Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman
Einstein's Dreams

JLH3179, July 6, 2010

Who knew that reading about Einstein's theory of relativity could be so enjoyable? It is a very whimsical and thoughtful book about different concepts of time and how life goes on.

Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence by Nick Bantock
Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence

JLH3179, July 6, 2010

Such a beautiful book and highly recommended, as are all of the other books in this series. The author is also the artist, and you really get into the correspondence between Grifin and Sabine. You can touch the postcards and take letters out of envelopes, and the different styles for the characters tell you even more about them than their dialogue can convey. Truly a wonderful reading experience.

Pet Sematary by Stephen King
Pet Sematary

JLH3179, July 6, 2010

How do any of us respond to death and grief? That is the underlying issue to Stephen King's amazing novel. Although it has plenty of horror to interest his hard-core fans and casual readers, it really drives home the extent some people go to to hold on to things that we love. A great summer read.

Christine by Stephen King
Christine

JLH3179, July 6, 2010

This is one of Stephen King's older novels, but it is one of the most enjoyable. I have read it many times, and each time it is disturbing. Although it has Stephen King's standard supernatural elements, it also is a tale about how dangerous obsessions of any kind are. A wonderful read.

We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda by Philip Gourevitch
We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda

JLH3179, July 6, 2010

This is a superb book telling about the heartbreaking genocide in Rwanda in the 1990s. It is a comprehensive history on the events that went largely ignored by the press and other nations until they gained too much momentum to stop. It is thought-provoking about what obligations humanity have to one another. It is a powerful and painful book, but it is a rewarding read.
