Dear American Airlines by Jonathan Miles
Dear American Airlines

carriewriter, September 11, 2011

I'm reading this now and really enjoying it. I love the framework of the narrator being stuck in an airport and using that as a platform to expand on his life and relationships -kind of like "Up in the Air" without the flying part. I'm curious to learn more about Jonathan Miles and what he's planning next.

The Surrendered by Chang-rae Lee

This was my favorite book of 2010. I first read Chang-rae Lee's
"Aloft" several years ago, and loved it, so I was excited about this one. An entirely different premise and concept, very moving characters and situations, you can tell each word was thought about carefully for maximum impact. I highly recommend this book and all his others.

Aloft by Chang-Rae Lee

Excellent book that focuses on relationships, family, status, values, and a very interesting view on modern life. Lots of surprises and plot twists, without feeling contrived. This author really knows what he is doing and gives new meaning to the idea that great fiction should give everyday people extraordinary circumstances and see what happens.

Pilgrims by Elizabeth Gilbert
Pilgrims

I'm giving this book a high rating even though I haven't read it yet! Looking forward to reading, as I just saw an interview with Gilbert and she is really interesting, plus a real writer's writer in the sense that she really gets what kind of details the reader needs.
