ADULT AND YOUTH
"007 Carte Blanche" - Jeffrey Deaver. This new Bond novel written by Jeffery Deaver is a modern Bond, contemporary and functioning in a post Iraq invasion world. There is a very nasty villian, which Deaver does well anyway, but this one would have done Fleming proud. This is much better than Sebastian Faulk's book of a few years back, and as an American author he is very good writing in Fleming's style. He is a very clean Bond, no smoking -- he still has a drink but nothing excessive. He doesn't bowl over as many women as he has in the past either or perhaps he doesn't make the most of his opportunities, this is according to me anyway. I am a fan of James Bond novels, love them and I have read most efforts by other guest authors and I can honestly say there is only daylight between this book and the next written post Ian Fleming's passing. Great, great fun. (Paul Rooney)
"Learning" - Karen Kingsbury. Bailey Flanigan is growing closer to her dream to be an actress and dancer in New York while Cody coaches a small high school football team ... on and off the field. But neither feels complete without the chance to share their dreams with one other. Can distance truly make the heart grow fonder? Or will Cody learn to turn to others to share in his happiness? And when tragedy strikes? Who will be there to provide comfort in the face of loss? As Cody's past catches up with him, he must learn to reach out for help or risk withdrawing permanently inside himself. Both Bailey and Cody find themselves learning significant life lessons in this poignant love story, featuring members from Karen Kingsbury's popular Baxter family.
"Tigerlily's Orchids" - Ruth Rendell. Is it dangerous to know too much about your neighbors? In Tigerlily's Orchids, Diamond Dagger Award-winning Ruth Rendell has written psychologically thrilling novel about the eccentric inhabitants of a London terrace -- about the secrets they keep, and what they will do to hide them.
When Stuart Font decides to throw a housewarming party in his new flat, he invites all the people in his building -- three flippant young girls, a lonely spinster, a man with a passion for classical history, and a woman determined to drink herself to death. After some deliberation, he even includes the unpleasant caretaker and his wife. He considered inviting a few other friends, but he definitely does not want his girlfriend, Claudia, in attendance, as he would also have to invite her lawyer husband. As it turns out, the party will be one everyone remembers. Living in a townhouse opposite Stuart's building, in reclusive isolation, is a young, beautiful Asian woman known as Tigerlily. As though from some strange urban fairytale, she emerges infrequently to exert a terrible spell. And Stuart's parents, always worried about their handsome, hopelessly naive, and undermotivated son, have even more cause for concern. Darkly humorous, piercingly insightful about human behavior, Ruth Rendell, whom People magazine calls "one of the most remarkable novelists of her generation," has created an extraordinarily compelling story of our lives and crimes.
