Cross

The story is about Alex Cross dealing with his wife's, Maria, murder through flashbacks and trying to capture a serial killer Michael Sullivan.  Throughout the book Alex deals with trying to find Maria's killer and he feels like he has found her killer, Michael Sullivan (aka the Butcher). The story was interesting and the audiobook kept my attention. The narrators were good at bringing the story to life through their different voices.

The Periodic Table: A Visual Guide to the Elements

The Periodic Table: A Visual Guide to the Elements

This book was a surprise to me on how interesting it was.  I initially thought I would be flipping through the book looking at the summary section and pictures for each element.  Instead I got hooked on reading the history of the elements and how it is used in our world.  The writing was interesting and not your typical boring scientific writing that I expected.

Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money

by Dave Ramsey & his daughter Rachel Cruze



Dave Ramsey and his daughter co-author this book giving parents advise on how to "raise money smart kids in a debt-filled world."  They show how teach your children to work and continue through with what your child should do with their hard earned money (spend, save, give).  The book is filled with principles of good money managment for children as well as stories of Dave's children learning those principles.  Sometimes a co-authored book seems disjointed but Dave and Rachel help this by identifing themselves before each section that they write.  Also by using two different fonts in the book helps the reader know who is talking.  Overall the book is similiar to other Dave Ramsey books but this one is meant to apply to children. This is a very well written book and reads quick with good practical information for being money smart and raising money smart kids.  Check our Catalog

The Railway Man

Colon Firth plays a former British Army officer, who was a prisoner of war duing the Pacific theater of WWII.  Colon's character finds out that the Japanese officer responsible for his torture is still alive and travels to confront him.  This movie is based on the best selling book, about his experiences, by Eric Lomax.  I enjoyed this movie because of the history background and the main actors.  If you enjoyed Colin in "The King's Speech" you will enjoy this movie as well.

I blindly picked this book off the shelf. I think it was the colors on the cover that caught my attention.  Matt Kelley, a rookie FBI agent was investigating his mother's death after narrowly escaping the bomb himself. Matt is trying to correctly figure out the crime, through a joint investigation with the Baltimore police, to find the 'real' criminal.  Through the whole story he is trying to figure out how to deal with his relationship with his father, a U.S. senate candidate.  The author used interesting characters and the story kept moving along.  Matt Kelly, the main character, was good at concealing his identity and had some unexpected skills.  Through the whole book it kept me guessing as to who the criminal was and why the crime was committed.  It was one of those books I had trouble putting down.
