NutshellNutshell by Ian McEwan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a different book. At first I thought it weird and later I almost put it down. In the end I was glad I read it. Interesting concept well developed and executed. The idea of a fetus narrating a story where mom and uncle are the murderers. Not really a spoiler because you get the whole plot upfront. It the great writing that makes this work. In fact, better than great, often breathtaking. Cuts through to a wild look at our modern society. I liked it.

Indecent ExposureIndecent Exposure by Stuart Woods
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just love Stuart Woods books. They take me away from reality into a world that is exciting, interesting and fun. He has such an interesting life. Its just plain fun with enough current events accuracy to make it seem like it "could" happen.
Stone is stuck on the horns of a dilemma. Read it and find out how he handles things. His girl friend is the secretary of state and POTUS is his client. What a yarn. Can't wait for more.

The Tea Planter's WifeThe Tea Planter's Wife by Dinah Jefferies
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a book club selection. Not a book I would have selected but I think I liked it. I often thought the Gwen was an air-head but... she was a young woman, away from home and thrust into a situation that she had no reference for. She could hardly have been expected to behave differently. So in the end I found the book interesting and tantalizing. It was an interesting period of history and I'd like to know what happened to the family next. If this is the first book in a series, I'd like to read the next episode.
