The Time Traveler's Wife

This book is hard to follow and a bit melodramatic. With so many choices, I recommend passing on this one.

The Road of Lost Innocence

While this book is difficult because of the subject matter, it is an important work. Hopefully, as more and more people become aware of the sex-slavery torture inflicted on children, the world will become less tolerant & more vigilant against abusers.

If you are an animal lover (or not), makes you think.

The Glass Castle

This book took me through a wide range of emotions. In the beginning, the carefree, defiant spirit of Jeannette's parents' was intriguing. Who hasn't dreamed of 'doing the skedaddle'? Later in the story, anger starts to build; the children are more and more neglected, even abused, as their parents slip further into alcoholism and depression. In the end, triumph; and finally sorrow, for lives so inextricably shaped by both genius and mania.

Under the Dome: A Novel by Stephen King

Under the Dome: a Novel

King does a good job developing characters, and starts off with an interesting premise. However, the book tails off from there. Gratuitous violence; long, overdrawn plot; grab bag of social problems; finally fizzling out to a silly ending.
