Book Review: Bad Conscience

Bad ConscienceBad Conscience by Michel Quint

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Bad Conscience, a fiction by Michel Quint, an earthquake hits, bringing the worst in some people in the affected area. Looting begins in the city. The earthquake also gives two officers an unexpected opportunity to try to find the city’s hidden drug labs and lords. The book has a little of everything. Expensive cars, a bag of stolen jewels, high speed car chase and of course murder. The only thing missing from this book was act four. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. I rate give this book 4 out of 5 starts, it was crazy, and I like it! It was a very short book and would be great for anyone who would like to finish a book over one evening or one flight.

Book Review: Reamde

ReamdeReamde by Neal Stephenson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reamde by Neal Stephenson was one really long book! I thought it had some great characters and lots of actions. Definitely worth the read. I regret that I got this book as an audiobook to listen during the commute. Made it a little hard to follow, so if you do read this book, READ this book or listen in a quiet place ☺

Book Review: The Canterbury Sisters

The Canterbury SistersThe Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The main character Che in Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright is a wine critic who had a very interesting Mother growing up. When her Mother passes away she receive a note with her ashes, requesting that she take them on a pilgrimage to Canterbury as they had long ago said they would do together.

She joins a tour of all women to take the pilgrimage together. Everyone is challenge to tell a story, as Chaucer’s pilgrims did. Some of these stories are better than others, but all seem much to short. The backstory of Che’s life was the best part of the book, some of the other characters and their stories were underdeveloped.

This a good chic book to read on a long weekend when you husband is out of time. Pull up a glass of wine…but make sure it is a good one, maybe a full body red, Che’s favorite. But skip the cheese; this book has plenty of it already.
