review 1: A must read for conspiracy buffs but a mishmash of opposing views presented in endless dialogues between people who would not engage in philosophical debate when survival was allegedly on the line for the rest of us. It started with promise when 12 year-old Jamie senses Evil and turns to a teacher for help. Jamie gets lost in the Catholic church conspiracy and none of the other characters are fleshed out enough to care about.
review 2: After reading the Prologue of The Canary List I found myself disinterested. This was a book I was throughly looking forward to, however, it did not seem as awesome as I thought it would be.

... moreter 13 I kept wondering.. how many more plots will be added to this story? And why isn't it annoying me instead of drawing me in? The answer is simple. This was a very well written book. The story is told by a man who is just trying to make it through every day life as a teacher, father, neighbor, and (regrettably) an ex-husband, when one of his students throws his world upside down. Jaimie, a 12-year old orphan, trusts no one besides her therapist and possibly Mr. G, her teacher. When she feels like something Evil is coming after her and she can not get a hold of her Doctor, the only person she can think to run to is Mr. G. She is sure he will save her. Instead he ends up in jail. This nail biting mystery has so many characters that just when you think you are going to get lost in the story Brouwer starts bringing them together one by one. At the very end you are thrown for a loop. Will you believe him? This Mystery-Adventure-Scientific Fiction book is not one you will want to pass on. less

This was an interesting story although it got a little complicated towards the end.
A can't-put-it-down suspense that is timely due to the recent selection of a pope.
Mm... Just good- not great.
