    Life By Keith Richards

    This memoir, written with the help of writer James Fox, is an intricately detailed account of Keith Richards life, both in and out of music-but mostly in. All the stories are here-the funny, the touching, the horrendous, and the amazing. Some are well known, some weren't even known to Richards-he only hears later, from others who were with him, what went on.

    Bury Your Dead By Louise Penny

    This book has a wonderful story line set in Quebec City and Three Pines. However, I was as fascinated with the historical and geographical perspectives on Quebec City as I was with the story. The plot was complex, shifting back and forth between Quebec City and Three Pines with Morin as the principal connecting character, along with the Chief, of course. If one had not read Penny's previous novel first, I'm not sure how a reader would have grasped the story line. This book was so enjoyable that I did not want it to end.

    Blind Descent: the Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth By James Tabor

    I wasn't sure when I first picked up Blind Descent that I would like it. I mean honestly, how good can a book about caving be when you can't actually see the cave itself? After two days of forcing myself to put this book down, I can honestly say it's the best book about caves I have ever read. The author does an amazing job of describing the caves and explorers. It's no too much detail that you get tired of reading...but it's enough to let you picture it in your mind. The book follows two different main characters, and reading about them and their exploits is like watching a dangerous stunt knowing that something could go wrong. As Blind Descent shows, when you're thousands of feet down in a cave, something going wrong usually means death or a close call for a caver. I think the book is very respectable to cavers, and after reading it, I am glad that more people will understand the risk they take to explorer Earth's last frontier so to speak.

    The Prince of Mist By Carlos Ruiz Zafon

    The novel starts off very slowly setting up the story but does not get going until after the first 75 pages or so. It is not until Max meets a new friend, Roland, that the story really begins to take off. It is at this point that the reader begins to get more details about the backstory of the strange happenings in the small town. It is only after meeting Victor Kray, Roland's grandfather, that we find out who the Prince of Mist is. The story is very atmospheric and rich in detail. The history of Victor Kray and the Prince of Mist is very well written and does lend an element of spookiness to the story. Even the budding romance between Roland and Max's sister Alicia is well developed.

    Cathedral of the Sea By Ildefonso Falcones

    I just finished the English translation. I very much enjoyed the flow of the story over many decades and the development of the many characters. In this story all the action takes place in or near to Barcelona at a time when Spain was split into several feudal kingdoms. At first I was concerned about the translation but soon forgot I was not reading the original words. During the course of the story I researched the Santa Maria church and was awed by its beauty and having those pictures in mind really helped my appreciation of the story. I was also impressed with the authors knowledge of 14th century commerce and customs and how it made for exciting addition to the story. As the story came to an end I felt I was saying good by to a family I had to come enjoy spending time with. Overall highly recommend if you like historical fiction from this time period.
