The Case of the Schmoldenese Falcon (Wally Pazooza Mystery Book 1) (English Edition)

The Schmoldenese falcon is a very short police novel. The main interest of the book comes not from the plot but from the fact that aliens are the main characters. Altogether a short fun read.

I was particularly deceived by this book retracing a real tour of Japan by 2 young adults on bike. The adventure of the trip was surely amazing, but the reader gets just a few glimpses of the Japanese way of life, food and panorama. About all that is written concerns bike problems, rain, ice-creams and where to find the internet. Just coming back from a trip to Nara a was very eager to read impressions of other visitors… it turns out due to several problems they saw nothing of the park, no word is given about the deers considered sacred only in this city. This book will give you good tips however on how to prepare bikes, music and maps for a bike journey.

Très bon roman policier. JE n' avais jamais rien lu de cet auteur, je pense en lire d'autres tellement celui -ci est plein d 'actions, de mystères et ce, jusqu'au bout. Le tout se passe dans un environnement superbe, Giverny...

Very well written exciting novel set in 16th century Wales. Mysteries, political intrigues, deep characters... a joy to read. One of the best historical fiction ever read.

The author , after her mother's death, finds a photograph and starts a quest to know more about her personal family's history : her mother, Jew, rich, from a good family, fled to America at the time of the holocaust, and author seems to know nothing about it. It is quite surprising how the author manages to gain so much information on her parents , grand-parents and family altogether starting from nothing. However everything revolves around personal choices and acts, author is extremely self-centered. The book therefore becomes quiclky quite boring and doesn't give much hindlight of the the pre-nazi and nazi era. I don't see what that brings me to read self-centered personal stories, whatever the historical background.

A family saga set in Hawaii, with members issued from a mix of western and asian people. Like every multiple-generation saga you sometimes get confused with the multiple bonds linking the characters, but it truly is an interesting book, both through the well-built characters and the glimpse of history it can give.

A candidate running for congress using all social media available and a few students : what an original and up-to-date idea!
Two aspects are interesting : indeed it highlights the power of social media but also how you can teach otherways. Being a teacher myself it's a never-ending question.
This book is a must-read, it will make people question teaching practices and the role of politics in everyday life. However, too many editing errors make me rank this book as a 4 star only.

This book deals with a murder and cup-disappearance on board a cruising ship. The small world of ship crew and passengers huddled together in a mystic-themed cruise around the mediterrranean coast is well described. Inspector Grave however seems to go on my nerves with his endless quest for food, in the end I just wonder how he could have solved the case with his numerous search for drinks and sandwiches. Though it can make you laugh, its difficult to be thrilled as much as an Inspector Columbo story.

This is a good book delaing with homesickness of a german girl who has followed her parent to the US when a teenager. Moreover, at the time of the iron curtain, she has family both in west and east Germany. The difficulties in adapting to new worlds is very deeply described and with a lot of sharpness. Being a little in the same situation as the author I thouroughlly enjoyed the read. I can only rank it as a 3 star though because for a one thing it does get a little boring in the end, after her divorce, and for another thing, I suppose it will be very disorienting and difficult to comprehend the dense written and everything that lies behind details for non european readers or at least peole who have never experienced so much cultural clashes.

If it were possible to rate books between 3 and a half I would have done so. Book is very good but just a little too predictable. Still it stays a very good read. adresses a lot of interesting themes , amongst which: how people can be considered based on the colour of their skin, sex and drugs amongst teenagers. Characters are thoroughlly developped. Book contains several sensual scenes.
