The first 75 pages are confusing but then the story comes together. It is worth hanging in there for it

This is not a happy book, but when an author can do something that surprises me, I enjoy that, and this one was worth it.

This story goes on way too long. It starts and ends well but lags in the middle.

I am not a non fiction fan usually, but Erik Larson writes in a way that makes history seem like a story with characters. His writing is engaging and enjoyable.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

A very sweet story in which you are able to watch the character grow and change throughout the story. There are some sad things but a lot of very sweet moments that help you root for the character. Eleanor 's unique perspective on the world will make you smile! Well written and very enjoyable

This book held my interest but it was a little uneven at times. Overall, I enjoyed it

The Dutch House

I listened to this one on audio and Tom Hanks was the narrator. He did a great job and it may have helped me feel like I knew the characters, but the writing of the characters is strong and they are well developed, so that I wanted to get to know them.

I read some reviews that did not like this book, but I really enjoyed it. I like that you find out more about what happens after the last book and there is some resolution. The Handmaid's Tale is a more brilliant book but I found this one very satisfactory.
