This is a wonderful conclusion to the series, packed to the gills with excitement and references to earlier novels. The action, when it comes, is intense and often brutal--I could not help but feel tremendous emotions as I read along, grieving for th ...more

Autobahn by Neil LaBute
" I don't like The Shape of Things, actually. I know that puts me in the minority, but I did not enjoy it all that much. "

Having loved LaBute's Bash so much, I had high hopes for this collection of short plays. It bears much of his signature style, but the only two stand out plays (in my opinion) are the monologue in which a woman coming from rehab explains to her mothe ...more

Having performed the last play (medea redux), I have a special link with this collection. Each play has roots in the Greek Tragedies of Euripides. (**spoiler alert**) The opening play is a monologue in which a businessman confesses to the murder of h ...more

Of the three plays in this collection, I fell in love with Reckless and Stranger. Reckless is an astoundingly complicated play that makes my brain hurt every time I try to dig into it--but in that great way (you know what I mean). Each character is b ...more

I enjoyed this sequel, although not as much as the original. The story seems to lose its thread through the middle and definitely ups the stakes of insanity along the way. Overall, though, it is a winning book, often hilarious and with the same heart ...more

I LOVE THIS BOOK. Silly Bridget! It may be cliche for me to like it, being that I'm a single woman, but I don't care. Bridget is the alter-ego of many women in this world, and for good reason. Who of us hasn't polished off a box of candy out of bored ...more

This book is flat out HILARIOUS to any neurotic out there. I laughed outloud multiple times and count it among my favorite books to re-read. The movie doesn't do it justice. The main character is flawed, but interesting and very real. This is a compa ...more

I read this as a companion to the book that I read about birth mothers and adoptions (see my other reviews). It was not as emotional for me as reading about the birth mothers, and this is largely due to the fact that most of the women featured in the ...more
