Finished Comes A Horseman!


Remember that on November 17th I posted about the novel Comes A Horseman by Robert Liparulo? Well, I've finished reading it and totally loved it. The similes he uses are original and brilliant. He brought action and emotion together very well. I loved the main characters and despised the bad guys. What bad guys he had too!!! YIKES! I shall never look at the historical Vikings again without cringing. The book does not have as much art as I thought it would but it makes up for it with great FBI gadgetry and believability. It even has a Shih Tzu which is my personal favorite dog. (Of course I'm biased because I have a 1/2 Shih Tzu 1/2 Jack Russell puppy.) Anyway, I recommend this to all Thriller lovers. It is not to be missed.

So is Jack Russell your second favorite?

I envy your time to read *SIGH*--I have 5 books stacked up waiting.

Jennifer said...

I've been out of the loop for a couple days - sorry! Thanks for the recommendation. I'm actually headed to the bookstore tonight, so I will look for it. I'm also looking for great new books.

Jennifer said...

Oops - that should be "always looking"

Fred said...

Another book that will sit on my night stand. I'm going to start buying the audio versions and give them a try.

Nettie~ I guess it is! Look at the two names together and tell me what kind of dog it is. You can place the name in this sentence: "I don't know (blank blank)!"

Running2ks~ I always make time to read. It is my stress reliever! I think I'd explode if I didn't.

Jennifer~ Every month I'll be reviewing at least one book, so stay tuned my friend!

Fred~ Come on Professor! I know you can read and this one is really hard to put down. Much like Angels and Demons was.

Fred,
I love audiobooks!
I've been downloading the free monthly offer at www.christianaudio.com, and the public library in my area has a pretty good selection.
I highly recommend the Christian Audio cite!
