The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
The Five People You Meet in Heaven

ann_locates, March 13, 2010

Why is this mediocre writings on a subject that is magical brought up today?
There are some books that we can enjoy reading time and time again but this is not one.
Albom has not been able to make most remember his writing as we care little for most of the people
he writes about.. Morrie and the catchy title makes that one name that I can remember.
I could wish to meet these 5 characters he writes about but somehow, I do not. Nothing in here
that even remotely is my vision of HEAVEN.Not worth my time..

Shadow Tag by Louise Erdrich
Shadow Tag

ann_locates, March 11, 2010

The rising and fallings of the sound of sirens affect all of us and this book prepares us for the end.
Louise Erdrich has captured my attention since the beginning line in LOVE MEDIDINE and this
story of suburban marriage during a long winter in the north country can still do it. The truth
and clarity of a red and blue relationship is not easy to describe but the scenes of cooking,
children's innocense, and social reactions could have happened to any of us. Irene and Gill
portray the times we live in although the underpinnings of 1800s and art of George Catlin and Politics
that led to esecution of Louis Riel are there, too. People around the world are reading this and
love it that a man in Tuscanny posted in face book that when the powere was out, he spent 24 hours
with this book.. I found it a quick read and it lingers in my mind..

So Big by Edna Ferber
So Big

ann_locates, June 5, 2009

All we need is a president elected from Illinois area
to revive this book about a Mother's ambition for her son. Does anyone see Blagovitch and Obama's senate
seat sale here?

Was it love that prompted Selina to strive to ever advance her son, Sobig DeJong, from a truck farmer to a splendid office on LaSalle street? A Mother's story
from a story teller who told it like it was. This book is about a real Chicago house.

The Face on Your Plate: The Truth about Food by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson
The Face on Your Plate: The Truth about Food

ann_locates, March 25, 2009

Portland is the city of roses and wish a rose
to Jeffrey and Powells. Does not mean that this book
captures the truth. Come to the wide open prairies
and note the grass waving like an endless sea.
Does it need to be harvested and converted to protein needed to sustain life?
That is the question and won't be answered in this book. Read it and see.

The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb
The Hour I First Believed

ann_locates, November 19, 2008

This is not as good as SHES COME UNDONE
but so much better than the others he has written.
Most of us only have one book in us.
That being said, reader see different things
and Lamb establishes himself in our
minds as a narrator that is real to all.
Will read this book many times and already read over
portions of Caelum's story as it seems
to be a part of my life and times.
And that is the Magic of a great book.
