Trump: The Art of the Deal
Trump: The Art of the Deal
par Donald J. Trump
Edition : Poche
Prix : EUR 7,55

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Trump: The Art of the Deal (Poche)
Donald Trump presented a formidable account of his thought-pattern and the motivations that made him what he is today, especially in the trade he excels in, which is the real-estate world. And everything starts from the way he was raised and how he looked at the world while growing up. It is a mold or template that can be used anywhere after carefully figuring out the settings we find ourselves in. I have seen it in books like "Disciples of Fortune", "Peter The Great", "The Godfather" where characters forged a new path into legends.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Selected Writings and Speeches of Marcus Garvey (Format Kindle)
A great and fascinating read from a mind that was not only brilliant, but visionary as well, a mind dedicated to a better destiny for a people who were suffering and oppressed not only where they had been whisked off to, but even in their motherland where they were being exploited. It is a vision seen in Josef Nana Njike in the book "Disciples of Fortune". The amazing thing is that Marcus Garvey articulated it so well. His is a rallying work for blacks of all works of life and in all places. And in a way, it is a rally call for humanity.

A highly recommended read for those who know or want to know more about the worst nuclear accident in history, especially from those closely involved either. The insightful accounts give this book a great deal of credibility and expose the reader to the Soviet Union , Ukraine, Russia and Belarus in an intimate way. Like the voices in the books The Union Moujik, The Master and the Margarita, the people in this book come alive with alacrity.

Code of Conduct is one of the most enjoyable books I ever read recently. What particularly got me going and going was the depth the author gave to the major characters as well as some of the minor ones. which he brilliantly knitted with a fascinating plot. The style is uncommon, seen in the thrillers "Triple Agent Double Cross" , "The Sins of the Father".A must read for true thriller readers.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : NYPD Red 3 (Format Kindle)
An excellently written piece with great characters and a plot to kill for. The first page drew me in and kept me engaged all the way to the end. It was a marathon read, that's true, but an enjoyable one at that. James Patterson's partner Marshall Karp has a very engaging writing style and it looks like the two working together makes a perfect combination.The depth of the story brings to mind Janvier Chando's Triple Agent Double Cross. One thing for sure: NYPD Red 3 is going to stay on the bestseller list for a long while.

The second Bill O'Reilly work I am reading, and wow, I like his style. Thought-provoking, entertaining and insightful. With Disciples of Fortune, Legends and Lies make my second good read this month.

A smooth flowing account written with a deep insight that is inspiring. Reminds me of Anton Chekhov's letter to his brother Nikolai and Joseph Nana's account to his son Hans in the historical saga Disciples of Fortune. Accounts like these that jolt us out of our comfort zones as unquestioning consumers of narratives that do not lead us to the truth, to thinkers, analysts of the world we live in and seekers of the truth aimed at finding harmony; enrich our lives and help us to become better human beings in a world where truth often gets twisted.

I couldn't stop after I started reading this book. The story is enriched by a gripping plot that comes with twists and turns that keeps a reader anticipating all the time. Also, it comes with a set of characters that worked magic in building up the psychological thrill. The writing style is first class and the setting real to life. It is a perfect combination, which I am beginning to see as a frequent style in novels today in such novels as Triple Agent Double Cross, and Gray Mountain. Would definitely read it again.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Survivor In Death: 20 (Format Kindle)
In my opinion, Survivor in Death, which is the latest story in the In Death series, is far the most sensational, thrilling, fast-paced, chilling, and rich in plot of them all. It brought forth pretty much similar memories of Triple Agent Double Cross, with its intriguing hero. The story is pretty much built around the death of an entire family, with the sole survivor being Nine-year-old Nixie Swisher. Then came Lt Eve Dallas who leads a team that not only works hard to ensure that Nixie stays alive, but also leads a diligent effort to uncover the killer. It is an easy book to read in the sense that though it is serious in content, it is also rich in humor, tragedy, loyalty, drama, mystery and sex, tension and suspense.


Tiger's Wife
Tiger's Wife

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Tiger's Wife (Broché)
The one thing I like about The Tiger's Wife is that it is a beautifully written book. In fact, it is mesmerizing. I am awed by the creative mind of the author. Besides, it is a first book. It provides a fascinating insight into the Balkans and the myths or superstitions that abound there. The author conveys the deep message behind the story, which explains not only the resilience of the area but also the ravages that it has been subjected to throughout its turbulent history. Tea moved from the present to the past in an effortless manner, crafting characters that are both imposing and colorful.

The way the real and the mythical are blended together in this story written by its promising author reminds me of Disciples of Fortune, Gone Girl. The plot in this story is brilliant and the setting carries the day. The Balkans is a puzzling part of Europe. The writing itself is excellent. This is a book to read again.
