In the Garden of Beasts

Took a long time to get into it - read rather like a text book. Some interesting characters, though, especially Martha, the ambassador's daughter.
Enjoyable to those who like history, and WWII information.

Breakfast with Buddha

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! It is interesting to see the change that comes over Otto as he travels with Rimpoche to North Dakota, introducing him to the United States. Very humorous at times!

The Secret Garden

A young girl is sent from India to live with her uncle in England after her parents died. She discovers a new world in which to grow, and helps her sickly cousin gain health. How she goes from a self-absorbed little girl to a cheerful, outgoing one makes a wonderful story.

The Girl on the Train

It was written with many twists and turns. There were places I was telling the character, "No, don't do that!" It was a book hard to put down! I wanted to know who the murderer was.

The Boys in the Boat

A group of 10 people read, then discussed the book. Rating from 1-5, 5 being high, the group came up with a 4.5. Although one knows they win the 36 Olympic Gold, the getting there is a terrific story, giving insight into the lives of people in the early 30's.

The Two Family House

I enjoyed the book very much. The characters each had differing personalities. It was exciting watching Natalie pull Mort out of his shell. He had been so reluctant to talk with people. Our book group all enjoyed the book and had a lively discussion about the characters and their choices.
