My Reviews

 
Beautiful, Optimistic, Inspiring
If Lorna Landvik's quirky descriptions of small time life entice you, you will love this book.

The biggest “Wonder” about this book is how the author, Lesley Kagen, has been able to turn a story depicting a grisly murder mystery into what I would consider a light, and at times funny, beach read. A quirky cast of small town misfits, led by Gibby , who is NQR (not quite right) after sustaining brain damage in an auto accident , set out to solve the crime. This book is a quick and easy read that still provides interesting discussion opportunities for a book club. I would suggest it for a summer selection.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova
 
Insightful, Informative, Interesting
As fifty year old Alice Howland’s life is rudely interrupted by episodes of memory loss and disorientation, she seeks medical advice and is shocked to learn that she has Alzheimer’s disease.

Still Alice moved me to tears as I watched Alice Howland, a brilliant cognitive psychology professor at Harvard, try to hold on to her sense of self as her mind rapidly declines due to early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The book’s vivid depiction of the surreal life forced upon Alzheimer’s victims and their caregivers will definitely help promote Alzheimer’s awareness.

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

Informative, Fun, Interesting
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

This fictional account depicting life on the Island of Guernsey during Nazi occupation is insightful and touching. Written as a series of correspondence between story characters it is an easy ready that can be tucked in your bag as a beach read.
