It's hard to say which of the McCullough books I like best, but this biography of Adams is in the very top rank for me. I often think of Adams' all-consuming ambition (from an early age he knew he was destined to do great things), boundless energy an ...more

The Path Between the Seas by David McCullough
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was the first of the David McCullough books I've read, a majestic story of the creation of the Panama Canal. He is a wonderful storyteller who stamps his real-life characters with the seal of veracity. This is history as we want it to be, full o ...more

Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson
Out Stealing Horses
by Per Petterson
read in August, 2012
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book confused me. The writing is memorable in its stark lyricism and its rendering of rural Norway is all the more beautiful for being understated. The narrator, Trond, is a deeply unhappy person, obsessed by the events of a fateful summer long ...more

Can You Forgive Her? by Anthony Trollope
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is the first of the Palliser novels, Trollope's series about English politicians, but it's chiefly concerned with two women, Alice Vavasor, who almost makes a horribly wrong choice of a mate (it takes most of the book before she comes to her sen ...more

Room

Rate this book

The skill with which this author gets inside the heads of her two main characters, the mother and her 5-year old son, is an astonishing achievement. The second half of the book, after their emergence into the world, doesn't--and couldn't--measure up ...more

All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is the book that will make you fall in love with Cormac McCarthy. His prose is so beautiful that at times it's heart-rending. Story takes second place to setting, but there's enough story to make you keep turning the pages and in the process dis ...more

Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope
Rate this book
Clear rating
A classic, and deservedly so. If you haven't yet discovered Trollope, or have tried and wondered why, this is the book that can make you a convert. In its long-winded, roundabout way it is one of the funniest novels you'll ever read; its portrait of ...more

Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Interpreter of Maladies
by Jhumpa Lahiri
read in January, 2002
Rate this book
Clear rating
Jhumpa Lahiri writes like an angel; every sentence is a jewel. The pain of being an immigrant, a stranger in America, comes through in every story, but each one is different and each one is moving. A rare book.

For the Relief of Unbearable Urges by Nathan Englander
Rate this book
Clear rating
Some amazing writing here. The author is very young but his knowledge of the human heart has enabled him to create some memorable characters and situations. Funny, moving and wise.
