The Christian Science Monitor has a small section each week where readers can recommend a book they recently have read.  Here is a reader's comment on a book by Marcus Sakey.  Kay

By J’Marinde Shephard,  St. Paul, Minnesota/ August 9, 2011

If you want a poignantly drawn, compelling story of fallible humans and ordinary heroes, I highly recommend picking up Marcus Sakey’s The Amateurs. I was given a copy as a gift and began reading it immediately. I was propelled almost breathlessly through it, to the stunning denouement, in just a few days. I am still shaking my head in wonder and amazement at this clever, wrenching, but deftly crafted book.


Imagine life with no hypothetical situations.

Thanks Kay, I'll pass it on to Marcus. It'll mean a lot to him. 🙂

Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.
