Nightmare Alley

Creator: William Lindsay Gresham | Fiction - 2011-04-06

About this book
Nightmare Alley begins with an extraordinary description of a freak-show geek—alcoholic and abject and the object of the voyeuristic crowd’s gleeful disgust and derision—going about his work at a county fair. Young Stan Carlisle is working as a carny, and he wonders how a man could fall so low. There’s no way in hell, he vows, that anything like that will ever happen to him.And since Stan is clever and ambitious and not without a useful streak of ruthlessness, soon enough he’s going places. Onstage he plays the mentalist with a cute bimbo (before long his harried wife), then he graduates to full-blown spiritualist, catering to the needs of the rich and gullible in their well-upholstered homes. It looks like the world is Stan’s for the taking. At least for now.

Black Wings Has My Angel

Creator: Elliott Chaze | Fiction - 2016-01-19

What he doesn’t suspect is that this lavender-eyed angel might just prove to be his match. Black Wings Has My Angel careens through a landscape of desperate passion and wild reversals. It is a journey you will never forget.

Publisher: New York Review of Books

About this book
During the 1950s, Gold Medal Books introduced authors like Jim Thompson, Chester Himes, and David Goodis to a mass readership eager for stories of lowlife and sordid crime. Today many of these writers are admired members of the literary canon, but one of the finest of them of all, Elliott Chaze, remains unjustly obscure. Now, for the first time in half a century, Chaze’s story of doomed love on the run returns to print in a trade paperback edition. When Tim Sunblade escapes from prison, his sole possession is an infallible plan for the ultimate heist. Trouble is it’s a two-person job. So when he meets Virginia, a curiously well-spoken “ten-dollar tramp,” and discovers that the only thing she cares for is “drifts of money, lumps of it,” he knows he’s met his partner. What he doesn’t suspect is that this lavender-eyed angel might just prove to be his match.  Black Wings Has My Angel careens through a landscape of desperate passion and wild reversals. It is a journey you will never forget.

    Wu Zeitian never shined so bright

    5/5 Christina Kook - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Moon in the Palace (The Empress of Bright Moon Duology Book 1) (Kindle Edition) I loved this book. I have been loving a few books lately but this one is epic. I first became interested in Empress Wu when I saw a poster for The Empress of China series starring Fan Bingbing. I began to love all things Tang through the works of Jeannie Lin. When I watched the series with subtitles I became completely enamored with Wu Zeitian. When I found out there was a book coming out about her I dropped everything to get my hands on it.This book was everything I expected. It lyrically portrays all of the violence and beauty of one of China's most cosmopolitan eras. I really enjoyed the inclusion of the cut throat harem politics and plots. While this is a fictional account, I am sure many similar events did happen. Overall I can't say enough good things about this book. I can't wait until the sequel appears on my doorstep in the next couple of weeks. I truly savored every inch of this book and can't wait to savor more!

    WOW!!!! Might as well just buy the sequel, you're going to want it!

    Wow!!! Since buying my kindle, (and feeling like I am cheating on my huge library of books)...I have only purchased a couple...and this was the biggest purchase. I was unsure, since though I love reading about ancient history, its usually revolving around my own ancestory; the Welsh, Irish & Scots. This was a completely different world..plus, not an inexpensive book..I would usually have just made the purchase as a hold in your hand, add to the book collection book, but ended up in the hospital and welp; I decided I was worth the price..even seeing there's a second book to this story and realizing fairly swiftly I'd want it. Now I KNOW I have to buy it, and dont want to wait for it to come in the mail. I wish I had just purchased this to add to my collection!! This is a fast moving, thoughtful, draw you right into the story excellent read.

    I’m so glad I read this one

    This book was on my Intriguing Debuts list this year. In fact, it’s the only one I’ve read so far from the list. Oops. I’m so glad I read this one. I haven’t read many historical fiction novels, and certainly not many set in China. So that was already exciting to me. This novel managed to captivate me, educate me on a part of Chinese history and the customs, and get me attached to all the characters.SETTINGAs I mentioned earlier, this book is set in China. This is the story of Mei, who will later be known as Empress Wu. I don’t see that as a spoiler, considering it’s both history, and mentioned on the cover of the book. It chronicles her life, which according to Wikipedia was February 17, 624 – December 16, 705. Yes, I used Wikipedia. I’m sorry, okay, I’m just really uneducated on Chinese history!This book is the first in the duology (can I just say how underappreciated duologies are?).

    What a head-scratcher, in the best possible way

    Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy has been waiting for a review for a few weeks now. I can confidently say that I’ve never read a more confusing, unresolved book than this one. What’s incredible about Auster’s work, though, is that this doesn’t condemn the book in any way. If you’re a fan of neat and easy storybook endings that are predictable from a million miles away, stay away from The New York Trilogy. If you like great writing that gives you a headache, this is the novel for you.The New York Trilogy is, like the title implies, a collection of three shorter stories originally published as three different books. While they seem to have nothing in common, the trilogy as a whole is definitely one story, or at least three facets of one story. There isn’t a sentence that could capture any of these stories, so let the back cover text intrigue you:City of Glass: As a result of a strange phone call in the middle of the night,... 4/5 A.

    MUST READ!!!!!

    5/5 Amanda Dortch - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The New York Trilogy (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) (Paperback) I wish I could give it 10 stars!This book has left me speechless and a changed woman forever. I was required to read it in school for a critical reading and writing class. I had not prior likes of this "detective" book and. Ow that has changed. Auster is a pure genius and now I am a huge fan of him.Without going into details and giving away the story if you read this (and you should) annotate/ highlight/ take notes.... find the clues that auster hides in every sentence and figure out what he's trying to say about life. This may be impossible though, I could dissect this book for years. But do it, because that is why the book is meant to be read. It's a detective triology about detectives that turns you into a detective.This is a masterpiece and the best book I have ever read!

    Metafiction, meta-mystery. Very cool read.

    Paul Auster’s novel, The New York Trilogy, is a unique blend of metafiction and mystery, with a definitive detective, noir flavor and vibe. There is a common bond within all three tales in that there is a sense of isolation experienced within the main character’s point of view as they head towards an unseen destination in their investigation/search. At points, the protagonist, in looking for someone or something, is forced to look inwardly, sometimes painfully and truthfully, at themselves.In “City of Glass”, author Quinn assumes the role of “detective” as he tries to locate and find the whereabouts of the elder Peter Stillman. Stillman allegedly wreaked severe psychological damage on his son, Peter Stillman. The case and search take on a life of its own as Quinn becomes immersed in this case to the point of breakdown and obsession. Auster captures the frustration of Quinn during his search: “…there seemed to be no substance... 5/5 fra7299 (California, United States) - See all my reviews, April 24, 2016

    Extraordinary!!

    Deen Koontz is undoubtedly my very favorite author. I spent most of today finishing this book so I could get started on the newest Odd Thomas book released just yesterday. This story about 3 people ending up at the same motel in Arizona, going in opposite directions. Dylan O'Conner and his autistic brother Shepherd heading east, and Jilly Jackson and her green Jade plant she called Fred heading west to new job life challenges. All of them were over taken by a mad scientist and injected with nanobots and the changes they caused them to go through. The scientist, a mad and evil man actually gives these 3 a special sense and way of doing things that are good, against evil. This story was a bit different from other Koontz books I have read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the different talents they came up with being infected with these nanobots and the amazing things they could do because of them. I see this as a good book for those who like to read this wonderful author and... 5/5 Marijane Mcbride (California, USA) - See all my reviews, May 29, 2013

    one of my top ten Koontz books

    I have been a fan of Dean Koontz books since some time in the mid 1980's and found myself grabbing each new read as it came out. This summer I decided to re-read some of the books to refresh my memories.By the Light of the Moon was one of those delightful and surprising books. The "surprise" was never quite figuring out the doctor's motivation and in particular why he picked Dylan and Shep initially to carry on his "life's work". As more details are revealed so is the connection. Each of the three main characters Dylan, Shep and Jillian have been injected with a secret serum and it has a different effect on each of the characters. By working as a team the three are able to develop strategies that help them to avoid being caught by the "government men" who want to get their hands on this serum. Shep is autistic and yet his "power" seems to be the most unusual and magnificent of the three, a real gift. Jilly, a total stranger to Dylan and Shep until that strange night when... 5/5 Karen B (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Well, I enjoyed it...

    5/5 Liz Smith - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: By the Light of the Moon: A Novel (Kindle Edition) I just relistened to this at work. I have to say that this is one of my favorite Koontz books. I love the relationship Dylan has with his damaged brother, Skip. Jillian drove me nuts during the beginning of this book. However, as the story continued, and she dropped her guard to become a more tolerant and nicer person, I came to like her quite a bit. Watching the characters develop and change due to the circumstances in which they found themselves was a joy. The story made me laugh, gasp, and left me feeling happy and hopeful. And to this date, I still refer to Goldfish crackers as "shapey". :) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 28, 2014
