It’s one of the best books I’ve read for now! There’s everything what I like – science, biography, humor. Richard Feynman is a Nobel Prize winner in physics. He tells here, inter alia, about his work on creating the atom bomb, about his performances in a band playing samba music, about trying to get how to flirt with girls, about an attempt to fool the bureaucracy etc, so as you can see, there’s diversity in all its finest. We like this eccentric scientist or we don’t. It’s impossible to pass by this man. In my case it was the love from the first pages of the book. I like very much logical approach to every aspects of life, science. And here this is exactly what we get from Feynman – realism. „Surely…” it’s a collection of memories of the author, autobiography, full of adventures and anecdotes story. You don’t have to be even a scientist to read this book, it’s good for an average reader too. I love intelligent humor so I’m sure I’ll get back to books of this author.
One summer’s day to a seaside town comes a secret woman. She rents a small house out of the road and she starts to work as a weitress in a local pub. She’s not too sociable and doesn’t try to make too personal contacts with locals. Suddenly she’s get an attention of a seller of some market – a nice widower who for years used to work in the army as a therapist of abused women. Every woman could trust Alex, but the main character – Kate – because of her past, decides to keep her distance. Out of the blue, in spite of herself, she starts to get involved more and more in his life. One day Kate meets her female neighbour. This girl works as a psychologist and after work she tries to fix her house. Together with Kate they spend very nice woman’s evenings. But the other day Kate notices that Joe moved out of here. And even more, she’s never lived here before… Who was she, in this case? And what was her influence on Alex and Kate’s relation? This is my second meeting with Sparks. And again I have to admit that he’s a master of stories. But also again I find it’s not my style. I want a romantic book to give me „butterflies” of excitement, and not only „butterflies” of the fear. However I recommend this book, because the way it was written is really great.
A romantic book doesn’t have to be „happy ended”, but it can still speed up the heartbeat. Sparks is a master of a stories. About letters in bottles we used to read in legends or tales about overseas journeys. This time such experience happens to the main character of the book – Theresa Osborne. One day by the shore of the ocean Theresa finds a bottle which contains a romantic and very personal letter written by a man to his late wife. Intrigued by the letter, Theresa, decides to find the author of the message. She doesn’t have to wait too long for the results of her plan. Soon she meets Garrett – an almost perfect man, but is he dedicated exactly to her? The book is really nice and very well written. I recommend it especially to women, because they like something like melodramas. For me the book is good, but it was just a little bit sad. And this is not what I expect from books where there’s seething from feelings. I’ll get back to creation of Sparks to give him a chance to get my „appreciation”
The book is about adventures od siblings in Śmietankowo. We have here two slim young boys – Munio and Tunio, and their little sister, who is affectionally called as a Radish, because she doesn’t eat meat. Ptaszkowscy family is moving to a village, there’s summer, so also the mood of the book is idyllic. There are also one more member of the family – a chicken named Franciszek Unconversable (however, it sounds weird in english :)). At the beginning, the book was too „sweet” and childish for me. But with every page I started to get use to the style of writting of the author. During reading I noticed also that I delve into the book as much as it’s enough to be intrigued what will be later (because we have here also, quite good, sensational topic). This is my first meeting with the creation od Małgorzata Musierowicz, but I think I will get back to her books, when I will need a book, which reminds me carefree summer season while there’ll be a cold fall’s evening outside.
A psychopatic murderer kills women to relieve them from a sin. He always leaves a piece of paper on their bodies, where’s written: „her sins are forgiven”. Tess Court is involved in the investigation. She’s a psychiatrist with years of experiences. She’s going to help the police to determine the psychological portrait of the murderer. It turns out that this task makes her being closer to one of police officers. But it’s also a risk because Tess becomes the next goal of the murderer. „Sacred sins”, same as „Brazen virtue”, is a detective story, so actually it’s not what I like. But I think that Nora Roberts can create a good romantic story even from the ugliest scenario. The only difficult thing for me to read about, was the way of thinking of the murderer. I’m not too interested in what’s inside minds of such people However the book was very interesting and I couldn’t have waited for unravel the mistery – who did this all?
The main character here is Grace McCabe, but her sister – Kathleen, is the sense of the whole book. She’s divorced and she needs an extra work to pay a lawyer and set up a legal case to regain custody of her son. This extra job is…phone sex. Kathleen is sure that this is totally safe job and her personal data won’t go outside the company. But impossible becomes possible and the woman is murdered by a man, who is in love with her voice. Grace, who has been written crime stories for her whole life, when she faces the real murder, she’s shocked. But she’s not going to give up and she decided to find a murderer on her own. She gets a handsome detective from homicide to collabotare with.”Brazen Virtue” is not only a romance. The main topic of the book is a murder, so it’s a detective story. I’m not a fan of that kind of literature, but I think this one is one of the „lighter” crime book, which I was reading quite well.
After watching the movie „How I unleashed II World War” I couldn’t have waited untill reading the book. I was leading by a faith that a book is always better than a movie, but this time I was dissapointed. I was searching there this funny and clumsy Franek Dolas, but in vain. Here I met Adolf (!) Dolas, who (at least for me) didn’t remind me the main movie character at all. „Adventures of Gunner Dolas” is a colorful story about peripeteia of some soldier, but we won’t find here film gags, which the movie director had to come up with, to make the movie viewed by generations. I think that these people who are fans of history will find something for themeselves here. But a reader who is looking for this famous Franek, will be a little bit dissapointed for sure. I think the book is recommendable, even for the sake of respect for polish literature.
After reading the first part – „J’adore New York”, I felt a lack of something, because the main character – Catherine – really appealed to me. So I was waiting till „J’adore Paris” will appear in a library. After all I downloaded the version of the book to my Kindle, which was just easier. The book, as I mentioned, is a continuation of the story of Catherine Lambert. She comes back to Paris from NYC. And here the entire world of fashion and dreamed job as a lawyer for Christian Dior, are waiting for her. Catherine is delighted, because she knows that as a lawyer she’s great, so she just has to update her knowledge about new trends of fashion in this City of Love and Paris will be her! But will the reality be so simple? I don’t want to reveal the story and, for sure, the end of the book to anyone!, but if a reader thought he or she will find here a fancy life in France, feel the climate of fashion shows and the rustling of dresses, I have to tell that it’ll be better if readers will be ready for something different – the world of combat forgery. „I love Paris” isn’t a romantic book. But maybe it’s good, because every time when we hear the word „Paris”, it remind us of kisses in front of Eiffle Tower, beautifully dressed women and of course the famous „Haute Couture”. And this time we get to know the face of this town as a place, which, for the price of fame, has to fight against adversity. I recommend you it!
If you want to know how does the real cowboy’s life look like – this book is exactly for you. Dust, rust, unbearable wind, huge spaces, old cars (not horses – unfrtunately) and a lot of laugh – this is all of the book’s „fragrance”. The climate of the book is awesome. A reader delve into Arizona, can say, up to the hilt. Except coroful and funny descriptions of the place, we find here also a dose of positive thinking, because the real cowboy never gives up, and every bodily injury is just a proud to him and an injection of courage that since he survived eg. loss his right hand’s finger, he will be able to survive it once agian. Life on the praire isn’t easy, because you have to pay attention to every behaviour of the nature and you have to keep your eyes peeled for everything. But calm and total clearance, so typical in cowboys, compensates it all. I recommend this book to everyone, as a novel for relaxing, and also as a dose of information about some regions in the USA.
Laura Templeton od zawsze marzyła o szczęśliwym małżeństwie, takim, jakie mieli jej rodzice. Dość szybko wychodzi za mąż, za przystojnego i bogatego Petera. Jednak małżeństwo okazuje się fiaskiem i Laura zostaje sama z córkami. Jednak jest kobietą silną i postanawia sama dać sobie radę i zapewnić dziewczynkom godne życie (co moim zdaniem nie jest trudne w jej przypadku, gdyż Laura jest dziedziczką hotelowej fortuny). Bohaterka nie ma zamiaru poznawać nowego mężczyzny, gdyż nie chce znów zostać zraniona. Jednak na horyzoncie pojawia się Michael – jej stary przyjaciel… Książka jest godna polecenia, choć najpierw dobrze byłoby przeczytać dwie poprzednie powieści z tzw. Serii Koronkowej.
Laura Templeton always dreamed of a happy marriage, exactly the same like her parents had. She married a handsome and rich Peter, quite fast. But it turns out that this marriage is a failure and Laura is alone with her daughters. But she’s a strong woman so she decides to cope alone and give a good life to her girls (which isn’t difficult in her case, because she is a heiress of a hotel wealth). The main character is not going to meet any new man, because she doesn’t want to be hurted again. But then Michael – her old friend – appears on the horizon… The book is recommendable, though as first it would be good to read two previous novels of so-called Lace Series.
