Beautiful, cerebral, and thought-provoking. I want to read it again. This is one of those books that makes a deep and lasting impression.

The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Midnight Palace

Debbie, September 1, 2011

I can't review this because I haven't read it yet. But I know I will (and soon) because I love Carlos Ruiz Zafon's writing. "Shadow of the Wind" is one of my favorites.

The Gift of Rain by Tan Twan Eng
The Gift of Rain

Debbie, January 1, 2011

Beautifully written story of love, war, family, and betrayal in the atmosphere of Malaya starting in 1939. The main character is Phillip, half Chinese and half British, who is not fully of either culture. I love the writer's style and the inclusion of themes such as Asian philosophy, aikido, wartime intrigue, and hard choices made (and the consequences of those choices). Deep and resonant story.
