My Reviews

Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips
 
Poorly Written, Slow, Pointless
Slow in the beginning and too much profanity.

I thought the book was a little slow in the beginning, but picked up towards the middle. I had a hard time getting past all the profanity and elicit scenes. I don't believe it all was needed in the story line.

Half Broke Horses: A True Life Novel

This book explained alot about the first book Glass Houses: A Memoir. I only wish this book was written first. I found the book very interesting, funny, dramatic and poignant.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Brilliant!!

Kathryn Stockett brilliantly weaved together the lives of an upcoming journalist/writer and her secret collaboration with black maids regarding the treatment of blacks in the deep south. Her characters were well developed. I could see and hear each person as they were talking. I felt like I was right there with them.

Thought provocing

The Picture of Dorian Gray is about a beautiful young man who is talked into wishing that his beauty and youth never fade as gets older. When his wish comes true he abadones all morality since he doesn't have to deal with the visual consequences. Oscar Wilde writes a very descriptive(although wordy)and thought provaking story questioning ones beliefs of morality, compassion and self-control.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosay

The information about the Jewish roundup was very informative and riveting. I liked the way the two stories intertwined with each other. However the story was poorly written and monotonous in many places (maybe because the author is French).

Kept me engaged. I enjoyed the twist and ending.

Unpredictable

This was a refreshingly unpredictable novel. The characters were well developed and very believable. The setting descriptions were richly detailed. The writing style was interesting.
