The Devil in the White City
Author
Erik Larson
Review
This book tells the story of the Chicago World Fair along side the story of one of Chicago's notorious serial killers. It was an interesting combination. The author can be a bit wordy at times, but does a good job describing the fair and the amount of effort it took to complete. It also gives a good outline of the inventions, concepts that came out of the fair.

The Book Thief
Author
Marcus Zusak
Review
I was really taken with this book. It's an easy one to get caught up in, particularly because I've seen the movie. I enjoyed how this is more detailed than the movie, but also not too far away from it. The story itself is not hurt from having seen the movie first, which is rare.

Review
A well-thought out book discussing America's program to distribute books during WWII to soldiers and civilians in war-torn areas to boost morale and combat the Nazi approach of burning books.

A quick read because it was too interesting to put down. I love memoirs and this one was very interesting because it involved genealogy and family secrets.

The Third Angel
Author
Alice Hoffman
Review
I used to read Alice Hoffman novels often. It has been 10 years and I thought I would read one I never have. Her novelsare always unique and her characters are intense and a bit haunted. Love and its complexities and pain are usually a part of her stories. I like how all the characters in this book come full circle and are intertwined in some way. This was not one of my favorites of hers or else my tastes have changed.
