Fever 1793

Effie, August 17, 2009

This short narrative makes for a realistic read of a historical time period, when the yellow fever was running rampant in Philadelphia in 1793. The narrator is a young independent girl--probably moreso than she would have actually been allowed to be at the time, but it makes for a nice feminist punch for the person reading it today.

A Faint Cold Fear by Karin Slaughter
A Faint Cold Fear

Effie, August 12, 2009

There are no end of surprising plot twists and tunrs in this book, especially the final one. A little grusesome to read at times, but the characters are solid and real.
