Entertaining and well read on the audio by several voices, but I was very done with the main character, the mother, by the time it was over. I believe we got the full inner dialogue of every seven days of hand wringing by Rachel Jenner. I was mostly ...more

My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout

Clear rating
A deceptively simple story of a woman stuck in a hospital bed and visited by her mother. Mother and daughter hadn't seen each other for years and the why of that slowly unfolds through stories and memories and a review of a life that led importantly ...more

A great guilty pleasure read. This is certainly one of the best mass market/bestseller type books I've ever read. Very much a police procedural but with interesting detectives I really cared about. I may even read another!

A beautiful graphic novel about a seminal trip to Mexico for a marriage heading towards ruin and lives metamorphosing. The illustrations are wonderful and the incredible travels of a monarch butterfly set the tone and punctuate, comment on, and rise ...more

Another grim dystopia from the wonderful Margaret Atwood. What starts as a gripping, promising dark tale--Stan and Charmaine are living in their car so the promise of a planned community offering something better is pretty close to irresistible. The ...more

I didn't get very far--maybe a third of the way through. My biggest problem with it was the "gee shucks I know I'm an adorable lout" attitude which he seemed to find charming but I got annoyed with pretty quickly. The family was somewhat entertaining ...more

Wonderful book. Beautifully written and read on the audio by the author. I was fascinated by her fascination with the hawk and drawn in by the beauty of her prose.

World Made by Hand by James Howard Kunstler
Rate this book
Clear rating
It was fascinating and disturbing to think of a future without electricity peopled by a population that remembered it. The whole back to the earth lifestyle could have had its charms, but there is dark foreboding over the entire narrative and power p ...more
World Made by Hand by James Howard Kunstler
"I read Kunstler's The Long Emergency and was affected for months, but after reading World Made by Hand, I realize that Kunstler suffers from a profound lack of imagination for that which isn't immediately in his intellectual/emotional/philosophica..." Read more of this review »
