The Dead Heart by Douglas Kennedy
The Dead Heart by Douglas Kennedy
Douglas Kennedy knows how to write thrillers. This is an intriguing tale of a hapless tourist who is trapped into a nightmare situation in the remotest wilds of Australia. The plot is slightly preposterous but gripping. The book is short, dynamic and very compelling.
Bad Thoughts: A Guide to Clear Thinking by Jamie Whyte
4.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Thoughts, 4 Sep 2014
Jamie Whyte writes in a friendly style and this short book is easy to read. He exposes a number of flaws in common thinking. I particularly appreciated the way he explained the Motive Fallacy and the way he demolishes the idea that 'Everyone has the right to their opinion.' However, his frequent attacks on religion and Christian belief became tedious and looked like an exercise in trying to prove his intellectual superiority.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Super Thriller, 18 Aug 2014
The first couple of chapters are rather mundane so the book takes a little getting into. But once the action starts the story barrels along at terrific pace. The plotting is very clever and intriguing. Kennedy is a great story teller. The tale is made more convincing by the attention to detail but at times he overdoes it. I found the book fascinating and compelling. A super thriller.
