My Reviews

 
Adventurous, Dramatic, Interesting
Old man recounts his experience in the Circus as a youth.

Enjoyable, perhaps a deeper meaning to the ending than I originally thought.

 
Interesting Historical Non Fiction account of Jezebel.

THis is not a fictional book, but rather a weaving of history and opinion from the Author. OK as a history read if that is what you are expecting, as opposed to fictional representation.

Midwives (Oprah's Book Club) by Chris Bohjalian
 
Interesting, Informative, Dramatic
This story recounts a series of mistakes that leads to the death of a woman in childbirth. Was the midwife responsible or not? A court trial determines her fate.

Although some of our book club enjoyed the book I found it poorly written and too long. The characters were not well developed and the conclusion was unsatisying.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Dramatic, Interesting
Cutting for Stone was a slow starter, but a strong finisher!

The Corrections: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen
 
Dark, Gloomy, Difficult
The Corrections

So bad I stopped reading it halfway through. Depressing and uncomfortable...

The Picture of Dorian Gray

A classic. What's in your attic?
