My Reviews

Loving Frank: A Novel by Nancy Horan
 
Informative, Interesting, Dramatic
Story of ilicit love affair during the early 1990's

I found this to be an enjoyable read with a surprising eye-opening ending! The book allowed discussion in various areas: women's issues, infidelity, motherhood, creative process, history of architecture, biographical study of Frank Lloyd Wright, etc. Loved this book! We had a very thought-provoking session at yesterday's meeting.

 
Insightful, Informative, Interesting
Father's sad journey with son's addisction

It was very repetitive and boring to read once you got past the initial understanding of the subject matter. Was informative, but I wonder how much material was fiction.

What On Earth Have I Done?

We weren't sure about an "essay"-type book, but thoroughly enjoyed sharing our favorite ones with each other and talking about our own life experiences once inspired by the reading.

On Hitler's Mountain

Very boring and not really detailing accounts of actual happenings (concentration camps, etc.)

The subject matter had such promise, but was very disappointed in the poorly-written end result.

Perfect Peace

Started off okay, but as book progressed, author seemed to include any/every possible societal stigma resulting in a confusing and far-fetched story.
