My Reviews

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
 
Dramatic, Interesting, Dark
clever, wonderfully crafted. THIS is why I love a good book!

This book reminded me so much of Daphne DuMaurier. A real treat to read. The perfect rainy day book.

 
good book. I learned more about WWII than I ever have, and in an interesting way. The downside of this book was that is wasn't particularly crafty in its style, but it told a great story about a brave

Good book, you learn alot, develop an appreciation for our easy lives without war, and learn about a very brave woman. Not exactly Pat Conroy in writing style, but certainly worth reading.

The Double Bind: A Novel by Chris Bohjalian
 
Interesting, Dramatic, Brilliant
clever, thoughtful story. very creative

I appreciated the author's creative plot, but I felt he took too much artistic liscense, which led to some improbability, which tainted it somewhat. As if you'd been tricked.

The book started out with a bang, it dragged on and on in the middle, then delivered a worthy ending.

Worth reading though.

 
Boring, Inspiring, Slow
she writes well, her story is interesting, though a bit self serving and whiny. Parts of it are laugh out loud funny, others smacked of trying too hard to supply a good read.

Worth reading, a gook book to take to the gym or on vacation.

Informative, Dramatic, Insightful
The Birth of Venus

Gives a great insight to how it is to be a woman in the 15th century, in Italy. I found the ending very clever and poignant.

No Ordinary Time, FDR and Eleanor, the White House Years

This makes my top 15 ever. Beautifully written, you learn things about FDR and Churchill that give great insight into the whole war. I cried when it was over. Every American should have to read this.
