message 8: by southpaw285 (new)

southpaw285 Just finished Sybil... a very fascinating read.

message 9: by southpaw285 (new)

southpaw285 I just finished July's People by Nadine Gordimer. It is a very interesting story about couple escaping with their servant, July to his village in order to survive the war. A bit choppy, but an interesting read.

Klehmenteen (Kanni) | 31 comments Definitely went to the website and was alarmed by the ovulation counter... O.O

Thanks for not commenting on my list, ROSE.

southpaw285 Just finished Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. It was a wonderful book. Very sad, intense, but very good.

message 12: by southpaw285 (last edited Jun 03, 2010 02:41PM) (new)

southpaw285 Okay, so I just finished Amsterdam by Ian McEwan. It just wasn't that good for me.

It started out great, but then seemed to wander in different directions. While I can appreciate that to a certain extent, I just didn't get it here.

2 Stars

message 13: by southpaw285 (new)

southpaw285 I just finsihed I Am Third (TV tie-in): The Inspiration for Brian's Song by Gale Sayers...a really good read.

I watched the movie, "Brian Song" back in the late '70's and like many others of that time, was very moved by the relationship between Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo.

4 Stars

message 14: by southpaw285 (new)

southpaw285 Just finished Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, and what an amazing story! I have no idea how I've made it all these years without reading such a wonderful book.

message 15: by southpaw285 (last edited Jul 21, 2010 03:54PM) (new)

southpaw285 I just finished Queen Isabella: Treachery, Adultery, and Murder in Medieval England by Alison Weir. I enjoyed the book tremendously. It was a 5 star rating for me. That is not to be taken as an indication that I understood or agreed with Isabella...neither did I understand or agree with King Edward II. However, I do find both individuals very fascinating, and I enjoyed this author's perspective.
