My Reviews

Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
Informative, Slow, Dramatic

Well written! A little slow starting off. Well researched. Good character development. The end seemed to come quickly, I wish that there was less detail in the beginning to leave more room to develop the story.

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover
Interesting, Inspiring, Dramatic

I really enjoyed this memoir, though I feel there is more to this story. I do wonder if, years from now when certain people are no longer living, if the author will publish a second memoir to fill in the blanks. While at times I did question the accuracy of what was written, I never felt that this was malicious; rather the usual effect of time and the usual biases of human mind. Similarly, I suspect that what has been omitted has been omitted strategically, rather than simply forgotten.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
Informative, Interesting, Fun

While I found this book to be witty and I certainly appreciated the authors’ uncanny ability to evoke the period, miming its manners and mannerisms - did find it tiresome at times. I learned so much about the occupation of the Channel Islands while reading this book - something I had only moderate knowledge of previously. This novel did force me to ponder the question or what was better, to live in a war zone or to live under occupation and I appreciate the opportunity to think about my deeper philosophical intuitions. In the end I decided that I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

Informative, Interesting, Insightful

Descriptive and beautifully written, this is a story of overcoming obstacles. This book was, for me, a history lesson full of insight, moving characters, intimacy and resilience.
