    1. Lee Roy Sears is a Vietnam veteran on death row, he was charged with murder and also had charges for rape and kidnapping that were later dropped. Michael O’Meara takes Lee's case probono and gets his sentence changed to life in prison, which eventually leads to Lee being paroled and let out. Lee spends his last few years in prison reforming and even starts an art therapy class which he hopes to continue when he gets out. The problem is that Lee really has no where to go once he leaves prison a [...]


    2. Rosamond Smith is Joyce Carol Oates. This book is a psychological study of a family caught up in a nightmare. Michael and Gina seem to be a very well to do couple with children but the story asks "are they really happy". As with most of Joyce Carol Oates' books there is a lot of darkness and many unanswered questions, there's always much to think about after reading her books. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is not a fan of JCO.

    5. Snake Eyes by Rosamond Smith (aka Joyce Carol Oates) was a terrible book! Only sheer determination to finish it got me through the first half. Part one was very dry and tediously detailed with irrelevant information to the point that only the most stubborn reader would keep plowing through. The story improved with some action that began at about the halfway mark, but it was at times very difficult to follow the long rambling conversations without the distinction of who was talking when. QUOTES H [...]
