Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Vintage) by Cheryl Strayed
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Vintage)

Autumnseer, October 23, 2014

When I first started reading this book I was a bit taken aback as it was not what I thought it would be. But quite soon I was engrossed, inspired, related in many personal ways to Cheryl and dreaded that the book, and the journey I'd taken with her, was soon coming to an end. I have recommended this book many times to people and will be first in line when the movie comes out Dec 2014.

Just Kids by Patti Smith
Just Kids

Autumnseer, January 1, 2012

I was, admittedly, never a big fan of punk rocker Patti Smith, but with all the buzz about her book I decided to read it. I cannot tell you the feeling I got and the respect I gained in reading this book. She so perfectly captured the era and world that she lived in and I understood the complicated, deep relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe. Through it all she remained true to herself, being the true artist that she is. For the record I did purchase her CD, Gone Again, and it is now a favorite of mine. Highly recommended.

Folly by Laurie R King

Autumnseer, September 24, 2011

Laurie B. King writes in depth and wonderfully. Folly is about a woman grappling with depression and possible insanity who tries to build a home by herself on an inherited island called Folly. What ensures is great reading!

Another terrific book by Laurie R. King. The first one I’ve read in her Kate Martinelli series. Several plot lines, all of which were very interesting, especially when she becomes close with her partners stepdaughter, who eventually gets kidnapped. It's really very good. Kate is a lesbian and it’s treated really as a byline, no big deal as it should be, and her characters are so clear and likeable that you really feel like you are in their world instantly. She is a favorite author.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand (Thorndike Paperback Bestsellers) (Large Print) by Helen Simonson
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand (Thorndike Paperback Bestsellers) (Large Print)

Autumnseer, September 20, 2011

There's nothing better than a good English novel and this was a classic. Written with intelligence and English style and charm, you come to love the character of Major Pettigrew and the lovely story that unfolds with those who live around him and, in particular, his growing friendship with the shopkeeper, Mrs. Ali who is from Pakistan. This is the author's debut and I certainly hope there will be more to follow.
