Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Rate this book

Beautiful, beautiful writing. Very personal and genuine. It’s one of those books where you feel the story, rather than reading it. It’s a book that appreciates the difficult times in life but reminds you that there is beauty in it. A lot of books foc...more

America's Game by Michael MacCambridge

Clear rating
America’s Game. The title alone makes me want to watch football. But, not just any football. NFL football. Outstanding history of the NFL until the early 2000’s. It covers a lot of material and is really a well written book. It chronicles the rise of...more

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

I didn’t finish this book. I read about 50 pages and stopped. There are two things I want to say about this book. First, the writing was incredible. I mean like really, really good. Second, I felt uncomfortable reading it. It’s not that it was sexual...more

A Room with a View by E.M. Forster
Rate this book
Clear rating
I’ll admit it. I didn’t understand this book. I don’t know why it’s considered a classic. I’m not saying that it doesn’t deserve to be a classic, I just don’t understand why it is a classic. I read it more on a surface level than reading it as great...more

2.5 stars. Hosseini is a great storyteller. This book was a page turner. I liked the historical aspect of it and I liked how the story is always changing and surprising. I like how he shows day to day life and even though I'm not Iranian, there is so...more

Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
Reading Lolita in Tehran
by Azar Nafisi (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Nafisi is a passionate and self confident writer. Most of the time those attributes get in her way. The narrative is jumbled and is sometimes linear but sometimes not. Her transitions are weak and she changes subjects without connecting them.

" K is for Killing with Kindness

This little saying I just now made up (based off of the sentence V is for Vendetta, obviously) could possibly describe Oprah. It was not, however, accomplished by Kitty Kelley in this book, though it should've been be... " Read more of this review »

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

I climbed a mountain once. It was cool. I climbed a mountain twice. It was still cool. Jon Krakauer has climbed many mountains. He has even climbed Mt. Everest. He wrote about his experience. I never wrote about any of my experiences. Well, actually,...more

Cinderella Man by Jeremy Schaap

After watching the movie directed by Ron Howard I decided I needed to read the book. I actually bought the book over a year ago at D.I. Anyways, I was surprised by how closely the movie followed Braddock's story. The book flowed well, was fast paced...more

Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol
Rate this book
Clear rating
Really funny satire even though it was written over a hundred years ago. A lot of the situations are still relatable today. I loved the social commentary and the characters. I loved Gogol's views on Russian life. Although it's a pretty simple story,...more
