The King's Speech

I wouldn't say that I didn't like the book; however I found it a bit difficult to "get into". The book read more like a documentary than a story, but it was very interesting. I would have liked to know more about the actual therapy sessions that the king had with the therapist. I did like the emphasis on the friendship that blossomed from their lessons together and I liked that the therapist was so encouraging to the king as he helped him through his speach impediment.

Putting Things in Perspective

I really enjoyed this book. While it wasn't the height of excitement or adventure, the letters and stories that this book brought to light were moving. It's amazing to think that we as a nation / society can so easily complain and want for more than we need. As the book and letters describe families in the midst of the Great Depression, struggling to feed their children, watching their infants die of lack of nutrition and inability to keep them warm, you are forced to recognize all the blessings that we have in our lives. Truly eye opening and certainly puts things in perspective.

Twisted Love

The main character takes drastic measures to conceal their secret and ensure his wife's happiness. Out of guilt and feeling as if his marriage made his wife unhappy, he makes unwise decisions in an effort to right his wrongs. It's exciting and interesting to see how the secret is revealed and the story unravels. Quite a twisted, romantic story.
