which was told with a poet’s hand.


Donnybrook

Things that happen in Donnybrook are terrible, but also terribly funny, provided your sense of humor runs as pitch-black as grave dirt.


Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles: A Novel

Though I hesitate to describe Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles as poetry, it is at once poetic and experimental in its reach, and it succeeds without feeling blatantly poetic or experimental.


The Magic of Saida

An ambitious, passionate work about racial identity, deracination and the unsolvable mysteries of the human heart.
