The War Reporter: A Novel

518m6jbeZNL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_Winner of a Jewish National Book Award and author of The List and Jacob’s Oath, both of which achieved outstanding critical acclaim, NBC Special Correspondent Martin Fletcher delivers another breathtaking tale of love, war, and redemption.

Tom Layne was a world-class television correspondent until his life collapsed in Sarajevo. Beaten and humiliated, he fell into a hole diagnosed as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Eleven years later he returns to the Balkans to film a documentary on the man who caused his downfall: Ratko Mladic, Europe’s biggest killer since Hitler, wanted for genocide and crimes against humanity. Mysterious forces have protected Mladic for a decade, preventing his arrest, and these shadowy but deadly foes swing into action against the journalist. Tom soon falls into a web of intrigue and deceit that threatens his life as well as that of the woman he loves.

Drawing upon his own experiences reporting on the wars in Bosnia and Sarajevo, Martin Fletcher has written a searing love story and a painfully authentic account of a war reporter chasing down the scoop of a lifetime.

Anderson Cooper called Martin Fletcher the gold standard of TV war correspondents, and he is rapidly building a new reputation as an author. His second book, “Walking Israel,” won the National Jewish Book Award, after he won almost every award in TV journalism. They include five Emmies, the du Pont, the TV Pulitzer, several Overseas Press Club awards and the Edward R. Murrow award for excellence several times.
For three weeks he walked across the Hindu Kush mountains from Pakistan into Afghanistan with the Mujahideen, he was the only television reporter to join the Khmer rouge in Cambodia, the only reporter to enter the American embassy in Tehran when Iranian students held American diplomats hostage for 444 days.
His new novel, Promised Land, draws on his decades of reporting in Israel to paint a searing, intimate portrait of a struggling family set to the story of a struggling nation. Nelson deMille wrote, “historical fiction doesn’t get much better than this.”

🌼My Thoughts

This is the first time for this author, seen this book at an airport book shop, but I passed it up, sound interesting but I didn’t want to pay the price for it.  After my trip I had to stop at our local Dollar Tree and seen it there and thought what a $1.00 for this book, I put it in my basket.

I don’t remember much about the war in Bosnia and I was interested in what it is like to be a foreign correspondent in a dangerous setting. So I selected The War Reporter by former NBC journalist, Martin Fletcher.

I found the writing is slow with minimal action inserted. The storytelling is average.  I just couldn’t get into the story line, there were times that I found that the chapters were so long and drawn out.

I had to force myself to finish. The first half of the book was great, the second half was horrible. I am so glad that I got this book at a discount store instead of paying full price for it.  I am give it 3 stars out of five. It just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be.

 

Final Review

51N60zXWgNLIn Reconstructing Amelia, the stunning debut novel from Kimberly McCreight, Kate’s in the middle of the biggest meeting of her career when she gets the telephone call from Grace Hall, her daughter’s exclusive private school in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Amelia has been suspended, effective immediately, and Kate must come get her daughter—now. But Kate’s stress over leaving work quickly turns to panic when she arrives at the school and finds it surrounded by police officers, fire trucks, and an ambulance. By then it’s already too late for Amelia. And for Kate.

An academic overachiever despondent over getting caught cheating has jumped to her death. At least that’s the story Grace Hall tells Kate. And clouded as she is by her guilt and grief, it is the one she forces herself to believe. Until she gets an anonymous text: She didn’t jump.

Reconstructing Amelia is about secret first loves, old friendships, and an all-girls club steeped in tradition. But, most of all, it’s the story of how far a mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she couldn’t save.

Fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl will find Reconstructing Amelia just as gripping and surprising.

My Thoughts

So I have been hearing about this book, I kept putting it off, I finally decided to give it a shot.  The authors writing style was a little different from what I usually read.  I felt that it was more of a diary form writing.  Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed and now for my honest opinion of it.

I liked so many things about this book. It had a great way of going back and forth through time to piece together what happened up to Amelia’s death and what was happening after her death. Her mother, after receiving a message on her phone, decided to go to the police and insist they look past the idea that this was a suicide.

In an age where we’ve been tempted to judge people by their worst moments, McCreight brings us a tale of a promising young student’s death from a fall off her prep-school’s roof. What it her choices that brought her there? Or, was there something darker, more sinister at work? Reconstructing Amelia brings a cast of characters, all flawed, and all with secrets that weave a tapestry of deception, bullying, and cruelty.

In the end, the case is solved. Things come to light about Amelia’s friends, things she was involved in, and what really happened to her.

I did enjoy this book. It was about 380 pages but it was a fast read. It was a true page turners. There were a lot of surprises throughout the book and it didn’t drag.  I am giving it 4/5 stars and If you haven’t read pick up a copy and read it.

Hello and Good Morning, I hope that your day is going great.

I have finally finished my last review.  Now to finish reading those books that I have started and to finish updating my business Craft Page.  So on to the review.

🌼My Thoughts

I had seen and heard this book being talked about on one of my Facebook groups I belong to so I thought I would try it.  The story was well written and pretty believable. This is the first book that I have read by this author. And I definitely will add L.G. Davis to my list of authors i’ll be looking for in the future.

Do you like a book you can’t put down? If so, this is one for you. Though the events in the life of the main character are almost unbelievable, the story is so fast paced that a reader can hardly wait to see how it evolves. I liked the Paige character but her brother Ryan was so cruel to her. Paige would stand up to him, then back down.  There were times that I wanted to knock Paige upside the head and tell her to stand strong with the brother and not back down.  The theme of love for a sibling, a man (two actually) and a child is woven into the story; but I found this brother was just too much and to blame his sister for his accident.   I found the storyline was really good and I did not see the end coming.

I highly recommend this book. A lot of twists and turns.  Well written book! I am giving this 5/5 stars.

Friday Vibes

Challenges

When I was in middle school, we had a read a thon, through our English class.  You had to commit and get sponsors and they would pledge money and all the proceeds would go to Muscular dystrophy, and we even got to meet Franco Harris of the Pittsburgh Steelers Foot Ball Team.  Therefore, off I went to get my sponsors, which were my family and neighbors.  I liked football, I wanted to meet Franco Harris, and I read over 50 books.  As you can see I was into challenges, why back then.  Oh and I did get to meet Franco Harris.

So I’m sure that everyone has heard or started the Goodreads Challenge.  I killed it this year 54/50, and we are only in August.   I even thought about adding more to my challenge, but decided to keep it at the 50 and see how many I go above it my challenge, next year’s challenge I will up more.

Therefore, a challenge that I would like to do is an audiobook challenge.  Since it is August, I am making my challenge of this to 5 and see if I can reach that goal.  I am not a fan of audiobooks, as some that I did start the narrator was so boring.  However, I have download one called Perfect Imperfections by Taryn Leigh.  Now let the challenge begin.

Therefore, what are some of your challenges?  I would love to hear about them.  How do they work, how do you set your challenges?  Do you enjoy audiobooks?  So until the next post I hope everyone had a great week.

Happy Reading everyone!

🌼My Thoughts

I love a good “based on a true story”

I picked out this book randomly a few days ago when I was bored and just wanted to ready something. At first all I expected from this book was a good and interesting story, but when I continued reading, I found it to be SO much more then that. I was deeply touched by the bravery and strength of the girl, and I actually cried several times when some of the moments really hit me; and wondered why there are parents like that our there.   After reading this book, I finally have an idea of what is it that a lot of people are going through, and I can finally understand how hard and scary it must be for people to open up and seek help when they are being abused, sexually harassed, or something even more horrible.

What an amazing story and a great read. Thank you for sharing such a difficult time in your life.  I am giving this 5 stars, as it takes courage to talk about what happened in one’s life.

Happy Reading everyone!

My Thoughts

I would like to thank the Fiction Care Review and the publishers for a ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

I love Helen Pryke’s writing style, this is the first time reading her books and I must say it won’t be the last.  The Lost Girls’ was a gripping suspense  novel.  The Lost Girls is a page-turner. I read 20 chapters of it in one day, because simply I couldn’t put it down  aad me at the end of my seat and wanting to know more.  Pryke gives us an insight into what an abduction does to the victims, here two young girls and into the head of the psychopath. She added some gruesome but necessary detail to understand his motives.  If you are looking for a great suspense novel, then this one is for you.  I hope to read more from this author.  I highly recommend this and I am giving it 5 stars.

She resides in Floyds Knobs, Indiana.

Upcoming: LIKE FOLLOW KILL (Oct 25, 2019) I can’t to get my hands on this one.

🌼My Thoughts

What a powerful story! I have just started reading Carissa’s books, and this one was awesome.   I had no clue what was true and what wasn’t. I was doubting, everything said by every character.

It was terrifying to read at times because the topic, now finally so widely discussed and not silenced anymore, hits so close to home; reading about Nova and her little daughter Lily I kept thinking about all the articles I’ve read and news I’ve seen in which an abusive partner killed his wife/girlfriend and/or kidnapped their child. But whereas the news articles and reports often offer a short and dry account of the events, Carissa invites the reader into the very mind of the victim and perpetrator, and she does it so masterfully that I found it chilling to read through certain scenes.

What I also enjoyed immensely is the growth and transformation of all three main characters (I won’t give away any spoilers but you’ll understand everything in the end) and the newfound strength that connected them as the case with the missing girl progressed.   I am on a search for more of Carissa’s books.

Oh its Thursday

Good morning, so its been a while since I have written or blog on this book blog.  It seems like it anyway.  And here it is August, where has this year gone to.  I hope everyone is having a great week.  What’s everyone reading?  I have started Don’t Blink by L.G. Davis.  So far I am loving it.  Well now on to one of many reviews that I am behind in.

 

51OcGlI-R4LA close-knit group of five 12-year old girls find a way to escape the encircling barrier that protects their community. Lilia tells their story as they make discoveries along a journey into “the outside”.
Using the tenacity and skills that enabled them to persuade The Elders that they should be allowed to do a task hitherto reserved for boys, they overcome doubts and fears as they encounter things they have never seen, nor even dreamed of.
They are driven partly by the ambition of one member of the group. Ultimately, this will take the reader to consider the emotions of children on the cusp of adulthood and responsibility.
Set at an indeterminate time in the future, the history of these girls and their families is as much a puzzle to the reader as it is to Lilia and her friends. You will have to make your own conclusions…

He currently has 5 other stories quietly slumbering in their tiny storage receptacles along the periphery of his imagination, plus plenty of others he does not even know exist yet.

 

 

🌼My Thoughts🌼

I would like to thank Simon Henry for an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

Really interesting story – I loved how it developed and how the group worked things out before making decisions and taking action. It was interesting to learn how these girls and their family lived on a daily basis.  The characters seemed very real and the adventure was interesting, gripping and fun even when I thought it could lead them into trouble.  There were times that I thought I was on the adventure with the girl’s, as I wanted to know more of what they would find and why it was hidden.  I also loved how the girls where the first girls to help with cuttings.  I found this author and his book on one of the Facebook book pages I belong to and I am glad that I did.  I will be looking out for other books from this author in the future. This was a great read and I highly recommend it.  I am giving this a 5 star rating.

 

Happy Reading and enjoy the rest of your week!

My Thoughts:

I belong to a couple of Facebook book Groups and this book was mentioned. Okay, so I’ve never heard I’d Christopher Greyson before, but he’s on my radar now    So I went to my Kindle Unlimited to see if I could find this book and yes it was there so I downloaded it.  It’s the first I have read anything from the author and it won’t be my last.  This was a great read and had me at the edge of my seat and I didn’t want to stop reading.  I had to find out who killed Stacy Shaw.

The story line was amazing and it had twist and turns that kept me want to solve who did it.  I would never have guessed the ending. A must read for everyone. I will definitely being reading other books by this author”, which I have downloaded a few already.  I highly recommend this to all that enjoys Thrillers, Mystery.  I am giving this a 5 stat rating.
