I read this to satisfy the teenagers in my life. I was pleasantly surprised on the literary merit of a teen heartbreak romance. The vocabulary and language was thoughtful and smart (Sometimes a little too smart...I hate characters who are just a litt...more

The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

A solid 3 and 1/2 stars. It covers similar ground as Unbroken without the same heart or storytelling. It was interesting and satisfying in the end, but spent way too long detailing the tiniest details of every single boat race leading up to the Olymp...more

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Clear rating
This is the book equivalent of a romantic comedy. It is formulaic and total fluff, and I was not surprised to discover after reading it that it began as a screenplay, not a novel. The twist to the story is that the protagonist is a quirky man with un...more

Life in a Jar by Jack Mayer

Kingsolver's latest has the same rich language and collection of characters that I love in all her fiction. Sometimes she is almost sickeningly clever. She can't help but temper her brilliance with a dose of preachiness however...another aspect of he...more

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

I equally loved and hated this book which made it difficult to review. Strout's writing is complex and brilliant and deserving of the Pulitzer. In a short series of stories she manages to create a well-drawn community and touch on a depth of human ex...more
