  • Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot
  • Author: Bruce Leininger
  • User Rating: 3
  • Review: TCL Call Number: 133.901 LEININGER B

    Stephanie C's rating: 3 stars
    This is a good story about a little boy who remembers a past life as a WWII pilot who was shot down at Iwo Jima. It makes you think when little kids say out-of-the-blue things that there might be something more to it. He has nightmares beginning at age two, crying out thing like "plane on fire, little man can't get out!" Then it progresses to super-detailed information about people he was with and a vast knowledge of various aircraft, and when his parents researched further they found out that he was telling them his previous life story. It kept my interest to learn more, but it wasn't a great work of literature.
    For people who like supernatural type mysteries.

    Oona's rating: four stars ( maybe five!)
    Review: Well, I couldn't put this book down so that's always a good sign. If you are interested in sustainable enterprise and Africa this is the book for you! I found it fascinating plus well-written and would highly recommend it to those who are interested in this subject.

  • This is Where I Leave You
  • Author: Jonathan Tropper
  • User Rating: 3
  • Review: Teton County Library Call Number: F TROPPER J
    Marisa's rating: 3 stars

    It's always strange which books you decide to complete and which you set aside. I have to admit, I didn't think this was the most engaging, well-written or creative book I've ever encountered. I have picked up more thoughtful and interesting novels before and put them down(getting distracted by something else). So, I can say, this book DID keep my attention. I blazed through this family drama novel. Partially, I think I wanted to see how these completely and utterly lost characters would find their way to a conclusion. Maybe, I also enjoyed the references to Jewish tradition and forced family reunions. "This is Where I Leave You" was absolutely entertaining and perfect for a summertime relaxed read!

  • Longbourn
  • Author: Jo Baker
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: TCL Call Number: F Longbourn J

    Diana's rating: 4 stars
    I intended to give this a skim for reader's advisory purposes, then was drawn in by sympathetic characters and an interesting twist on an old favorite. The house maid Sarah is the same age as Elizabeth Bennet, and like her, loves reading (though with her dawn to dark workload, it's a wonder she has the time) and longs for something more. She is torn between gratitude to Mrs. Hill for taking her in as an orphan, and fascination with what is beyond Longbourn...though her few travels away are disenchanting. Sarah's story, and the stories of the other servants, unfold along with the drama of Pride and Prejudice, so there's familiarity along with new insights and new romance.
