My Reviews

 
Inspiring, Insightful, Brilliant
Not my favorite book.

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
 
Slow, Boring, Gloomy
The story of a group of young people who travel to Spain in post WWI era.

Moments of beautiful descriptive clarity among a group of constantly drunk friends exploring their relationships while witnessing the fiesta and bullfights in Spain.

 
One building, many stories as Vishnu lays dying.

Each character in the novel has a different story and each is developed to different levels. Some stories more interesting than others.

 
Slow, Gloomy
Lily struggles to find her place in a vacuous society

Edith Wharton's novel of Lily Bart's life among and around the fantastically pretentious and wealthy society which she longs to be a part of but not enough to compromise her moral character.

Wharton's prose is highly descriptive yet concise and brings the characters and their surroundings to vibrant life. Introspective and timeless.

 
Dramatic, Insightful, Inspiring
Navy SEAL tells about training and actual battle in Afghanistan

This book is written by a Navy SEAL. The first part of the book describes the training required to become a Navy SEAL. The second part of the book is about Operation Redwing. It was humbling to read about the battle and the tenacity of the SEALs. It was enlightening and once Operation Redwing begins, riveting. After reading this book, I want to thank the men and women of the armed forces who serve and protect our country every day!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The Book Thief

Another story about Nazi Germany but told from a different point of view. The author's characterization of Death as the narrator provided an interesting theme throughout the book. His personification of Death along with Death's sometimes lyrical prose added greatly to the story. I would have liked to hear more from Death's point of view during this tumultuous and deadly era in history.
