The Synopsis of Mabby the Squirrel’s Handbook to Flying

There are only a few books representing Aspergers and learning disabilities in young people, especially stories that illustrate Asperger’s symptoms. Mabby The Squirrel’s Guide to Flying is an inspiring and encouraging story about high functioning autism in the metaphor of a city of flying squirrels, for the high functioning autistic child and parent, by an Aspie who found a way. Because it’s about time.

Interview With Michele I. Khoury – Author of “Busted”

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Michele I. Khoury – author of “Busted” and write my own personal review of the book.

I must state that I have been communicating with Michele for the past few months, sharing author to author tips and experiences. I consider her more than an acquaintance, to me she is a friend. I did not let our friendship reflect my honest reviews of her book. I remained transparent and taking into consideration, only the book. Continue reading “Interview With Michele I.

Book Review: “Invisible” by James Patterson & David Ellis

18656055

I personally enjoy reading book reviews before purchasing a book and appreciate the time readers have put into their reviews and want to share mine in return.

Periodically I will post my thoughts here in the “book” section of my blog after finishing a novel.

I just finished “Invisible” by James Patterson and David Ellis. Here is the synopsis:

“Everyone thinks Emmy Dockery is crazy. Obsessed with finding the link between hundreds of unsolved cases, Emmy has taken leave from her job as an FBI researcher. Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire.

Not even Emmy’s ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison “Books” Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected. That is, until Emmy finds a piece of evidence he can’t afford to ignore. More murders are reported by the day–and they’re all inexplicable. No motives, no murder weapons, no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for these unthinkable crimes?

Invisible is James Patterson’s scariest, most chilling stand-alone thriller yet.”

My Review

Category: Fiction-Thriller-mystery-crime

As always James Patterson never disappoints me. One Thing I love about his books are the short chapters. There is Something about short chapters: where you tell yourself, “Oh I’ll read just one more chapter. It’s really short. 10 chapters later, you’re still reading.  His books are always  a quick read for me. He grabs my attention right away and has me turning the pages hastily in anticipation of what is coming next.

I enjoyed this book Immensely. Finished reading it in just a couple of days. How they unravelled the crime and Emma’s intuition was brilliant and extremely clever. Some parts I have to say, were pretty gory, made me cringe a little, well actually a lot. I had to continue reading a few more chapters after the horrific acts of crime were being described, just to erase the images now planted in my head.

As the events of the crimes unfold, it’s a continuous guessing game, one heck of a ride and a very surprising ending. One I never saw coming. I’m a very satisfied reader after reading the book. It was entertaining,  very hard to put down and a fantastic ending. You will not be disappointed.

I give this book 4 stars.
