The Horse Boy: A Father's Miraculous Journey to He&hellip by Rupert Isaacson
5.0 out of 5 stars Pure inspiration., 16 Aug 2014
There's no miracle cure for autism and it can affect any child in any family. The dedication and caring shown by Ru and Kristin to their lovely boy is truly inspirational. The dream trip to Mongolia is not for everyone, but they had the guts and belief to follow the dream & it paid off for Rowan. Recommended reading when inspiration is needed.
Shout At The Devil by Wilbur Smith
Shout At The Devil by Wilbur Smith
5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant tale., 26 July 2014
One of the best from Wilbur Smith, this is a book of two halves. The first is funny, relatively light-hearted and somewhat superficial. The second half is deadly serious under the occasional humour, a tale of revenge set in the mangrove swamps of East Africa which enthralls and holds your attention. Most enjoyable and highly recommended if you like your war stories with a bit of a twist. A brilliant read.
That Kennedy Girl by Robert DeMaria
That Kennedy Girl by Robert DeMaria
2.0 out of 5 stars A strange book., 19 Jun 2014
The Kennedys have always been a tragic family, so much promise cut short without fulfilling their destiny, & Kick was no exception. A sad story, not particularly well told. The author writes as if she were there all the time, & the characters make speeches to each other. I don't think I'll be reading this again.
