Read this to the kids for Christmas. I'm not sure if I've ever read it before. Dickens uses wonderful language, a lot of which went right over the kids' heads, but I enjoyed it. Not sure we'll make this a yearly tradition. I think I prefer to watch i ...more

I try to read these books as slowly as I can to make the Terry Pratchett amazingness last as long as I can, but I always find myself reading nonstop until I've finished it all in one day. I thought this book was going to be all about how awesome wome ...more

The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin

I felt like I was reading a badly dubbed Chinese film. The characters didn't interact in a realistic way. Maybe it would have gotten better if I'd read farther, but I just couldn't find the time, which for me is saying something since there is always ...more

I was amazed at how much my kids enjoyed this book. I thought they wouldn't be able to relate since it's about a little girl, but they both loved it, boy and girl alike. I kept picturing the Shirley Temple movie while reading, but there's more to the ...more

I wanted to like this more than I did. I found that the plot was getting lost behind the stream of conscious narration of the main character. And perhaps this was on purpose, the focus on the character rather than the story, but I thought the story w ...more
