The Namesake: A Novel by Jhumpa Lahiri

The Namesake

Have been born white middle class this gave me a different perspective on what it is to want and obtain the American dream from an immigrant point of view. This book showed the struggles of a child/teen that straddled two worlds, his parents tradiational background and that of an modern American culture.

The Haunting of Hill House

Quick read. This is a ghost story that sucks you in so that you don't know where reality ends and the story begins. This book left me with a lot of questions to ponder, I enjoyed it.

I liked this book. I found it an interesting topic, I was not aware how pervasive it was for slave owners to openly engage in relations with their female slaves. The book does a good job at showing the variations of the relationships of the same sort, some abusive, some wrapped in the manipulation of something akin to love. The characters are convincing and the story compelling.
