    The Memory of Love- Aminatta Forna. It's about Sierra Leone and the post civil war era, with a backstory that takes place in the early 70's during the attempted coup.

    It's very good.

    "the school" by ed kelleher and harriett vidal. they should make this book into a movie.

    http://www.amazon.com/School-Ed-Kelleher/dp/084393204X

    This review is from: The School (Paperback)
    The School is a novel published during the "heyday" of horror novels from the mid 80s - mid 90s. At the time, many publishers were publishing one or two horror novels a month. Some were excellent, some were simply awful, and many were just average. This one is one of those average titles.

    The story centers around an all-girl boarding school which has a mysterious past. Fifty years earlier, a student disturbingly killed the headmaster and two students in a gruesome fashion. This event set the stage for the school in its modern day. A girl is sent to the school after her parents divorce. Not long after arriving, she sees visions of things that happened fifty years ago. Eventually she ties the past events with the present. While slow in parts, there are some eerie scenes which will please horror fans. The authors, Ed Kelleher and Harriette Vidal, penned a number of horror novels published under the Leisure line. This one is indicative of their works -- nothing outstanding, but still an average story.

    Another surprisingly good one I read recently was Marilyn Monroe's autobiography "My Story." It's good but also kind of short since she only wrote up until she went on her honeymoon with Joe Dimaggio...I guess she had better things to do then write during that time

    No problem! I really enjoyed hearing about her life in Marilyn's own words.

    Off Topic: I've been on a celebrity book kick this summer and I'm a few chapters into Eric Clapton's autobiography and it's excellent so far.

    hated this book. I love Steven Tyler, but ugh, this book really sucked. It was poorly written throughout most of it, or overwritten in some spots.

    I just finished Compulsion by Meyer Levin. It was a novelized version of Leopold and Loeb written in the 50's. I was impressed, it was pretty direct in it's take on abnormal psychology and sexuality for the time.

    I'm reading "Never Knowing" by Chevy Stevens. I loved her debut novel "Still Missing".

    Cutting For Stone- Abraham Verghese. Ethiopia, war, love, family. It's very good at the halfway point.
