Looking for Alaska by John Green
Looking for Alaska

kitten60, March 1, 2014

this is every bit an adult novel also...as the female character, Alaska is a genius with a manic streak. She be-devils the school she attends and has multiple young men willing ti do what not for her..only she is a daring, wild joyous friend that I would have want to know..back in the day. This is searingly thrilling and sad...most of all..real..beautifully written with characters you get to know through their weaknesses and strengths.

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
The Silent Wife

kitten60, March 1, 2014

I am so happy that I bought this book... a cleverly insecure woman finds herself in an impossible situation brought on by her lack of attention to financial details...like getting married to the creep who has all the money. This once "pleasing" female gets herself together at the great surprise of everyone and...well actually..it would cruel to go further now...

It's Fine by Me by Per Petterson
It's Fine by Me

kitten60, February 10, 2014

From such a great write comes a trivial book that might be used to teach 2nd grade English..with too many sentences like " I get out of bed and go down to the kitchen. ..."I fill the kettle and out it on and stand waiting" "The water is boiling. I take a handfull if coffee from the brown tin and drop it in, waiting for it to sink, cut 2 slices of bread and see the clock above the stove" If you think these sentences are rare, I will tell you to open the book at any random page and you will find more trivial, mundane chatter that should never have accumulated to make a book. By the way, IT is not fine by me.

The Cuckoo's Calling (Large Print) by Robert Galbraith
The Cuckoo's Calling (Large Print)

kitten60, December 3, 2013

Maybe it starts a little slow but this detective story builds momentum. The characters are just that. The murder is devious and the plot twisted. all in all a good read. No wonder Harry Potter author is so successful. The author's first "known" murder mystery rivals Paretsky/Milhone

Human Behavior Theory and Social Work Practice, 2e by Robert R. Greene
Human Behavior Theory and Social Work Practice, 2e

kitten60, September 25, 2013

although I give books away all the time...this book is such a well written understandable informative collection of human behavior theories that I refer to it after 20 years of first having it assigned in my MSW program. looking for a usable summary of Freud, Erikson, Piaget, Rogers, social learning theory, group dynamics? yes you will find cognitive theory all around but here the usability of the information is the best I have found
