What is a bookray and how does it work?

A bookray means that a book passes from person to person based on the list of members involved. Preferably a bookray book is never released into the wild.

To join this bookray please private message me. I'd be happy to add you to the list!

When you receive the book from the person before you on the list please make a journal entry stating that you've received it. Then read it as soon as you can (no absolute hurry, but be reasonable please!), and journal again with your thoughts. You'll then need to private message the person on the list after you for their address. Mail the book, and if you want, make release notes on the book. Then you can just sit back and watch how the book continues on its journey!

Journal Entry 5 by bilbi from Chambéry, Rhône-Alpes France on Friday, December 26, 2003
I really enjoyed this story. I've thought i wouldn't like the Cold War background but it was so thrilling a book.
Especially I like the way the story is told to the reader : two investigators, an American and a Russian that don't know each other but that will eventually become partners to dig out that unbelievable plot.
Thank you for organizing this bookray.

Hooray, hoorah - exciting new book to read!
Will post review as soon as possible.

Journal Entry 7 by Mytilus from Plymouth, Devon United Kingdom on Friday, January 16, 2004
Oh dear. What a disapointment. I normally LOVE this kind of book, being an avid Robert Ludlum fan, but this book left me in the cold. I read it over the course of a few days absolutely WILLING myself to enjoy this book more, but it was only with a certain steely grim determination that I finished this book.

I'm not certain what elements put me off, perhaps its utter predictability, and slightly odd dialogue in parts.

Nevertheless, thank you jennysbkpqs for including me in your bookring. I'm sorry that I cannot write a more positive report; I'm sure it is just me being picky!

An interesting premise, but the pace was surprisingly sluggish in spots. Relationships were poorly handled, I never felt they were natural or believable. I've read worse, but I've certainly read better.

Oh well, thanks for sharing jennysbkpgs! This will be off to vicki9170 on my next mail day.
