The library put out books that hadn't been checked out for over a year, but were still viable stories. I chose to try this one and loved it. An unusual story that makes one ponder ones own life a wee bit. As always, Ann Patchett is a great author.

Maybe a few too many pages...maybe a bit too much repeated information...but I still really liked the story and the intelligence of the author. She throws in some big words now and then and she used one I haven't heard for a LONG time. Scuppered. Goo ...more

I loved the setting on Ellis Island in 1911. The story also involves the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire episode at that time. Wound around this period is a story about the fall of the twin towers in 2011. The thread that keeps these two stories con ...more

Could not put the book down, can not get the story out of my head. A wonderful read. I only have one complaint, when there are many players it would be nice to have a page that lists their names and a small description, so I could reference the page ...more

A very interesting book about the wealthy twins Agnes and Margaret Smith who found the oldest writings of the Gospels in Sinai. The conditions that they worked under boggles the imagination. I admit to a soft life, but their lives were to the extreme ...more

Fascinating book about life with a hawk...or maybe hawk with a trainer! The author is very emotionally attached to her hawk. There is a sideline about another hawk enthusiast from the past and his story is interwoven with her story. Once-in-a-while I ...more

“If you're 50 years old or younger, give every book about 50 pages before you decide to commit yourself to reading it, or give it up.

If you're over 50, which is when time gets shorter, subtract your age from 100 - the result is the number of pages you should read before deciding whether or not to quit. If you're 100 or over you get to judge the book by its cover, despite the dangers in doing so.”
