GONE by Michael Grant

BOOK REVIEW

GRANT by Ron Chernow
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Oct. 10, 2017

"At nearly 1,000 pages, Chernow delivers a deeply researched, everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know biography, but few readers will regret the experience. For those seeking a shorter treatment, turn to Josiah Bunting's Ulysses S. Grant (2004)."
A massive biography of the Civil War general and president, who "was the single most important figure behind Reconstruction." Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

GRANT by Max Byrd
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 8, 2000

"Trist's detachment is both blessing and curse here: he's sympathetic, but he also simply passes through the tumult of his years in America—and through what is otherwise an impressively complex work of historical fiction."
Byrd (Jackson, 1997; Jefferson, 1993; etc.) continues his vigorously eclectic presidential series with an intricate view of politics, passion, and scandal after the Ulysses S. Grant presidency, though this story falls short of the high mark set by its predecessor. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

GONE by Mo Hayder
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 1, 2011

"First-rate mystery that takes full advantage of the wintry, moonlit West Country and the unusual skills of its lady diver."
A carjacker in a clown's mask drives off with an 11-year-old girl in the back seat, drawing DI Jack Caffery of Bristol's major-crime unit into a multilayered plot that also brings back unsteady female police diver Flea Marley. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

GONE by Lisa McMann
BEDTIME BOOK
Released: Feb. 9, 2010

"A fitting completion to this popular series. (Paranormal. YA)"
McMann continues her conversational-style narration, but her usual quick pacing turns slower as she wraps up the trilogy that began with Wake (2008) and Fade (2009). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

GONE by Martin Roper
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 6, 2002

"Sometimes ponderous, more often unsettling, Roper's literate narrative transforms the universal quest for love and wisdom into a singular tale of anguish."
In his promising first, Irish writer Roper, at home in the land of Joyce and Beckett, follows a broken protagonist as he lurches from Dublin to Manhattan and back again, searching to know himself and to connect with his world, efforts thwarted by his own deep anger and ennui. Read full book review >
