Ugh. I really wanted to like this book--Terry Pratchett is (allegedly) hilarious, Tiffany was a charmingly progressive heroine--but it just never quite worked for me. I'd go to read, and then think, 'Oh, I'm reading...that. Right.'

The plot felt tired

I've read and enjoyed other books in this series before, but this one was rather hit or miss for me.

The first section, which was current hot-button issues about food, seemed to drag, especially given that it had not one but two sections either by or

A World Lit Only by Fire by William R. Manchester

The good: It was relatively engaging reading, and, despite the author's habit of drifting apparently aimlessly and plotlessly through the writing, a relatively easy read, as well. There's some interesting biographical information--the parts of the bo ...more

Rate this book

It's hard to overstate my "meh" feelings about this book. Maybe if you're living in a cave, these things are secrets, but come on--it's stuff like cultivate friendships, laugh, exercise, set realistic goals... Nothing surprising there.

Additionally,

Funny and feminist--gold star!

Sure, parts of the book went on a little too long, and occasionally there's an awkward twinge at the end of a story, like you've just heard something you weren't meant to hear, but overall, the book is really enjoyable.

I'm a knitter. I knit all the time, and, sitting here, have no fewer than three knitting projects within arm's reach of me. I'm totally this book's target audience...which is unfortunate, because I spent more time rolling my eyes than I did anything ...more

Ugh. I really, really wanted to love this. It's middle grade fantasy from the POV of the female protagonist. There are talking animals, puzzles, secret passageways, and political conspiracies. Even the idea behind the story is interesting. So what's ...more

Lamb by Christopher Moore

If I could, I'd give this 4.5 stars--it wasn't *quite* a five for me, but I enjoyed it enough that I didn't want to bump it down to a four.
