Review Of Doctor Who: A History By Alan Kistler

513743BDDtL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

If you're a fan of Doctor Who you will enjoy Doctor Who: A History by Alan Kistler.  He takes us on a journey from the show's creation up until just before the 50th anniversary special.  We learn a lot about what it took to get the show on air the day after the JFK assassination  in 1963. Even a hardcore fan like myself (I've watched every episode of Doctor Who at least 3 times...classic and new series) found a lot of new info about the show I wasn't aware of.

I listened to this one, and Alan Kistler provides the narration for his own book.  He does a great job narrating.  Because of his real love for the show, his reading of various quotes and sections is quite passionate.

If you're one of the new fans of the show and perhaps haven't even watched any of Classic Who, you will enjoy this book regardless and learn a lot about your favourite protagonist, The Doctor.

Book Review of Mercy Creek by Matt Matthews

A great summer read.

An author with a Southern flair, Matt Matthews holds the reader’s attention in Mercy Creek, his award winning novel set in the picturesque Eastern Shore. He uses vivid imagery, strong emotions and a masterful plot. Reading interest is held with mention of a crime spree yet the mood is lightened with humor sprinkled throughout.  Highly visual and sensory, he’ll have you crying and you’ll feel young Isaac’s racing heartbeat when Jenny is nearby. Isaac learns a lot about love, revenge, justice and loyalty as he uncovers clues to arson and two murders committed in the past. Will the husband (and father) of those two victims’ decision for revenge make things right?  It’s a book to be savored, conjuring up one’s own memories about young love and heightened curiosities. Mercy Creek is a memorable story of justice and equality, one not to be forgotten.
