On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to &hellip by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
This is an exceptionally well-researched and well-presented book which is so informative I bought it in paperback as well as Kindle, because I want to keep it handy for reference. The author states his narrative clearly and it is easy to read and to find sections afterwards when referring back.

The subject is delved into exhaustively, without holding back from sensitive areas that most books don't cover. There are so many insights, and quotes from interviews with veterans of various wars, it makes this book one of those I think should be compulsory reading for anyone interested in war and its aftermath. It is intelligent, thought-provoking and the author is uniquely placed to… Read more
Ecco Womens Offroad Lite Iris/Baja Blue Starbuck/S&hellip ECCO
4.0 out of 5 stars very stylish, 29 July 2014
Love the new sandals. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than other Ecco sandals of supposedly the same size, which makes a difference as they do not fit quite as well. These sandals at size 37 are smaller in length than my other Ecco sandals (All Terrain Lite) and if I buy them again I would have to go for a slightly larger size. They are wearable but my preference is for the All Terrain Lite sandals.
Casting Shadows Everywhere by L.T. Vargus
5.0 out of 5 stars Great new writer, 19 Jun 2014
I was going to leave a review of this earlier - still, it's not too late to say what a great novel this is, written in intelligent style by a new writer. If this had been my debut novel I would have been very proud to have written it.

We follow the fortunes of Jake, a teenager following his 'mentor', his cousin Nick who is an unscrupulous and unbalanced thief. Jake is strangely detached from any emotional involvement with their burglary victims. The tale is an exploration of Jake's state of mind and his erratic path through life.

Thoroughly engrossing and very well-written, this is a disturbing story that I found hard to put down. Congratulations to the author.
