This book was a bestseller for years. When I still worked in the bookstore, I remember it continuously bouncing to our top ten list. I didn't read it at the time and instead watched the movie first. However, it's been enough years since I saw the mov ...more

I saw this book in the bookstore, and the words "darkly humorous" caught my interest. I'm a fan of dark humor if it's done correctly, and it does do that with Leigh's voice. Being so dark in an unforgiving way makes this book different from most of w ...more

This is one of those books that was very popular when it first came out, and me being who I am, I had to wait for the hype to die down before I picked it up for myself. I finally did and I can see why it was so popular. Even so, the prose can get a b ...more

There are some children's books that are universal. Meaning that adults can read them and enjoy them as much as children. Unfortunately, this didn't feel like that kind of book. Another unfortunate thing about this book is how it bears an uncomfortab ...more

I've seen this author around but never read her. I finally decided to check her out with this read. I have to say I was very underwhelmed.

First of all, the writing style was a little weak. The first quarter of the book was full of exposition, and the

This is one of those classic books that I've never had the chance to read, so of course I finally sat down to check it out. And before I go into the review, I first want to point out that I am not even close to the target audience for this book. I'm ...more

I've been wanting to read this book ever since I first saw it on the shelves. I'm fascinated by the Victorian language of flowers and I was interested in seeing how this book would handle the subject. And while the book was good, I had to give it a l ...more

I decided to check this book out because I've seen it on the shelf in the bookstore and was interested, but never had the time before now. And while some of it was very interesting, I'm afraid the book ended up disappointing me.

I was in the mood for something a little creepy to read, and after reading the summary for this book I figured this was the perfect one. And while it is indeed a creepy book with a new twist on a familiar idea, I do have to agree with some other revi ...more
