The mystique of foreign places draws Krijn, and he enjoys reading stories that take you to different settings, near and far. If you can’t travel always and everywhere, at least you can always read, about anywhere.
I just loved this book - couldn't put it down. Epic, gorgeous tale of two brother dealing with family tragedy, justice, revenge, aborigiens and bloodshed, and guilt. Set in the late 1800's at the edge of the Australian Outback, where life and the environment are harsh, but so beautifully described in this book. This a a great read.
Captivating story about the most powerful US spy during the Korean War era. He obtained North Korean plans, first ignored by US Army brass, and was very close to the South Korean president. He set up and oversaw a vast spy network. It is also an account of the massacres, carpet bombings, blunders,and cover-ups - all repeated during the Vietnam war, and it provides an insight to the North Korean attitude towards the USA. A trhilling true story and account of the Korean war.
A great book about trucking? You bet! Finn Murphy dropped out of college and has been driving a long haul truck for over 30 years, and wrote this great, rollicking story about it. He bring to life a seemingly mundane job of a moving truck driver crisscrossing the USA. Very entertaining.
