Just Like Us

Reveals the complexities of illegal immigrants in the US. Helen Thorpe did a great job explaining the struggles and challenges of illegals in this country, especially the children who are raised in the US without papers. The US cannot afford to give them all amnestiy, but also cannot afford to close the borders because so many industries rely on their labor.

Enjoyable but anticlimatic

An Object of Beauty

The book was interesting in that it provided insight into the art world and the New York beat. However, I thought it was anticlimatic and seemed to drag in places. A couple of spots seemed to be building up to something big but then went flat.

Island Beneath the Sea

A compelling novel about the slave trade extending beyond this country's borders. Allende paints a vivid picture of the suffering endured by slaves and the complex social hierarchy that resulted with the inbreeding of slave owners and slaves.
