The Girl on the Train is an entertaining book. The five main characters in the book are well drawn. The nagging question that haunts me about the book is, "What is the meaning of the train?" The train acts as a sixth main character in the story. For ...more

Wow, this is a tough book to read. I get how this book had a profound effect on anti-war people, but that's not really why I liked it so much. Buffy St. Marie's song "The Universal Soldier" and Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" deliver the anti-war ...more

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
"Completely unsatisfying. The storyline was mere sensationalism and flat morbidity in places; and in other places completely trivial and melodramatic. Made me think that the extent of the author's comment on the horrors of the holocaust would be, "..." Read more of this review »

“The belief-transmission network of which we are a part cannot operate without a continuously replenished supply of people to do the transmitting, thus the belief that children are a source of happiness becomes a part of our cultural wisdom simply because the opposite belief unravels the fabric of any society that holds it.”
