I finished OPRAH by kitty kelly.

You know i still think she has done so much for so many people, then i read this book.... :huh:
This book makes her out like some kind of lesbian, prostitute, selfish, self absorbed, money hungry, power loving, obama Svengali, cold, drug addicted, sour puss of a woman.

I was reading reviews on that book and what I read is that it was poorly written and wasn't very factual. Any truth to that?

It's not bad, I've read a bunch that are worse and as far as factual, from what I've read in other publications about the different killers, it seems to follow pretty close to those. But there is a lot of them (killers) that I have never heard of so whether it's factual on those I have no idea. There are some chapters on dictators, kings and the like that is kinda boring, I just skipped over those parts. Those types seem to be more in line with a mass murderer than a serial killer which is what I want to learn about so I'll have something to do when I retire. :D

I don't know but the BTK Killer is one of the most intriguing stories to me.

Just finished the first book? I have two of the series you can borrow. I'd have to look and see which two. I know it's not the first one.

The Prince of Frogtown- I love this book! And highly recommend it! Its a story about growing up in a rough Alabama mill family and focuses on the authors father through memories and stories from friends and family. "A man bound to bring harm even to those he truly loves". Thrown in, is the author story when he marries a woman with a son from a previous marriage that is sheltered and loved in a totally different manner than he was and how it affects his role as a father. It's an emotional rollercoaster that's worth the ride! Lots of history.


Sarah Palin Going Rogue - Ive always been on the fence about Sarah Palin so I thought I'd read this book and get a better idea of who she was personally and politically. I found out I'm really not all that interested in who she is personally :) The first half of the book is written like your having a long lunch with her, or anyone really, sitting in the kitchen talking about old days and family. That would be great but wasn't what I was looking for. I almost didn't make it thru but halfway into it things were more interesting and defined. It went into detail about the decisions she made and the decisions that were made for her. She explains her side to some of the rumors and mudslinging done by reporters, politicians, and others. Overall you get to know who she is as a person and a politician and what (or who) motivates her decisions. It's not Ann Coulter style dem bashing so I recommend it to both sides.
