The Knitingale
by Kristan Hannah

View in Library Catalog



Great Book. Author does a great job of portraying the story of two French sisters and the different (but somewhat similar) paths they took during the Nazi occupation of France--one making the best of a terrible situation and the other "headstrong" one joining the French resistance fighters--the many rules implemented by the Nazis, the daily trials of living among the Nazis, the deportation of French Jews to concentration/work camps in Germany and other parts of Eastern Europe, the personal struggle of one sister trying to keep herself and her daughter safe. The lessons she learned living with a "gentlemanly" German Captain and later with a brutal SS Officer. I love the way Kristin Hannah tells stories. You can't put the book down. Fantastic book. Another must read.

Velocity
by Dean Koontz

View in Library Catalog



Having read many novels by Koontz this was one of the more disappointing ones. It started out with an interesting premise but by the mid-point my interest started to wan. The story seemed to plateau and the main protagonist’s actions seemed so clinical and unfeeling at times that I stopped caring. The latter part of the book felt rushed as Koontz tried to wrap up all the loose ends.
