The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie
The Enchantress of Florence

lsumner, August 12, 2008

In this novel dreams can be more real than living flesh and sometimes what lives might become only a fantasy. Salman Rushdie is a master of words and a spinner of tales that never fail to entangle. Enjoy being trapped within the pages of this enchanting book.

Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain by Oliver Sacks
Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain

lsumner, July 30, 2008

Did you know that for some people the association between color and music is more than metaphor? Has your child ever said “That piece in D major is blue.”? Perhaps after a stroke one of your relatives was convinced that every musical interval has a different taste to the tongue? Learn about the condition of Synesthesia and much more about the way music can affect the brain in this fascinating look at neuroscience by author and researcher Oliver Sacks.

Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book by Brian Froud and Terry Jones
Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book

lsumner, July 3, 2008

I couldn't say enough to rave about this book. Brian Froud is a master of fantasy, a genius, and one of my favorite artists. If you think sticking pins through butterflies is bad, you might not want to peek within the pages. But if you delight in the impishly wicked like I do, you'll love Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book.

Lady Cottington's Fairy Album by Brian Froud
Lady Cottington's Fairy Album

lsumner, July 3, 2008

This album was delightfully wicked, impishly delightful, a little on the gross side at times, but overall a fantastic, imaginative, original, and fascinating look at fairies. Once again, Brian Froud's artwork is superbly displayed.

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

lsumner, July 3, 2008

Because I am not bilingual this book was difficult for me to read. Thankfully, I like a challenge. It would be awesome practice for anyone trying to learn Spanish. At times the author lost me as he switched between the perspectives of different characters, but each character was well thought out and their depth was enlightening. The format of the dialogue was strange. I felt like I had to read very carefully and take my time to get the full meaning of the text, which is an unusual change of pace for someone who is usually a speed reader.
