    Wench By Dolen Perkins-valdez

    I gave this book a rating of 2 out of 5 stars because I am still waiting for a conclusion to this book. I kept reading hoping that the more I read the better it would get but that didn't happen. Some of the stories of the characters fell to the side or didn't develop fully, even...

    The Story Of Beautiful Girl By Rachel Simon

    I read this over the weekend and found it to be simply put a "nice" story. I don't want to use that term to down-play the book but it indeed was one of those books you read that when you were done you said aww what a sweet story. This is not a story of interracial relationships...

    A disorder Peculiar to the Country.

    By Ken Kalfus This is about a couple who are divorcing in NY near the dates of the September 11 terrorist attacks. I think the author has very good insight the inner life of people and has some very good funny situations. It is a complex tale but light hearted at the same...

    Highly Recommend George Saunders.

    I recommend George Saunders Civil War land In Bad Decline or "Pastoralia" Which has some other short stories. A rendition of all that is wrong with America in a dystopian future. People try to cope and stay civilized in a world that has become anything but. Many people are...

    Seed By Ania Ahlborn

    Where do I begin? I was gifted this book and the first few chapters seemed really interesting. However, after an accident and the main characters daughter Charlie started becoming "sick" the book for me rapidly went down hill. I felt a sense of anger towards Jack, Charlies father...

    Choke By Chuck Palahniuk

    It is a typical Chuck book...dark humor, tongue in cheek subject, same narrative tone. If you are looking for something that strays off his normal writing formula then this is not the book. However, if you just want to read another one of his books that in a round about way...

    Room By Emma Donoghue

    I thought this book was great. I checked it out yesterday and finished it last night. The story is rather truthfully chilling. A young woman who is abducted, forced into captivity, giving birth to a child by her captor but yet still tries to keep her faith, love her child and...
