My Reviews

The Ten-Year Nap by Meg Wolitzer
 
Unconvincing, Slow, Poorly Written
No one liked it. Only 2 people even finished it.

My book club is a group of stay at home moms and yet none of us could relate to these characters. I don't see how it was a "Ten Year Nap" exactly and I certainly can't see what all these women awakened to after this 10 year period.

 
Inspiring, Informative, Insightful
An inspiring true story

I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It's amazing what Greg Mortenson has accomplished. Reading about his work and the people he has met along the way is eye-opening and inspiring.

Epic, Dramatic, Adventurous
Good but long

As long as the book is it never got boring but sometimes I skimmed over some of the details of cathedral building.

Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
 
Book Club Recommended
Adventurous, Interesting, Inspiring
A good supplement to The Glass Castle

This was an interesting story that moved quickly but should definitely be read with The Glass Castle.

Blame: A Novel by Michelle Huneven
 
Book Club Recommended
Unconvincing, Insightful, Informative
Quick read that makes you think - good for discussion.

Makes you think - some parts are believable, some parts you'll question. Choices of main character brought up emotional responses at our meeting.

Dying Inside by Robert Silverberg
 
Interesting, Unconvincing, Dark
Interesting premise handled in an ugly way.

Considered a classic, the main character has the ability (or curse) of being able to read minds. It's a thought provoking book but the main character who is suffering a midlife crisis as he begins to lose his ability is utterly unlikable and inspires no sympathy. Hard to get through.
