Dark Tower #01: The Gunslinger by Stephen King
Dark Tower #01: The Gunslinger

ReaderOfBooks, September 3, 2011

When people think of Stephen King, most of them immediately think that he only writes horror novels. This book proves them all wrong. It is about a gunslinger in a dying world chasing down a mysterious 'Man in Black', who has the answers to the gunslinger's most important questions. It is a remarkable, fast - paced book that is rewarding in the end. I thought this book was amazing, and it is truly one of my favorites.

This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life by David Foster Wallace
This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life

ReaderOfBooks, August 1, 2011

I think this is probably the most meaningful thing I have ever read. David Foster Wallace never stops amazing me with his intellect, passion and, most importantly, kindness.

Maximum Ride #1: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson
Maximum Ride #1: The Angel Experiment

ReaderOfBooks, July 21, 2011

Maximum Ride is such an exciting book. There is action from the very beginning, and it doesn't stop until the book is over. Max is a great character. It's easy to feel the same way she does when anything happens. What also makes her a good character is that she changes by the end of the book. At the beginning, she is unwilling to think of the rest of the flock as equal to her, but by the end she realizes that they are all just as important as her, and that they couldn't survive if they were without even one of them. I would recommend this book; it's a great read!

Consider the Lobster: And Other Essays by David Foster Wallace
Consider the Lobster: And Other Essays

ReaderOfBooks, July 19, 2011

David Foster Wallace is one of my favorite writers of all time. His ideas are smart and valuable. I really like the essay "Consider the Lobster" . It made a lot of sense, and it really made me think about what people choose to eat and the lengths they will go to in order to eat that particular food. Wallace writes as if he is talking to you in person, and that makes reading this book even better.

Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse
Out of the Dust

ReaderOfBooks, April 3, 2011

I love this book! It's very easy to connect with Billie Jo Kelby. She is a good character, in that she overcomes her difficulties with her hands and with forgiving her father for her mother's death. I really like how the book is written in free verse poems. It makes the reader focus more on the events that happen, and how Billie Jo feels about them. The end of the book is the best part, in my opinion.
