I am sooooo excited. Just picked up the new 'Fearless Fourteen' by Janet Evanovich...


nice, I thought about buying it but after reading a few customer reviews ...hmmmm yeah! I should give it a try on my own, but I am no longer too excited :-S

Fearless Fourteen-Customer Reviews



I never listen to reviews..I have read all of her books and never have I been disappointed. I'll let you know in a couple days..I should have it completely read.



Who or what are Fearless Fourteen? Is this a popular series of books in the States?

I have just finished a book called 'Eye Contact' by Cammie McGovern about an autistic 9 year-old who is witness to the murder of one of his schoolfriends. I recommend it but have no idea where or when it was published as I picked up an advance proof-reader's copy at a book sale here in Turkey.



Yes, Janet Evanovich has a series of books starting with "One for the Money"...etc..The characters are so funny and you just can't wait to read the next book she comes out with. The same characters are in every book and I read that she based these characters off of people in her real life. Just finished Fearless Fourteen and I would say it was just ok..still they made me laugh and now I can't wait until book fifteen..

Oh you've got me interested now! I must have a look on Amazon and see if I can order a copy - doubt very much I will find one here!

It is comprised of letters from a woman to her ex-husband, detailing their lives and what lead to their only son going on a shooting rampage at his high-school.

I'm reading 'The Janissary Tree' by Jason Goodwin. It is about some murders of the modern soldiers of good families in İstanbul in 1836, which (probably, havent finished the book yet) are linked to the janissaries revolts a decade before (or smt). The sultan asks from Yashim the eunuch to solve the mysteries.

The reviews on the book were very positive, stating it has got all you may expect from a good novel, that it is really literature but reads like a detective, exotic, historical etc. It is a nice book to read, but I wouldnt have bought it on second thought. The sentences are short and simplistic and the writer, has a 'square' way of writing, whereas I prefer 'round' where sentences just flow from one to another. But it's a good book to read in the train or something.
