What a huge, boring disappointment this book was! I generally love Amy Tan's books--The Joy Luck Club is still one of my all-time faves by a contemporary author--but man, this book stank. Long, ridiculously descriptive names for sex acts that read li ...more

Pretty good. I actually listened to the audio as my motivator to run, and this book lasted me the whole summer.

This is one of King's better "new" offerings--he kind of lost his way there for a while (*cough* Lisey's Story *cough), but this was more

I have been an avid fan of the Dark Tower series for ages. I actually wept at the end of Wizard and Glass because I was so in love with the characters, and at that time Stephen King was taking about five years to write the sequels, so I knew it would ...more

I discovered this little gem when preparing for a workshop I was giving on writing with an audience in mind. What a treasure this woman is! I laughed all the way through the book and wondered if I wrote Molly Griffis (a fellow Oklahoman), would she w ...more

This collection of short stories was a joy to read. I especially liked that so many stories dealt with aging characters--a slice of life we don't often get to see in fiction. What continually struck me when reading these stories is how even though th ...more
