Great historical mystery by an author who obviously did her research.

The World Is Bigger Now by Euna Lee
Rate this book
Clear rating
Interesting to compare with Somewhere Inside, since there are similarities and differences between their experiences. It's not as well-written as the other book but still worth reading.

Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick

Clear rating
This book is a must-read. I haven't been this affected by a book in a while. Definitely one the best non-fiction books I've read.

Love's Enduring Promise by Janette Oke
Rate this book
Clear rating
Interesting how the movie has almost nothing in common with the book. The book has very little plot or character development, and (as another reviewer said) reads like an extended epilogue to the first book.

Somewhere Inside by Laura Ling

Clear rating
I could barely put this book down once I started reading it. The only thing it lacks is Euna's perspective, and I just found out she wrote a book as well. I'll have to read that next.

4 1/2 stars.

I didn't like Amos as a narrator, but other than that the book is pretty good.

The story is good, but I couldn't get the past the fact that the medical research isn't real.

The characters in this book are very well written, especially Venetia, who is delightful. It's so refreshing to read good historical fiction after reading too many badly written historical romances.

Charlotte Brontë
“I do not think, sir, you have any right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you have made of your time and experience.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Maud Hart Lovelace
“People were always saying to Margaret, 'Well, Julia sings and Betsy writes. Now what is little Margaret going to do?' Margaret would smile politely, for she was very polite, but privately she stormed to Betsy with flashing eyes, 'I'm not going to do anything. I want to just live. Can't people just live?”
Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy and Joe

Katherine Mansfield
“The pleasure of all reading is doubled when one lives with another who shares the same books.”
Katherine Mansfield

Elizabeth Hardwick
“The greatest gift is the passion for reading.
It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites,
it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.
It is a moral illumination.”
Elizabeth Hardwick

Jane Austen
“One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other.”
Jane Austen, Emma
