Really funny book and touching as well. This is one of my new favorite authors, although I don't think he's new, I'm just discovering him. In this book, the main character discovers his wife is cheating on him with his boss, and then shortly thereaft ...more

The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was a quick read as Tom Perrotta's books always seem to be. It had some laughs and some interesting characters, but I didn't really completely buy the portrayal of the main male character, who is a born-again Christian struggling with his new id ...more

This was a great read, very interesting to learn about Patti Smith and Robert Maplethorpe's early years in NYC. I didn't even realize they were lovers in their youth, until I read the reviews of this book, and they remained good friends until his dea ...more

Methland by Nick Reding
Rate this book
Clear rating
I hadn't picked up a nonfiction book in a while and so read this one that was passed on to me. It's a depressing look at how meth has taken over the heartland as the cheap drug of choice, but it is well-written and well-documented on how it came to b ...more

This is the second book I've read by this author and they are very funny, often poignant books about modern men who maybe need to grow up a bit. The setting of this one reminded me of my hometown (and it is even set in CT) and some of the characters ...more

I love Geraldine Brooks and she has yet to disappoint. I enjoyed the story of the first Native American graduate of Harvard and I think telling the story through the eyes of a young woman friend of his was a nice approach. It took me a little while t ...more

Clear rating
I abandoned this book half way through it. Frankly, I don't know what the hype is about. I thought it was poorly written. Not just a plodding story line in the first 200 pages or so, but it seems to break the golden rule of writing, which is to show ...more

Another one of my favorite writers, this is the same woman who wrote "March," which I absolutely loved. Brooks writes fantastic historical fiction and this one jumps across many centuries as it traces the history of a Jewish prayer book that a modern ...more

East Is East by T.C. Boyle
Rate this book
Clear rating
One of my new favorite authors, I just love TC Boyle. This was a fun book, funny and filled with offbeat characters. It could have wrapped up a bit sooner, but I got the sense the author was having some fun poking fun at other writers at the "artist ...more

" I abandoned it about halfway through. It's not very good, not sure what the hype is about. In my humble opinion, poorly written (maybe it's lost in tr ...more "
