What The Dickens

Maguire, Gregory
An orphan tooth fairy finds his way the world, while three children and their cousin wait out a MOBY storm for news of their parents.

Is it a sign of a good book when you want to read more? Or is it better to have a satisfying conclusion?

The Shadow Girls

Mankell, Henning

Mystery! A treasury for younger readers

Manley, Seon, ed.
A number of stories and poems of mystery and wierdness (fairies?) by classic authors like Poe, F. Scott Fitgerald, Thurber and Holmes, for example. I kinda skipped the poetry... Favorite story was The Murder Of George Washington, by Richard M Gordon.

Rogue Warrior: Dictator's Ransom

Marcinko, Richard
I'm PRETTY sure this one is fictional. Dickie goes to North Korea to have dinner with Kim Jong Il. Of course Richard has other motives. Like locating nuclear weapons. The dictator orders Dick to find his son. Stuff happens.

It was funny how this book tied in with the book I just finished, Richard Belzor's I Am Not A Cop!, what with the Russian phrases, references to the mafiya, and the Spetsnaz.

I would like to have see more about Cho Lim, the North Korean soldier/agent/spy who loved animals.

Words I Had To Look Up:

Chinese cup garden (pg. 98) -- It's a garden. A Chinese garden. Nothing really definitive on the web about them.
"Nazdarovya" yelled the team's jumpmaster... (pg. 179) -- He yells "To your health" when they jump?

Seal Force Alpha

Words I Had To Look Up:

trickling the Jeyes into the khazis (pg. 29) -- Jeyes Fluid turns out to be a brand of disinfectant.
The joxies on the next seat (pg. 91) -- Apparently prostitutes, but I can't find any verification.
a bit of a beano here (pg. 94) -- A noisy festive celebration .
