The excerpt of this book in The New Yorker didn't really prepare me for this book. It's funny, but it's also really shocking and sad. The author doesn't pull any punches in her descriptions of herself or her parents as they grow older and die. This i...more

This book has been a valuable emotional support for me as I live and work in Ukraine. I read this book as slowly as I could, over a period of four months. I didn't want to finish it. I loved reading about Frasier's experiences hiring and working with...more

It must have really been depressing to be the Bronte sister who couldn't tell a good story. Damn. Sorry Anne, but this book sucks. I can't even stand to listen to the whole thing on audiobooks while I floss my teeth. It's that bad.

A.S. Byatt writes about Nordic mythology from the point of view of her childhood self living in the English countryside during World War II. So beautiful. You should read it.

Fun to read. Not like the movie. Better than the movie, of course. More flying monkey action.

I somehow couldn't remember the song Norwegian Wood until I listened to it after finishing this book. Also Michelle. It really opened up the book for me to listen to those songs again.

Incredible. I can't stop thinking about this book. The beginning reads like the navel gazing of a lot of rich and bored people, but there's more. A lot more. I love the discussion midway through about whether the rich treat the poor like children by...more
