The Boys in the Boat

While typical non-fiction dry, it was fascinating. I loved how the author tied all the characters together, built it up to a crescendo, and then followed up afterward. Tied it all together. Really well written and interesting subject (that I had seen, but knew nothing about)

The Pecan Man

Short and sweet, but it's story and subject stay with you for a long time. Very insightful of race relations in the South in the mid-late 1960's
yet in a very kind way.

A thoughtful but easy read. So many levels of relationships and how one can unknowingly affect the lives of so many others. Loved this book

The Telling Room

Fun read, great use of words and descriptions. Good reflection of cultural differences and perceptions. Made me want to explore Spain.

Timely Subject

While not the best written, it is an easy read and was very interesting and informative about life for women in the Middle East even today. I selected "scary" as a description as it again is too timely for the way the world seems to be regressing back to before the "women's lib" movement.

A Gentleman in Moscow

Loved this book. Kind of "old fashioned" writing style, but portrayed wonderfully the feeling of the era, characters and location.
