My Reviews

Stillbird by Sandra Shwayder Sanchez
 
local author, women's issues

A quick read. Hard to put down. Well developed characters.

 
This book presented a lively take on this period of time.

I felt this book was a mixed bag with the group of approximately twelve who discussed it. Of course, everyone knew the outcome when they started it. The people who had read this author before thought the subject material unexpected for her. This book did though, provide the basis for good discussion.

Informative, Interesting, Insightful
not an easy read

----but worth it. Lots of characters to remember. Lots of description of the misery endured by those early Jew, Muslims, and Christians. But it is a story that many hope to understand better.

Excellent book club book. Lots of opportunity for discussion. Very insightful on the subjects of authors, Mother daughter relationships, and Chinese American culture.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver, Camille Kingsolver, Steven L. Hopp

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Written with a pleasing sense of humor. Written with built in resources that can be used to further ones knowledge of our food sources. A family colaboration, writing the book as well as the eating locally and seasonally project. This book was a sleeper. Didn't expect it to be so good. The author and her family moved back to the family farm and raised and grew their own food and preserved it. And they did this with convincing good reason. This book should be required reading in home economics and agriculture classes.

 
Dramatic, Gloomy, Interesting
Revolutionary Road

I listened to this book on CD. Not such a great reader which of course influenced mine perception of the whole story. Mostly, I could have done without this one.

The Lacuna: A Novel (P.S.) by Barbara Kingsolver

Slow, Interesting, Informative
The LaCuna

The main character was brave and well developed. The story followed his entire life. The political characters and some of the artistic characters were actually real. A BIG book but worth the read for people who enjoy historical fiction.
