Great novel. First time reading it and I'm sorry I didn't read it sooner. Great story about desire, intention, perceptions, and the things that drive people. A couple of unexpected plot twists in my opinion, which made it an even better read! I need to read Fitzgerald more often...

Tinkers by Paul Harding

abookworm1966, July 17, 2012

Very provocative novel...poetic and ethereal. I was compelled to see what happened through to the end. Can't wait to see what else Mr. Harding has to offer us.

Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Good read...great perspective from en entire town who knew Santiago was going to die, practically watched it happen, and did nothing. Marquez's writing never disappoints.

Intense read and very thought provoking. No doubt Leguin was ahead of her time when she wrote this novel. Childbirth and gender, while not the main focus of the story plays a strong role and leaves one questioning the hegemony of modern society and the roles imposed on all of us.
