Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Last Israelis by Noah Beck

My review copy of this book was a pre-press copy.  This book is a fictionalized look at the tensions and frustrations of the current Middle East conflict. 

Mr. Beck sets the scene for the book by carefully introducing each character and providing insights to their motivation.   This sets the stage for the increasing level of tension and action as the book escalates to it’s dramatic conclusion.

I like good characterizations.   I think it is much easier to “get into” a book when you have some feel or empathy for the people who populate it.   Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t just a character study, this book has plenty of action and can provide that adrenal jolt that signifies a good action thriller.

I recommend the book.

NEW as of 5/28/2013  Noah recently published the second edition, and released it in every format (ebook, paperback, and even audiobook).    Here is the trailer for his book:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
