My Reviews

 
Adventurous, Beautiful, Insightful

A simply written easy read of a man’s final journey related by his best friend! Beautifully written with wonderful descriptions of Japanese life.

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
 
Informative, Insightful, Brilliant

Not a huge fan of short stories - the collection as a whole was interesting. Would have preferred to see each character developed more but then the book would be huge! Perhaps the point is to be inspired to learn more? The feeling of not belonging drifts throughout the generations.

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
 
Insightful, Interesting, Brilliant

Loved how this book questions what is isn’t normal. The more Keiko conforms the less she conforms to society and what a woman is expected to do. Shiraha is similar but he has a negative attitude vs Keikos positivity. Love story ? Why do we love her and find him creepy?

Clock Dance: A novel by Anne Tyler
 
Slow, Boring, Unconvincing

A little disjointed. Didn’t hold my interest until the last section where Willa feels the need to fill the gap as “grandma”

A harsh tale about a harsh life

Always interesting to read novels based on history and learn about the past. The pack horse librarian life was harsh enough in the midst of the Great Depression, but this story adds another layer following the life of a young lady with Methemoglobinemia and the troubles she endured as a result of her colour. Despite all odds she brings compassion and knowledge to her book clients.

Well written you often feel like you're alone in the mountains/forests with her.

The end felt very rushed.

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel by Mary Beth Keane
 
Insightful, Slow, Interesting

Sometimes confusing- had to reread certain passages to understand what was written.



Kept expecting the worst to happen.



Felt the author was trying to write about serious subjects but lacked the real knowledge or experience to truly describe the pain and suffering of mental health or addiction issues.
