My Reviews

The Good German by Joseph Kanon
 
Entertaining story line, plus sets the stage for meaningful discussions.

 
Inspiring, Insightful, Brilliant
I thought this was a terrible book. I did not relate to the author. We did have a good discussion bashing the book and trying to determine why it is so highly rated.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls

Amazing Story

Great Read.

I loved this book. The book is written as if it were a journal and I had to remind myself that it was fiction. It was very interesting and well done.

 
Interesting, Informative, Beautiful
One of my all time favorite books.

I loved reading about women of the Bible as strong, enduring individuals. Diamant creates a very interesting and believable twist on "history". This was a very enjoyable read.

Lisey's Story: A Novel by Stephen King
 
There is not enough story here to justify 650 pages.

This book was too wordy, too repetitious and too long! The story hidden behind all this was a decent story and perhaps Stephen King fans will enjoy it. If this is typical of Stephen King, I won't be reading more of his work.

A Widow for One Year by John Irving
 
Dark, Gloomy, Dramatic
Very good book with many themes for discussion.

This story covers so many themes that there is endless topics for discussion. Very cohesive; every story line ties together brilliantly without seeming contrived. This is a lengthy book and the author tends to go into too much detail with discriptions, but a very good book.

Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert
 
Interesting, Fantastic
Well written. Easy read. Made for a great book discussion.

Fun lighthearted read. Generated good discussion.

An amazing story of the women who lived during the time of footbinding in China. See did an excellent job of telling this story with authenticity.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
 
Adventurous, Interesting, Brilliant
Made for an excellent discussion.

The book starts out a little slow, but really picks up after the ship sinks. It made for great discussions.

 
Dark, Interesting, Confusing
Big Disappointment

Difficult read. Most people in our group did not finish the book and were not interested in discussing it in detail. Too many made up words, made up politics and made up nonsense. It was a stretch that didn't work to fit this into the orginal Wizard of Oz story. I was sorely disappointed. "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister" is a much better read.

 
Insightful, Inspiring, Life Changing
Young's way of sharing his religious beliefs in the form of a novel. It was not inspiring.

Well written compelling story. It was disturbing to read about the realities of life for many Afgan women.
