Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan

Loved the sweeping narrative, the plot twists, the politicking, and the battle scenes. Much better written than the last one. The love story with Min still stunk and was annoying, but not as bad as the one with Aviendha in book #5.

This book annoyed me constantly. The story constantly seemed on the verge of going somewhere but hardly did, the conversation was stilted and awkward and the portrayal of the women in it --- grrr. The middle fantasy where Rand and Aviendha suddenly f...more

The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan

Generally pretty good, but by this book, and especially by book #4, I am so tired, tired, tired of the way Robert Jordan portrays women. ALL of them seem constantly obsessed with what they are wearing, pondering how revealing it is and what their lov...more

Decided it was time to try the Wheel of Time series. This is the prequel, written after many of the other books had been written but set before. The world set up was great, the characters compelling, and I enjoyed the premise. Some of the implied pro...more

The End of the Suburbs by Leigh Gallagher

Interesting book about how demographic changes (smaller families, fewer kids, aging population), the economy, and lifestyle choices are changing the face of the suburbs (more crime, more blight, empty homes esp. in places like Vegas) and driving inte...more

Didn't finish it before I had to take it back to the library, but what I read was very compelling -- very interesting stories of women overcoming challenges, enduring hardships, and expressing their faith. The editing for each narrative is smooth, ma...more

I love reading anything about China and especially about their political system's effects on everyday lives. So naturally, I expected to love this. I didn't. I think it was the awkward translation, but it was hard to feel connected to any of the auth...more
