Title
The Ghost Mountain Boys
Author
James Campbell
Review
I just finished listening to this book and found it fascinating. If you like to read about how people overcome adversity this is the book for you. This book is about a division of National Guard soldiers who with little training in jungle warfare or equipment had to cross the Owen Stanley mountains and then attach the Japanese. The area they battle took place was the swamps and jungle of New Guinea. They had to do this in many cases with only rifles, automatic weapons and grenades.
This book also paints MacArthur in a not very favorable light. It contrasts this battle with the battle of Guadalcanal.
Mr. Campbell grasp your attention from the beginning and never lets go of it. He interweaves the battle narrative with background information on many of the participates, both American and Japanese.
I would recommend this book to Adults and Teens.  Reserve a copy!

The Boy Detective Fails
Author
Joe Meno
Review
A feel good book; in that the events within will make you feel good about your own life.
It follows the story of a man who used to solve crimes with his sister, until she committed suicide.
After leaving a mental institute, he attempts to rekindle his detective skill by investigating the death of his sister.
A great book to delve into the world of someone who's lost sight of the meaning to their life; and filled with wonderfully dry humor.  Reserve a copy!
