Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
Flight Behavior

jodib9, November 28, 2012

Barbara Kingsolver has done it again. I love the way her books depict the complexities of everyday life. This novel brings together the complicated ways in which people view and interact with the environment as well as rural poverty, education, and love.

The Neruda Case by Roberto Ampuero
The Neruda Case

I started reading this book aloud to my partner. The way the author set the scene with social and political detail reminded me of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. As a listener, my partner found it difficult to get into wanting something to happen. As the reader and a lover of Latin American fiction and Pablo Neruda's poetry, I was hooked and the novel did not disappoint with romance and political intrigue hopping from Chile to Mexico, Cuba, and East Germany.

The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty
The Chaperone

jodib9, November 28, 2012

I loved this book. Set in the 1920s in Wichita, Kansas, the novel tells the story of a woman who returns to New York as a chaperone for a young dancer soon to be silent film actress seeking to learn about her past. It is also more than that, the story depicts the complexity of love, sexuality, and conceptions of morality.

The Rope (Anna Pigeon Mysteries)

Anna Pigeon is in a quandary. This new novel has her learning the ropes and in need I'd a rope as it takes us back to Anna's first job in a National Park. Fun!
