My Reviews

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
 
Book Club Recommended
Fun, Insightful, Interesting
I recommend it to all my friends!

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
 
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
Even Jodi Picoult writes a dud.

Depressing, not at all a typical Jodi Picoult book. All about Nazis. Not at all what I want out of a novel. Very predictable as well.

The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling
 
Slow, Gloomy, Boring
Go back to Harry Potter, JK! You were good at that.

Nothing to speak of. If it weren't for her name, I doubt it would ever have been published. Unremarkable.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

I've read this three times already!

Great story written by the perspective of one who has early onset Alzheimers. Important, as this disease will touch us all. You laugh and cry. Very well written.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
 
Adventurous, Interesting, Brilliant
Not worth reading.

Poorly written, very slow.

I enjoy this author.

Well written. Sorry, but I don't remember much else as I read it quite a while ago.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Banned books to the extreme!

I've read this at least ten times since it was assigned reading in eighth grade. Imagine a future where all books are burned and each wall of a room is a TV screen. Scary how close we may be coming.

An important book

This is a short, quickly read classic. The friendship between the two main characters is very touching. Few books are written about people of lesser intellect that are so touching and memorable.

Worth reading...

... but I wouldn't buy it new. Get it used or from the library.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
 
Book Club Recommended
Interesting, Inspiring, Dramatic
Carrie's mom (Stephen King fans) was nicer than her!

Just when you think the mom can't get any worse... she does! Very sad that people like this exist. Makes you look for ways you can help children in these situations. Even on your worst day as a mom, take comfort that you are never this bad.
