My Reviews

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
 
Romantic, Interesting, Beautiful
It was just okay...

I had high hopes for this novel, and indeed it was impressively written considering this was Niffennegger's first work. I found myself having a difficult time finding a reason to truly relate to the characters. Although the conept was dynamic, I fel that the heroine's character was somewhat flat. Perhaps that was the intention - her life revolved around a man who was present one moment and gone the next.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as a book club pick, but would recommend it for someone who is interested in reading something that challenges your concept of time. Here's the best piece of advice on how to manage this book, which I read from a reader here on Book Movement...don't focus on where Henry and Clare are in time, but rather focus on being with them in the moment. Otherwise, the dates may become overwhelming and you'll be removed from their story.

Wench: A Novel by Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Insightful, Dramatic, Informative
Quite a gem...

I felt this book caused you to experience the lives of women during the slave years - both black and white womens' lives. This story was tragic, hopeful, and reality all roled into one fictional gem that I will keep in my collection to re-read again.
