The Cider House Rules by John Irving
The Cider House Rules

joaneh, May 4, 2008

Cider House Rules was a very engaging book; one that I will probably read again. It is a coming of age story of a young boy growing up in an orphanage. It is filled with unusual perspective and highly intelligent writing, as well as a great deal of humor. It will surely be a classic.

The Book of Ruth by Jane Hamilton
The Book of Ruth

joaneh, May 4, 2008

This book of Jane Hamilton's "The Book of Ruth", is even better than her "A Map of the World". It is a bare bones look at the sad, yet humorous life of a young girl in a small town as she comes of age in total innocence. The small town characters are well-developed and believable. It was a very good read.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle by Betty Macdonald
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle

joaneh, May 3, 2008

This is a wonderful little book that was read to me as a child, 50 years ago, and still holds its charm as I read it to my grandchildren. Mrs. PiggleWiggle is an expert in childpsychology in a fun way, utilizing practices that psychologists later would call new. A truly delightful book, as are her others in this series.
