My Reviews

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The Help

I felt it gave a realistic view of how Black people were treated even in the sixties. Also certainly it was much worse down south. I feel it reawakened me to 'history' in a story-novelish way and woke me up again to how life was down south and for the Black people.

The story was very well written and I found some correlation between the novel and the author in a personal way, after reading the author's excerpt at the end of the book. Don't overlook that!

THE LOVE SEASON

THIS NOVEL STARTED OUT SLOW /AND SLIGHTLY BORING, BUT AS WE NEARED THE END SO MUCH BECAME CLEAR AND IT WAS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING AND VERY DISCUSSION WORTHY FOR ANY BOOK GROUP.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Catcher In The Rye

The book was sad and a slow drawn out read. However if you belong to a 'must read before you die group' as I do /and organize, it is a must read. Because this book has very worthy concepts to discuss and ponder - it will not be a waste of time.

The Corrections: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen
 
Dark, Gloomy, Difficult
The Corrections

the novel was very slow reading and very depressing, speaking of a very dysfunctional family from early on to the grown up years. Jonathan Franzen is known for writing very deep though provoking novels but if you are looking for enjoyment while you read, don't look here.
