The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog by Bruce D. Perry
Rate this book

Incredibly engrossing, well-written and a quick read. The case-studies are fascinating - the children taken out of WACO especially - but also the interplay of physiology and psychology as an explanation for destructive behaviors, such as cutting,

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
Rate this book
Clear rating
Billed as a (more or less, I'm guessing less) true story, there are parts that I epically loved and even underlined - but overall about 300 pages too long. Some beautiful insights, imagery and turns-of-phrase downgraded by narcissistic tendencies and ...more

Read it a long time ago, when I was young and indoctrinated. Highlights include the father who sends his daughter outside to be raped to death by an angry mob instead of sending out the angel staying at his house, and a schizophrenic god who goes all ...more

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

Started out engaging, but by the end so Utterly Disappointing and Completely Lame. What a gyp. And why are so many modern protagonists young autistic boys? (Done WAY better in the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime btw.)

Before reading this informative book, I was under the impression that I ate as healthy as any human could (save for people who grow and raise their own food.) Don't eat fast or processed foods, too many sweets, or anything with an everlasting shelf-l ...more

The Death of Bunny Munro by Nick Cave

What started out promising, ultimately felt so entirely fake. The kid speaks and acts like no 9-year-old I've ever met, the main character was dim and unlikable, although that may be the point, if there was one ... it was as if Nick had a wisp of an ...more

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
The Kite Runner
by Khaled Hosseini (Goodreads Author)

Contrived and ham-fisted, obvious and manipulative, but interesting from a historical perspective (1970's Kabul before the Soviets, Taliban, etc.) - one of those cloying-but-addictively-so reads.
