This may be my favorite, yet! The romance with Sookie and Eric is on, hot & steamy! My favorite part & I think I have been reading 8 books to get here! Yum.
If you don't know it, I love character driven novels. I enjoy reading the depths of personality in characters and enjoy how this moves me emotionally. Little Bee moved me a great deal. I could relate to the working woman, driven to advance her career; the wife that is struggling to balance career and family life; and the mother that is raising a delightful male child. I could also relate to Little Bee, with her wisdom and calm. Unlike most of us in this country she was strangely at ease in her elements, focusing on what she could change and sometimes this was only her life or death.
I understand why I have read online that people are concerned about spoiling this novel. I, too, will choose not to spoil it by not revealing too much.
But read it. Read it and weep, read it and laugh, then sit still for a few moments letting it all sink in.

These are wonderfully written, keeping one guessing from the start. I like how details are completely eliminated or minimized but come back later as a slam dunk in Sherlock's synopsis.
I can't help but see Robert Downey, Jr. as Sherlock since the movie came out a year or so ago but I think he fits! I don't think he fits for the Mary Russell Sherlock somehow but I can see Robert Downey, Jr's Sherlock all over this novel. Either he really nailed the character or he really is the character.
I will go on to read the other Conan Doyle Sherlock stories, I can download them free from www.epub.com onto my Nook Color, I am really looking forward to it!

art. This happens sometimes & isn't always the best way to choose a novel!
However, I found this a fun read. The concept of a mob killer in witness protection, as a doctor was pretty amusing.
I liked the tough language (surprise...) coming from this supposed medical
professional. While I enjoyed this I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The flavor isn't for everyone plus it wasn't what I would call"stellar".
Fun, amusing, yes. Stellar, no.
