From the age of 10, Alistair Brownlee has been obsessed with being the very best, and not just improving his sporting performance across his three specialist triathlon disciplines of swimming, cycling and running, but also understanding how a winner becomes a dominant champion. Winning gold in consecutive Olympic Games has only strengthened this need and desire.
Over the last 4 years, Alistair has been on a journey to learn from the best, talking to elite figures across multiple sports – including Chris Froome, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Alastair Cook, Paula Radcliffe, Ian Poulter, Shane Williams, Ian Botham, Mark Webber and AP McCoy – as well as leading thinkers and scientists, to understand what enabled these remarkable individuals to rise to the very top and to push the limits of human capability in their relentless pursuit of perfection.
The novel centres on five characters told from their point of view. I am a geek that prefers to focus on technology or science, so this human-centred narrative was a turn-off at first. Further in I became more engrossed with the book and saw the reliance on characters as an efficient means to convey the military-geopolitical dynamics.
I certainly prefer dry, unsentimental military strategy such as in my science fiction military theory short story "Treason Alaska: The Story of the Treason Trade Route", which in spite of its title is more about Chinese-American antagonism and a surprising outcome. Still, I endorse this sentiment drenched 2034 for its few very important statements Americans need to see.
There are pro-Russian statements, and pro-Chinese statements, and are very counter to the a priori moral assumptions we see in US journalism and State Department policy rhetoric.
This bestselling author writes characters that make you feel as if you literally stepped into the pages of her book. I mean, she has got these people down. From the way, they assess people, obsess, reminisce, flaunt their insecurities, even their visits to the dermatologist. You can’t help but visualize them, feel like you can hear their inner dialogue and that’s what makes her writing so much fun!
This extraordinary novel is the fruit of a seed planted when the novelist Colum McCann met the real Bassam and Rami on a trip with the non-profit organization Narrative 4.
McCann was moved by their willingness to share their stories with the world, by their hope that if they could see themselves in one another, perhaps others could too. With their blessing, and unprecedented access to their families, lives, and personal recollections, McCann began to craft Apeirogon, which uses their real-life stories to begin another one that crosses centuries and continents, stitching together time, art, history, nature, and politics in a tale both heartbreaking and hopeful.
The result is an ambitious novel, crafted out of a universe of fictional and non-fictional material, with these fathers’ moving story at its heart.

Sold on a Monday: A Novel Paperback” written by Kristina McMorris is a remarkable historical novel. In this novel, she was inspired by actual newspaper photographs. She began to write it in the waiting room of a hospital. We find magnetic word choice for this novel. She starts it with a prologue and introduces Ellis Reed, a reporter. Here we see Ellis Reed’s attention was taken by two young boys who were sitting in front of the farmhouse. At that time he took two of the photos for his subject. They are about to sell there. A banner like “2 children for sale” was given in front of them. But the innocence of their innocent face was attracted by Ellis.

The Victory Garden: A Novel Kindle Edition” As the Great War continues to take its toll, headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce is determined to contribute to the war effort. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage. This book is heavy on romance and drama, light on historical issues. Don’t expect to learn anything about England during WWI. In fact, anyone expecting historical fiction, steer clear. I found the story formulaic, but I did enjoy Emily and the other characters. This is a sweet novel and it is enjoyable as long as you aren’t looking for anything deep.
Theory: This novel turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable read, far exceeding my initial expectations. It’s a very feminist story about the contributions of women at home in England during the WWI years. I’ve heard it said before that WWI fractured the class distinctions historically prevalent throughout England, and while I’m sure it didn’t eradicate them entirely, I can see how the war enabled the breaking down of these barriers. WWI had such a devastating effect on the population of men, both during and after the war, and women were required to keep the home front ticking over.
In Cold Blood Paperback” a nonfiction novel. This book was written by an American author Truman Capote.

Initially, the police are baffled. Bobby Rupp is a suspect until he passes a lie detector test. Alvin Dewey, the KBI agent in charge of the investigation, thinks that the killer must be someone close to the family. Rumor sets the small town of Holcomb on fire. Hartman's Cafe is the center of numerous theories.
Genre: Through his hard work, Herb appears (to us and to those around him) to have achieved the American Dream; he is a successful businessman, he has a wife and children, and he’s well-liked among his peers. He’s also a staunch Methodist, and Herb seems to connect his religious faith with his worldly success. Here one can know about the murder story based novel. You can find some dramatic manners here.
Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor” The beginning. It’ll come as no surprise that Moffat has abandoned traditional storytelling techniques to play silly beggars with chronological structure. But it works and it works well. Whilst watching the 50th-anniversary episode at the cinema, on the telly, and on Netflix, I’ve never thought too hard about the name of the episode. The thing is though, a lot of it is quite clever. It just slows things down when the author stops to point out how clever he’s been. Having said that, I’m looking forward to rewatching The Day of the Doctor again quite soon to see how much I’ve been missing. If you enjoyed The Day of the Doctor and don’t want to see Steven Moffat burned at the stake, then there’s a very high chance you’ll enjoy reading this written version.

Big Lies in a Small Town: A Novel Kindle Edition” is the novel on a woman. This was a mystery novel for the readers. Morgan Christopher's life has been derailed. Taking the fall for a crime she did not commit, she finds herself serving a three-year stint in the North Carolina Women's Correctional Center. She doesn’t know much about restoration, but she knows she wants out of prison and so she takes on the assignment. Edenton is full of secrets — and her restoration project might be the key to uncovering them. Who was the original muralist, Anna Dale? And what happened to her? One of my favorite things about this novel is Chamberlain’s use of the dual timeline. In one timeline, we follow Anna from the time she takes the job to paint the mural and moves to North Carolina to complete her task, all the way through to what caused her to insert those violent images into her art. At the same time, we follow Morgan as she both restores the mural and tries to find out whatever she can about what happened to Anna. I loved how the two timelines parallel one another, revealing secret after secret and lie after lie until they ultimately merge in the most heart-wrenching way.
North Carolina, 1940: Anna Dale, an artist from New Jersey, wins a national contest to paint a mural for the post office in Edenton, North Carolina. Alone in the world and desperate for work, she accepts. But what she doesn't expect is to find herself immersed in a town where prejudices run deep, where people are hiding secrets behind closed doors, and where the price of being different might just end in murder. What happened to Anna Dale? Are the clues hidden in the decrepit mural? Can Morgan overcome her own demons to discover what exists beneath the layers of lies?
“American Dirt” is a book that will change thinking. If you can read this story and not be moved, not be changed - I seriously wonder if you’re alive; it’s that affecting. The author has some skin in this game thru her grandmother’s immigration experiences. She’s done exhaustive research and produced a remarkable volume. The story is raw, violent, emotional and full of passion. The characters live and breathe from the very first moment they appear on the page. The reader will step inside the story and it will be near impossible to put the book down. The action is relentless and every moment of the 50+ days travelled by the family is felt by the reader - the hunger, thirst, fear, danger, sweat, blisters, cold, anticipation, sorrow.

Nina Dean is not especially bothered that she's single. She owns her own apartment, she's about to publish her second book, she has a great relationship with her ex-boyfriend, and enough friends to keep her social calendar full and her hangovers plentiful. And when she downloads a dating app, she does the seemingly impossible: She meets a great guy on her first date. Max is handsome and built like a lumberjack; he has floppy blond hair and a stable job. But more surprising than anything else, Nina and Max have chemistry.
Their conversations are witty and ironic, they both hate sports, they dance together like fools, they happily dig deep into the nuances of crappy music, and they create an entire universe of private jokes and chemical bliss. But when Max ghosts her, Nina is forced to deal with everything she's been trying so hard to ignore: her father's Alzheimer's is getting worse, and so is her mother's denial of it; her editor hates her new book idea, and her best friend from childhood is icing her out. Funny, tender, and eminently, movingly relatable, Ghost is a whip-smart tale of relationships and modern life.
