For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway
For Whom the Bell Tolls

James Crisan, January 20, 2012

I am chagrined that it took me so long to get around to reading the best book I read in 2011. On the bright side, having only previously read Hemingway short stories, plus The Old Man and the Sea, I am now obsessed enough with Hemingway that I am rapidly devouring the rest of the novels in chronological order.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #07) by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #07)

James Crisan, January 1, 2010

Just when you thought that Rowling had an impossible task to tie up all the loose ends to the series in a satisfactory bow, she astonishes us by incorporating the entire story arc of the deathly hallows into this perfect series finale. The writing is crisp, the plot is perfect, and every last emotion is exhausted in the reader by the end of the book (including the great epilogue). This is one of the most satisfying books I have ever read, let alone in this decade.
