Reviews From Our Readers

What's being read this summer?
Here are a few comments from our Adult Reading Contest entry forms. Maybe you'll want to try one of these books, too...

A few classics are being read such as:
Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility "I really liked it- liked reading about the society & culture of 19th century English society" - Susan L.
Agatha Christie's Appointment With Death "I love mysteries! Though she didn't explain one big detail, I did not guess who the murderer was... I love to be surprised!" - Rebecca F.
Zane Grey's The Trail Driver "Good. The language is a little hard to follow at times." - Jonathan F.

As well as some books by new favorite authors such as:
Chris Bohjalian's The Double Bind (2007) "An intriguing story with a very confusing ending." - Treena F.
Wanda Brunstetter's The Quilter's Daughter (2005); The Storekeeper's Daughter (2005); & The Bishop's Daughter (2006) "Enjoyed this series about Lancaster County Amish... Enjoyed reading about places I am familiar with..." - Connie J.
Meg Cabot's Queen of Babble In the Big City (2007) "Great story. I hope there is a sequel..." - Rachel C.
Clive Cussler's The Chase (2007) "A delightful novel, stepping away from Dirk Pitt & the NUMA, yet remaining a true Cussler." - Marilyn D.
Mary Higgins Clark's I've Heard That Song Before (2007) "Was a good book, but more predictable than her other books." - Jill H.
Jeffrey Deaver's The Empty Chair (2000) "Good book -many plot twists -as always in Deaver's books." - LuAnne F.

This is just a small sampling of the books people are reading this summer and writing about to enter the Adult Summer Reading contest here at the BCL. There is still plenty of time for more adults to read more books and turn in contest entries. Some great prizes remain to be claimed!
