Review: Delirious

DeliriousDelirious by Daniel Palmer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Delirious” by Daniel Palmer was awesome…Charlie Giles, a software entrepreneur is on top of the world…he has money, success and a great future ahead of him; however, he’s missing some of the most important things in like like family, friends, love…Getting to the top hasn’t been easy for Charlie, but he’s made it…even if he’s had to bump a few heads along the way.

However, when someone suggests that Charlie crash a company meeting on a subject that will affect his product, everything starts spiraling out-of-control. Soon, Charlie finds himself at the mercy of someone who’s trying to sabotage him – he starts thinking he’s crazy, that he’s written these horrible notes, and, worst of all, that he’s murdered in cold blood.

If you read “Delirous,” it will definitely take you on a ride…it’s very suspenseful. It really takes you on a roller coaster ride, and each chapter leaves you panting for more…

I give it 5 stars.

Review: Miles Away… Worlds Apart

Miles Away... Worlds ApartMiles Away… Worlds Apart by Alan Sakowitz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Miles Away…Worlds Apart” by Alan Sakowitz was very enlightening…detailing the crime committed by Scott Rothstein, Sakowitz sends us through a world mixed with crime, greed and mystery…even murder. All the makings of a really great read, and best of all, everything’s true. He describes in great detail the dealings of Scott Rothstein, how he brings his Ponzi scheme to life and the experiences of Mr. Rothstein’s downfall of himself and the people around him.

However, what places “Miles Away…Worlds Apart” in a class all by itself, is that Sakowitz also compares the life of Scott Rothstein to the hospitality, kindness and values of his family and friends, and people in his community. By doing this, he engages his readers to learn of a different world where greed is not the driving force and riches are not the goal, but where people are actually valued and their worth and respect is the same across the board.

While reading this book, I learned a lot…I learned how easy it is to get caught up in something that can tear your world apart. I learned that some people will sacrifice their family and friends, and even their business to get what they want. On the other hand, I also learned a lot about kindness and love, and what another person will do, even if they don’t know you, to help you get what you need and want.

I give it 5 stars.

Review: Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1)Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Dead Until Dark” by Charlaine Harris was good, and I’m glad I accepted the reading challenge to read one of her books. I never had before, but I do like to stay open to different genres. This book, with it’s inclusion of vampires and a shapeshifter, was a little different for me. I’m not accustomed to reading books about the paranormal, but it was actually okay. In this story, the vampires and a shapeshifter and, even Sookie’s “gift,” is treated as normal and accepted as a way of life in this town which was a little eerie for me, but I got over it quick.

I enjoyed the story plot, and wanted the read the book whenever I could. I believe it was mostly due to the fact that it was so different from what I normally read. I was fascinated by that. Also, the mystery woven into the plot with it’s series of murders had me wondering “whodunit,” and it was surprising at the end to find out who did.

I give it 3 stars.
